Hello from the other side of the pond!

Recommended Posts

'Names Rob. Longtime Lexus driver, owner, and enthusiast. i live and breathe these cars. hell i even made a career out of it working as a technology specialist at my local dealership.  love em all but extremely partial to the LS400. got my first one at 17, a early build 90 and have had 20 others since then. im almost 35 and im still driving LS400s now and own 3 of them. a diamond pearl/cashmere '95 and '99, and a Imperial Jade/cashmere '00. ive had many other cars and several other Lexus, but i will always have an LS400 in my driveway no matter how old they get. the euro/uk spec versions have always interested me as you guys got some stuff over there we never got in our cars. looking forward to reading as well as contributing. i live in Orlando, FL and even here in heavens waiting room, LS400s are dwindling from the roads and its a rarity that i pass one in traffic. its cool that you guys actually have a way to track how many are still on the roads there. its a question i always wonder myself but theres no system in place like that here in the states. 

 

anyways here is my small but ever growing fleet..

what a beautiful line-up you have, well done

You're a man with much appreciation of one of the best cars ever to have left the production line

Mines on 222k miles just about and I'm loving every minute of the 19 years I've been driving a Ls400, a Mk1, then a Mk2 and 8 years ago my Mk3 on about 123k miles then

Can't imagine what other car I'd be wanting to drive permanently. I did have a car sales pitch a few years ago and drove all sorts and marques and from that time i also have a 1932 Triumph Southern Cross Sports Tourer .......... 4 seater car which is presently undergoing a little heart surgery :whistling:

reg KV2596 ............very cool in the winter here with the fabric top letting in as much wind and rain as it keeps out ..  there's probably about a dozen survivors worldwide, well, mostly old British Colonial stuff, Australia, New Zealand and maybe Canada but maybe not. Just a handful really

  • Club Hybrid Poll

  • 71 Hybrid Reliability

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
