The Van was kinda cool looking.
They are suposed to be popular in Japan. They even have a pickup version. It is a toyota.

It's a new division of Toyota and right now only available in California.

Kinda caters to the ricer crowd

That almost looks like the thing out by HONDA. It's called the Element.

I was test driving the Sequoia and Landcruiser a couple weekends ago and they had one on the lot. Supposed to be targeted at Honda Element market. It will be treated as a stand-alone dealership from Toyota. Supposedly they will have a highly customizable option ordering process.

Since you can't sell an element right now, it looks to be a booming market. Maybe they'll sell in japan, but it looks like a flop here.

Not being sold here yet Matt...this was one was a salesman's that shipped it in from CA for his personal use. From what I gathered from my saleman, the dealerships want nothing to do with Scion....too much risk.
