Default Picked up another one

So I picked up another SC today... '95 SC300 111k miles, two owner, garage kept, clean, all maintenance done. Picked it up pretty cheap since it has a couple minor issues that the previous owner thought were pretty big. The tilt steering is stuck up (I can hear the motor running, going to go ahead with the tilt steering repair), The RPM and Speedo gauges don't move due to a semi-botched lighting repair (lights look great, but someone didn't know what they were doing and touched the needles), power mirrors don't work, trunk struts are shot, and the power antenna doesn't go up or down. I'm pretty happy with the car. All of the stuff is minor IMO and it could turn out to be a pretty decent car. It came with the ORIGINAL Lexus car cover, never seen one before. It could use some new speakers and a new set of wheels. I put a set of chrome IS300 wheels on the sc400 and it looks awesome. I must say driving the 300 against the 400 is night and day. I honestly prefer the smoothness of the 400, but the 300 seems to have some decent get up and go. The 400 is the highway cruiser, so I guess the 300 is a good around the town toy. I'll get some pictures up tomorrow. I've got it outside underneath the car cover.

Here is the car under the cover. We went away this past weekend and came back today. Washed it up before we left and immediately put it under the cover since we've been getting so much rain here in Tampa. I'll probably have the cover off it today or tomorrow and I'll snap a couple more pics. Thanks

Not much if any. I may have the seats refinished. Not sure yet.
