Our Scion Champion
Scott has been with us since 2002 and launched Scion in 2003 and 2004 when the brand came to the Mid-West. He put on events such as the Scion Skate Show, Scion Pinups and Shine-N-Dine as well as set up many other partnerships with fashion and music giants in the 417. Supporting local tuner community and even traveling to events and shows all over the Mid-West, Scott has proven his dedication to the brand and the culture. Driving in his 2005 Thunder Cloud xB, you can find him at most any Scion supported event in a 300 mile radius.
Scott has won many awards for his commitment and perseverance to making Scion into something more than just a car, so much so that he was invited to travel to Japan with the Vice President of Scion to meet with the Chief Executive Engineers for each model of Scion. You can see the ceremonial sword above his desk in our Scion showroom, signed by the former President of Toyota, Katsuaki Watanabe.
The brand holds a bright future and as all things are, Scott and the Scion crew at Reliable are excited to see what new things will come from this amazing and unique brand. After a brief trip to the New York International Auto Show he tells us Scion is nowhere close to being done! Start your journey into a New Dimension of Scion with Scott and our newly adopted Scion Guru – Jason Radney at Reliable Scion today!
