It’s very, very good to be Ludacris.

Acura was excited to reveal two vehicles from two very different times, a 1993 Legend sedan and 2016 ILX. The much loved and in badly need of repair 1993 Legend is owned by ATL rapper/actor/entrepreneur, Ludacris. The brand spanking new 2016 ILX was customized by the crew at Galpin Auto Sports. In the words of Ludacris: “Hell, yeah!” Acura Vice President and General Manager, Jon Ikeda and Acura Global Creative Director, Dave Marek, explain the thought process and significance of both builds.

Aaron Gaghagen is a veteran video editor and longtime Honda enthusiast. All told, he’s owned seven of them, and has enjoyed every single minute of wrenching on every single one. Except for that automatic one. That was probably a mistake. In 2010 Aaron teamed up with Brian Gillespie who along with another partner launched Nacho Speed Garage, a venture that capitalized on Aaron’s video expertise to do its part in entertaining and educating the Honda masses. Nacho Speed Garage took everything to the next level. Instead of reading magazines and cruising forums for content, Aaron and Brian were generating it themselves. The demise of Honda Tuning magazine in 2014 was the impetus for Aaron to do something even more impactful, though, which led to the creation of VTEC Academy and aims to carry that Honda torch forward in the same spirt of not just Honda Tuning but Nacho Speed Garage.
