BOWLS Scion xB Tuner Challenge

BOWLS LA, the lifestyle boutique and Honda Ruckus/Zoomer specialists hailing from San Marino, California, have been chosen by Scion to participate in the 2009 Tuner Challenge. Competing against two other teams, BOWLS are converting an xB into a 70’s SOCAL styled pickup with a matching Ruckus residing in the tray. All three projects are going to be unveiled at the upcoming ’09 SEMA show, with the winners taking home a tasty $10,000. Anyone wanna front me a plane ticket and accommodation for some exclusive Build Threads coverage? Haha, didn’t think so.

Check out the slick rending BOWLS have released, along with their equally impressive video showcasing the start of the fabrication work. To read the Tuner Challenge press-release from Scion, click here.
