by a cold day
After all the fantasy vaporware concept illustrations of a new S2000 resembling the NSX (not my style), I really like this EV concept. I would totally get [a used, 12-year-old copy of] this car. Maybe in another 10 years they’ll do an 80's-retro version that I’ll like even more.
Score at Shop Rite last night. Joining my NSX are a 1990 Civic and matching Type-R, GT-S, ZL1, and FB RX-7.

Oh, my God... why didn’t they go for this design?! Minus the tent-peg soft top, this rear looks amazing. I just can’t love the production ND tail.
Wondering if I should apply for this. Whether I’d de-Kinja the Kinja, or get more fully Kinja’d myself
Yesterday, I replaced a very mundane part on the S2000 which had worn out. 100 billion Oppo points to whomever guesses the part...

but that doesn’t mean I can’t benefit from those who do.
XJ pulled up next to me at a light. The plate?
I just came back from the NJ Meadowlands, where Cadillac had a driving sales event very similar to the Miata one I did a while back. Unfortunately we’re having torrential rain here, and they shut down all the driving sessions. Good on them for at least trying though.
I’ve seen a red 993 in the same spot.
Like many of us, when I bought my then-12-year-old Honda S2000, I quickly came up with a long list of improvements, repairs, etc. that I wanted to do. At this point I also encountered the brick wall of reality in that I don’t have time or money to do all of these right now, or even in the next couple of years. I was…
2016 was my first full year of ownership of my S2000, and I clay barred it midway through the year. I was really impressed with how much it cleared up the paint. This year, my goal was to apply polish and try to clear up the damaged clear coat on the trunk and hood as much as possible. After a lot of hemming and…
The leather and aluminum on the S2000's shift knob has been scratched up since I got the car. I’m generally OK with patina and not super anal about these things, but the central location and the fact that it’s the first thing I see getting in has always bothered me.
