Anybody remember RedRover?
Dan lives locally to me now I was working at the dealership at the time he had the roadworthy certificate done. Also had the chance to meet the new owner. I think he's floating around on the boards somewhere too. Believe RR is in a Subaru nowadays.
Do you remember the username for the new owner?

Quite a few of us are retired (me longtime). I still hear from BillyBlue occasionally - he's still got his blue S2000

Time to time I do check in on S2ki, most day to day chatter happens on Facebook pages. AUS S2k and for most of us in SEQld we have a group page, S2000 SEQ owners.
I've pretty well garaged and do 3-5k Km''s in the queen these days.



Happy to see you've still got it

Can you recommend any Facebook Groups I should join? Starting to miss you lot. No where near as fun as the old boards. It's very hard to find posted content without scrolling throughout years of crap.
Gorg should be joining you into FB group as I write, Muz should be chiming in soon.

Wow it has been ages since I've been on here! Actually earlier this week was looking up s2000s on carsales, so hard to find an unmolested version.... And even harder to find a white (red seats) one..... Ahhhh one day!!
Current ride is a 2008 blue nissan navara. Where or where did my life take a turn for the worse. Lol!

Ps: thanks Mel s2o0o for the heads up!

I'm not on the list, but, "Hullo!"

I didn't know about Muz! Hope things are on the up and up for him.
Hiya wilch! Sorry I forgot you, but your posts still ring a bell from years back. Hope alls been well.

Another few I forgot:
Easton Chang - I think he's still working in Auto photography.
StRAWBeRI - Ended up marrying Vuey (met through S2KI) and have now made a bebe. Very cute
Heys

Easton is very much a pro photographer!! Travels the world and has an amazing portfolio. I stalk him on Facebook.

I don't think he ever ended up in an s2k. Last time I caught up with him he still had his Smart Roadster. That was ages ago though.

Hey crew

brings back so many memories seeing some of the names on the list !

I cant claim "OG" status, but i was very happy to be part of the growth of S2ki from 2005-2009 ? Managed to be involved in event from both Sydney and Melbourne ! i even managed to marry one of the S2KI members

we sold Strawberi's car back in 2009.... and in 2013 bought it back ! what are the odds of that ! Blessed to have met so many people from this forum.

some events i was involved in over the years .....

Im a long time lurker, so know the names though nobody knows me.

Still prefer this place over that fb page, everyday someone asks which oil is best and you cant even tell them to f***ing use the search.

Tbh the Facebook Aus S2k community, are just like you and I, search is for research, for that S2ki and Google are my best friends.
The posts though sometimes may be newbie, getting the right set of tyres or working out which wire goes where the owners want up to date and current info and access. Let's face it, what's in "search" may not be the best option at the time. My experience is that there is always a helping hand instantly in the feedback posts, that are current to the circumstances. Give it some time, lurk on the FB page and I bet you'll see the FB community in a different perspective. I like the speed that threads and posts move, reminds me much how S2ki was in its hey day. Btw most of the FB members do still have S2ki open in our browsers.

Glad to hear he's on the mend

Hey hey, I'm still kicking around, still have my S2K and still love it like the day I bought it. It will be 10 years ownership in Nov and she still runs strong and looks great in pretty much immaculate condition still.
