Vantastic: Tony Hawk's Son Builds 70's Van Inspired Scion Xb

If you’re old enough to ‘respect the van’, then you’ll love this 70’s style Scion xB. It’s got orange stripes, tacky wood, vinyl seats, and Cragars! But it was designed by a 21-year-old, and that will make you feel ancient…

Tony Hawk is a legend in the skateboarding world, and his son Riley is fast becoming a hero to the current generation of face-planting board surfers. To get some attention for his burgeoning career, the young scion teamed with Scion (couldn’t resist the obvious pun) and Scott Kanemura of KMA Productions to build this shag-tastic 70’s van tribute for the 2014 SEMA show. And it’s totally rad.

Based on the 2015 Scion xB, this funky little shaggin-wagon features a custom orange stripe paintjob, blanked-out rear side windows, a fish bowl window, Cragar wheels wrapped in white letter BFG tires, authentic chrome van side mirrors, and a high-top roof that opens to reveal a selection of hip-breaking skateboards. If the outside doesn’t have you searching for your bong, the interior certainly will. There’s brown vinyl seats, a wooden dash, chrome window cranks and vintage door latch handles, an 8-track player, a CB radio, a mini fridge, Pioneer audio system, and a shag carpet headliner! Let me repeat that; Shag Carpet!

Riley Hawk may not be old enough to remember when vans were actually cool, but at least his marketing people are. And we’d like to thank them for this funkadelic trip down memory lane.

How much you want to bet young Mr. Hawk has a 6-ft bong to go with his vantastic creation?
