I just signed up for Club Lexus, and I want to tell you that I deliberately am driving the long way home, just to DRIVE this car! I have never felt like this about any car before.

1999 GS 400, gold metallic, bought from an individual this week, it only has 17,000 miles. I can't imagine why anyone would have wanted to sell this Lexus...except maybe to buy the SC430.

Anyway, I just wanted to say Hi to all of you.

My question: Is there anyplace I can get a hold of an original sales brochure for my car?

JadeGS400, welcome!!!! As Robert Heinlein once said, "Shared joy increases.....". Considering how we feel about our cars, I would bet that some of the members with 99s purchased/leased new may have more than one of the original brochures. Anyone??

I have a dendency of turning off the traction control a lot. I am not even going to start talking about the twisted roads and turns.

Default Jade Responds

Thank you all. Your responses have made me feel most welcome.

Not knowing how to respond individually, I will answer publicly. This is my first Lexus. My most recent drive was a Jaguar XJ. I liked that car, it was pretty, with classic lines, and while cruising the straight highway was good, I think those of you who mentioned the curves were absolutely right, the Lexus is so responsive, I just think a move, and it happens. GROK?

Is there a correlation between Lexus drivers and Heinlein readers?

Hey I grew up on Heinlein SF books. I was way too young like 11 sitting in the library reading his books. Of course it help that there was this pretty girl sitting across from me.....

Michael???Looking at girls when you were 11????? I may have been in the same library......except my first scifi was Harry Harrison......

JadeGS, correlation is possible. I certainly enjoy engaging warp drive........as the scenery begins to blur, I'd swear it was being blueshifted.........guess that tends to happen in the old "Glory Road" universe.

Thumbs up A wise choice (naturally)

Jade – come in and make yourself at home!

You’ve already exhibited the traits of (most of) the CL members.

Among them: IQ over 140 or so, exquisite taste, an appreciation for the finer (nay, finest) things in life, and the inner peace that a general understanding of the cosmos brings. Heinlein fits in there too. Did I forget anything? Maybe a lead foot?

Though we vary greatly in age (and the kind of rims we like) we damn near worship these cars (I leave offerings and cookies in the garage for mine). HAIL LEXUS (bow head).

Mike,

We're talking literature here. Not brew.

Robert Heinlein is one of my favorite authors... and was influential in helping me to develop my view of the spiritual universe. My inability to lie for hours on the bottom of a swimming pool probably helped get me into SCUBA.

So, 1SICKLEX, what's your problem? Are you A Stranger in a Strange Land? Don't you GROK it?

Or do I have to tell you to shine up that beer bottle, turn it sideways and ...

1SICKLEX,

Sorry. I thought you knew who he was and were playing.

I recommend starting with "Stranger in a Strange Land". Be interested to hear from you after you've read it.

I enjoyed all the characters surrounding Jubal Harshaw; "Glory Road" is still a good Heinlein read, and a mite shorter too.

Haven't seen "Starship Troopers" so I don't know how faithful it was/is to the book. Changing authors, all you IT guys owe the term "cyberspace" to another of my favorites, William Gibson. Highly recommended also. Not quite as far off track as you might think: Gibson does mention a Lexus in one of his recent books, and his earlier (chronologically)/later (in his fictional universe) stuff tends to lean heavily into Japan.

Anyway, once again, welcome JadeGS; we're all glad you're here.
