Default It is so good to be back

It's been five years since I gave up my ES for a family Sienna minivan. Now that my 2 kids (5 & 3) are a little older, I couldn't wait to get out of the minivan stage of my life (my wife still thinks it's a bit early ). I am now a proud owner of a 2007 GS350. So looking forward to see great stuffs from this club. Club Lexus rocks!!!

What's wrong with an ES for carting around 1 or 2 kids anyway?

If his ES was the second generation 97-01, I could see why it would become a hassle. My 01 ES300's back seat legroom and headroom is VERY tight.

Thank you all for making me feel so welcome. it was a 92 ES and the back seats were a little cramp, but the big problem was the limited space in the trunk for stroller and baby stuffs...

I have to educate myself more in this regards, and CL is obviously a place for my research. I am still trying to absorb things like wheel off-set or polyurethane versus hand-laid fiber galss etc...don't laugh But I won't be doing anything close to some of the awesome stuffs that I am seeing with 3 gen GS here at CL. If I do, I'm gonna have to sell my kids...

umm, you sure the gs350 is better? i don't know the space in the es300. gs is rwd so there is a hump in the center rear seat floor. and the 3gs trunk isn't that big

but still it's a nice car and good upgrade!

What I meant to say was, back then I needed space for a big stroller and stuff. Now that my kids are a little bit older I no longer need to bring the stroller and baby stuffs. They can run and eat what I eat. I do miss the van whenever I go to the home center such as Home Depot now and then. However, once I get into my GS, all that missing is gone.
