    Can anyone tell me what they think the value of my car might be.

    lately when I look at the prices of atoms I just have to chuckle as the price of a used one seems to be even more then a brand new one some how. Why would someone pay the same price or more for a used item rather then just buy a brand new one? It's not like they stopped making them.

    Some people prefer the low-rev grunt of the GM LSJ vs. the high-end power of the Honda. Some may want options that are not available on new cars (the last time I looked, several years ago, there was no equivalent to the Recaro/Sparco individual seating with slide adjustment although that may have changed). At that same time, even leaving off the unavailable options, it would have cost me well over $100K to order an Atom comparable to mine from TMI - you're looking at well-optioned Brammo cars vs. the TMI base price.

    Bingo.

    To to O.P.,assuming everything is in excellent shape,I would start in the mid 50's and adjust lower only if you want to have a fire sale.
    The power of an Atom is a terrible thing to waste! Atom owner/operator since 2007. The more you chase perfection,the faster it becomes. John Force for President! (I asked him once in person...he laughed)
