    There was a local guy who lived around the corner from me who put a TRAILER HITCH on his beautiful viper.

    He is dead now I killed him, for doing it.

    Don't make the Viper sound like a woman! It's a 90's muscle car for street and track, not some 300K ferrari that will melt if a leaf falls on it, or some fancy Vette-Viper wanna-be with heads up display. When I put the hitch on, it didn't take away from the car. In my opinion, it was a more manly car. I didn't worry about a small square chunk of metal being seen from the back under my exhaust. Big deal. First off, I was able to bring tires and tools to the track in order to go faster, and I didn't have to go for thousands for an open or closed trailer, not to mention that the truck I had couldn't pull the car.

    True, after a while I went to a open trailer and bought a new truck, but mostly for the convenience of setting the car up at home and then I'm done. Plus, on long 1000-1500 mile trips, I didn't have to put so much mileage on the car.

    Oh, and please don't use the word "beautiful" to describe a Viper. Flowers and girls you want to marry are beautiful. Vipers are Cool, Hot, Incredible, Powerful, Wild, or any similar adjective you would like to apply.

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    Okay......I was holding out for the first guy who called about it, but I guess he fell off the face of the earth, so anyone who is interested, it's yours.
    Seeing as how I have to ship it, and the average hitch, tongue, ball and so on goes for a couple of hundred, and the fact that the hitch and tongue is custom, how's about $300.00? When I took it off my car, I sanded it down and painted it black, so it looks clean. E-mail me and I'll respond with pics. I don't have the time right now to post pics.

    I know this is resurrecting a really old thread here, but anyone have any info on this hitch? Where did it mount? Any cutting of the bumper cover?
