We beat an S2000 in an almost stock '67 Ford; the driver didn't seem to lulled in the fact that the truck was "all about rust and big noises." I drive a 72 GTO. **** yeah, it's loud. It's got a '95 Viper GT Red paint job. It sits real low... and looks damn good. When you're pushing exhaust through flowies, you make noise - that's called "high performance." What about rice rockets and there "noise?" Fucking farting everywhere. I have several Japanese friends - it's not them I don't like. It's the cars. And yes, I'm a beaner - so what the #$%# is your problem? You buy an S2000 to go fast - don't kid yourself. And you waste your money.
