    Hey, wait a minute - How did you get that car? It was supposed to be auctioned by Mecum in June.

    I didn't think once a car was listed for auction it could be sold elsewhere? That is an awesome Atom J.R. Always was one of my favorites.

    Congrats! I'm pretty sure that's Riley's old car. That one and mine were built at the same time, completed around Dec 2012 (in case you care). Anyway, congrats!

    I grabbed it before it was "locked" into the auction. There is a window where a car can be withdrawn before the auction, even if it's listed. Just lucky I guess

    Thanks!

    Yup, it is his old car. I love it, it's pretty much perfect as is... although I think it's going to need some boost for this altitude (5,500'). It's quick, but not scary quick An EFR compressor should take care of that.

    After a bit of driving, I thought the same. I recently put together a kit using the ct supercharger. It's a whole different animal now. NOW I'm happy with the power. I strongly suggest the ct kit!
