ATL’s Finest – Quicksilver

The colour silver is often seen as a sophisticated colour and along with gold it represents wealth and riches. From Atlantis hails this shiny little rocket known as Quicksilver. I met the owner, Granville Syme, over a year ago when he asked me to do the judging at one of their events. It was here when I first laid eyes on this neat looking 2001 Toyota Corolla RXi.
