LOL, so aparantly somebody thought we stole the car, and was stripping it and leaving the shell behind. Got the title, and everything was cool. In fact, the one cop asked where we got Foster'* beer from since he can't find it anywhere. They were very impressed with how much we stripped in 6.5 hours.

I'll let the pictures do the talking. BTW, I did this in my apartment complex'* parking lot. Having a garage is definately FTW! I still need to pull the bumpers and lights, and thats about it. We are leaving the dash. Gotta get some steelies ASAP.

lmao Its Good that the neighbors are nosey enough to report suspicious activity lol

Reminds me of my last condo I was renting from. I was doing allot of Audio upgrades all at once so I ripped the inteiror of my Eclipse out. The next morning I found a HUGE window sized Tow sticker from the condo office saying that on such and such a date the car will be removed from the property unless the owner called the office.

Needless to say, they thought it was stolen, stripped and dumped. All they had to do was their job and look in the book where I registered my vehicle when I moved in!!

Looks like an Acura Legend, I'm really surprised you're going through so many motors. There a really good car, along with the Vigor.


I like those rims.

Yep, it'* a Legend.

The 3.2 SOHC is known for bad headgaskets. When the headgaskets went the first time after I owned it, I could tell that the heads had already been milled once. After doing the headgaskets and doing a coolant flush twice, there was still oil leaking into the coolant, which I knew then that there was a microcrack in the block that was missed. About 3 weeks ago it overheated on me again, which = done for that engine.

Otherwise, the car itself is awesome. I loved the ride, how well it handled, how well it looked, etc...
