Default Quarter of a million mile daily driver, runs like a Rolex

I've been a long time lurker and read a thread wondering about sport seats. I figured I had something to contribute by showing pics of my Corbeau's. They're great you can really take corners. They are worth it for just the weight reduction So I became a member & glad I did, because I also have a story how great these cars are.Quarter of a million mile daily driver, runs like a Rolex-pict0625.jpg

I've had the car a long time. I usually put 100 miles a day on it. (Driving it is the best part of my day). It's stock all I've done is timing belts & a new suspension. The paint is from a custom shop in LA., they do good paint in LA. its more purple than the pics show
I get comps, offers all the time, at least smiles. To me it's PRICELESS. I don't think I would sell for 100,000. What would I get? a gray Beemer that looks like everyother gray Beemer; Barbary

I'd sell mine for $100k in a second, and I only have 75k on it, lol.

Is that a hardtop car?

P.S. that paint is absolutely gorgeous and fits the body of the sc soooo well. I usually say it's impossible to beat the lexus paint colors, but that does. It's great to see someone taking care of their car and adding a great personal touch to it.

TanMan; thanks for the comp, I've seen this color on other cars. It doesn't work. On an SC it's perfect especially w Enkei luxury's but where I drive the ride is hard enough w them without lowering. You should see all the jacked-up SC's around here. So I kind of like where I'm at, but that's just me.
I've got K+N filter w flowmaster exhaust What a sweet sound. Good Luck! Barbary

There is too many lifted SCs in the Bay Area, I'll be on the look out for you.
