Howdy Oppo, since I’ve been graciously gifted posting privileges, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dylan, but y’all can call be Bylan, I live in the suburbs of Illinois ~1hr from Chicago, and I love cars. I’m 22 and pursuing my Associates Degree in Mechanical engineering, with a Bachelors in Engineering in the future. I own 2 cars, a gold 1997 LS400 that I bought when I was 18 and I’ve put it through hell, and a few months ago I bought a black on black 1998 LS400. Today it finally started after sitting dormant for 2 weeks. I’ve developed a bit of an obsession with these old Lexus’s, learning them inside and out makes owning multiple easier. These cars have taught me a ridiculous sum of things, and i fix everything on them myself. Through a lot of trial and error, I’ve done timing belt/water pumps on both, crank seals, cam seals on the 97 (the 98 is much more difficult, requires removal of camshafts), recently a starter replacement on the 98, and everything in between. I love getting my hands dirty and making something work. I feel blessed that I found this car forum, you are all the nicest bunch of people on the internet that I’ve seen. I’m not an automotive journalist or anything like that, but I hope to share some of my life and a lot of my cars with you lot. And now for some pictures (yes they’re probably crap quality, I have a quirky Blackberry Key 2 LE because Iphones are boring and lame, and physical keyboards are COOL)
