Here is our story on our recent 6 speed aquisition
Back in 1999 Theresa finally agreed to give up here beloved 87 Supra. It had 103k on it but it ran great and the body was perfect. Sold it for 4800 dollars and the search for a 95 LS Coupe began. Found the PERFECT Milano Red in Boston at an Acura dealer but they wanted a TON of money. She really wanted it bet agreed to keep looking. Found a dark Green one at Park Ave Acura in NJ and made the deal. Two very short years later we decide to build a h'ouse and we get rid of the Coupe for a Dodge Durango RT and she starts to drive my 95 GS. She never really cares for the GS so once we are in the house we make a deal on an 02 TL-s lease. Three years later and it's time to find a new car for her as the lease is up shortly. Doesn't really care for the new TL-s from the outside and there is no rear window visibility for her. Likes the new BMW 330xi but at 43K Dollars equipped the same as the TL...well...bye bye beemer...Likes the new A4 at less dollars than the 330 but still a lot.
So that fateful friday evening when we are enjoying a nice glass of Chardonnay as is our custom on Fridays....she asks the all important question..
'Do you think we could find a nice Legend coupe with low miles?'
A couple of clicks on the laptop and what do you know... A milano red like she wanted in the first place!!!

I guess it's my turn.. Well I had a 93 L coupe white auto and I loved that car. Sadly I go to my friends house and come out and the car is gone. well during those painful months of trying to find it and dealing with the insurance company, I had my 87 prelude to hold me down. I started looking for another legend. I was actually about to buy another auto on ebay, but I was outbidded. LUcky thing that happened, because a day later on ebay I saw it. A 93 red coupe L and it was a 6SPEED. I made sure I won that auction and when I went to pick it up, damm the previous and only owner gave me every paper of work done to the car. It was meticulously taken car of by only the Acura dealer. Paid for the car and drove her home. I've made her into the beauty that she is today. She is UNTOUCHABLE

I bought my current Legend 6-speed three years ago, it had 85,000 on the odometer.
At the time I was driving a lightly modded Legend L auto (1994). It was nice, powerful, but after driving the 6-speed I knew I couldn't pass it up.
Sold the auto in less than a week, and never looked back. I do not ever intend selling my GS.
I am representing Manchester, NH, btw. If you see me in the area, it will most likely be the rear plates you see.
1995 Champaign/Gold 6-speed Legend LS Coupe
Well, I totaled my previous 92ls 5spd coupe in queens which really depressed me. I vowed that I had to have a car with at least as much as the legend had for the money. I wanted a stick only so ended up deciding between an sc300 and another legend. I liked that the sc300 was rear wheel drive and some of the ones i saw on the club lexus forum blew my mind. But there was something about the oem styling that didnt appeal to me. So after going back and forth I decided to get the legend.
I found one in kansas that was green 6spd with 170k on it. That was the one for me I told myself. But for about 2 weeks the guy fiddled his thumbs getting me the info that i needed on the car. in the meantime, i found another 95ls 6spd champagne coupe in ohio for only 6000 with 181k. He mailed me pics and on the day i got them he sold the car.
thats when i decided i wasnt gonna let the kansas one get away. i setup with the guy to fly there on saturday to pick it up. friday the day before, i call up eric's bro jay about my totaled car and he tells me that he just found a red 6spd 95ls coupe for sale in CT. I was like 'i gotta jump on it immediately'. to make a long story short found out about the car around 4pm, became its proud new owner by 7pm. boy was i lucky. the price of entry, $5000. you couldnt pry me away from my car. i feel like driving now.

I found my '94 6spd L Coupe (type 2) on autotrader.com with only 67k miles. I had been looking around for at least a week until I accidentally came across it from either edmunds.com or kbb.com, don't recall which. Either way it goes, I love her!!!
Had to join the fun! I bought my 94 Coupe 6-speed in '98. I was looking for either an M3 or an RX-7, but always loved the Legend Coupes. I'd heard that finding a 6-speed was very hard (ratio of Auto's to Manuals was about 500-1, I was told). Anyway, I saw a Milano Red coupe driving by Acura of Concord, California, and decided to take a chance. It was a 6-speed with only 28k! It had just come in; not even detailed yet. Bought it for 18k out-the-door that day - paid cash. Never looked back. Now the red paint looks like crap (re-paint coming soon), but it still only has 65k on it! Only mods are 17" Motegi FF3's with Yoko A008's, Alpine CD Changer and Kenwood IE speakers all around. Otherwise stock! Still in love. Will send pic's AFTER the re-paint!!
