Here’s a nice new concept for a reality show that every car-loving man – and woman - on the face of this world would love to be a part of: have six people duke it out for the enviable opportunity to modify a Scion xB.

Oh wait, Scion’s already doing that.

In a new Web series that’s sure to be must-watch entertainment for a lot of us, “Reinventing the Wheels” features two film makers, two DJs, a special-effects make-up artist and a pastry chef – yes, a pastry chef – are putting their car design talents to good use by having their own individual preliminary designs on a Scion xB. And that’s just episode 1.

We’re pretty sure that as the show progresses, things are going to get a little more interesting. In the meantime, check out episode 1 to see how the six contestants all stack up against each other.

To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
