Ec­cen­tric Un­cle Tim’s buy of the week

IF you want to go fast, so the say­ing goes, buy a mo­tor­bike. But if you want to go fast with­out surgery, buy a car from a com­pany that be­gan with mo­tor­bikes.

Honda’s S2000 was pos­si­bly the clos­est Honda ever got to ex­press­ing its two-wheel her­itage in fourwheel form. This howl­ing con­vert­ible broke rev records and eardrums. More di­rect and manic than the larger NSX, the S2000 could earn you a speed­ing ticket in re­verse gear. Avoid mod­i­fied ex­am­ples, be­cause the car was just right straight out of the fac­tory. This 12-year-old car on the Gold Coast has done 104,000km, but is just $23,990. Screams don’t come much cheaper.
