Did anyone see this comment in there??


ALTA_Adam 67I sold this car just a few months ago and felt it was going into a collection and I’d never have to kick myself for selling.

Now with the internet rubbing it in my face I’m forced to watch it changes hands for the third time in as many months. But it is SO exciting to see so much enthusiasm for this S2K!

I bought the car from Hillside Honda nearly three years ago. After several weeks of anticipation it finally arrived. Elation immediately switched to disappointment when I inspected the car.

They had originally claimed that the car had been stored by the dealership owner for many years. It turned out that the car has actually been left in the showroom and I can only assume hundreds of people had sat in it. The door sills were both worn, the shifter tattered and holes are present in the seat surfaces.

The front bumper had a deep scar in the paint, and the paint overall had tons of minor scratches (especially on the rockers).

Additionally they had falsely claimed the car had never had the warranty punched. Also not true.

Thankfully, the dealership (after months of arguing) was willing and able to source the seat covers and interior bits. But wasn’t willing to budge on helping with the paint. They were also miraculously able to get the OEM Honda warranty reinstated.

But I was still bummed and let the car sit in my garage for years after only driving it a handful of times.

I ended up buying an AP1 with 10k miles from the original owner, including hardtop, and have driven it a LOT. The black one was only going to gather dust in the back of my car barn and when Graham found out about the car he snapped it up! Apparently he changed his mind and is going to enjoy his AP1 instead!

I believe (hope) that all of the cosmetics have been addressed as it was a shame that a 90 mile car didn’t look like it!

I hope @luigit wins and drives the car as it was intended! Having it sit for ten years or more without gaining any more miles will be a shame!

Wow sorry for the weird formatting. Looks like this one isn't as perfect as it looks in pics.

Wow - why do dealers have to screw things up? That explains the replacement upholstery.

Yup I thought this was the car that had been posted several times here that was sitting at a dealership. I think they even had it listed for sale but like that post says the owner of the dealer had no interest in selling it and would pretty much ignore people. Crazy that it is going for that kind of money given that the general public had access to sit in it and touch it. I sure as hell wouldn't buy it with the intention of driving it when you can find very low mile example for far less money. Not even an interesting color either inside or outside.
