Once in my life, I think I could've swung one of these. But it is a full on labor of love, keeping them fresh. I think I'll leave it to someone else.
David, I am sort of glad, that Lexus is doing this. Why?
Because a Lexus sedan would make really good sense for me, as a road car. But, so long as the front ends look like this, I'll recommend them to others and refuse to buy one for myself.
Most beautiful car ever made. Maybe the most beautiful thing ever crafted by human beings.
Yep. Most of them, truthfully.
It looks so fun...
"At the age of thirty seven
She realized she'd never ride
Through Paris in a sports car
With the warm wind in her hair"
Funny how threads about stuff can throw up thoughts of songs/lyrics in your head.
Just now I thought about never wanting to own a soft top and then thought of Lucy Jordan's dreams ...
looked up the song on ytube for a listen and scrolled down the side list to see what was there...
.. what the?...
Last night on TV I watched a story about Wayne Gardner GP rider... he mentioned how he watched On Any Sunday as a kid, as many of us did..and wanted to ride a bike...as many of us did...
I never went online to check any bike stuff on ytube afterwards....or have ever looked up the movie before..
and here today on the ytube side bar amongst all the music clips.. is the full movie On Any Sunday...
that is so weird..
hell, I might just watch it now for old times sake....
subaru impreza wrx sti 22b
The last of the V8 Interceptors
1963 Ranchero. Maybe a weird desire, but I've wanted one for many years now.
Problem is I'm downsizing getting ready for retirement in a few years. Looking like it may never materialize.
I drove up next to a pristine late '60s Coupe DeVille a couple of weeks ago at an intersection. It was beautiful.
'59 300SL ragtop (not the gull-wing)
Dad always had a roadster - his little vice, instead of a Dumble.
His was bone white w/ red leather interior.
For many years, his Will said I could Buy it from his estate - by the time he had an estate, he no longer owned the car.
Yes, I drove this as a teenager.
Oh! you guitar playing dog, you!
I had one of those... in yellow
And this too. Actually, I learned to drive in THIS
Lots of nice cars above and some near the top of my list too, but the Ferrari 250 LM would be my first pick:
BTW @Flaneur, I assisted in the full off body restoration of a 1952 Jag XK120. I know just about every part on that car more than any other car I've ever worked on except building my hot rod. The owner had the bucks to fly over to U.K to find some NOS tires (this was back in the early '70s). That engine design was in production a huge number of years.
my ex had a Le Car to work on the clutch the engine and the the transmission had to come out.
my girl friend had L Car to work on the clutch the engine and transmission had to come out, a real piece of Euro-pooh,

I had one when I was student - she was white, a Renault 5 TL, car plate 9722JA69. 45CV, 1100cm3, 760kg. Literally INDESTRUCTIBLE except by... RUST !
This one below - Monteverdi 375L - in manual 5-speed gearbox - with the 7.2L Chrysler motor :
Yes : I already have one, but not of the suitable color and... Scale !
But it's me, OK ?
Lexus are sensible except that Toyota exist and are basically the same thing. My parents had them all through the 90s and 2000s, I've had no less than 3 hand me down Lexii over the years, SUV Sedan and even a convertible and all were reliable, comfortable, well made, and basically the car equivalent of wearing a wet pair of socks... Just profoundly uninspiring cars.
I've driven a Jaguar the last 8 years and in a lot of ways its just as disappointing in that its is expensive to maintain and has worn poorly, but going from ANY lexus to the Jag was like in the wizard of oz when it switches from black and white to color.
