2 as of tonight.

the first time someone asked me was when i was at the supermarket parking lot last month. a curious old couple (that drive an old Volvo) came up to me and asked "what car is this? i've never seen them before" i said its a Scion. then they started to asked many questions like "where can you buy this?", "how was the ride?", "how much is it?", and etc. they might be interested in them.

well tonight, when i was filling up the gas at the gas station, an old lady (drive a Lincoln) came up to me and said "what kind of car is this? this is my second time to see it on the road" i said "its a Scion". the she asked "whats the mpg you get on this?" i said a little more than 30. then she said "is this a 4 or a 6?" at that point, i was wondering how would a 6 get inside the box, lol! then she walks around my xB while she was waiting for her car to fill up. she said "wow, this car is very unique! but what dont you like about this car?" man, i was speechless since i got no complaint about the car, so i said "nothing".

did any of the people asked you anything about your xB yet?

When I first got it, it seemed like everytime I went out someone would ask. Now since you see them everywhere, It doesn't happen as much. But it still happens.

How could you have not seen one in the past three years??

We drove to Laughlin and people were gawking at us there like we were in a low-flying UFO or something! There were a few people that asked us what kinda car it was, "an Element?" LMAO!!! :rolleyes: But they were genuinely curious.

Not one single person here in L.A. has asked me. Most barely even glance my direction, they don't care. :( My boss did say, and I'm sure she meant it in a nice way -lol- that it's the "ugliest" car she's ever seen. She who drives a FORD. ;)

Yeah, it still happens more than I can tell you. (Even in Cali!!) I get the "Element" thing too! Nobody bags on it (at least to my face), but the "curiousity factor" is still there. As mention before, where are these people living? :confused:

The xB is cutest car with the biggest personality out there, and nobody can tell me differently! I remember what I used to think of it, so I just gotta say that those people haven't "met" the xB like you have.

The older I get, I tell ya, the less and less I worry what other people think about me and the stuff I like. :D (psst ... corvette's are the ugly ones! hehe)

I dont know why the club thing bothers her!! My friend who told me about the job has one and I have two so she thinks we're overboard!

I bet she really just hates the fact that she drives a HUGE truck and fills up on fifty bucks! I fill up on twenty one! ;) She always asks me about my gas mileage! LOL

Corvette clubs are for guys who are lacking in the "package" department. We don't have to buy an expensive sports car to compensate for our insecurities. The truth of the matter is, guys who drive the xB spend more time in a box than any other vehicle. ;) I think I'll work on making a new stereotype, kinda like the 'big hands, big.....". The new one, "small Box, Big.....". :D

I keep getting the "element" thing. Drives me nuts. Last time was at the grocery store, and I told the lady "no, it isnt an element, theyre just too curvy".

I hate that! Only in the drive-thru I get that, and "oh, I love these things! It's like a baby Hummer!"
