1996 Lexus ES 300: Will The Bike Fit?
June 29, 2012
Don't act all surprised, you knew it was coming.
A) This is me we're talking about here.
B) This well-worn Lexus is the most perfect car in the fleet for transporting bicycles.
Obviously not because the rear seats fold down (they don't), but rather because it's the crappiest car in the fleet, so I can't see anyone getting all bunched up if me or Jacquot just happen to get the interior slightly dirty with our mountain bikes. Of course, the goal remains, as always, to NOT get the interior dirty. Hence the big blanket.
On another note, here's our latest poll question: What are the chances Josh Jacquot will ever drive the '96 ES 300?
2) Highly unlikely
3) Not a chance in hell
