But, how would'juh feel if yuh never experienced whut li'l Stewie could do until . . . . after yuh ain't godd'er no'mo.

I was out for a similar cruise around 7:30 this morning, and I saw the same thing you're talkin about. Ice sheets, ice sheets, ice sheets, one after another!

Catching some of the movie Titanic on TV last night, I proceeded with caution (after all, the temp gauge was reading a balmy 26 degrees).

Wish that old Capt'n had done the same.

My S is very near the top of my list of things which I am very lucky to have in my life. I am an all time pessimist and see the decline and fall of "Western Civilization" just beyond the horizon. US oil production topped out in the 70's, world oil production topped out around '08 or so. We may be living at the absolute pinnacle of affluence and driving a near perfect machine at will. I'll be driving it to Canada as soon as the first palm tree is reported growing healthily there. In the mean time it's in the garage- 5 days of snow here- my skis are due for one last wax.

If I only got to jump into my S, turn the key, push the button and hear that motor jump into action, I'd consider myself a blessed man, let alone actually being able to drive it!

This is one of the finest pieces of machinery that I've ever driven. It's simplicity makes it even more desirable! Dated???????????? Maybe? Classy??????????? Hell yeah!!!!!

Great thread JJ and count me in!

The styling is timeless. It'll still look current in 20+ years.

I'm not enthralled with the styling of the S.....at least it's reserved.....I still am not in love with the yellow, but in a car this small, I figure it is a safety enhancement.

Fortunately, all the magic happens from behind the wheel. It's been a great dd, and it do all they say it do.

I will probably keep this car for the rest of my life. Im only 22 and have had the car since I was 18. Im in for the long haul.

I dont car if it isnt the fasted, the best handling, or the nicest looking. I love it and thats all that matters.

Nothing sticks to the road like s2ewie. I dont get why people think shes not fast either. Once vtec kicks in shes as fast as most.

I plan on keeping Stewie for a while as well. I was going to take mine out yesterday but didn't because of ice on the roads.

ain't much more fun to be had, if you're a drivin' fool, than to settle into the cockpit of an S2000 and hit the open road. some people aren't drivers and they just don't get it. so be it.

top down, wind swirlin', motor growlin', g-forces actin'--you and the pavement with a fine machine at your command. it's transformin'.

i know what i got. i'm not often thinkin' about it. it does cross my mind sometimes but mostly i'm just enjoyin' it.

keep it tween the lines and check the rear-view often.
