Excellent! Bet you can't wait for summer! It certainly looks like you've had a lovely day, I took the dog out and had to wear gloves! And that's a beautiful looking SC you've got there.

Hi Phil

Thanks, I have had it 7 months and I smile every time I get behind the wheel 😃 

Yes I love my car especially with the top down and I'm lucky my son feels the same.

Yes seems unusual for us to have better weather up North but I'm sure you will get your turn

There's a guy around here who I occasionally see in his SC430, it's that sort of unusual very dark burgundy, it's a wonderful looking car. Having had three LS430's I know the SC has one of the finest engines ever built!

Hi Phil

I know the colour you are talking about but I have only seen one in the flesh!

Having driven several LS400 in the past I was always impressed by the engine and the quality,20211001_132733.thumb.jpg.98c654653845ac3227f7be50c56dbc9b.jpg so when I finally got the opportunity to buy a convertible the SC430 was always going to be the top of my list!

Brilliant weather here in the Pennines, I've been enjoying several local runs with the top down. I don't think it gets any better!20220318_144213.thumb.jpg.37ef8e94cbf3aafe51dc8598e76896d2.jpg

Come on guys, get those tops down and share the pics!

I can't believe that none of you guys have enjoyed the glorious weather today and got some photographic proof!

Just got back with Lexiguy Junior after having a run over the Pennines then round and back. We both loved our time out.

Looks great and I'm quite jealous. That's just what the SC430 was made for, not slumbering in the garage....which is where mine is. 🙁 

Good to see standards being maintained too with the chauffeur wearing a smart cap.

Hi Neil

Yes, she is no garage queen and was bought to be enjoyed!

He loves it and has even asked me to leave it to him in my will!!! (I'm hoping it will be very old by then...lol)

Hi Ant

Looking back at my depleted pic archive, there aren't many with the roof down or with scenery to match yours but here it is in the far North, South and West with at least a hint of sun.

Adsog.....translates to 'how to ruin an SC430' or 'a darker shade of grey.' I think you saw the vid. 

The full build thread is lost in the ether for now of course but there is a mini version on here. 🙂

I had the silly (expensive) idea that the SC430 should have more of the qualities and character of the earlier world-beating grey import Soarer (I had 2 of those) and so set about giving it a darker personality.

Fantastic sunny morning in the Pennines! 

Lexiguy Junior has requested a top down run out today, just contemplating the Peak District, Pennines or The Dale's?

Got Lexiguy Junior to help me with washing and vacuuming the car before we went out for a run.

 

We then went over the Pennines on the Woodhead Pass, then to Glossop, Tameside, Barnsley and Holmfirth.

Unable to upload a photo I took of washing the car and I cant hnderstand why but I will send them when it allows me!!!

It says:

"Sorry, an unknown server error occurred when uploading this file. Error code 200." What ever that means 🤔20220327_151644.thumb.jpg.8a5dc8a1de5530e918da3890e2ada865.jpg20220327_151701.thumb.jpg.3af6e3c8e3b6b743a32a77322c55a38c.jpg20220327_151644.thumb.jpg.8a5dc8a1de5530e918da3890e2ada865.jpg

I can't compete with the Pennies or the Derbyshire Dales but here's a top down snap in sunny West Sussex.

We have walked up to the pub just up the road and the weather is glorious, definitely top down weather!

20220421_174503.thumb.jpg.ae35e064e9f4c41c03e21b0ef228c9bc.jpg

Planned and booked a road trip for a few days up to Beamish. Lexyiguy Junior is upset as this glamping stay is for grownups only!

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
