Nice to see another Colorado member join!

Default Hey Hey!

Hello to all the other lexus SC owners! We've had ours for about 4 years now and bought it from a listing on this site! Decided to join up after using it for a while to get info on the how-to's of owning the car. We've done a couple road trips here and there, lighthouse tour, and have even let somebody use it in a wedding! Still rides great every time. With the weather in the DC area taking a nice warm turn, we're looking for much more enjoyment as we can finally take her top off Looking forward to mixing with the community here.

Best,
-Nicholas

Hi everyone I finally got an SC300. Have been researching for months, and scouring the internet and locally trying to find a manual SC300. I finally found one and had to make quite the drive but she's mine now. Car had 115k on it, everything is great except for minor things. It has the leaking power steering thing but its not too bad yet, Im gonna go ahead and swap out the pump and alternator and just keep the old ones to rebuild. The previous owner was religous was maintenance and I have all the records and timely maintenance was performed. The previous owner got the entire interior redone with better quality leather, but the same color as original. Its been raining non stop here will post more pics as I go through the car detailing what is wrong, and how I'm fixing it. Look forward to bringing her back up to speed, and then Ill figure out if I want to make power or not, for now though definitely a nice car and a daily driver. I'm freaking stoked to be the owner of a 2j powered lexus SC300!

Was looking for a cheap SC to build and found it fairly close to my home. 93 auto w 207K miles. I've been around the forums for a while but never ended up getting a SC. Finally had to get a truck so had to have a toy to play with.

Car will get a complete refresh. Interior, Stereo, Exterior and GTE. Already started gutting it :-)

Default Good day!

Good day all!
My name is Stanley, I'm from southern Alberta Canada. I purchased a 1993 Sc400 a few months back and I've basically had it sitting dormant during skiing season.
Start with the good: Absolute beast of a car. ****ing Fantastic engine. 280 xxx kilometers.
Transmission is in mint shape.
Mufflers cut right behind the cat. so as you can imagine its quite loud.
18' Blitz rims.

the bad:
Needs new valve cover set.
New timing belt and water pump.
New power steering.
New drivers side door (seems to be a common problem)
New sunroof..(it just exploded one day.. moderate temperature, 60MP/h. just shattered one day.

My goal: This is my second car. thank god for that because after my first i appreciate it all the more. That being said i want this car till the day I die. I'll probably do some upgrading next year, probably a widebody kit, wing, wheel spacers, and of course the engine upgrade.

Cant wait to learn from the gurus!
Cheers.
Stanley

Default 1993 SC400 New guy

Hello all, found a clean SC400 and just couln't say no. Can't believe how nice these things ride. The paint was pretty swirled but a few hours on the buffer cleaned it up nicely. Had a few issues, thermostat was stuck open, no heat and trunck struts are bad. Car was always garaged and has just over 100K on it. Would love to swap out the wheels but for now just planning on driving it.

Default 1992 Lexus SC400











Hi guys,

My name is Ben, I bought a 1992 Lexus SC400 that has 300,947 kms. (187,000 miles) and everything in the vehicle is stock. I live in Edmonton, AB Canada. I'm a student in College and new to automotive repair and upgrades.

Minor repairs to be done are :
Interior:
dash lighting, driver seat slide motor, new seat covers, interior reupholster, tablet deck.
Exterior:
body work and paint, new headlights, new front bodykit, wheels and tires

My budget to spend is $8,000 and I want to try and do some of the repairs and upgrades myself. I want a clean looking SC400 and try and use OEM products.



Regards

Ben

New to CL, but have owned my 1992 Lexus SC400 for 4 years ! Lowering springs, wheels, and a sub that will give you a back massage while driving but otherwise stock (for now!) She was problem free until recently, and I have be chipping away at things. Joined CL to get some thoughts/ideas from fellow Lexus people as I run into problems!
