Yep.

The garages in my apartment complex used to not have doors on them. Aparantly, people used to steal cars, bring them to this complex and pull them in the bays and strip them.

That chassis/shell looks PRISTINE except for a spot or two of rust (maybe the pix help). Hell a lot of 96ish+ Accords have rear 1/4 panel rust all over.

in my career as an auto salvage dismantler i have had the oppritunity to work on alot of cars, literally from all corners of the globe. (not many aussie cars though...)

anyway. of all the cars i've ever had to work on the Vigor was the most pathetic sack of crap i ever put a wrench to. seriously the hardest vehicle i've ever worked on. i would give anything to look in that engineer'* wastepaper basket. i want to see what designs that guy threw away before settling on this miserable design.

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...
I had an '86 Acura Legend once, and the engine block cracked on me. I was done with them after that. I give cars one chance....and one chance only.

So far, I've tried '85+ Chevy, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Toyota, Acura (same as Honda, I know, but one would think higher class ), and Pontiac, and Pontiac was the only one I didn't kick to the curb.

Well, the '71 Ford was really reliable, too, but I built 'er up. She had a Cleveland block.

Anyway, that'* hilarious! I would have had a fit if they rolled up on me like that AGAIN! Ok, ok, so in the past they had good reason too...BUT ALL THAT'* BEHIND ME NOW!!!
