    Atom 3 Arrived - See Pics. Have CA insurance Q

    Hello All. I just registered for the site. My Atom 3 got delivered last Friday to Sector 111 in Southern California and is currently in queue to get licensed for road use. I think it turned out pretty cool, no? (see attached photos)

    Can anyone be of assistance in recommendations on insurance companies who will extend full coverage on the car in CA? I have a perfect driving record, but my insurance agent is having a hard time getting in covered. Well, maybe a "hard time" is being a bit dramatic, but it hasn't been a slam dunk like we thought it would be.

    Any assistance you guys can be would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to getting to know some of you over the next few months. If anyone wants to meet us for a drive in Southern California...I'm down. There are some great roads around my house (Malibu).

    Thanks in advance for you help. Its sincerely appreciated.

    Steven

    Great looking car! Love the matte black

    I have Rally as do most of us, but the price has gone up after some wrecks

    I had progressive in the past and they cover kit cars (call it a kit car, not an Atom and that should work)

    Who is the other one that was working lately? Leland? Classic? I cant remember.

    Great looking car. Congratulations! I love the shower cap over the steering wheel.

    I'd be careful of Progressive. If you tell an untruth by omission I bet they wouldn't honor the policy. I had Progressive and as soon as they realized they were insuring an Atom they dropped me like a well-greased baby and had no remorse backing out of the contract. Left me high and dry. When they did that I canceled all of my policies with them and won't ever go back.

    Be warned.

    ha, looks like I started a wave of mattetoms. Looks great!

    Give Tina a call and let her know that I steered you her way. I have mine insured for an agreed upon value, and it's reasonably priced.
