I reckon either another LS400, or something else big engine like a s-class or similar.
Oldies: 1972 Austin 1100 2dr - Project Rust bucket, 1974 MGB GT - A stereotypical classic car.
Moderns: 2000 Boxster - New enough to drive sublimely but old enough to nearly feel like a classic, 2010 Aldi A4 - Owned to placate the wife on my crap buying.

Cars have had all of those, but I don't know one that had all of them in one car. That would blow my mind.

I think the book time on an LS400 'belt change was determined without taking a gorilla tightening various bolts into consideration.

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

That won't be no good, cos it's in Sussex, or will soon be in Wales. Because it wasnt found for sale 4 miles from its originating dealer it'll be no good

Sussex has been achieved. Google lied. It's a mere 160 miles from Dudley to here. I love cruise control. You can actually use it at night too. And Radio 2 is MUCH better too.

There was a slight altercation with a Renault Master (not the cool Master) on the M25. He was close enough to leave a mark in the dirt on the passenger door, and push that mirror in.
