Re: Bykfixers new money pit Lexus

$20 got 6 gallons of gas. Gyah!!
Now if it could go 0-60 in 3 shakes of a lambs tail or get 25mpg in the city I'd be ok wit dat. But it goes 0-60 eventually and gets the mpg of a loaded dump truck around town so I'll just have to grin and bear it. You gotta pay to play so driving around in a mini-limo aint gonna be cheap. It's not like my old 77 Cutlass that had ahigh output 350 engine and a whirlpool in the tank though. That old posh cruiser went 0-60 lickety split but never met a filling station it didn't like. It also liked that 1970's fuel too so none of this weak sauce 93 octane crap we call premium these days. Nope it liked it's fuel at least 102 but preffered 108. So you either put in racing fuel or a load of octane boost and got about 8mpg city or highway. Oh, Lord if you turned on the A/C it was worse. But she sure was fast.

So this car is a kinda replacement for that Cutlass in a luxury car way without all of the zoom potential. At some point I'll take it to a shop and have the guy look it over while on a lift and give me the skinny on where to start pouring money in.

Now small trip to a park for photos would have used 3 gallons of fuel in the Cutlass. But probably used a half gallon in the Lexus. It was a good day to take a short spin in the nice pollen air after doing some yard work.


I suck at car pix but liked this one ok.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
