Yes, the buyer was from Nebraska, used to have a 98 LS and currently has an 04 LS. My friend said that "my" 2000's maintenance documentation was particularly important to the buyer.

Here is a photo I posted five years ago: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/ls400/465096-broken-odometer.html#post5012939

The 90-92 LS400 mechanical odometer has a high failure rate. Mine failed at about 125K miles. At least they are inexpensive to replace.
