    Yeah. Your domain already has good back links so your content is getting ranked. Build some more links and you'll be on a first page in no time.

    If you don't do anything, the rankings will start to slip pretty quickly.

    But as Pankage said, you can simply build links to the site and see how it performs.

    It's a good sign that it ranks by itself, and I would pursue it if I were you.

    Sounds like you got a really good expired domain. I would build some tier 2 backlinks

    neither it is normal nor Jaw dropping,so better start link building for this and let it come on Page 1.

    yup its kinda normal with a decent expired name.

    As ambitious12 stated, build on it. Get some content and maybe some more links (if needed) and start ranking.

    I don't see anyone going to the point of keyword competition?

    I could rank a page at number 1 with no backlinks if the keyword was stupid enough.

    Eg "Almost black packard v12 in south England with new wheels" I could rank in 48 hours.

    So - what's they keyword comp like?

    Yeah, it will rank.. once it gets settled out.
    Push in some niche backlinks to see the real power..
