NSX & S2000 Owners Start the New Year Right with a Big Meet

By -

Captured by an S2K-owning YouTuber, SoCal gathering proves it’s never too early or chilly to celebrate Honda performance.

It’s a cold time right now for most of us in the United States. The only things on our minds are the Super Bowl, finding the best recipes for the big watch party, and waiting for the warmth of spring to return so we can bring out our high-performance Hondas for some playtime.

Of course, there are a few brave souls out there who are more than willing to gather for a meet with tons of Hondas involved, like the one YouTuber Jael Nava attended earlier this month in Irvine, California.

“Today, we’re gonna be heading out towards Irvine, California, which is about an hour, and hour and a half away from San Diego… and we’re gonna be attending a very special meet,” Nava says. “While there are a lot of meets that take place throughout the year, this one is extra special because it takes place once a year, and it’s specific to S2000 and NSX owners alike.”

The meet gets off to a roaring start when The Man comes down on a few S2K owners who’ve parked their cars the “wrong” (a.k.a., cool) way. Thus, all of the owners simultaneously repark straight within the lines of their spaces.

Nava wisely lets the wide assortment of S2000s and NSXs do all the talking while walking through the big meet, beginning with a few time attack cars like the yellow and silver S2Ks above. He also happens upon a black S2K with Euro/JDM-style AP1 headlamp pods and custom rolled fenders.

Over on the NSX side, Nava notes that more than a few owners opt to swap in carbon fiber bits for their OEM counterparts, like the hood of the silver NSX above. Others eskew carbon for other options, like the hood of the yellow NSX, or a fresh set of aftermarket wheels such as those worn by the blue NSX.

It wasn’t all S2000s and NSXs at the meet, of course. There were a few Nissans, Toyotas, even a Ferrari gathered under the cloudy California sky. Thankfully, there was also a Civic Type R to add more Honda goodness to the tons already there.

“We saw some cool cars, talked to some cool people… It’s also really interesting to kind of see… what people’s personalities are like in relation to what their car looks like,” Nava says. “It really is interesting to see kind of how people’s personalities bleed over into how they maintain and how they execute their car, the parts they put on, and how they maintain… really, really interesting stuff.”
