Thanks!! The car has been in the family since new. My brother owned it for all these years, garaged day in and day out. After it was replaced by a new Lexus, he sold it to me for song, practically so to speak. That was about 6 months ago. Although in excellent shape, it had a few dings and dents... pretty usual for the age. Carl's Custom Color & Body repaired it to the shape it's in today.
Interior wise, the front seats were always covered by Acura OEM sheepskins. Not only the seats were preserved, more impressively are the condition of the skins (not pictured). They look and feel like new.
Speaking of the rims. To outfit wheels on this baby was a challenge... as most of us know. Not too many manufacturers make high offsets anymore. In fact, originally I had 5-Zigens +43 offset mounted and it sat right against the fender line, maybe a few mm inside. I didn't cared for that visual/stance so the best the shop could find with 48 to 50 offset was quite limited. In a pinch, I went with the those from the catalog.
You know... wheels are like lipsticks, different color & shape for different folks. Sure I'd love to mount a set of VOLKS; but to spend more on wheels than what I paid for the car (or value of the car) is out of the question. IMO, to do so is like... putting lipstick on a PIG. I'm not implying the Legends are pigs, but you get my drift. Having said that, I'm always keeping an eye out for another set of wheels... with the right fit of course.
