Flashback – Articles From the Past
Over the past weekend we received a PM from a member who short-listed their favorite articles and asked us if we could publish them. Seeing how these articles are representative of the community and also considering that we are heading into the holiday season, we felt it would be appropriate to republish links to these articles. These range from community events to praise for the car and the impact S2KI has on our daily work lives or otherwise. Click through and let us know what you think of these articles. It is our hope that you will enjoy reading them.

A Match Made on The Dragon – Matches are made in heaven, but if you are a car nut then you will move heaven and earth or at the very least drive across a significant span of asphalt, to the Tail of The Dragon, to create a special memory for you and your significant other. Our member toekneeg hit upon the idea of popping the question to his soul-mate while participating in one of the community’s events on the Dragon and enlisted the help of fellow-members as well. Suffice it to say that even Hollywood would not be able to script a better scene.

There is no doubt that we drive something special.
