Josh Sauers loved the S2000 platform long before he bought one. So when a completely stock one popped up at a local dealership, he knew he had to have it. The same day it landed on the lot, Sauers picked it up. Influenced by cars with wild camber and aggressive stance, he got to work putting his own twist on the 2003 Honda S2000.

FAVORITE MODIFICATION:
"The air ride system. It makes driving the car much more enjoyable. People assume just because the car has some excessive camber that it's "undrivable" but that's definitely not the case. I love when people come up and ask me "how do you drive that thing!?""
