    New member in California search of an Atom!

    I'm looking to buy a used Atom in the US. Let me know if you have any leads! Closer to Cali the better, but willing to ship the right car.

    You have to dig a little but there are cars still for sale in the us atoms for sake section. I know of one in SoCal. Number 73.

    A few others have popped up on eBay that did not look like they sold. Check completed listings.

    I'm not sure I'm ready to sell, but I am ready to listen to offers.....

    Here is what I have:

    Vehicle Description from manufacturer-Options.
    GM Ecotec 2.0 Liter 245hp 215 ft/lbs Supercharged
    Wilwood Track Brake Package
    Koni Aluminum Adjustable Dampers 3012
    Billet Aluminum Steering Rack
    Center armrest with storage compartment
    SPA shift lights
    Quick Release Steering Wheel Hub
    Yellow Body Panels
    Standard Fenders
    15" Front / 16" Rear - 5 Spoke - Silver Team Dynamics wheels
    New Toyo Proxes RA1 Tires-205/50R15 Front, 225/50R16 Rear
    MasterLube Accumulator System-Ecotec Engines
    Roll Protection Bar
    Remote Brake Bias Adjuster
    Battery Master Switch
    Towing Eye Kit
    Side Panel Kit
    Twin Bubble Windscreen
    FIA High Intensity Rain Light
    Individual Seating Package Recaro Pole Position(adjustable and very comfortable)
    2" six Point Belts
    Road Race Lighting Kit
    12V Power Source
    Anti theft system, immobilizer
    Billet Aluminum Accelerator Pedal
    Passenger footrest & Driver Dead pedal
    Billet Aluminum E-Brake Handle
    Locking Fuel Cap

    Upgrades:
    3M protective film on fenders, bonnet, leading edge of control arms,
    Palatov rear hubs, upgrade rear bearings
    HyTech header and exhaust
    Piaa driving lights
    Mesh screen radiator protection
    Under dash mounted travel bag

    Extras
    -set of 4 black Team Dynamics 12 spoke wheels
    -set of 4 Yokohama ES street tires
    -set of 2 Yokohama AO48 225/50R16 Rear

    Comes with the Supercharged GM Ecotec engine, 245hp which is the best package to have.
    The beauty of the Ecotec engine is that you get your torque lower down in the rev. range around 3,000rpm, compared to the Honda engines where the power comes on around the 5,000 mark.
    This car dynoed at 228hp which puts it around 268hp at the crank.
    Actually, Brammo 300hp Atoms put out similar horse power numbers.
    This car is fully registered and titled in California, which means you will never have to smog check this vehicle, ever in California.
    You can modify the engine, add a turbo or whatever you like without having to smog check the car.
    This is very important, because registering a new or out of State Atom in the State of California is a crap shoot, as the State only issues 500 exemptions per year, on Jan. 2 for a population of 30 million people, so if you miss out you would have to wait an entire year in order to try again, and that's with no guarantees.
