Default new to Colorado!

Hey, yall names Katie. I just moved from Florida to Vail, CO. Bringing my car up with me next week...
This is her prior to be prepped for winter




Doubt there are many hangs outs like it was in Florida, but always nice to know some locals.

Welcome to Colorado from another Colorado Club Lexus Member! Sweet IS 300! The suspension and exterior mods look great! Is it a 5-sp manual or an auto? Have you done any mods to the 2JZ? I have 2 2JZs (SC and GS, no VVTi) love them both. Hope you get settled in before real winter begins! Hopefully as the community grows we will have more luck with the get-togethers...

All the Best!, - Brent

Thank you!
It is an automatic, wished for 5spd but for the price I got this car I can't complain. I sure hope so! I am still afraid of the RWD in the snow.

Hey Snazzy,
Well, as a consolation prize, at least you have 5 gears to choose!, I'm stuck with the 4-sp Auto in the earlier cars. Just arranged to get a 5-Speed manual conversion going for my SC 300, so I should be happier by spring! Bought all mine used, so transmission choice wasn't the deciding factor... Driven in Colorado winters 25+ years, always rear-drive only. Sideways is fun, stuck is not. I always mount up a set of dedicated snows for the daily (Blizzaks on my SC 400 currently) Just have to be a little patient at launch, then play your best rally driver.

Bestest!, - Brent.

Congrats on the move! I have yet to visit Vail, although I hear it's nice! I just moved from an AWD to a RWD and I'm sure that snow tires will prove to be plenty for you up here.
