Those tops keep the cars cooler ... lots of the "hot" states do that especially Florida (as someone had mentioned).

Looks like a "Pimp my Ride" car.

Then I saw the roof.... I can honestly say I've never seen this done to a LS430, let alone any other Lexus. I've seen it done on new style Maximas, Camrys, and of course Cadillacs and Lincolns... but damn.

Picture is attached. All I can say is "WHY?!?!?!?!"
I SAW THIS TOO, I WAS LIKE WTF!!!! my gf was like what??!! what??!! i showed it to her, and she was like i dont like the color lol.

I think it would be even better if you were able to say that to the owner of the car if you ran into them. "WTF were you thinking? Are you on crack???"

We could probably have fun with this..... other things you might say to the owner:

"I didn't know Lexus offered a pimp package on the LS430"

"Did you actually pay extra to make your car look like a turd?"

guys the sad part is that here in South Florida we see these nasty cars ALL the time. JM Lexus almost always had one like this in ther showroom. Luckily since the LS460 came out they don't have any desire to destroy those....for now.

I saw an early 90's LS like this in Pittsburgh a couple of weeks ago, it was white with a white top, had a really bad pinstriping job on it and gold badging including one that said "Florida Edition". It was pretty rough.

i wonder how hard they are to take off. From what i've noticed is that they bring quite a bit LESS money on ebay? Unbolt it maybe?

Ugh sooo ugly. Think of the drag it produces. All that engineers work.. wasted to look like crap.
