Well good luck I think you should keep it in the family and keep enjoying it

I had a 92 SC400 and a 94 LS400 both were this kind of quality. I also had a 95 Landcruiser that was also built like a bank vault. My new 2004 4runner is also built with this high quality in the same plant in Japan as the GX470 which is the highest quality rated plant Toyota/Lexus has. I've read posts on Tundra Solutions that indicate that the Toyotas that are built in the USA use high quality engineering and materials but seem to have more build problems then the ones in Japan.

they allready refurbished it for him and used it as a display car Henry. granted that's not the same as them buying it, but it still says something.

It will definately take either a unique buyer or unique price to sell a 300+k car though. Maybe now you should SC, TC, Lsd etc and mod it and make it a play car

So it's official. You did sell her. What was the official odometer reading when you saw it last? Well, at least you have an 06 to ease your pain.
