Does this car have a longer wheelbase than a regular LS430?

Nope, 430s came in one wheelbase only. The current LS460 does offer regular and extended (L) versions.

Finally got some unplowed snow over the weekend. Came back from my friend's place at around 2:30AM when there was next to no traffic and of course...no snow plows so I had to have a little bit of fun. Though VSC still cuts into the sliding a lot, it was still entertaining none the less. This is the aftermath.

So, that's what my car would have looked like this winter? I'm glad I bought the Subaru for winter use.

Haha I often look for dirt cheap cars to use as a beater, but I only have 1 parking spot

It's supposed to be OK on Monday. Maybe it'll be a LS day.

That's something I'll never see where I live. We have a 2-3month long snow season,in one small part of the state which is 8hrs drive away.

I hope you hosed it off...

Haha I was thinking someone would tell me that sooner or later. I was supposed to do homework for my virology class, but procrastination got the best of me and I washed the LS instead (don't worry the homework got done eventually too). Here is what it looks like now....

Snapped some pics yesterday at sunset with a digital camera (instead of my usually mediocre iphone cam). Though some on here who know about photography will criticize, I thought they came out pretty well.

Looking good, CarGuy. I took mine through the normal carwash yesterday at the Shell station because I got tired of the ugliness left by the touchless carwash. At least it looks Flint Mica again, rather than Briarwood Pearl.
