REAR DECK --- IN ALL ITS MASSIVE AND FUNCTIONAL GLORY

LSh's rear deck appears nearly identical to the non-hybrid version, which means it looks like the back end of any traditional huge sedan with massive trunk space. In fact, the trunk is so large, that even outfitted with the batteries for the hybrid system (which are covered and not visible), there is still more than enough room for not one, but for at least two big golf bags and maybe another bag or two for clothing and other weekend --- or week-long --- essentials. Or, you could say LS600h L offers interior room for five full-size American-style adults, and enough trunk room for three-to-four of same, though in horizontal mode. Eight cylinders and only two exhaust pipes prove that Lexus stylists never went to high school in Santa Ana, California, where the classic "two times twice pipes" configuration (four exhaust pipes, for those of you sadly uneducated in the art) was the most popular on the weekly Sunday evening Cruise Nights which featured lo-riders from as far north as Oakland and as far east as Phoenix, and even Alburquerque, New Mexico. I'm talking circa 1970; and that Sunday night cruisin' scene on Santa Ana's Fourth Street was fantastic.
