Well, I just replaced my shabby OEM floor mats in my 2000, Honda S2000 with 61,000 miles. They are beautiful black with red embroidered S2000 logos.
The S2000 is noticeably quicker now, and more importantly, the sound quality of the Alpine stereo has significantly improved.
9000 RPM is fun.
pictures?? of the car not floor mats
I find my car system sounds better when my floor mats are caked with mud & snow.
Sir Quack! Hello!
Is there a free hosting service you know of?
Those pictures go back a way. Just washed the S2000. Looks the same. I will try to get some more pictures up.
Its -238 degrees Fahrenheit here today. I think I ought to come down there and show you how to drive that beauty.
Washed the good old girl.
Yes, that's a good idea!
But, you have to be able to do the dance. Heel toe, rev matching, sequential downshifts so you don't accidentally mechanically over drive it and blow the engine.
You're welcome to come on down. It was a very chilly 60 degrees F today. We are having a bitter winter.
New ride in background. 2020 Acura RLX Hybrid Advance. They can't give them away. Good car.
Is that not the most beautiful solid state amp ever!
Phil, may I please have that amp?
And the rug under the car, please.
I wish I had that amp. I just oggle pictures. Audio porn.
The rug, sure! Come on down and it's yours!
I'll throw a tomahawk steak on the grill for you too!
Awesome pics, I always loved the looks of the S2000.
Yes, sir Quack. It's a good looking car. Has a bit of the hammerhead going for it. Needs more torque down low and another 100 HP although between 6000 and 9000 rpm it's white hot.
Of course, I can't think of a car that doesn't need another 100 HP.
If my Mazda had 100 more horses, it would be leaving chunks of its rusted body behind.
Mazda saved the roadster from under-powered British efforts which would not start if it was damp out (Lucas electrics, Prince of Darkness). The Miata, a near perfect, simple, virtuous 2 seater.
Wish I still had my Datsun 280ZX
Oh yes, Mr. Quack, the Miata ... a light weight roadster, the 280Z, beefy brawn. Love 'em. Was yours sinister black?
By the way, as to your avatar:
Open the pod bay door Hal.
I wish that I still had my 1971 240Z.
I wish I had my 1978 Ford LTD II. I'd use it as a target for archery, axe and knife throwing.
Hey Phil, I have to ask - you may have covered this in our time together (18 years!) on this board - you seem to like the super tweeter, as you have equipped many of the speakers in your photo album with them.
What is up with that?
Mine was a 1981 280ZX Silver Manual transmission, loved thosed inline 6 cylinders. Had louvers on the back window from JC Whitney catalog.
Rarely see to many Datsun's here on the west coast anymore aside from the few collectors whom baby theirs. They've mostly rusted out from our constant wetness.
I'm a tweeker, can't help myself. When Radio Shack closed out their super tweeters, I bought all the local stock. I upgraded the caps with Solens which cost more than the blow-out price for the tweeters.
I used them with my M80s, M22s, and Klipsch Fortes. I think they helped. My dog could hear them. I decided not to use them with the Harbeths or the LFR1100 Actives.
The super tweeters came with a frequency plot (don't know if it bore any relation to the actual output) which was pretty flat up to 50 kHz. I don't think I can hear much over 12 kHz. Some say it helps with the harmonics in the audible range. I don't know.
Sir Quack, if you're not shifting, you're not driving.
Love in-line DOHC 6s.
