What defines a Legend? Discuss amongst yourselves.
I’m lucky to be part of an active local chapter of NSX owners and enthusiasts. On Sunday afternoon, member Eric hosted several of us for a backyard BBQ at his home in central Phoenix. When I arrived, his neighbor was outside on the sidewalk already taking pictures of the lineup. Eric grilled up burgers, chicken, and hot dogs for his guests. We also explored his awesome house and garage. While only having 2 bedrooms, the historic 1950s home accommodates 5 or 6 cars, plus has a huge backyard with an RV gate. Eric definitely has his priorities in order!
Keeping Eric’s “Formula Red” 1991 NSX company in the garage is an Olds Cutlass convertible, a Kharmann Ghia, several motorcycles and a vast collection of memorabilia. The ceiling was lined with license plates. And the centerpiece was a vintage two-seater car-racing game called Battle Gear (circa 1998) which featured a red NSX and a white Integra. I raced Mike (beat him) and Westin (lost to him) and had a blast doing it. Enjoy a few photos from our little get-together.
Welcoming us to the home.
Eric’s Great Dane kept an eye on everyone.
A living room with motorcycles in it? Excellent.

Westin’s 1995 Berlina Black with chrome wheels
Alan’s car (white) is actually black. The white you see there is a wrap.
In some other recent events: Last Friday, I had to shuffle the cars around the house so I thought it would be interesting to film the start-up of each. Only the 1993 L started up on the first crank.
Believe it or not, there’s a group of about 600 people on Facebook called “Camrys with Dented Bumpers.” I captured this one on my way out of the neighborhood the other day.
Also, I finally had the chance to (temporarily) install my Barrett-Jackson plate on my Legend GS. Top car is my friend Chris Miller’s in Baltimore, bottom car is mine. Both are 1994 6-speeds.
Speaking of plates, a couple of months ago I was looking on the Arizona DMV site and discovered that this plate was available:
Well, today I discovered that my friend Chris from Tucson ended up grabbing it!
Hope everyone is having a great week!
