I was routing through some old pictures today and I came across one of the only pics of my previous car. It was a '91 Audi 200 Turbo. Despite the maintenance, I loved this car. It was def. ahead of it's time, and was loaded (Power everything, heated mirrors, heated door locks, front/rear heated seats, Elec. climate control, bose Premium, BBS wheels, etc. etc.) I was a huge euro fan before I got my Legend, and was set on getting a new GTI before I got my Legend. In fact, I didn't like Legends (or any Honda/Acura) much at all before I got mine. That said, after owning my Legend for the past 4 years, I will never go back to owning a Euro (unles it's an M3 or 911). Anyways, just thought I'd post a pic of it. believe it or not, it drew a decent amount of attention by other euro owners, probably because of the fact that it was fairly rare nowadays. I'm really curious as to what everyone else traded up from, and would love to see some pics of your previous rides.

i had two nissan maximas, one 1985 with the digital dash, and one 89 SE 5 speed black on black. before that my first car was actually the little brother to the legend. yes my first car was a Sterling 825s,navy blue exterior with blue leather interior. nice car but too many vacuum lines, and most had electrical problems, especially the 827 SI and i had to get the parts from Austin Rover. now i'm on my second Legend, and lovin it.

First car: 1986 Chevy Celebrity CL (free and worth every penny!). That's me in the bowtie (my parents bought it new).

I have since owned the following (not in order):

1986 Honda Prelude Si (no pics on my computer)

1989 Honda Prelude Si:

1991 Honda Prelude Si 4WS

1988 Acura Legend L sedan (no pics on my computer)

1986 Acura Legend base sedan:

1991 Acura Legend L coupe:

1994 Acura Legend LS coupe (you've all seen a million times)

A couple of pics from when I had the Celebrity, 91 Lude, and Legend at the same time:

I gotta scan some pics. I'll update with them later 'cause I'm at work right now.
First car was a 1962 Chevy Corvair Monza. Red with a black interior and manual transmission.

Second car was a 1983 Jaquar XJ6 Vandem Plas (special edition). Black with tan leather and auto tranni.

After those I got my Legend. I don't miss the Jag but I still want another Corvair (rear engine).

My next car will be either a 240sx or RX-7 and I'm keeping the Leg.

Technically, you already owned part Legend on your first car. The 825 has the Legend C25A motor in it from the 1986-1988 Sedan, and the 827 which was introduced in the Legend Coupe in 1987 2.7L V6. Has tons of little hoses all over the place :)

Those two cars had VERY similar features to Legends.

i had a 1985 caddilac devile coupe, it was a POS


automatic tranny had no 3 or 4 gear because they turned into nuetral

if you closed the drivers door with the window in any way down it would fall off the track and into the door

groves in the windshield from running the wipers with no blade

couldnt open the passenger door from the outside

no AC

passenger window didnt work

would leak power steering fluid like no tommarow

brakes barely worked at low speeds

needed shocks

you could flood it, even though it was F/I(just by pumping the gas while its idling)

aftermarket sterio had a busted display and cd player wouldnt work

it would have a hard time starting

alternator had problems

the computer would wack out somtimes and display weird things
