Busted! Hahaha. Closeted Geo surveyor.

Who knew that drive would be where I get to clear my headspace for a few hours. The bonus is even with liberal WOT and heavy use of brakes, the engine still gets around 7L/100km.

My usual driving around town is around that while besting to 6.3L/100. Pure highway road trip mode is even thriftier.

Note to any Duffey storm troopers, there are more dips in the road going back home southbound than north. Due to the edge of the road naturally eroding and moving, that side of the road gets the damage first. Be ready for lots of full compression suspension use.

Fitted some 15s in the back. It definitely needs a bit of massaging to make them fit.

Evening gents, been a while!

Maserati's gone, replaced it with this old man's sled for the summer. Im glad it carries over a lot of the things i like about the old mazzy. NA v8, increible exhaust note and sexy wide fenders.
Also never had a car delievered with only 6kms on it.. by the time i remembered to take a shot, it was already 11kms. Seems incredibly low, never had a new car with only 6km on it.

Really? I would say the Maserati sounds a lot better than the LC. Lexus firing order sounds more Mustang than Ferrari

How was your Maserati ownership? Quattroporte prices seems to have bottomed out. still want to try one

Maz does sound better. One of the greatest sounding cars ever made imo. But this isn’t too bad, the loud ass crack during downshift sounds like a rifle shot.

Still miss my maz. Ownership was great but not great. I mean I had her since new and every year it was 1.5-4k of standard maintenance. Biggest non standard maintenance cost me 26k for engine mounts, valve covers, coolant hoses, power steering, and some misc other crap that I don’t recall. This is all done at Vancouver Ferrari maserati so I’m sure if you go third party it’ll be cheaper.

Congrats! And what a coincidence, Facebook was just asking me this evening if I bought the car since I looked at the listing at one point

Thanks. Most of you old guys here know that I love my old departed SC430. So this LC is very much up my alley of GTs.

Gotta say, they nailed it with the LC coupe / roadster - the car is essentially a Japanese Aston Martin.

But of course its a Lexus - well built, dependable and won't tank in value like an Aston.

I actually cross shopped the LC with the new Vantage. Ultimately didnt buy it because its 1) 100k more than the LC, 2) wouldnt be able to deliever before sept and thus 37% tax in total!! 3) cheap interior with a tacked on small 6 inch display and chintsy plastic buttons everywhere

Aston looks better though... especially from the rear. But looking at the options list, it was riduculious how they nickle and dime you for everything.

You are not trollface. Trust me.

I first joined revscene back in high school with this epic ride (parents couldnt afford a corolla CE, too pricey). Notice the wind up windows, and the blood stain on the front seat (you made me bleed my own blood!). This was my family's only car and i thought it was the coolest thing. I got my DL when i was 16 and promptly tried racing with this sentra (epic fail). Plus the color!!! look at the friggin color man.





You'll make it. Just have faith, look for opportunities and don't hesitate when they present themselves. If my dumb ass with a history/philosophy degree can make it, anyone can. Plus judging from most of the rides on here, I must say the majority of the dudes have done VERY VERY well for themselves in one of the most expensive places to live in the world.
