    OK. I will do a typical post for me and bog down the server by posting pics! :rolaugh:


    So for those of you that missed it, here is a look at the entire NY Auto Show event. These pics were taken at the press release, the SRT Gala, the NY Autoshow, and the VCA party in Weehawken. I will try to describe what I can but it really is all in the pictures. They speak for themselves. This car is just freakin’ hot! I know this car does not show well in the pics but I hope you get the idea that this thing is one amazing car!

    So, let’s start at the beginning!

    The Hotel was in Weehawken NJ and we had to ferry over to NYC.

    And then to the show and the SRT booth! Sexy cars for sure!

    So with the press release, the two cars were scooped up and sent to a facility in So Ho for the SRT Gala. So everyone gathered onto the busses and headed from the hotel to the Gala.



    [​IMG]



    And the director! Eh Babby, How You doin? Did I spell yo name wrong? Fo get about it! :rolaugh: (Learnt that in NYC! :D)



    [​IMG]

    Set up outside was an entire SRT style event as well as the party indoors!

    Inside there was a lot of special on off SRT art as well as parts. Minus the full scale mock up, it was all for auction to VCA members!



    This was the first Gen 5 mock up….this was going to be the car at VOI…..



    [​IMG]




    Until they made this for VOI! This is a foam car with blacked out windows and a $10K paint job!

    And back to the Auto Show the following day! The cars were moved back from the gala to their display points. I am so in love with this car it is not even right. SRT did a fantastic job!

    Next up on the list was the VCA Party organized by Bobby (pronounced Baabby). My special thanks to all of his effort. What many may not know if Bobby spent months making this event happen from booking buses the night before to the gala, to the restaurant for the VCA event, to the Ferry passes and the hotel…. Thanks Bobby! You did a great job! Was for sure VOI class! :headband:



    [​IMG]



    Even a DJ spinnin’ NJ beats! :nana:


    [​IMG]


    Want food? If you know Bobby, you know there will be food!


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    Even hand rolled cigars!


    [​IMG]




    And a bar….



    [​IMG]



    And cars on display!


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    And the NYC backdrop was beyond fantastic!



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]




    And then there was some posing with the cars with the cigar folks…

    Thank you again to SRT for the fantastic gala, and Babby for all the hospitality and hard work in coordinating this all.

    It is an honour to be a part of the Viper Nation!

    Long live Viper!

    That GTSR is just so incredible looking, I get the same feeling I got when I saw my first Viper. I pray Lemke or someone makes a wide body that looks like that.

    Great pics!

    Thanks for posting the pics. I noticed the rear tires say 345 on them, thought I read the car has 355. Maybe 355 will be the production size??

    Wow, neat stuff!

    Love the Gen5, love that deep red color!

    That black Gen2 GTS still looks great....

    Will Sergio lets us beat Ferrari on the tracks of the world? (I think so, because Ferrari owners don't care if the Viper is faster, just we care about that)
    The Viper stands on it's own merits, and is second to none now.

    Was a pleasure hanging out with the both of you as well! :yay:

    Oh sure! :D

    Interesting point. Ever heard the term "stick" shift? :rolaugh:


    Viper already beat Ferrari. Its a little late to decide that. :rolaugh:

    And I think Sergio understands the Viper world. Its the American version of Ferrari but in an American way. I suspect the Viper will be just fine.
