    Well, the guy who had the 40th anniversary LC stopped answering e-mails. Guess he's not interested in selling it. The hunt continues. Here's a LEX with similar mileage, what do you all think of this one?

    Also, here's a 100 in my price range, what do ya's think?

    Thanks

    The Lexus has Lockers! Right now it is priced OK. If it were me, I'd probably go 14,500 or so and not much more. Why are all the Ebay Cruisers in Texas ???

    The lexus has a 'buy it now price' of $13,900.

    It's not going to last.

    I know jack squat about the 100's (in relation to the 80's) but that must have been a good price on it, it sold. However, it had no locker, front or rear, so no big loss. SO you all like the Lex? I kinda dig it. I hate the cheezy ass fog lights, those are definitely wal-mart specials (or at least they look it) and would have to come off immediately. What about hte chromed rims? They look to be lexus rims, but were they actual factory rims or did someone have them chromed?

    Thanks.

    They look to me like factory rims that have been chromed.

    Kyle, it is time to buy now! Pretty soon everybody will have one except you! :D. Just kidding. I have seen factory chrome wheels on both LX and LC. I am not sure what the ratio of LC or LX to population here in Texas, but it seems there's a lot of suvs and trucks here. :-\

    I know :flipoff2: I wish I lived closer. Kinda funny, I bought my last car in Dallas too. There's no selection for the "specialized" vehicles here in Arkansas.

    Kyle, with that fairly high mileage it may be a straight car for that price, in which case it's a fairly good deal if it's been in texas from new. However, that's a dealer with no ebay track record. carfax it. If it is a texas car from new, get it inspected and have them particularly check for body repair. If it has changed states I'd give it a miss. Be patient. There's another one coming tomorrow.

    I would also inquire about engine repairs, specifically overheating/head gasket repairs. Lots of pictures of the chrome wheels but only one bad picture of the engine compartment.
