Default She turns 10. Happy 10th to #85

So its been 10 years since Neiman Marcus released my car in their annual Christmas catalog and in 10 years my car has transformed in a number of ways. 10 years and about 32,xxx miles she should have plenty of life left in her. Who has the oldest sc430?

Hi tuterz,

Not really; mine with a build date of 23 Jan 02 has 40K on her.

There are a few folks on here with really, really low mileage.

Default Happy Birthday!

I think there are some July and August 2001 birthdates I've seen on here...but certainly you must have the oldest NM on here...there are only a couple on CL period.

Still in my top three SC's of all time...VietPrince's is my # 1 all time fav SC on CL! Gorgeous car, well taken care of and tastefully updated/modded. Way to go! Looks better than new!

so....here's a toast to the SILVER BELLE!

Some pics and info for others who don't know about her....

more Neiman Marcus....my fav of all time...an old shot with different wheels I believe...love these wheels! love the kit...

Press release info:

http://www.lexus.com/about/news/arti...0011003_1.html

Next up after VietPrince's is # 11 that was for sale once at a dealer. Nice twisties in chrome. Any wheels look great on this car! LOL

Also # 36 former member on here...another beauty. Updated 2006+ five star wheels on her, but she's still the rare Thundercloud Metallic! Still Pimento inside!!!

Some late appreciation for the Neiman Marcus:

Thunderdcloud was never made in another SC
The Blue door kick plates were never made again in another SC
The chrome dinner plates never came standard on any other SC
Red special floor mats and the special car cover...all unique to the NM
Special Garnet Birdseye Maple I don't believe appears on any other SC either...very unique color!

Of course the red cargo pull handle, engine cover were repeated again on the 05 and 07 Pebble Beach Cars

Gotta love the blue LED kick plates...another lighter shot of them below too.

Can you tell I love the NM? he he
