Hello All! I have recently posted my car for sale up on craigslist in the SF Bay Area. I am based in San Jose so that's just where it went up so I figured I would mention it here to see if anyone else in the surrounding areas would be interested. I know that judging by my post count many may be deterred from trusting in me, but I can assure you that I am a trustworthy guy, I just don't post all the time. I've spent most of my time here lurking and studying other posts to gather information on the SC as a whole. It is here that I was taught ways to debug certain issues in my car, from replacing my thermostat to relocating my wiring harness.
It is really a sad thing for me to be selling my car after the amount of time and dedication I have put into learning about the car and trying to bring out the true potential of this elegant beast, but alas, I can no longer support my Lexus addiction.
I have stated on the ad that I am looking for 5000$ OBO and so clearly I am open to taking offers so if by chance you are interested, feel free to use my contact info in the ad or send me a PM here. The car is not in the best condition but it still definitely gets props from those around me and from random passerbys. The reason I am posting an ad here is also because I am hoping to pass this car onto someone who has the motivation to continue taking care of this car and as we have a good supply of members with experience in this car, maybe we can all come to an agreement as to what the value of the car is here taking into account the condition of the car with regard to the sentimental value.

As the car is still mine, I will still be treating it with the same amount of love I have given it, so I am still working on saving up the money as well as finding the time to replace the Rear control arm bushings and hopefully a realignment. I will update the posts If I do manage to get around to it
I May even get to pulling the dents and doing the paint
All of which will increase the value, but the sooner I sell it the better
