    At what point are you going to realize, it's not "just a Focus"?

    If only it were real.... It'd be the slowest Corvette produced in quite some time.

    I'd take it to a Corvette meet just to see how long before I'm lynched.

    Yeah, I really hate it when someone makes a car their own.

    You feel bad because it makes all the other S2000s sad about their inadequacy?

    A HUGE part of the joy of driving an S2000 is that F22.

    Is it bad that I'd rather have the F20 over an F22 just because that extra 1000 RPM is so much fun?

    I love revs. Too bad revs cost more money than displacement.

    No, it isn't bad. All I know is that the two biggest Honda fans I am friends with both sold their S2000s. They are great cars for short periods, but ownership was not quite as satisfying as either of them thought it would be. An S2000 is kind of like dating a slutty chick: sure, it is a thrill at first, but it isn't really the best recipe for a good, long-term relationship.

    A slutty, skinny chick. That's why you ditch it for some boobs and hips and pick up a slightly used 997.

    I think i'd have to disagree with the above. I believe an S2000 can be a fantastic long term, multi-purpose vehicle. One of the bigger complaints is cabin room, but by ditching the big and heavy seats and purchasing a fastback hardtop in lieu of the power cloth top, i think it would be perfect for any occasion. The F22 really makes it DD friendly and, though still lacking a bit of torque, should be incredibly fun yet maintain civility when not above 6k rpm. Just my .02 since i am a huge high revving FR roadster fan.
