I've seen water pumps typically leak on domestic and asian cars at about the 50-60k mark. That's pretty much normal. One of the reasons is that peeps don't keep their coolant systems flushed. It's...

IMHO the Equus is an amalgamation of S-Class, 7 series and LS (mainly the german cues) into one. You can see all the copycat things in there. Sure it's the epitome of flattery, but it's still not any...

That Cat Back Exhaust sounds almost musical in a way and definitely the best of the three examples, IMO. Very nice, and great job on the car as a whole.

"Eggy" (sulfur) smell oftentimes means you have a catalytic convertor going out on you. When they start plugging up, your car's exhaust will smell like that. The next stage is a loss of performance...

IMHO mudguards are essential. They aren't exactly huge, they are contoured/moulded to go with the bodystyle, and when colormatched they blend in pretty well. YMMV.

IMHO the LS460, especially the 4th gen, is simply a great, no- a FANTASTIC sedan. I don't consider the LS series an "old folks car" whatsoever. Not like prior Buicks or Cadillacs, anyway. YMMV.
