About 5 years ago, I mentioned to my brother in law, should he ever decide to get a new vehicle, to let me know how much he wanted for his 2004 Lexus RX 330. He mentioned the conversation to me last weekend, and said he was starting to see what he liked, and asked if I was still interested. I am.
Saw the post by Turbineguy with the black velvet Bentley, and I wanted to look up the “average” price of the car so I could make myself feel superior by laughing at someone with more money than brains.
First I would like to thank each of you that took the time to offer advice and insight. Truly appreciated.
Step son had an accident a while ago. He thinks he’s finally figured out what vehicle he wants to replace the 93 Toyota pickup we bought him. I’m still amazed at how much we got for the truck with over 130k miles.
I’m sure it’s for someone, but it’s not for me.
It’s missing the gold emblem from the center of each wheel, (I confess I don’t know if those are caps or not), so I’m going to have to pass.

Got a text from my cousin this weekend. We grew up either in the same house, or a few minutes walk from each other so we decided we were brothers instead of cousins when we were kids. We have given each other, or our moms, me to aunt, he to my mom, cars a few times through the years, but this one... I’m thinking…
Bought some used Austins for my 17 Golf Woflsburg, and I believe the big gift for me this year will be tires so I can finally put them on the car.
Sometimes you work on the same thing for so long, or you have been doing it for so many years, you just have to laugh at yourself when you get that fraction of a second “Oh no! Which one is the replacement part?!” panic, because you took it out of the static bag, set it down, and had to go do something else for a few…
I know it’s not the greatest picture, but it’s dark at 04:45. Phone cameras, bumper to bumper, low light, you get the idea. What I was trying to capture is the badge to the left of the license plate that says “Police Interceptor”.
Some interesting experiments. There are more on his channel.
Smelled smoke, and not that good neighbor is BBQing kind, then I heard the sirens.
Drove to the store this afternoon, spotted this on the way. Had to get a pic for you all on the way home. It’s so shiny, and those wheels!
I arrive home from work last Thursday, go around the back of my car to take out the cans I bring home for the lad so he can turn them in for a little extra cash, and I notice a shiny patch of aluminum where my month sticker used to be on my license plate.
When you go to CVS with your wife so she can pick up a prescription, and this guy is walking to his car...
Off to the body shop. No hate for bikers, I used to ride almost ever day, but if you are lane splitting on a circular on-ramp, you are on a curve I can’t see, so when I signal and look,there is nothing there. Then I start my lane change...
In the work parking lot last Friday. It’s been a long time since I have seen one that wasn’t strictly a desert vehicle being transported.
