    I don’t have any pics yet as I go and pick the car up tomorrow. But I paid for it today after work.

    It’s a 1992 burgundy Acura Legend LS sedan. Has a 3.2l V6 longitudinally mounted but is front wheel drive. Weird right.

    Leather heated seats that work, sunroof that works, Pioneer double din head unit with Bluetooth and aftermarket back up camera. Body is in impeccable shape for being 26 years old. Engine is pretty clean and runs smooth.

    The best part about it is I paid 2100 for it and the car only has 112k miles.

    Awesome find! Did they make manual sedans or was that just the coupes? Looking forward to pics, always loved the Legend.

    Yes they made a 5speed manual version. But finding one of those is even harder than finding the gem I did. First thin to do after I bring it home is do a full inspection this weekend and get the front end aligned. Also needs some new front tires. The passenger side alignment is off and the inside of the tire is almost bald.

    The steering and suspension was still nice and tight. No loose play at all.

    On the to do list is
    -oil change
    -3x tranny flush with f type, then dexron, then Honda ATF.
    -front end alignment
    -spark plugs And air filter
    -tires.

    I am getting some custom “JDM AF” decals made for my car and my cousins IS300.

    The damn car weighs around 3600 lbs lol

    Well coming payday next Wednesday I got a rockauto cart with some goodies. It’s crazy the amount I’m saving compared to buying off eBay.

    I got 9 fram oil filters at $1.56 a piece vs eBay at avg. $14

    A fel pro full intake manifold gasket kit for $3.50 vs eBay at $60

    One Hastings fuel filter at $11.36 vs eBay at $23

    One ultra power air filter for $2.91 vs eBay aftermarket at $27

    6 champion double platinum plugs for $23.92 vs eBay avg $6 per plug

    2 hood lift supports for $6.20 a piece vs eBay at $23 a piece

    A new PCV valve for $2.89 vs ebay at $12.93

    A new gates thermostats for $10.39 vs eBay avg $20

    And new Trico wiper blades for
    Hella cheap.

    Best part is all of this ships from two wharehouses for $16 shipping total. Plus the 5% 6th gen discount.

    Timing belt kit is gonna be ordered the following week. This car should be bullet proofed after my preventive maintenance work. Not bad for throwing a couple hundred dollars into a nice classic JDM legend.
