Converting Dreams to Reality: My 2004 Lexus SC 430 Convertible

In 1965, my cousin bought a 1964 Galaxy 500 convertible and I was quite envious! In the same year, I enrolled in education classes at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. During my university years, I drove a VW 'Bug.' It wasn't until I got my first teaching position that I could consider purchasing a new car. It was the age of the muscle car, so I bought a 1970 Pontiac Acadian 350 with a four-gear standard positraction transmission and power galore. Patty (my wife) and I met on our first teaching jobs, and after four years of courting, we got married on July 10, 1971. We drove that Acadian until we started our family, with our son Kim arriving in 1975 and daughter Bree in 1977. From the on, we drove 'family-friendly' vehicles and all dreams of owning a convertible were put on hold.

Lexus Wants All Its Cars to Drive Like the LC

  Lexus Wants All Its Cars to Drive Like the LC Yes, even its new baby crossover.At the show, we caught up with Chika Kako, Lexus's first female chief engineer and the woman who led development of the UX, who revealed the interesting links between Lexus' baby crossover and its flagship coupe. Frankly, she got us a lot more interested in the UX than we were when we first saw it.

The SC 430 carried over to 2003 and through 2004 with no changes except for the addition of the Lexus Link system. The 2010 Lexus SC 430 is a four-passenger luxury sports car that features a power-retractable hardtop to let the sun shine in.

I retired in 2001, after 33 years in education. At that time I said to Patty, 'I want to be a kid again!' As a teenager, I had trained horses for the neighbours and I wanted to try my hand at it again. So, from working in the field of education, I went to working literally in the field, training horses. Through all the years of raising family, providing learning atmospheres for children and horsing around in retirement, the dream of owning a convertible never faded. It wasn't until last spring, stimulated by my convertible-driving younger brother, that the dream of owning one came roaring back. Patty and I initiated a search and, after six months, we were off to Calgary to test drive a 2004 Lexus SC 430--a hard-top convertible that I am happy to say we now own. After 47 years together, not only do I still have the hottest woman in town, I have a car she deserves to be seen in. To paraphrase from 'The Corvette Song' by George Jones, 'She's hotter than a two-dollar pistol, the fastest thing around, long and lean every young man's dream... But it's not the car I want, it's the brunette in the 'vertible that turns me on!' And that's my Patty.

Lexus Grabs LQ Trademark, Possibly For Flagship Crossover .
This could be the LF-1 Limitless come to life. If you take a look at the Lexus lineup, you’ll notice something about how it names its models – if you consider two-letter combinations names. Across its lineup, Lexus denotes its flagship model with the “L” prefix with the S, C, and X suffix denoting sedan, coupe, and SUV, respectively. Earlier this month, Lexus registered “LQ” in the U.S., possibly for a future model, according to AutoGuide.com. Conveniently, Lexus showed the LF-1 Limitless concept during the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year.
