Cool I got lost on the way to buy an s2000

Hello everyone my name is J or beard or whatever seems to work with my nonsensical username.

I didn't actually get lost on the way to buy an s2000, but I have driven both.. and well something about being the underdog just made me hand my money over to a stranger in the middle of nowhere in PA. That stranger sold me my current miata, a black NA8 with a Black and Tan mix that my local bartender can't seem to match. The current plan is/was, it's always changing, bottom line make s2000 owners question the extra 10 grand they paid for their car. So please stand by as I travel down one of the most traveled roads with my miata.

I was torn between the two and the money made the decision for me. I still think the s2000 looks great and is tons of fun.

Welcome aboard Bearded one! (I secretly drool over s2ks too) I'm on miata #4 now and I regret nothing! Keep rocking man!

Also show some photos of that roadster!

Stock for stock the s2000 is the better car but for the money an S2000 would cost you can get an NA8 (as you did) and do some quality modifications. Welcome to CR, can't wait to see pics of your car.

Welcome. I went from a Miata to s2k. I miss the S2k for its fit, finish, and build quality, but I definitely like the lesser cost of modding another miata I just picked up.
