About Our Company

Our History

Legacy Automotive Network began taking shape in 2000, when Dealer Principal Edward Hyde opened Legacy Nissan in London, Ky. Today, the network includes a total of six businesses and employs more than 160 people in London and neighboring city, Corbin.

In the years following the establishment of Legacy Nissan, Edward grew the business's sales volume and added Legacy Detail & Tint and Legacy Collision Center, both in London. In 2016, the network gained two new dealerships in Corbin: Legacy Ford Lincoln and Legacy Chevrolet, Buick, GMC. Legacy Auto Parts, the newest business, celebrated its grand opening in London in March, 2018.

Edward is a true owner/operator who spends each day managing staff and cultivating business relationships. Together with his wife, Karen, who serves as controller, Edward often travels to represent Legacy at various industry-specific events. Notably for Nissan, Edward serves on both the National and Regional Dealer Advisory Boards. Due to Edward and Karen's efforts and strong team work, Legacy Nissan has been nationally recognized for excellence in sales, service and customer loyalty.
