Why is it so hard to find a nice legend?

Sure, the coupe that I had needed some work, but it was a fricken milano red six speed. I seriously can't find one i like now. I'm all over craigslist. these are the types of legends available:

1. G1
2. Nice condition, but it's gold or light blue with blue interior and type 1 auto
3. GS sedan with auto tranny, ripped seats, and since it's priced at 1200 it's probably got a BHG
4. riced out piece of crap
5. NOT WHAT I WANT


seriously someone hook me up with a nice legend. I guess i could be a little spoiled from my previous legend....

nice coupe (nighthawk, milano, or desert mist) six speed type 2
nice sedan (nighthawk or pearl white) with a spoiler GS 6sp t2

seriously.

should i just buy a crappy legend, do a 3.5 swap and strip the interior?

*sigh*

i dont even have the facilities to do a swap and mike diaz is in oh frickin hio

it's all good...what happened to your car is effed up...good luck with the search

also it's not the first time I've heard, "its very nice, but its gold" (my wife when I bought my Legend home the first time)

My answer was, "so I guess I don't have to worry about you driving it"

Dude, again I'm sorry for what happened to your Milano Red Coupe; I still can't believe it. I saw it in person when Brent brought it over to the meet and now it's gone, just like that.

I hope you were able to collect something from the insurance to help you with your next Legend.

Patience and a lot of it. I waited about four months until I found my Coupe on eBay. eBay will be your best bet, though you will have to pay for shipping; it's your only chance for finding the Legend you want because it will most likely not be in your area. I am sure a gem will pop up.

Best of luck to you!

What kind of money are you looking to spend?
I know of one GS 6-speed in excellent condition that the owner is sitting on the fence about.
