Just got this thing and I like it, even being 250hp V8 and RWD my old little geo spanks the living crap out of it. But its really nice having a bunch of features that Ive never had before (never had a car newer than a 1992)
I picked it up cheap with alot of small issues.
Already replaced all the front control arm bushings with polys
next is to do the steering rack bushings and sway bar with polys
Also replaced the climate control lcd and gas gauge needles (they have 10 lights inside the small needles to go out I think like 15-20 in the large needles)
but its a work in progress, just thought Id share.
oh its a 1992 Lexus SC400

Cool car. I wouldn't knock the V8 in that thing...they're capable of pretty serious power.

Even if you could get it out, the roads would send you to the chiro before you could confirm the repair to the car. I went into T town yesturday and had to break out the heating pad for my back, lol. It'll look good on the road once you get it there.

At least I'm not the only one that sees this! I live at the borders of KS, MO, & OK. Anyone wanna guess which state line that I've been dreading to cross every day for the last week? Oh & it's a VERY definite state line crossing too, no matter which state that I'm coming from. Going from 65 down to 10 mph just so I don't trash anything on my beater truck is miserable. Damn Okies need to learn how to clean more than just the toll roads. Rolling Eyes


BTW, how many cars does that make now Dan? I'll take a couple of Chevelles off of your hands to alleviate some of the pressure. LOL!
