What’s Featured at Scion: David Choe’s Monster Truck Scion xB and the Neu Vintage Scion tC

We’ve got another round of SEMA Show builds for this week’s edition of What’s Featured at Scion, with David Choe’s Monster Truck Scion xB and the Neu-Vintage Scion tC by Eddie Hahm on display out front. The first generation Scions made their respective debuts at the 2007 and 2008 SEMA Shows, turning heads in Las Vegas before they eventually made their way to Scion HQ.

For reasons that should be pretty apparent, the Monster Truck Scion xB was by far one of the most talked about builds at the 2007 SEMA Show. The graphics, all done by David Choe (who has also collaborated with us on projects through Scion AV), covered the exterior of the xB, which has been lifted and set on top of a full off road suspension. The rear windows, pillars, and hatch were all removed, and replaced with a fully functional truck bed for more cargo capacity. The original build featured a drum kit in the back, though that has since been removed.

Eddie Hahm of Fast Eddie’s Garage went in a completely different direction when building the Neu-Vintage Scion tC, drawing inspiration from both hot rods and WWII fighter planes from years past. The rivets that outline the car’s panels add to its industrial styling, while its wire wheels contribute to the tC’s throwback look.

The Neu-Vintage Scion tC also received a makeover under the hood, where it was outfitted with new camshafts, a cold air intake from AEM, 02 Motorworks racing headers, and ported/polished heads. Its stock suspension was swapped out for a set of F2 coilovers, while anti-roll bars and strut bars help stiffen its frame.

This year’s SEMA Show is coming up quick, so be sure to check back often for more custom builds!
