I was so stoked when I saw Doug's video pop up in my subs this morning! The 2G Legend Coupe 6MT was one of my dream cars before I got my driver's license and it remains a classic for me to this day. Clarion did a fantastic job restoring that beauty to its like-new condition; I wonder how much that particular car is worth now?

Wow, brings me back to getting my first car in 99 and my user name, the CL. I know it isn't the same, the Legend is way cooler but the 90s.

Edit - just got the part about the small grill, bring that grill back and get rid of the beak Acura.

as long as the headgasket was taken care of, these cars were solid...

Ken does it remind you of our 1G TL days?

What's really surprising to me is finding out that the Legend (back in the early nineties) had such luxury features as soft-closing doors and heated seats! I never knew that!

Yep and in Japan had an in-dash navigation system as well.

Only the coupe had the soft-closing doors though.

I seriously thought this thread was going to be about Tyson when I opened it.

Funny you mention that, I was behind his Legend the other day (I was in my RL/Rebadged Legend)

Tyson, if you're seeing this, you were getting off of 51

I love seeing a rebadged "LEGEND". I remember a while back, there was a guy with a black RLX rebadge that looked incredible!

Yeah I can rebadge my RL for about $50. One of these days. My suspension was a much higher priority

I'd love to drive an RL, if I could find one. I had an Odyssey as a loaner this past week and I loved how it felt comfortable and solid.

Just saw this. Too funny. Yeah, I live in that area. I PM'd you with my contact info.

Doug and I had emailed in the past about him wanting to do a Legend review but the Clarion car in San Diego was more convenient than my Phoenix car.

We still plan on connecting the next time he's in my area.

His Legend video is still about 25k views away from hitting a million. It started off as a strong performer but has tapered off. Most of his stuff tends to hit a million much sooner.

Looking forward to taking my Legend on a cross-country road trip to Florida this October for the 15th annual National Acura Legend Meet. 566k and counting.
