Hey guys, I just need to start off saying how awesome you guys are for gathering all the tooling for the old vipers over the years. I waited a year to join the VCA after I was invited at the Cars and Coffee of Irvine California. My reasoning was simple, I didn't trust myself. I had gone through many cars til I found the right one. After a year of ownership of a red 2002 gts, I can honestly say it is the best car I have owned ever. It has so much character and I believe they talk to you. Case and Point. I was taking a journey up Highway 1 from San Juan Capistrano all the way to Portland Oregon. This was my little vacation for myself for moving for work. There was an incident where a slower driver who I gave ample times to get over in the passing section before I gave him a flash of the headlights. He started to allow me to pass but then as I was aside him he started nudging over to my baby. So I quickly get through him but not without half of my right rear steping off a ridge on the road. Suddenly she immediately swung to the left barreling towards a wall. I don't know if it was my experience racing high powered miatas or the car talking to me or God, but she told me to give her some gas but not too much and trust her. I did and she hooked 6 inches from smashing into pieces in a wall of rock and dirt. From that day she named herself Lucky and boy oh boy everytime I get in her do I feel that way. The car is not scary to drive if you listed to her. I get why people are so afraid of the viper. Because most people aren't really driving when they are driving, they are just along for the ride. I had a Z06 and it in no way compares to feeling one with the car. I finally get what Queen was talking about actually being in "LOVE WITH MY CAR."
