I’m getting the urge to stick a fart pipe on my car now
Wife’s friend stayed over for the weekend with her impressionable 8-year old son. He pointed wide-eyed at my S2000 so I took him for a quick spin - some freeway onramps and S-curves - then surprised him with an orange Hot Wheels S2000 as a memento before they left.
The wifey is seriously considering a new Mazda CX5 in Grand Touring trim (non-turbo FWD for max mpg). Thoughts?
Funnily enough, I bought something and she didn’t.
How is possible that has nobody posted this yet?

I like it more than the new hatch but of course that doesn’t matter because it’s not coming to the US.
Try staring at this - it’s the Oppo version of counting sheep.
Los Angeles near the Petersen Museum around 4 pm, silver AP1 with a JALOPNIK sticker on the wind deflector. You know who you are.
Did Apple start this nonsense of having someone standing on stage trying to single-handedly brainwash their audience? Only Jobs could pull that off and even he was pretty nauseating if you didn’t live within Apple’s reality distortion field.
I’m taking my mostly car-agnostic wife to the LA auto show and Radwood this weekend. Her Infiniti Q50 lease is up next year and she wants something with more personality that she would love “the way I love my S2000.” “It’s not love,” I replied, “it’s just indulging in a weird automotive fetish.”
“No, you get off my bed.”
Someone really loves themselves some vintage German schteel ...
YouTube recommended a video on cleaning S2000 soft top water drains and I figured I might as well do mine since I’ve never done it. Turns out someone had dropped/left a bunch of loose bolts and nuts in there. I can’t believe I’ve put up with the rattling for all these years ...
I can’t understand why someone would leave a car they cared about parked on the street long term. Besides this Merc, I’ve seen an S2000 and a vintage Alfa that were street parked suddenly appear with catastrophic damage and disappear permanently days later.
We live in a time when people around me are animatedly discussing “superchargers” and I really couldn’t care less.
