Honda’s S660 concept. S2000 successor? Or the NSX we have been waiting for?

By Brian Brawley

What’s not to love about the Honda S2000? The little bombshell roadster born from Honda was anything but tame. It featured just over 240hp from its scant two liter mill, still holding one of the highest horsepower to liter ratio in a production car. Having a light 2,750 pound curb weight, X-bone frame construction, minimalist driver focused interior, and a screaming 9,000 RPM redline, it gave NSX levels of performance at a more affordable price to the general population. After 10 glorious years, Honda finally closed doors on production with no replacement in sight. With the NSX already dead, it seemed like Honda had closed the door on sports cars in general.

Have you ever dreamt of actually owning your dream car? What it would be like to walk out and see it sitting there ready for you to jump in and drive? This month, CSJ got the opportunity to interview up and coming drifter, Austin Kregle. He and his car impressed us so much that we decided he just had to be our March Ride of the Month.

When Austin got his license he decided he wanted to take up the sport of drifting. After researching extensively, he decided the 1995 Nissan 240SX was the car for him. After working hard, saving, and looking at Autotrader.com religiously for a year and a half, Kregle found his perfect car.

Nightmare in the morning

By: Amy Muser

original

Everyone has had this happen to them. You minding your own business just trying to get to work and bam! Suddenly becoming part of the worst possible situation. This nightmare starts with altercations to the speed. First to 25 MPH then to 15 MPH all of a sudden everything comes to a complete stop. All because someone in the front wanted to stop and smell the freshly paved blacktop. So you sit there, and five minutes rolls by no big deal right. Well then fifteen minutes roll, by then twenty, and by now you have started to slowly roll forward. Making some ground thinking it will be alright I’ll get there with time to spare still. Just trying to make the best of the situation [...]

Bird poop grinds my gears

By Nicole James

Every day when I park at work I park in a different place; sometimes in the front of the lot, sometimes the back, maybe to the far left or right, and in the middle of it all, occasionally.

When I go to my car to leave each day I see massive amounts of bird poop all over my car.  It looks like some bird had some crazy diarrhea explosion all over the hood, roof, and trunk of my car. I can’t tell if this is the work of one bird, or many. Each day I kick my tire with stilettos, throw my briefcase in the car, and grumble about the damn birds as I shake my fists at the sky. I’m sure I look like a crazy person.

Compliments

With the holidays officially over, we can finally get back to regular life and think about our goals for the New Year. I have decided I am going to get a new car for a daily, turn Marilyn into the ultimate track beast, and finish the show car so it can actually go to shows. For those of you who don’t know, I call my 05 Mustang Marilyn, and I also have a 1965 Mustang I am currently restoring, which will be…. Wait for it…. The show car!
