One thing I love about fellow car enthusiasts, such as you lovely people, is that they enjoy automobiles so much that they’ll modify any of them to make them more unique. It doesn’t matter what kind of vehicle it is, either. Customizers will tweak sports cars, crossovers, trucks, and SUVs – even big-bodied sedans, too.
Real Car Reviews really wants you to know that this is not Matt Farah’s Million Mile Lexus LS400, but it is now officially a classic.
Back in 1990, Lexus only sold the ES250, which was based on the then-current Toyota Camry, and the LS400, its rival to the big four-doors from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Cadillac. Had that latter car been a dud, I probably wouldn’t be writing this on this site right now.
Matt Farah from the Smoking Tire is determined to take his LS 400 to over a million miles, and he’s enlisted help from around the country to make it happen. And while pitching in might be fun, it won’t always be easy.
When I first saw the Craigslist post for the 1996 LS 400 with nearly 900,000 miles on the clock, I was hoping it would go to a good home—and it did. Matt Farah from the Smoking Tire saw the post, flew to Florida and bought it.
