    It's home

    Arrived about noon, and the good news is 1) I can fit in it, 2) it started right up, and 3) it runs like a scalded ape:Kinda lousy pictures....I'll take some when the lighting is better.

    Was there ever any doubt? I believe even John Candy could fit in an Atom. (may he rest in peace..)

    Yes,the Atom is a joy to own and run..

    That garage is much too clean.... Looks like the Atom has found a good home.

    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)

    Well, my shop is not so clean:








    That's where most of the actual work takes place.

    Insurance

    Progressive won't write it. Chubb won't give me a quote unless I transfer every car, motorcycle, 4 wheeler, home, rental properties, etc. over to them. Rally is still in the hunt, I guess....still waiting on them to come through after receiving a quote back on October 30th. I talked to them again today, and I hope they will bind coverage. Anobody have an actual agent that KNOWS this coverage and is willing to write me.....I have a perfect driving record, never been sued, lived in the same place since 1978, etc. Once I get coverage, then I can move on with the titling and registration in Texas.

    I can't give you a definiitive answer but in Texas you have an option to bond with the state and you don't have to carry basic liability. You post a 55k bond for basic insurance and then carry your umbrella for the large claims. Then you are essentially self insured for claims less than $55k. At least that's what I did............
