530k Milestone & Flagstaff Quick Drive

Took me long enough to get to 530k!

Friday, I drove the Legend to work and achieved a milestone on the way home from the office.  I took a few cell phone shots of the car just shortly after the roll-over.  They aren’t the best quality but you get the idea.

I have a few maintenance items to address before driving it to Los Angeles next month for NALM.  I might go ahead and have the spark plugs changed (last replaced at 434,000).  There’s also a leaking inner CV boot on the passenger side, and I’ve been told the A/C lines at the compressor are leaking, though the system still somehow blows ice cold air.

These were taken just east of Phoenix on the Beeline Highway near the Saguaro Lake turnoff.

Yesterday, I escaped the Phoenix heat for a few hours and met up with some friends in Flagstaff, Arizona.  It’s only about a 150-mile drive each way via I-17 so I was easily able to get up and back comfortably over the course of the day.  It sure was great to spend some time in “only” 90 degree temperatures as opposed to the 110 degrees at my house.

The only photos I grabbed were at Exit 317:  Fox Ranch Road.

Perfect day for a drive.

Think anyone will mind if I park the car there?  I was a rebel for a few seconds.

I thought it would be fun to share a few “spy shots” that friends have sent me over the last couple of weeks since I recently started saving them.  My friends know how Legend-crazy I am, so I frequently get text messages of random sightings from the road.

  1. Run, Forrest, Ru…I mean…Drive, Tyson, Drive! Congrats on the achievement! I bet that clutch will hang in for quite a while longer. Not too many Legends around here to send any “spy shots,” but I will keep an eye out. East Coast didn’t yield too many either. Don’t you dare think of selling either of yours…they are getting more and more scarce! 🙂

    • You’ve contributed to the spy shot collection before! I recall a decently clean red first generation Legend coupe that you spotted on campus a couple of months ago. Keep your eyes and ears open! They’re out there 🙂

  2. I took a picture of a G1 in front of me today on the way home from work I just forgot to send it to you!!
