    I know exactly how you feel. I have bought a few cars in my life; but, I have never had a Viper before this one. I literally couldn't sleep the night before I was to pick it up.

    Welcome to the ViperNation.

    Last night the SoCal Viper faithful gathered together at a private automotive museum where the active members of the club were honored.

    We had a fantastic sit down dinner with full regalia while old friends reminised and new friends were made.

    Announcements were made for the upcoming years events, and plaques were presented to those hosting last year's events.

    You can check out the happenings at www.socalviper.com.


    New viper owners warnings always include making sure your tires are fresh and properly inflated to 29lbs. If your car still has the original run flat tires, they are now 8 or 9 years old, and will be pretty hard and slick. Be sure that you always have your Viper pointed straight ahead and your attention fully engaged before going to full throttle.

    Congratulations on your first Viper. A fantastic early Christmas present : >)

    Old geezers like Paul Hawker should be obeyed.....his advice might save your car from a sad ending. When is "Good Tread" actually Bad Tread? When its on a 3+ year old RUN FLAT tire! Dont trust your life to old rubber....

    When the Viper models first come out, many new-car buyers wait 9+ months and even more to get their Snakes home. EXCRUCIATING.
    So I know how you feel. The GOOD NEWS is, the "Viper In My Garage" excitement does NOT go away! Congrats...

    Hello Flatblack, Congratulations on your new Viper. I can sure relate to time being put in reverse waiting for your car to get to you. It took forever but what a feeling seeing it for the first time which it was in my case. You have one heck of a xmas present. Good luck with the wait it was tough

    Congratulations! I'm a new owner too, but my baby's in the garage for the Winter. Only got to put 200miles on it but loved every single one of them! Spring cannot get here soon enough for me.

    Enjoy!!

    Get ready to spend HOURS in the garage or storage just looking and enjoying the fact that it's YOURS. I just got mine back from dyno tuning two days ago and the weather finally got good enough to go outside with the washing equipment. I've spent an additional 2 hours this afternoon just standing there appreciating the 'art work' in my garage! It's been two years for me and I still stand staring at what had been a dream for years. Congrats on getting something that will make you smile when everything seems lost ... a Viper is something that makes you smile every time you hit the gas!
