Modified Honda S2000
James Rowe’s modified Honda S2000
Appearances, as my old Nanna used to say, can be deceptive. Take James Rowe, the owner of this awesome modified Honda S2000. When he arrived for his shoot sideways in a cloud of tyre smoke, not only did I fear for my personal safety (not to mention that of snapper Dan and his camera gear), but I couldn’t help wondering just what we’d let ourselves in for.
So who exactly is this nutter? Some sort of drifter? Surely a man who lives life teetering on the edge of imminent destruction? Well, when he announced he’s an IT support engineer from Kent, the sleepy garden of England, I nearly choked on my morning latte.
You see we have a few of our own computer bods here at FC towers. They reside in our basement, far away from the realms of normality, and, unless you really need a four-hour conversation on algorithms and Star Trek, the rule is to stay well clear. Can I imagine these guys driving anything other than a Prius or some other equally offensive snot box? not a chance. And certainly not a lairy, drop-top sportster.
