Default Approaching milestone, making up for lost time not posting...

The coupe's mileage! Supposedly there may be about 100,000 miles missing.

Got the coupe from Ken K back in February 2012 at about 125,000 miles. Pouring on the miles as my daily driver!

If I recall correctly, it was actually 130,619 miles that I handed the car off to you The car found the right owner, that's for sure.

I always thought this car had two wheels in the junkyard when I bought her. She burned oil, had gaping holes in the dashboard, had illegal tints, came with beat TL rims on three different types of tires, and all of the lights were illegal. I know you painted most of the car, and much more, I'm sure. This car looking good at three-hundred-thousandish miles is no accident.

Nice one - Legend from the Grave, almost Legend Undead.....

A little setback. Coupe's temp gauge had an uptick as I was almost home last Monday. There's a coolant leak somewhere; as I drove it to the shop Wednesday night I had the classic rpm up and downs. Originally I was bringing it in because the a/c wasn't blowing cold air on the first warm day the other week. Double whammy.

Good thing I have that sedan to drive. As it's been said before, if you want to drive a Legend every day you need 2 of them for sure.

I had 3 registered and on the road, plus a 4th parts car, plus boxes of spare parts, just so I could drive 2 of them. By the way, those boxes of spare parts are still waiting for you.

Hi all

Water pump failed after changing out all those timing belt items last year.

WP was a new "Gates" brand, someone's rolling their eyeballs
