Never set out to be the same as someone else, Differentiate and Dominate. Your car is your reflection in a mirror.

2008 Honda S2000 CR

My name is Matt and I am from the Bay Area, California. I have been into cars since I was little as my dad always had Camaro’s and Corvettes. I saw the Fast and the Furious when I was 10 years old and have been a fan of Japanese sports cars since then. My favorite car when I was a little kid was the MKIV Supra and it still is today. I chose the S2000 because I was working for Honda at the time and took one for a test drive. I absolutely fell in love with the handling, gear box and beautiful styling. There just happened to be 1 black CR in the showroom and that’s the one I chose. Here we are 10 years later and she is still my baby. I built the car for show and track functionality. It makes 356 WHP at 13Lbs on the HKS supercharger. I chose the black and gold theme because my family is from Pittsburgh and I grew up a huge Steelers fan. Hence, Black and Gold. I love the Industry from large shows, to racing events, to small local meets. I try and do it all. If I’m not doing car related stuff in my free time, I’m most likely playing baseball or trying to see new places in the world. Thank you for reading my bio and I always enjoy meeting new people in the scene so never hesitate to say what’s up!
