July 15th 2015 was the first day of ownership, only my second car, a 1992 Lexus sc400. I was freshly 17 having just finished junior year of highschool with a v8 luxury yacht(in terrible shape). The following is everything that led up to the Great Scrappening of September 2019.
3 chassis, 1 fire, 8 flatbed trips, 5 sets of rims, 4 blown motors, 2 blown differentials, and every penny from then until now. She rarely ran right, the automatic shifted hard enough to break traction, limp mode every 20 minutes for 1.5 years, wiring harness problems, cracked subframes, cracking chassis, and down the road the manual trans was very crunchy.
After the engine spun a bearing right after a rebuild it was time to move on, given that the trans was on it’s way out and the clutch wouldnt the power either. All the useful parts were stripped in September after the engine blew and she was sent to the scrapyard.
I still miss it though
