common guys.......we are arguing about the most insane things i have ever heard...so lets ALL AGREE on something..my friend and i were talking about this subject; In 1993 Acura came out with a Luxury Sport Coupe (In the Type II) with 230hp!! and a 6spd transmission!! Then in 1994 they came out with the same 230hpengine...BUT IN A FOUR DOOR SEDAN!!! who the hell was compeating with them back then!?!? They were way ahead of their time with these cars and THATS why I love them so much..because its a 93' that compeats and even beats some of the new sport coupes and sedans.....
Car 1: 3.5L 1991 LS Coupe 5 Spd Blk/Blk
Car 2: 1999 Acura 3.5RL
Car 3: 2004 GMC Sierra Z71

There's definitely some better vehicles out there, but you would have to spend twice as much money as yoiu would on your legend, and you would be driving around something that you see every day. I see one or two G2 Legends per week around here. That's what makes these cars so special, rarity.

I see 3-5 G2 Legends (usually Sedans) on my daily commute. The Legend must have sold very well here in Northern California, there's tons of 'em on the road. Naturally they aren't as commonplace as Camrys/Accords.....but there are alot of them, some in avg shape, some really clean like mine.
I'm at 126K miles and am shooting for the 200K mark, I figure another 3 years till I get there.
i agree with you hass on the thing abotu new legends too...
if you notice alot of cars seem to get dated once a sucessor is named and displayed...the legend is timeless...and a VERY hard to beat design, but if soemthing comes out called the "Legend" but doesn't look as good or as revolutionary it will date the Legend anyway. ounno i'd rather keep the legend an 86-95 dream of the Perfect acura.=/
I was told by a Dealer that only 500 Legends a year were sold in all of Canada in 1994 and 1995 .... only 1,000 cars in those later two years ! They sold a lot more in 1990 - 1993, but I am not sure of the number.
Because of the long Canadian cold winters, there are not to many nice Legends around here anymore. Most of the ones I see are 1993 or earlier and have had a hard life here.
i see a lot of legends where i live. most of the ones i see are driven by 40+ year old women. funny thing is that are all black sedans like mine. i have yet to see a coupe.
my school librarian hates me because i drive the same 91 black legend ls as she does and im like 40 years younger than she is.
ya, shes jealous
well you are right.....considering i've been the talk of the posts.....there was no japanese or american car that could compete with the legend as far as a combination of sport and luxury......the rx-7 and supratt were both available for around the same price, but they are too sporty i'm guessing and not in the same class. i mean basically, was there even a japanese or american car available back then in stick that was considered a luxury sedan (i'm talking about the gs)? now as far as german goes...there was, but i'm sure you guys don't want to hear my opinion since it wouldn't be in the same price range. You can't compare german to japanese...as far as price goes.
also as i've stated before....times have changed. definitions of sport, luxury, sport/luxury, etc have changed. i think we on the boards still hang on to the fact that, "well back in the day the legend was great and still looks good today". which is cool by me, but technology has changed and there are better cars out there. pretty soon guys we are going to be getting smoked by neons in the 60 and 1/4.
also i see legends up here a dime a dozen...all the time. dmenn, jedinyte, jason520, and some other people all live around my area. there are also two red ls coupes, 1 6-speed, 1 auto, a few black gs sedans...tons of g2 sedans and i see a handful of coupes. in my area though the legends are growing more scarce....the germans are taking over.
