Daniel Gutierrez has a passion for Scions and he modified that passion on a 2008 Scion xB. His vehicle was on display for everyone to see at SEMA 2008 (Specialty Equipment Market Association) at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada.

Gutierrez had a prime spot with his feature vehicle outside Central Hall where it attracted a lot of attention. It took three months to modify his Scion. He chose Flat Black for his custom paint job and hit rain on the drive from Southern California to SEMA.

Las Vegas Boulevard was packed with vehicles during SEMA, but Gutierrez took his Scion down the Strip. “This is my second time at SEMA,” he said. “Part of the fun is showing off my Scion.”
