    What is the longest trip anyone has made to get their LX/LC?

    Next Tuesday 4/24 I fly from Des Moines, Ia to Albuquerque NM to pick up my new to me 2003 LX.
    Thanks to IH8MUD member and Albuquerque resident Ramathorn15 who spent a couple hours crawling all over it and giving me the full report on its condition. He gave me the confidence I needed to pull the trigger long distance.

    Guys like Rami make this place what it is. He volunteered right away and get over to the dealer almost the next day.

    I'll be getting to ABQ first thing in the morning, over to Rami's to change out the "T"s and then heading for OKC to spend the night. Then on to DSM in the morning.

    To say I'm excited would be an understatement. Just about 1000 miles for us to get acquainted.

    My son and I just flew to Ft. Lauderdale from KC about a month ago and had an awesome trip driving back our 06 LX (1450 miles). I'm so glad I did it but then again, I like road trips.

    I gambled and took the easy way ... had my LX470 shipped to me sight unseen from California to North Carolina.

    I may have the shortest. Less than 2 miles for both of mine.

    For my LX I only had to go four houses down and one short block over.

    Drove it home from Des Moines to San Francisco, 1800 miles, in late winter as well. Made the trip in about 36 hours. And I couldn't be happier with the purchase

    Mine was 3.8 miles. And the only 98-02 LC available at a dealer at the time in the entire dallas area. Plenty of LX’s however.

    May have the shortest distance...the guy showed up at my shop saying he was looking to sell and was wondering if we knew of anyone looking. An hour later he called his wife to come get him.

    Flew to Washington DC and drove my LX470 back to Mission Viejo, CA. Over 3000 miles - stopped in Chicago, the Black Hills, Moab, Monument Valley, and Saguaro Nat. park. I got the truck free from my dad so at least I knew its history.

    I drove around 850 miles to get my 80 series a few years ago. Now that I'm looking for a 100, they keep getting bought up before I can secure anything. I missed a 2 owner 2004, 124k miles, timing belt change at 90k, for $16k this weekend by less than a day. Favorite color too. Fun times.... :bang:
