S2000 CR Club Racer Edition CR stands for "club racer," conjuring up the good old days when guys drove their sports cars to the track, raced them, and then, if the racing gods were smiling, drove them home again

So, I'm not new nor a new owner here.... However I am new to owning a CR.

Here she is: 2008 Apex Blue delete, modded. #333.

Also pictured are my 2 other s2000s. Both MY2000, AP1. One I've owned since new, the other for ten years that I built for my wife.

Already started to make the CR my own. Swapped out the RPF1s for a set of Ce28n I have. Ultimately, I'll be restoring this car back to its OE glory.

I'm planning on de-modding it. I will be taking it all back to stock/OE restoration and owning it like my white was supposed to be. The white one started life as a Berlina black and bought it in Feb. 2000. That car for the first 1.5 years only came out every 3rd Sunday between May 25th and Oct 13th, and only iff there was no cloud in the sky. It was supposed to be my collector....but alas, I drove it, modded it, drove it some more, a couple of engine swaps and enjoyed every moment of it.

It's dialed in just how I want it and prefer driving that while the CR will be my "every 3rd Sunday" car. Truth be told, I'm not sure how long I'll get to own the car. Bought and picked up this car while my wife was out of town. She came home to a surprise. 6 cars in the driveway, only 2 drivers,.... 3 cars are s2ks. She's not very happy.

That ABP CR was a good deal, looks great with those CEs! What are the specs on them?

Congratulations and welcome to the group! Looks great with the CE's. Looking forward to your restoration; I do miss "build / de-mod" threads.

Nice CR! I would have loved to have bought that car. I'll keep on the lookout for the part-out thread. I may be interested in the shock setup.

Awesome, and great to see an S2ki OG in the CR family.
