1996 Lexus ES 300: Kumba-yikes!
August 11, 2012
Vehicle inspection stickers? California hasn't had such a program for years. I think Takahashi's '57 T-bird has one. And so we sometimes run across something like this.
I followed this somewhat rough 1996 Lexus ES300 for awhile and, surprisingly, the wheels seemed to be pointing in the right direction and it tracked straight. The cabin looks mostly intact too, but it's obviously in no shape for another hit.
It'll buff out.
