With the old Lexus totalled, I'm looking for another RX300 or one of the newer models and somewhat constrained by a lack of funds. There will be plenty when the insurance comes through, but that will take awhile and until then, it's cash on hand, which would just about buy me another high-mileage 2000 RX300 and leave nothing for groceries.
Some people are not a fan of Lexus. The tow-truck guy had lots of complaints about, "Those darned Japanese imports." Well.... He's not wrong; Toyota's certainly a Japanese company and the RX300 (etc.) isn't made in the United States. But he's not that right, either: they're built in Ontario and only a quarter of the parts come from Japan.
