Atlanta, GA new s2000 owner

We purchased our s2000 3/28/2013. wow are we having fun.

we have found the secret compartment. the fuel door was a fun one..

I must admit I am (or was) a Ford girl...love my Mustang GT, and nothing beats my Ford F250 diesel but DANG have I been missing out on this one. And lets not forget my Jeep wrangler but...

This car is HOT!! incredible to drive!!

If I would have known I would have bought one of these in 2000.

We have a White 2000 S2000, Red interior, NO MODS!! Loving the color white made this one a hard find but we did. 61,000 miles.

My question...Is there a club in or around Atlanta, GA?

Zimmer, welcome. I believe that BB here on this board is from Georgia and should be along shortly to say hello.

Stock is where it is at and where it should stay, for the most part. I suggest taking it slow and getting to leard how these cars handle as they can be tricky for folks not familiar with AP1's handling.

Get to know your car, change all of the fluids and keep an eye on your tires. It's quite a bit different than the f250!!!!!

Since you already found the SC, Switchblade won't have much to say!

Welcome again and be safe!

Firstly, congratulations and welcome.

As to your inquiry about a club, yes there is a pretty active group in Atlanta.

They predominantly function through the S2000 Club of America which is the oldest and only OEM recognized S2000 club. They are at www.S2KCA.com.

You can find the Atlanta chapter here:

I'm going to be in Atlanta on the 15th and will be meeting with one the club's more active local members, Tony Bell.

If I have time while I'm there, I may try to make on of their "coffee and cars" meets.

I can validate that from a car guy who does not own an S2000. I asked a friend to drive my car up to King Motorsports in WI which is about 80 miles from my house while I drove my Crosstour to bring parts and provide a return ride. We did this just after we returned from the Amelia Island Concours.

He owns 2-Porsche, 2-Lotus (Exige and Elise S) and some other stuff. He's also an active participant in the Pebble Beach Concours.

Having established his credentials as a car guy, here's what he said after the 80 mile drive over back roads to New Berlin, WI. "Wow, that is a pure driver's car. Thanks."

So, there he is thanking me for having had him drive my car to a shop 80 miles away. I was quite pleased at that.

I was also surprised at how nimble the Crosstour can be.
