I don't know how you fit in an NSX, I couldn't straighten my neck. I always liked them but from a distance.
service will be more interesting.. it's a dry sump so oil changes will be different but I think still 8 qts.

now we just need to wait 8-10 weeks of rit to warm up enough to drive it.

With the targa top on, the button on the top of my cap just touches the headliner. I am 5' 11', just barely short enough to fit. Let's not talk about other dimensions! Glad the seat and steering wheel are adjustable.

Oh, I would love to see the Merc in person.

Features

  • This kit includes (12) 90-degree brackets, (21) 120-degree brackets, (30) 30-degree brackets, (41) T brackets, step by step Instructions, and lumber cut list.
  • Images are representations of a completed structure - bracket kit only - lumber not included!
Yeah, construction is expensive today. Those brackets eliminate the need to make any angle cuts. You buy the lumber and just cut to length. The brackets make the angles for you.

I toyed with making a shed/garage. but we won't be here long enough to make it worthwhile.
"if" it is sitting on blocks without a foundation it is a temp structure and doesn't contribute to the value of the property. i.e. it's non-taxable.
It also isn't inspectable. if I hung lumber off of the house those bets are off.

Jer,

My son works as a tech at Wagner Kia. He just took a picture (below) of your car on the lot as he saw it today! It's definitely out there for sale! Congrats on the new arrival. You sure kept that puppy nice, Jer!

Patty, sorry, I just saw this...

Sadly, my S ("Nebuchadnezzar") was more than dirty... it had major rust damage after being driven daily through 13 New England winter and almost 200K mi.

The 2010 Miata that replaced it is no comparison... BUT, it is a nice car in its own right. It is, sadly, not a great winter car primarily because it has an open diff. I may address that in time with a replacement, but for now I keep it off the road if there's anything even remotely white or black (ice) on them.

A little ironic coincidence... a few months ago I gave Neb to my son, who is currently in the process of grafting some aftermarket body panels on it and restoring it. He is the one I just mentioned to Jerry that works at the dealership that Jerry sold his car to (Wagner). My son sent me that picture above, and I immediately knew whose car it was. Funny, small world of S2000s! Around here, there are scarce few Suzuka Blues running around, especially AP1s

By the way, best wishes

[edit: for the record, this is just one of the rusted out spots on Neb that my son is fixing :] Yeah, this is cringeworthy.

Here is the embarrassment of riches at casa Chaz after I brought the Miata home (cross-country journey). Short-lived, as the S went to my son very shortly after this picture.

I'm not sure it will ever see the sales floor.
The challenge is the garage is about 1/4 the size I'd like it to be. you know, just saying....
Could you stack them?
