Today April 2, 2000 I flashed my lights to a red NSX coming from Road 12 to Napa onto the road to Sonoma, around 6:00 p.m. , you waved back. Are you a member of the NSX Prime network? Mine is a yellow '99 and I know yours is a T, you had the top off.

It wasn't me, but I was driving my NSX-T with the roof off up Highway 1 (around Santa Monica) when a red NSX passed me. It was red with an all black top, so I figure it was an older model (do they even do the duotone anymore?).

It was a funny site as I hadn't seen another NSX from inside my NSX before, but one I suspect I'll duplicate many times over the life of the car (I've only had mine for a couple of weeks). Anyway, just thought I'd mention it.

Hi Doug,
I thought you had the top off - I did, but of course the '91s are not Ts. Just before I got to the intersection where Napa Airport is located I saw a yellow one like mine - he didn't see me - two NSXs within 5 minutes! very unusual. My in-laws live in Sonoma and I normally take my NSX when we go to visit them. When I got my new 300ZX back in 1990 I compromised and got a Ruby Red instead of the pearl yellow that I wanted, big mistake! I was determined to wait for the yellow this time and I did. Enjoy that Boxster!
Tony

But, I have to agree with waiting for what you want and getting it. I waited 6 months to make the deal that I did for my new Y2K NSX in yellow/black. It really is a wonderful color combination. You hardly ever see yourself coming and going, especially "back east" where I am. Anyone have an idea how many (or how few) Yellow cars were made from 1997 - 2000 so far? Is it less than 100?
