    5 Years

    I've been lurking here since April.

    I thought I'd post today to say thank you to Ariel Atom Chat for the birthday email.
    As it happens it's not really my birthday but 21st November kind of marks a rebirth in my life. On this day I joined the the lucky few who share Atom ownership.

    This year it has been five years and I've enjoyed 99% of it. I own one of the very first cars (Atom1) ever built by Ariel so I'd be lying if I said it was 100% barrel of laughs.

    In the true spirit of this forum, I know there is a non-factory mod to sort the other 1%.

    Happy motoring all.

    Hi, Johnny! Welcome, and "you're welcome" for the birthday email. I have our system set to send birthday wishes to all members based on the birth date they include when they sign up. So whether or not it's your real birthday, it's great to have you with us.

    Thanks guys.

    (Sorry for the slow response but browsing/posting has been a test of patience in the last week. Seems fine today.)

    Oh no!! Someone has not been feeding the hamster again.

    Happy Birthday Eric.
    I believe it was your 40th young fellow.

    I just checked, and your birthday isn't listed in your user profile. Just set it in there, and you'll get your birthday spam from AAChat next year.

    And Happy Birthday!

    Thanks for the great pictures AtomJohnny, and welcome to the forum. I'm happy to see another brave owner who takes his Atom nearly anywhere, anytime.

    Really mine is today.

    My daughter and second eldest son bought me a gift voucher to peddle a Bull around Hampton Downs Raceway. http://www.freemanxsupercars.co.nz/

    I doubt it will be as quick as the trip around in the Atom because I'll have a navigator limiting my cornering speed.
