There is a feeling when driving a Legend that you get in no other car, it has a unique feeling of comfort with a sense of sportiness with it's double wishbone set-up & low center of gravity. Yet one facet never overshadows the other, they come together in a type of synergy. Mate that to the Legend's timeless looks with purposeful & elegant body lines and you have yourself an amazing car. Its not perfect but it comes close.

When asked by friends why don't I sell it because of its "apparent" impracticality, I reply: "If you had your dream car, would you sell it?"



Very good points.

I have thought about it a couple of times, but then i realize all the time, money and effort that i put into making her unique to my style, I also have a bunch of plans for her in the future.

She's never leaving me, i already lost one legend due to stupidity, won't do it again.

I am considering getting a 6spd coupe tho

I have but then I go for a drive or do a nice 2hr detail and those impure thoughts are gone. I've invested way too much time, money, blood sweat and tears for me to see someone else enjoy it. Only way I'm giving up my Vanessa is till death do us apart.

I think about it daily.

But the quote above is in my head also.

I thought about it multiple times, kept telling myself "no" because of the hours and money I spent and the bond I had with it. Then, after I got t-boned, I had to choose to fix it and keep it or buy something newer, more practical, and more reliable; however I could not have both at the same time because I had no space to keep both cars. I kind of forced myself to pick the more practical option over the emotional attachment option of keeping the legend and bought a 6mt TL. Do I like the TL? Yes, very much so. Do I regret that I sold my Legend? Every day.

Another reason for not selling is that if I put it on Craigslist with some pictures, half the active AcuraLegend.org members would be all over me after somebody found the posting and recognized the car.

I need to sell it to somebody in a bar after playing golf or something like that. No pictures posted, just sign over the title and get the cash.

I have thought about getting a next car to derive while I work on it. I got big plans and I refuse to sell it.



I know someone who wants to let go of a h22 cb7 that I can while fixing up the legend. Trying to decide if I should take it or not.
