You are in the Lexus SC 430
What is this discussion about?
Lexus SC 430, Convertible
#1 of 1200 Does anyone want or need a new SC 430?

I can help!
#2 of 1200 well....

if you're offering one, I'll trade you a 1990 Honda Accord with 208k miles on it......its in beautiful condition (for a car with 200+k miles)
#3 of 1200 the solicitors are coming!

Two comments ~ Ugly & over Priced IMO. (PS & Oh I'll also eat it alive with my old Mustang Cobra.) Wait and buy a T Bird for half the price.

Please do not try to compare your car with my work of art based simply on 0-60 performance. Remember, a Subaru WRX may be able to beat a Ferrari 456A from 0-60, but how important is that in the grand scheme of automobile ownership?
Price is subjective based on how much cash you do or don't have. This car is a bargain compared to its real competitors.
And why don't you test an SC430 past 120mph. Mustangs can't even do 140 without heavy modification. Your opinion is unwelcome at best, although you are entitled to it, it is horribly ill-informed. Your argument is similar to a minivan owner complaining about the luggage space and price of a Diablo. I didn't buy my car simply to drag race, but for the quality, luxury, features, and exclusivity.
Please go back to the 'Stang/gold chain chat room with your sour grapes until you hit the lottery and can move up to a real automobile worthy enough to compare with mine.

The good news is that it caught everyone's attention, even though the people I was with were not "car" people.
The bad news is that all three of them thought it was ugly.
Well, at least it's polarizing

As to moving up to a real automobile, I'm seriously contemplating the purchase of a new 2003 Dodge Viper. And just for your edification sir, I have always payed cash for my automobiles. Now I will say again, I believe the SC-430 is an ugly creation and grossly over priced. Thank you for allowing me to reiterate my opinion about your "real automobile".

You must be a child.
Your comparo of sc430 to a mustang is silly;
Stay off the web site play by yourself.
spihinx99; You are slipping to take that stand of comments out of context.
#10 of 1200 You know, I

have never had occasion to agree with dohc32v.
Overpriced, ugly and derivative. Lexus does know its coupe audience, though. They went after a group of affected poseurs with a need to compensate, and, according to the posts here and in other sc430 threads, both current and archived, they hit paydirt.
Well done. Well done indeed...
