Scion recognizes some California born talent with a couple of customized SEMA Show bound models.  A custom Scion tC inspired by American thrash metal band Slayer and a Scion xB customized by pro skateboarder Riley Hawk will debut at the upcoming show in Las Vegas.
For those not familiar, Riley Hawk is son of famous pro skateboarder Tony Hawk.  He is a rock ’n’ roll aficionado and appreciates 70s style.  You will see elements of these three passions in the xB along with room for skateboards, high-end sound system, and classic yellow and orange paint job.   Other classic details are interior wood grain, bubble windows, 8-track player, and shag carpet.  Scott Kanemura of KMA Productions led the xB build.
“Every element of this Scion xB represents some part of my life, I’m looking forward to showing it at SEMA and having people check it out!” said Riley.
On the more aggressive end the Slayer inspired tC sports coupe will have a multimedia machine with amps, tower speakers, customer mixer, and 32-inch monitor for media playback.   The build was led by Mike Vu of MV DESIGNZ.
“Slayer’s fans are going to be excited when we reveal what a metal-inspired Scion tC looks like, Working with Scion has given us another way to reach new audiences and inspire them to keep going down their own paths.” said Slayer guitarist Kerry King.
Historically Scion brings customized vehicles to the SEMA Show.   We expect to also see three custom Scion FR-S sport coupes designed as part of the 10th annual Scion Tuner Challenge.
