    Hello all,

    I have just bought a Legend- what a motor!

    I am a one time employee of HUK and was the one who began Homologation testing in UK with the first Accord in I think 1975 or 6.

    I currently have also an FR-V 2010 reg and my wife has a Jazz and an S2000. I also have some Honda 2 wheelers.

    Great to see an Accord forum.

    Rob,
    Thanks for welcome. It is so long ago that I took the first Accord to MIRA for the "crash" test. It's amazing that the name is still going- we never thought it would. There was quite some negativity within and without Honda UK to the names of both the Civic and the Accord. I even collated the "Post Civic" study for all Europe in Summer I think in 1977. So much for what many of us thought.

    Regards,

    Rob
