Here's a Scion xB that stands out from the crowd. Behold, this 2008 Scion xB with just 180 original miles. That alone is weird enough, but it gets stranger: This xB was a custom build for the SEMA show, designed in partnership with Scion and professional skateboarder Riley Hawk. And it's very different from your usual xB.

To start, this xB is bright orange on the outside, with custom wheels, a custom paint job and a pop-top roof, apparently for additional head room. But it goes well beyond that: The interior is also totally customized, with old-school brown leather seats that look like they're out of a 1970s Cadillac or Buick -- combined with fake wood accents on basically every surface, along with a fake wood steering wheel.

In back, there's more craziness: In addition to more wood trim and shag carpeting on the ceiling, this xB has a custom storage space for skateboards -- no surprise, right? There's also a rear-mounted TV, huge speakers, and a plug so you can plug in your electric guitar and start jamming -- or, at least, that's what the photos show.

The ad itself lists a wide variety of other, more subtle customization, which includes a "motorized work table," shag carpeting on the floor, shaved door handles, 1970s-style lap belts and more. The Carfax report seems to show that this xB was owned by Toyota from 2008, when it was new, to 2016, before going on to a second owner in Southern California. It's now offered, presumably by that owner, in Los Angeles with 180 miles for $25,000.
