As some (most) of you guys know, I bought an S2000 a few weeks ago. Between the dog and the mountain bikes, I’ve been driving the truck a LOT, so it made no sense to have a Mazda3 as a “weekend car”. I wanted a coupe, rather then a convertible, but after driving an S2000, I was sold. I took care of the coupe part with the hardtop.
The car is just awesome. It’s a go kart for the street. Loud, rough, and insta-responding to inputs. Just what I wanted. It has even given me an ever so slight itch to try autox again, just because it’s so much fun to drive. Maybe if I have a totally free weekend and there happens to be an event. We’ll see. In the meantime, I’ll take those slight detours so I can take that fun cloverleaf or that fun turn. Maybe even take it up to the mountains to play.
Robb and Joe and myself went out around Atlanta yesterday to take some pics of the cars (Robb also got himself a new ride, a 2011 WRX) We got kicked out of every spot we went to, which was funny, and had a great time. It was really cool to see a “real” photographer work. Joe has such an eye for this stuff, that it’s uncanny. Super cool.
We started at the rail yard, and made our way down to the tracks. Then we hit up the SCAD parking deck as there is a great view of downtown during the sunset. Finally we hit a bridge over downtown, but not having a tripod I didn’t get any good night shots. I know Robb and Joe did.
