okay...I'm starting this thread because it is my absolute favorite thread over at "brand X" scion website. It's fun and we ALL can relate to the unique stuff (aka crazed, weird, bizarre, etc etc...) we do when we become owners of a BOX, Toaster Pilots, In the InBox, etc etc etc....

You know you drive an xB when you spot another xB in the walmart parking lot and you follow him around until he parks and you ask him how he is lovin his car etc etc...and his wife :eek: thinks you are some kind of crazed stalker lady. hehe

...you know you drive an xB when you spend more time on deciding where to put your new decals than you do on arranging the furniture in your living room.:)

You know ur a B driver. . .

. . . when you honk your horn at the B going the other way and the old lady driving it flips the bird at you.

. . . when you're shopping at best buy and your GF/BF says that you should just park your B next to the washer/dryers and refridgerators so it can be with it's family.

. . . when someone asks you, while you filling up your car at the gas station, "How's the milage on that boxy hybrid?"

...you start to get panic attacks and depression when it's in the shop for longer than 2 hours.

...you purposely park in the far rear of the lot and then use the excuse of "good exercise" for why you did it.

...you look for wide, empty streets after a snowstorm to purposefully watch the lights dim when the traction control kicks in.

...people look in awe or disgust at your vehicle - and there's no in-between on this one!

...someone asks the guys driving xBs how manly the guy is, the girls on how cute the car is.

...you spend three minutes "warming up" the car after a fill-up to take time to calculate your gas mileage, usually followed by laughter and a cheer.

...you consider a problem, an antidote, a philosophy, a style issue, the source of inspiration and a desire to stand out with just one word: rims.

...you absolutely refuse to carry large loads of junk or move people's dirty stuff, even with countless tarps and their excuse that "but you've got a lot of space in there!"

...people should consider riding in your vehicle an honor, so they should really enjoy the experience - especially if you just cleaned it.

(speaking of which) ...you don't think spending more than $10 on an automatic car wash, which must ABSOLUTELY be touchless, is a bad price.

(or) ...you think a car wax that cost more than $20 a bottle is an investment, not a waste.

...you can give the descriptions and/or labels of all your CDs, music equipment and sound quality in the xB, but can't find Ottawa on a map.

...you spend more time deciding between intakes and filters than you do at the polling booth.

And on that note, get your ass out and VOTE!

Please feel free to debate and comment on this list at a later time.. this list is not a definite description of all xB drivers and owners.

...youre convinced that the japanese enjoy fckin with american heads by putting such a BIG car in such a small box.


...you find yourself scribbling metaphors about life on napkins in restaurants as you are inspired by your xB that you have parked within sight, which, when you look up at, you have to fight this overwhelming urge to just get up and go out there and hug the darn thing. (or is it just me?:rolleyes: hehehe)

....when you hug your xB every day and give it a little kiss on it's nose. :D

...when you've done all the things on this list. :D

Haha.. maybe we can edit this one for the opposite..

...you find yourself ready to pounce on anyone who even looks like they could do something bad to your box while you stare at it through the window.

or

...you find yourself demanding to the host/hostess that your seat is on a particular side of the restaurant.

(Guilty of both! And I'm going out to vote in an hour.. HINT HINT! Yes, I feel political. VideoTheVote.org)

you know you drive an xB when. . .

. . . you just let go of your gas pedal to slow down on the freeway.

. . . you lock the steering wheel getting out of the xB.

. . . you slam on the accelorator pedal and the tach revs real high but you're only going five more miles an hour.

. . . you open the back windows on the freeway and you go deaf for a second.

. . . you can step out of your xB instead of rolling onto the parking lot.

. . . you and your friends get out of the xB it reminds you of the circus and those little clown cars.

...you have a bucket of detailing sprays and micro fiber cloth in your car.

...you spend more time pampering the box instead of the gf.

...you spot 'em, point out every single box you see on the streets.

...you go to the gas station to buy cigs and something to drink and that's it. the cashier lady says she misses you. hahaha. maybe it's just me.

...you get your paycheck. instead of thinkin groceries, clothes, any necessities. there's a cloud aboved your head and the xb is in it.

You know you own an xB when. . .

You see another box in traffic and try to catch up so you can compare mods.
When you catch up you hope a third box will come along so you can be a caravan.

You look for boxes with club stickers so you can post them on the “spotted” thread.

Coworkers, friends and random strangers start quizzing you about the box because they’re thinking of getting one.

You look for other boxes in the lot to park next to.



I’ve got a new one.
You know you own a modded xB when. . .
Your boyfriend borrows your box and gets wierded out by other people watching him in traffic.

You’ve used the phrase “hot wheels” to describe it.

Your coworkers have become used to leaving work and finding you showing off your latest lights in the parking lot.

Your boss is tired of you asking for Sundays off because there is a show.
