Simple Driver: 1990 Acura Legend

This next car is a hot one -- a clean, good running, rust free, medium mile example of an early 90s classic with a smooth Honda V6 that didn't push the boundaries of technology, but eased next to the boundary with a whimsical smile on its face.  And the price on this one is great...naturally it comes with the slushbox auto (a manual gearbox version would probably have been driven more!)...but this seems like a perfect first car for a kid or cheap daily driver.  Find this 1990 Acura Legend V6 offered for $3750 in SF Bay Area, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

  1. I've owned two of them for many years, and they're great cars. However, dealer support disappeared years ago, and most parts are now comprised of unobtanium. Worst yet, it's getting pretty rare around here to find one in a boneyard.

    1. Sad to hear parts are hard to come by. I had been considering one of these as a weekend car. Still love how cool yet subtle these are.

    2. They're great cars; very refined, yet fun to drive. Both of mine were M/T, and that made it even better. It would work for the purpose you envision, as they're ultra-reliable; but I wouldn't buy an A/T and I wouldn't put a whole lot of money in it because you're one significant fender-bender away from game over.

  2. So that's what they look like when they have not rusted from the road up.... Nice!

  3. Had a 5 speed one years ago. Was a great car to drive.. like a prelude for adults

  4. I had a 1990 LS coupe with the 2.7L and a 5-speed. Bought it in 1995 I think, after my Milano went up in flames. After the Milano it seemed like a really big car, but it was oh so nice on the road. Not as light and tossable as the Milano but a superb highway cruiser. I would gladly drive it again...but probably not with an automatic.

  5. Nice looking car. Bring back small grills!
