    Chapter Director's Intro

    Hi! Welcome to S2KCA-LA. My name is Roseanne Murphy (R.Murphy) and I am your Los Angeles Chapter Director. I bought my Rio Yellow Pearl S2000 new in 2007 and I've been in love with the car ever since -- some days more than others, of course, but it's never let me down and never fails to bring a smile to my face when I drive it.

    I have driven some form of convertible since I was in my early 20s. For at least 15 years I drove Miatas, then came the S2000. I don't foresee my interest in convertibles changing any time soon! For about 3 years I also owned a 2005 Lotus Elise, but it just couldn't replace the S2000, and so when a vehicle had to be sold, it was the Lotus that went. The S2000 checks every box on my must-have list and it does it in spades.

    For several years I have been organizing regularly scheduled drives, track days, and other car-related events via a Facebook-based entity called The EOQ Drive Group. While The EOQ Drive group is non-denominational (not Marque specific), many of the members of the group happen to be S2000 owners. I look forward to creating even more events specifically for S2000 owners and members of S2KCA.

    My goal with S2KCA-LA is to create a strong membership base, encourage community and fellowship, and provide value to those who associate with us. I hope to achieve this by creating interesting drives, events, and other get-togethers both here in the local LA area as well as in coordination with other regional groups such as San Diego and the Bay area chapters. With S2KDays being hosted here in sunny SoCal in 2018, I look forward to showcasing our home location and sharing with others the wonderful playground we get to hang out in every day of the year.

    Keep an eye on this thread for a link to the Facebook page currently under construction for the Los Angeles chapter!

    And once again, welcome to S2KCA-LA!
