My mom has an ES330. Drives like a small tank. Accelerates well for a V6. I like the early 90s ESs, the new ones have the door panels that ride really high up. thumbsdown

At my job, I know some parents who own sweet G35 coupes. The car looks hot and they tell me they absolutely love them. Its luxury, Performance, and style, with a base MSRP at $31,800. Seats four. That'll be my next car, in about 8-10 years. grin

IS300. And when they're not looking, get a supraTT front cut, and swap in the 2jzgtte.

Cady's are domestic, so it'll die before the Lexus is broken in. Since you're dad doesnt fit in the IS, then the ES is the logical choice. Who cares if you don't find it attractive, they're the one's who are gonna be paying for it and driving it. So it's really up to them if they like the styling. I'd buy a 1 yr old GS instead. You can find them in that price range w/low miles & in great shape. Ofcourse it'll be the 6 cylinder, but still, the GS looks the best.
