About “Short Bus”

As I live rural & the winters can be a little harsh I had been wanting a 4 X 4 for quite a few years. I had been looking into a Jeep TJ Sport when the Short Bus appeared on one of the local lots. It was lust at first sight & love at first test drive. I traded in my 2000 GMC Sonoma & never looked back.

About “Torched Toaster”

This is my 2006.5 Scion xB Release Series 4.0. #2401 of 2500.

This will be my daily driver while the Mustang is under the knife.

I am quite surprised by how taken I am with this car! It's like driving a little go kart! The factory color-changing paint always gets an extra look.

So far I've upgraded the factory stereo to an Ipod head unit, Exel 17" wheels, and limo tint. Next I did the fog lights, arm rest, and lowering springs.
