Decided to start a build thread since i have documented enough in my phone. i told myself i wasnt going to modify my new daily driver because my Rx7s are already taking up all my money and time. But i couldn't resist so here she goes.
I began searching for my own Ls400 since i been using my buddies Ls400 as a daily because i am in the middle of bodywork redoing my Rx7s exterior. So for 3 months i began searching ads and craigslist looking for the right LS to pick up. I knew i wanted the following.
1- 1st generation
2- dark exterior color any
3- low mileage
4-reasonable body damage and interior
On December 26th i stumbled upon a ad on craiglsist for a 92 Ls just smogged,low miles ,20 mins away $1300...........yeah i was on my way.
Upon arrival i noticed a few things off the back. Windshield was cracked,bumper was scratched, interior was crap, window didnt go down. I popped the hood and boom dead cold motor so i check everything out no leaks all fluids topped up. I crank her over and she fires up accelarate warms up and idles perfectly 750rpm. 5 mins test drive i was sold that i wanted it but needed it cheaper.
I drove a hard bargain on this lawyer whos son been using the car for college. My only ammunition was the winshield i knew it was $150 at my friends glass repair shop but he though it was $700 for it. So I gave him my solid and firm offer of $900. He looked at me and said deal.
1992 Ls400 169,000 miles 1 owner. Registration up to date and passes California smog. 1 hr later I was at my friends glass shop getting a new winshield put in and then the build begins.
