Cracking car. I had a few MX5's and did think more than once about getting an S2000 as I also owned 3 Hondas so liked the brand. Their reputation as being a little tail happy on occasion possibly put me off. Great looking and rare car though with a lovely 250 bhp 2 litre VTEC 8)
Thanks, I’ve had it since new - 2003. Only once felt it was a bit loose on a corner, but I don’t drive it a lot, and, knowing its reputation, and having spun a Civic ESi one time, I do take special care. Honda build quality is legendary, and this engine is a beauty.

These are fantastic cars. When new they were much cheaper to buy and run than a Boxster. I test drove a demo one in metallic black a short time before they stopped selling them and it felt like driving a civilised road going racing car with its tiny short throw gear stick perfectly placed. Stupidly I didn't buy it as I had trouble getting all my golf gear into the boot :oops:

The VTEC engine is 1 of the most reliable ever - Honda have never had 1 fail and would only let them be put together in Japan in order to retain the reliability. It revs a little different to the 2litre VTEC in the same era Type R which was what I had but still goes really well.
Thanks, just got it back from the garage - was in for a service and MOT - the only work it needed was a new front number plate, and that’s only because it wasn’t a Honda part! The mechanic was drooling - there aren’t many of these about. It’s a pleasure to drive, and has plenty of torque even when when cruising at 70 in 6th.

My 1300 Mk3 Cortina, it’s not my daily drive but it certainly gets used. 0-60 in 20 seconds (with the wind behind me) and a cruising speed of 65!

Lovely. My dad had a 1972 “K” reg. It was a lime green met with black vinyl roof. A 2000 GXL auto. I used to spend ages starring at it from the kitchen window. It was the first car I really loved. Dad acquired it in 1975 and had to have it re-sprayed in 1977 as it was so rusty! He got rid in 1978 as it was costing too much in repairs. It had fabulous clocks on the centre consul that were angled to the driver if I recall?

Unfortunately most of them succumb to rust, just over 1.2 million were made and only about 1000 are left today and probably about half of that actually on the road. The sloping dash was very cool, mines a face lift car (73-76) and has the straight dash, more practical but has less of the cool factor.

Had mine cleaned today as looking to move it on, test drove a 65 plate Golf GTD earlier as well. Loved the car and wanted to buy but VW dealer wasn't interested in any movement on the price at all once I turned down all the extra warranty guff that added over £1k and that I don't want it on finance. Such a Shane but had to walk away.
