Better you than many other possible new owners. For example:

It's like a child where one parent is good looking and the other one is fugly. Imports should never be donks and Chevy's should never go cambered out, VIP style... To each their own I guess. I can respect someone who has a different taste and style from me as long as they put in quality work and respect the car. I don't like donks or the cambered out look but I've seen really good builds in both styles that I can applaud the effort it took. I still think that the more diverse the Lexus fan base is, the better it is for our cars' values.

McCrimmon , I am an old guy and had to google that term. Now I know what a donk is.

i got my 99 LS 400 from my grandparents nearly 3 years ago. i'll be 20 soon, the car just passed 100000 miles, drives great, needs suspension work though, and my dream would be to give it to my kids some day, if it'll last that long

i'm amazed at how well the early toyota tacomas have held their value. when i was shopping for one, i was shocked to see older models in the same price range as the newer so i opted for the newer ones (where the generation i wanted stopped at 2004). of course their use differs from an LS400 but i would like to see that kind of value retained over the upcoming years. what would it take? a solid engine, reliable chassis, cheap maintenance, and a good drive? the LS has all that!

today LS400s are so affordable you see more and more new member popping up here. it's great to see!

I was just talking about that with a colleague today, describing the '95 LS I just got a few weeks ago. Seems to me though, the problem may be that even a relatively minor accident will total them out since repairs and parts are so expensive. Correct me if I'm wrong. One minute you have a sweet super clean machine and the next you get a 3-4k check from insurance.

Fine examples will continue to be cared for by fans. But fewer will become available as their original owners, with their fine garages and car care habits, pass away.
Exactly. Now with these cars at the quarter century mark I think were gunna see a huge wave of super nice ones surface as the last of the original owners start to die off. (Yes it's easy to forget these cars are actually old enough now that some of there original owners that were middle aged or slightly older when they bought them are going senile or dying off)
