The ls does still get attention mine does at least I think it gets attention still because if you have an ultimate like mine with the 17" aluminum chrome rims and in black it just doesn't really look that old it still looks very modern and when its clean boy does it look luxurious I even had a coworker the other day ask me what year my ls was and I said 05 and he said REALLY I'd doesn't look that old it look pretty new.
Bought an LS, then found out a friend of mine also had an LS( both v8s ). Then we met up to compare and contrast (his in 2nd gen, mine is 1st gen) we got some snow on a 30 degree day, so we had a nice layer of slush/ice. Maybe you guys never have fun doing donuts, but dang it was fun. There was an entire open parking lot until someone called the cops fortunately the cop was nice and just told us to stop.
