    Home of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival..............Small Oregon town way down South. HUGE in Shakespeare. Odd that they build them there??? Wonderful town to visit, I recomend googling Ashland to learn more.

    Undoubtedly a transplanted Californian. :flipoff2:

    Edit: I meant the guy building them.

    Yeah, those things are super cool. Unfortunately, they can run to the upwards numbers of 80,000 for the super top end ones. 40,000 for the lower end. IIRC. Pricey, but I think that it would be totally worth it :D

    Reminds me of that glorified crotch rocket that mades its rounds few years back. I forget who made it but it had a couple seats with a small exo.

    but for 45K you are getting the fastest car around.....anything else that has the same speed and handling are over $100,000

    yep, that's right. I guess you could call it a budget supercar.

    yeah mods for the landcruisers have been put on the back burner till I own one of these Atoms..... I want to get a base model with the K20a in it, because I know enought about that engine to make nearly as much power as they are getting with the supercharger without me using Forced induction...

    K20a head from a civic or integra type-R and the K24 bottom end from a TSX, and Hontata Kpro tuning = about 270whp with stock honda parts....Throw in some endyn wave roller pistons and a nice set of cams and you be looking at 300whp no problem....

    Caterhams are cool, but the Atom is much cooler IMO
