When I turned 16, I was given a car to drive from my parents. It was a 1985 Volvo 240.
This car was not as stylish, nor close to as powerful as I wanted at the time, but I made
do with it. Over the first summer with the Volvo, I worked hard at a golf course to save
money for a new car. The work was intense, but in the end it all paid off when my parents
finally agreed to sell the Volvo. Using the money from selling the Volvo, the money that I
had made working, and a little that my parents threw in, we began looking for cars. I had
my hart set on an Acura Integra. I test drove many of cars, some I like and most I
didnt, like the millions of Saturns that my parents made me test drive. As the time
went on, it became increasingly harder to find a car within my specific list of needs. But
it was actually the Saturn that helped me find the Legend.
While at a Saturn dealer, I saw a Acura Legend in the used car area. My parents and I
thought it would be outrageously out of our price range. The next day I called the dealer
and spoke with someone to give me a price quote. To my surprise, it was priced
considerably lower that everyone had expected. I went there with my dad, and test drove it
a couple of times. I loved the ride, and when coupled with the power of the 2.7L V6 under
the hood, it was a match made in heaven. A couple days later we were back there signing
the papers. It worked out for everyone.
While my first idea was to tune the car to be a sporty performer, my plans have changed
slightly. I have learned quite a bit about the audio world and am now pursuing a few audio
hook ups. In addition I have been working with the lighting setup as well, adding PIAA
Super Whites and planning on a stock foglight bulb change. Dont worry though, I still have
performace in mind, and will continue to keep upgrading where I can.
