i saw my first Ariel Atom


was heading out to Michigan this weekend, and on the Boorman near Chesteron, I saw a string of fast cars heading west. one was a Lambo, followed soon after by a black Atom.

it went by quickly (naturally), and it was a lot bigger than i expected. black was a pretty cool color for it, as well. gf gave me permission to buy one, after verifying it had 2 seats.

You can get an optional windscreen for them now.

there was one that would zoom around the SC Upstate. I'd see it from time to time, restlessly idling at a traffic light in Greenville before it would rocket off. Sweet.

I like the way that you've replaced the astronaut with the director of our beloved Excalibur.

Saw one of these at the track last weekend (Reno-Fernley Raceway). It was trailered and pretty much a track-only car, although it was registered. He was in the A group with us. It was one of the fastest cars out there that day. My buddy Ray and his STi were faster though, despite being 2000+ lbs heavier in curb weight, plus 200 lbs of me in the passenger seat.
