Default so, how many LS400s do you have/had/and how long have you been driving them?

we all have our reasons for driving LS400s. they are old enough now to where you kinda really gotta want one and seek one out as they are getting hard to find. how many have you had? how many are in your driveway now? how long have you been driving them? are they your soul means of transportation or are they a secondary car of yours, and you have a modern fallback car? plan on having one forever or just till you can get a newer LS?

preferred means of transport?

how many owned?

how many now and what years?

Hey, can I take my vote back? I forgot one. I've had 4
how long?
First one was back in 2010 or there abouts, and then three more after that.

preferred means of transport?
Yes, for commuting to work and back.

how many owned?
4

how many now and what years?
1st 1993 2 years, the cream puff that started it all. 90 K miles and purchased from grandmother that got too old to drive.
2nd 1995 2 years
3rd 1999 for about a year and then gave it to dad and he still drives it now.
4th 1998 had to get back to the Diamond Pearl White, but this one had and has the most miles on it: 227k at the moment.


main transport?
Yes, but I have a few to choose from depending on the mood and weather.

planning to upgrade?
Looking for that Crème de le Crème LS 430 that I can't live without... always looking for another one.

since 2011 (grandparents bought it new in 1999)

yes, but only when conditions are extemely ideal (no snow, no traffic, no short trips, no frequent stopping)

1 but some day id like to have all 3 iterations of the 400 at once

1, 1999

depends, for commuting and other errands I pretty much exclusively used the crown vic since I didn't care what happened to it or how long it would be parked outside in direct sunlight, the LS is kind of being wasted by just going down the block, or sitting in traffic, or being driven through the city where the 1UZ can't stretch its legs... something it loves to do and does fabulously

will be keeping this forever, mainly as the gets driven once or twice a week type car since there is no update
