Hi there, You can't go wrong with a Lexus, it is a glorified Toyota! That is a pretty fair price for it, they normally will sell for around $22,000 to $25,000 for that year. So the price is definitely right, and yes you really don't see very many of those cars on the road at all. My neighbor had one, only thing he said that always went wrong was the low-profile tires on it, he said you would get a blow-out if you hit a decent pothole or if you hit a curb, he has had 3 flat tires from hitting pot holes, stay away from the run-flat tires. So just make sure the tires on the car your interested in don't have the run flat tires and you should be ok. The nice thing about the SC430 is that it is a hardtop convertible, and has a futuristic look for the year, you would never know its a 2002. Good luck
