Told my parents that I had gotten a new car. They were happy that I purchased something non-RWD for a change. They are both avid Toyota fans and own 2 Camry's and a Solara between them. My mom was familiar with the car because I showed her the dealership brochure that I brought home when I was comparing vehicles.

My dad was very confused apparently by the offshoot Scion division of Toyota, so my mom wound up just simplifying to "For all practical purposes - it is a Toyota - replacement for the Celica".

So the day I brought it out to show them and I hear my dad on the phone with his buddy saying - "Oh, I gotta go check this thing out... yeah, it's new - it's a TOYOTA CYLON...".

Uh, a little too much Battlestar Galactica maybe?

When the 12 Colonies of Man are all but wiped out by a cybernetic race called the Cylons, Commander Adama and the Battlestar Galactica lead a ragtag human fleet of survivors in search of a mythical planet called Earth! Lorne Greene, Richard Hatch and Dirk Benedict star in the classic TV space opera — one of the most lavish and special effects-intensive series ever telecast!

Yeah. I've gotten "Sky-on" and "Skee-on" a couple of times. And then the people who have heard of Scion but not seen my car usually automatically think of the xB, because those commercials are played a lot more. I think the worst pronunciation I've gotten was probably "Camry".

If people have problems saying Scion asked them how they say Scissors, same concept. I've heard it all, specially the hybrid part. Just to let you all know, that the tC is not the replacement for the Celica, it just didn't seem right to put a car with less power less features, and not as much room in the show room at 24K when you can get the same thing out of a tC 6k less. The Celica has just been thrown into the burner to be melted down and re-shaped, I'd put money on we see a new Celica in the near future.

When I first got my car, one of my friends (a girl) was like. Hey you got one of those cute Scones. And I was like, "say what?" Scones are a pastry my dear. This is a Scion. Like Zion, but with a SC.

oh well...

"scones"


you should have bought her a scone to emphasize the difference between the two... then throw the scone at her for good measure, but thats just me (i probably wouldnt throw the scone at her if shes got some hot friends to introduce)
