    Well, they had NO luck selling it on eBay, I guess they "made a deal" with a local group.

    I think that foreward rollbar brace looks like shit! Not to mention making entry/exit even more difficult. If you have a windshield,you better have 38" inseams to clear that sucker! I think it is totally unnecessary anyways...Hell..for a 1300lb car just the center hoop is more than enough.

    I like the Roll Bar, and I agree with Mad that the brace is a major pain. It would have looked so much better and probably worked just as well without that. Oh well.

    I'm shocked the car isn't balled up yet. For 30 seconds I toyed with the idea of renting my Atom to a local exotic group (so I could drive 458s, Gallardos, etc for free) but I'd put the over/under on a totaling an Atom at 7 rentals.

    If you can keep it shiny it seems like a great money maker - driveline is dirt cheap and I bet you could get at least $1500 a day for it.

    Renting would be a good way of upping your odds of getting an insurance payout. Just wait for the renter to total it, get your insurance payout to buy a new one!

    Insurance?? We don't need no stinking insurance!

    I would not drive that car with the side bar brace like that,unless I had a full face helmet and the bar was properly padded. I just don't like it. That thing would do a number on someones noggin in a side accident.
