That wasn't the picture I was thinking but, considering the recent Jody portfolio, what the hell.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Ah... a driver.

What percentage of interchangeable components do they share ?
Will the trusty Toyota independent be able to service the LS , not that you would , I am just asking for myself ?

There are basically no interchangeable parts of any significance in the Lexus LS line with the rest of the Toyota line. The LS is a large rwd based sedan that borrows nothing from the dominant fwd Toyota car or rwd Toyota truck line. The LS is their halo car. Toyota is smart enough not to fuck with high content sports cars anymore.
