You're going to have to translate that from frontier gibberish to honest English. It's got to take you three times as long to write that crap as it would to actually compose properly. I know it takes three times longer to read it. Charmin' it ain't. Sorry, I said it, so there.

Junky,

My sincerest apologies for that self-righteous rant. Your writing style is obviously beloved on this site, as is the content, and if I offended anyone else with my classless comments, I apologize to them as well.

I know I have read a lot more than I have posted and he must be the hundredth person to rip on Javas typing skills lol. Anyway....

My S2K has not seen flight but I have found out how many times you spin when you lock up the diff around a corner in second when there is loose gravel on the road. Just didn't see it....

My second car was a 91 crx si, I felt that the S IMO was a replacement and a damn good one. Java, the people want to know... when and why did you start typing in a "foreign" language? I can read it just fine and enjoy your input on the forum, but so many people bitch about it. Squash this beef once and fer'all.

Well, I suppose speaking "Joisey" (as in NJ) is considered a foreign language. But getting back to the topic, I now have 11k miles on my 08 and feel like the engine is getting stronger and the gas mileage is better. Takes a while for these engines to break in.

One of the best streets yo get airborne is Filbert st. in San Francisco. It's a couple of streets over from that iconic twisty street, Lombard. I used to jump my Bug off of it for ***** and giggles. It's flat and then just drops out from under you. You end up skidding to the stop sign at the bottom of the hill. Just gotta make sure no cars are pulling out of the parking spots on the left. It's good to have a spotter. Street view doesn't do it justice, but if you pan to the bottom of the street and look back up, you can get a feel for it.
Here's Filbert:

driving the s2k makes me a better driver period. not just aggressive driving, but also just cruising. when driving other cars, easier to get a feel on connecting turns, how to utilize braking when entering turns, etc. being so connected to the road in the s2k makes you more aware of how to drive.

went to hawaii last week with wifey and another couple (the guy is a boxster owner). went from kona to hilo twice (lots of turns). man when he drove, it was rough. not smooth at all. when i drove, totally different story so says my wife.

Stewie'z alwayz been'a driver'z car.
Anybody can gedd'itt from point A'da point B (Okay. So there are alot of exceptionz whut can't even doo'datt.), but to truly make use'a whut Stewie hazz'da offer, you've godda pay attention'n learn to work with Stewie.
Which, by the way, is what I wuzz originally tryin'a point out when I started diss t'read. Somehow itt turned inda flyin' Stewiez.
Itt wuzz suppozed'da be alertin' youze guyz'da'da fack'datt we now had'a forum (A whole forum gang! You don't jus' godda use'diss t'read.) havin'a'doo wit' drivin'.
Jus' Drivin'.

('Course'yer buddy'z gonna be lackin'z'a driver LT. He choze Porch, dinn'ee?)

Wow, more a douche could you be?

Java, man you're on the frontier? Damn, I thought that was in Texas not in Jersey.

I always enjoy driving my Stewie. I drive it 104 miles per day with 104 smiles to go along with it. I drove to Killeen Texas (Home of 4th ID) today to take care of an airport project office and I "accidentally" hit 100+ blasting onto a deserted stretch of highway. I made it 150+ miles in just under two hours including stops
I am set to go past the 30k mile mark during the first year of ownership. I have been sideways more times than I can count, had zero close calls, and the top has been down far more than it has been up.

Actually the Yellow and Black "Bumble Bee" was my favorite version of 1969 Camaro.
The 1965 fastback Mustang in Springtime Yellow was a good choice with a BLack interior.
And I suppose in honor of Murph's odometer turning over another year today I will also become fond of the S in a Yellow hue.

K, you keep those pillows good and fluffed BOEEY!

And make sure they come with this accessory.

Hey, that aint no joke, I have found out that silver is the most commonly overlooked color of car. I think I need a red flag sticking up off this thing like a go cart.

Ahem,....... I know this is not the proper thread to introduce myself, as I just found this forum a week ago, and I don't even own my S2000 yet,........( I also had planned to refrain from posting until having such acquired), however I couldn't refrain from expressing an eye opening experience with Sir Java's style, deciphering, (assuming his), total control of phonetic prose!............WOW!

Genius, ............. sheer Genius!

Ain't that the truth! I have driven nothing but small cars since my first car! (vw rabbit1975... UT orange!
