Well, it's a long story, so I will try to be brief. In 1991 I got a job selling cars for a main Honda dealer. I always thought Honda made good quality cars, but they never appeared to be particularly desirable. My first moment of enlightenment came when I took in part ex, a 91 Civic VT. It had no power steering and looked much like all the other Civic models. When I took it for a test drive, Wow, I couldn't believe how fast it was. It looked just like all the old granny Civics but was an entirely different car altogether. It handled superbly and was a really 'hard' sports car. It was a real shock. Over the next year I discovered many of Honda's hidden nuggets. Some were sold in very small numbers. The Accord 2.0I-16 (using the twin cam Prelude engine) was fast, smooth, quiet and had everything on it. I have only ever seen 3 or 4 in all these years. The Legend thing started when I was asked to collect our new demonstrator Legend from Tilbury. It was a 1991 3.2 saloon in silver. As a young chap at the time I was a little overwhelmed by this car. I totally fell in love with it, and from that day forth I took every opportunity to take it out for a 'demo;. I sold 5 Legends in total, none of the other sales staff ever sold any! The ultimate Legend moment came when I was looking for a particular car for a customer. Via a stock exchange I collected a white 3.2 coupe and returned it to Sussex from Edinburgh. The journey was mostly at night and remains one of my favourite drives ever. I couldn't afford a luxury car at all back then, but vowed that one day I had to own one. I have never seen a white coupe ever again since, such a handsome beast. And so it came to pass that, after waiting for 27 years, I got myself a 46000 mile KB1 minter. Sometimes, folk say, that wanting something is better than having it, and that any long held aspiration is likely to be an anti-climax. I am pleased to report this is certainly not the case. The legend is everything I dreamt it would be, and a great deal more on top. I am totally smitten. It's so quiet, it feels very expensive all over, the controls, the gadgets, the engine. It really is a fabulous car. I am planning to drive it down to Naples in Italy later this year to celebrate my 60th birthday. Can't wait!
