Hi folks,

I have been posting on the RX section for the last few weeks after looking for and subsequently buying a 2014 RX450h which has covered 28k, my first Lexus. I have just noticed this section, so thought I would add an introduction.

I have had Saabs for decades and the RX replaces a low mileage Alfa Romeo 159 1750 Tbi TI.

I have an interest in vehicles, as a former engineer, I have a rebuilt Landrover Defender  and a few old bikes from the 1950's to 1970's. My dad was a mechanic so I have done my own servicing to engine rebuilds.

I was influenced in my decision to buy a Lexus by their reputation for quality and reliability, so hope it was the right decision, i am impressed so far bar by the underbody corrosion protection (I have a separate thread on that).

Oh God! I want your garage! 🙂

Welcome to LOC! Your RX looks good, I am thinking to take one for a test drive one day, seems like a natural progression from a GS! 🙂

Thanks, I have had the Defender 14 years, it was rebuilt on a galvanised chassis, galvanised bulkhead, I even had the axles galvanised. It gets a bit offroad use.

The car under the tarpaulin was a 1971 Saab 96, I just sold it to help pay for the RX. It was originally a 1500 though I rebuilt the engine as a 1700 with a rally cam and Weber twin choke.
