Lightbulb Introducing Legend Search!

Hello my fellow Acura Legend Owners, I am extremely excited to announce

Legend Search!(beta)



What that you say? vinh you're so dumb and wasted all that time knowing that AL has a good search function and of course google! Why would we use yours?"

Yes I know those exist already and are used quite a bit. But let me convince you to take advantage of what I've done for you guys.

A little background:
As you may or may not know I am a Freelance creative, webdesigner, graphic designer at heart and I'm always down to try some side projects that help people.

This was originally a AcuraZine project to help noobs (you know the ones..that ask redundant questions that could be solved by searching): vinhdesigns.com/searchaz but it failed to pass big corporation boss and now I cant promote over there, but its kinda still in use by those who know about it. But now I have converted it so tailors to the Acura Legend community! After all the Legend was my first car as was this forum. Also as a tribute to my (now totaled) Canterbury Green Legend, the site is themed in that color.

What I've created:
A search engine that utilizes Google to pull vast amounts of data from Acuralegend.org, acuralegend.com and acuraworld.com and help people find exactly what they're looking for. Some might say google is fine enough, and for some it is. But the Google custom search I put together targets this site directly. So basically I tried to make it as easy as possible for noobs and vets alike to find exactly what they need.

Features: (for the sake of time, I will reuse the AZ screen shots)
  • Extremely simple site design w large format text and buttons


  • Auto-complete


  • image enhanced search results (some browsers)


  • Image search within threads


  • Mobile ready! (iphone tested)


    How do you do this??
    1. Simple: Go to the site SearchAZ in safari
    2. click the add bookmark button
    3. Add to Home Screen
    4. Rename to whatever you like, I suggest SEARCHAZ (fits perfectly)
    5. Click add and youre done

    WORKS ON ANDROID TOO!









As you can see it is in "beta" and needs more testing/tweaking so please feel free to leave any feedback you might have and/or constructive criticism. Also let me know if you'd like to help with the mini-site itself and refining the keywords etc etc.

This is 100% free and a labor of my love for Acura Legend community.


Thanks to:
SPREAD THE NEWS or not lol but thanks for looking!

Very nice search tool. I had been looking for info on a collapsing lower rad hose and did not find it - until using Searchaz. Thanks for the effort!

only reason i said that is cuz i thought it was his first post, and the fact that he had AW and .com corporate mongers involved i would never use the search just because of that. i wouldn't want to be using anything that has .com involved.

i don't see what the problem with the search feature here on this forum is, it does exactly what it should, except that it won't let you search a few key terms we use around here.
