    Hi all,

    my name is Corrado.
    This is just a very quick introduction of myself to this forum.
    Since January this year I am the very happy owner of a 2006 black SRT-10 roadster.
    Also of course I am now very happy of being a forum member and share our passion and useful informations with all of you guys, and have access to all of your reputable knowledge on our favorite toy…

    thanks all.

    ps I hope I managed to attach a picture of my car on the beautiful Cote d'Azur roads.

    Corrado, One of the most famous Viper racing drivers in hissstory is a Monegasque: Olivier Beretta. Driving for ORECA, he won LeMans x 2 as well as 2 FIA Championships and an overall win at Daytona 24. And a NICE guy, [even if he did switch to Corvette after Viper stopped competing.]

    Your principality is so small that perhaps you have, or will cross his path....

    Welcome to the world of Viper ownership ! There are many of us that dream of being able to drive the Viper throughout Europe, and certainly Monaco would be tops on a destination list. I challenge you to post a photo of the car in a location that is quintessential Monaco. Such as in front of the Casino de Monte-Carlo. It will probably take a buddy who can get out and take a quick photo while stopping the car. Here are a couple of my suggestions. Monaco photo1 Monaco photo2

    I am envious !!!

    Welcome to the Viper Nation Corrado. The guys in Germany and Switzerland are pretty active, maybe you can coordinate to meet up with them for one of their events. We just saw a lot of them at VOI.13 in San Antonio Texas. I will ask Fredi to reach out to you. I have been to Monaco several times, what a beautiful place, and now more beautiful with a black Viper driving around.

    I will wager that even in Monaco, where Ferraris and Lambos are common place , your Snake garners a ton of attention and admiration?! Enjoy and welcome to Viper ownership !

    Damn it Jon Brobst, you beat me to it. And yes, my favorite driver and good friend Olivier Beretta is from Monte Carlo and lives in Monaco now. What a life........expensive one too I might add.

    That would be ORD to my fellow Eastern employee as in MIA !! And actually no as my trips last week (before COTA) did not go thru ORD thank goodness. I heard it was an ex disgruntled ATC guy that started the fire. 5k more posts and bye bye DAVE6666:nono:

    Is ORD+MDW+CGX not = CHI ? It was all closed due to a failed suicide / vandalism spree of an 8-year ARTCC contractor with security clearances! Now the Monoco guy will never want to visit!
