2 Years & 1000 Posts Later - Compilation of the Gobstopper (No 56K!)
 
My name is Mike, and I am a Legend Enthusiast. I have wanted a Legend since before I was even old enough to drive. My original plan was to get a LS coupe but after test driving so many Legends, I finally found the right one. This LS sedan happened to be owned by a close neighbor who lives right down the street and was definitely in the best condition out of all the ones that I had seen. It was a struggle convincing him to sell the car, as he did not want to part with it at all for some time. So I saved up for a while, convinced him that I wanted it bad enough and was willing to pay him whatever he wanted, took out a bank loan, and paid it all off last September.

I'm currently approaching the 150k mark. Roughly every mechanical component in the car has been serviced or replaced. I will have had it for 2 years in a few weeks!

So here is a dedication and my 1000th post:

Very Nice .. :thumbsup:

20Michael03 08-25-07 10:35 PM

Congrads on the amazing work you have done on your Legend. :thumbsup: Keep up the great work Mike. Lovin the pix :-p

Tyson 08-25-07 10:39 PM

Awesome post, Mike, and an even awesome-er Legend! She's come a long way. Can't wait to see what the next two years and thousand posts brings. That's interesting you were looking for a KA8 initially. I bet the prior owner of your KA7 wouldn't even recognize it -- you ought to swing by and show the guy all the upgrades you've made.

AustinForester 08-25-07 10:46 PM

damnit, thats supposed to be my exhaust! damn you drew :P

Looking good mike, quite the compilation.

aww-shiet 08-25-07 11:01 PM

Xcaliber003 08-26-07 02:29 AM

Nicely done!!! Your story is inspiring. Glad to see it was tastefully modded.

Double Glow 08-26-07 02:32 AM

Very Very sweet! I've only had my legend 6months and I'm already almost at 3kposts. Ouch...atleast i don't post whore as much as Austin or Greek. Might i recommend a Weapon r and a sr5 or T. chip?

Pinyix 08-26-07 08:28 AM

Nice compilation. I think you should be showin off a console on here though. And post some more. You're making my high post count seem embarrassing.

EarlThePearl 08-26-07 09:18 AM

Thanks Tyson, You have always been a huge inspiration.

I was searching pretty hard for a coupe at first and once I finally got the sedan, I swore to myself that my next car would be an Acura Legend coupe LS. I can only hope to find the right one when the time comes. :)

Thanks, I try to be tasteful when modifying the Legend. It's style is timeless, and I wouldn't dream of messing that up.

Thanks Ryan, actually I already have a CAI "in the bag" I just haven't installed it yet. I haven't thought much about a chipped ECU, but it has crossed my mind...we'll see.

Thanks Ken. I'll probably be posting even less now that I am back in school full-time. Installing EDM/UKDM console soon.

Thanks Earl. I've never seen a G2 Canterbury Green KA8 cleaner and cooler than yours is. If I could, I'd get my coupe in the same color. :D
