    No love for Canada?

    Are there any Atom Owners in Canada? Or is my Soap Box Replica the closest we have in the frozen north?

    There are a bunch that are track-only cars. Apparently your government isn't particularly enamored of kit cars - or perhaps that's a province-by-province thing, like the regulations in different US states.

    I believe the first Atom in Canada was Chip Petrillo's. But he had to bring each part in individually and assemble the complete car himself - not just the "drop an engine in" that we have in the US.

    I am in Edmonton, Alberta. Our government sucks when it comes to almost all Vehicle legislation. I just hope that one day, when I can afford it, I will be able to get one!

    The previous owner of my car was is from Ontario. He bought the car when he was working in Illinois, but he sold it because his Illinois registration was about to expire, and he felt he'd be unable to get the car registered in CA. It was a romantic meeting when I met my Atom for the first time in the parking lot at Niagara Falls.
