It is not a rust bucket. Why do you think it is? The exhaust does not count as that is what all those Jags do by that time and mile.

I saw the screws and I can tell you that's enough of an indicator of how it was taken care of. I put grease on all screws or metal parts under the car, I like a dirty and greasy underside. Yeah mufflers can rust out and I have a case like that with the Rx7 where my whole exhaust system is like pulverized. Nothing to worry about though and I got a new system from Racing Beat that way way thicker than the original crap.

I presume you realize the Jag I linked to has no fucking Lucas in it. Jag had the funds to deep shit that fecal turd biscuit crap long ago. I have Huey playing in it already.

Most low mile cars I have seen from up there have surface corrosion unless they were kept in a concrete, well sealed, and humid free, so to speak, garage with the doors kept shut most of the time. Also the car is filthy in the pics and the pics are honest, a rarity for the Bay. The exhaust looks bad but they all look that bad on similar Jags unless cleaned by that mileage. It is a Jag people not a Lexus.
You have an attachment to the Lexus LS. What's the scoop ?

The Lexus LS is probably the best car in the world. I say this very grudgingly, but with no malice. Refinement, durability, longevity, and contemporary drivability are the primary reasons for the LS being the best. Do your own research, not using pop car rags, as they never take long term durability into account.
