Damn, Rob, I was almost impressed. My gf and I went and looked at the Vipers in Naperville. Very sweet looking for a cage... but they wanted $84,000+ for the things. shaw, as if!

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I've seen GTS's for $38K. Mainly 30K mile 97's. I like the front end of the new SRT/10 but that Miata-esque rear end has to go. Also waiting for the hardtop version of the SRT/10. I dont like convertibles.

Actually its something I've been considering. Hell a GTS is cheaper for me to insure than my DAKOTA!!

Around here the Viper sould attract LESS attention from the cops than the sportbike.

I get to see a brand new viper go by my house after he plays a round of golf at the country club down the street everyday. Looks incredible, but the exhaust isn't that flattering for the car if you ask me.

I agree...the V-10 rocks, but i like the sound of a V-8 better.

Shiny side up, rubber side down.

Yeah, I'd like to get a GTS someday. Not sure what I would do with it though. Not sure if I'll ever get over the bike phase.

My Cobra replica is for sale. I rarely take it out, maybe once or twice a year. But yeah, the rumble of the V8 through the side pipes always puts a smile on...

Mopar, I had the priveledge of driving a pre-production Viper GTS around Lake Geneva. Went through DElavan, Darien, Richmond, Harvard and came back up US 12 to Lake Geneva. At about 140 you can still steer with one finger on the wheel.D Took the off ramp for HWY 50 in Lake Geneva at around 80-90 or so. Damn thing stuck like velcro.D

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.
