Its hard to stand out in the car scene, it seems like everyone just follows the same fads and it gets pretty old. But thankfully, there are people like Nicholas who build their car to please themselves not everyone else.

Nicholas said “I have always loved cars ever since i was a kid. I was a big f1 fan, i have owned and enjoyed a few nice cars like a BMW e46 and an sl500, but I have never really been “into” cars until i purchased my s2000. That’s when I became more hands-on with modifying my car and understanding the ins and outs of cars better, and enjoyed it as a car-enthusiast.”

“I found out about this car when i was in college, it was my roommate’s dream car. 6-7 years ago one of my friend’s friend had one, and I thought it was cool. But I felt it was too small for me as i’m 6’1, then my best buddy bought one and we went on a trip to the tail of the dragon. the moment I started driving it, I knew i had to own one for sure.”

His future plans for his S2k include a J’s racing type 2 wing, either kwv3 or eibach coilovers with umbrella vrh lift kits, BBK, and a wasp composite track splitter. Also possibly a spoon hardtop, only a possibility because he loves to drive with the top down so much.

Everything about the car just works so well together, it just looks complete. My favorite thing about the car is that its 100% functional (and starting this coming season he will be taking it out to track days whenever possible) yet could still take trophies at shows without any problem.

He had quite the journey trying to find an S2000, he said “I failed on three previous attempts on getting an s2k, I missed all of them by a day. The worst one was when I was taking an overnight bus to memphis with cash in my pocket to buy the car. It was very nerve wrecking to begin with, and I ended up being heart broken because the car was sold the morning i got there. I can’t blame seller though, as i refused to pay the deposit before checking out the car. Another time, I was flying out to Dallas for one,  again I didn’t pay deposit and the car was sold the day before i flew there and the flight ticket went to waste. Finally, I found my car. it was posted on craigslist literally 5 minutes before i contacted the seller, and I ended up buying it within the hour it was posted.”
