    Just like the name says when you see a viper post it here. because it is fun to find out what areas you see the most vipers.

    My buddy Kurtis (ILLSMOQ) and I are in San Jose and out and about every weekend. The only time I see a ton of Vipers is at our monthly VCA meeeting/dinner at Santana row. Its the rare time 30-40 Vipers are together at the same time. The meetings are usually the first tuesday of every month.

    Otherwise lately on Saturday morning exotic car meet at Santana Row we have had up to 10 Vipers show up.

    Capitol mitsu has a red srt-10 on the lot. wich means someone traded it in for a EVO. I used to have a EVO but love my VIPER way more and would never trade it for a EVO. but to each his owen. maybe I will walk over there and see what they are asking for it.

    I used to be at the Volvo dealer on capitol, now Im over at our other store on Stevens Creek. Funny, Ive seen three Vipers at dealers on the creek. A red SRT at hummer place, a yellow SRT at one of the dealers and a Silver GTS was at a European auto dealer, one of those independent places. All of these in the last week.

    That could have been me too, I live off of 280/Black Mountain in Hillsborough. I saw another red/silver stripe GTS on 280 north on near Sand Hill on Friday afternoon. I was on my Motorcycle and gave the driver a thumbs up.

    Hey Bay Area...I'm BaaaaaaaaaacK! Gary Almond just called and said my car (2003 Red Srt) should arrive at my San Mateo home this evening. After spending the last 2 years at my Las Vegas home (wife's job transfer fell through) the car comes back to my San Mateo home so I can enjoy it. Soooo if you see a Red SRT around the San Mateo Foster City area say Hi. :drive:

    I've seen one parked in a driveway on Hillsborough Blvd., near Barroilhet. I have seen one in the Marlborough area on occasion as well.

    There's about 4 that I know of in the Hillsborough area. The Red SRT with the stripe belongs to Rob. We met at VOI 9, Great guy! He did most of the mods to that car himself (Paxton,Exhaust,Penske). He lives near 280 and Black Mtn. Rd. Also drives a yellow Z06 and Silver SRT10 truck. My Viper was delivered yesterday around 1pm. I live in San Mateo and work in Foster City. Drove the Viper to work today.

    Im starting to see more and more around San jose area. For the last year I would only see myself and my buddies cars, or all the Vipers at monthly dinner meeting.

    Now Im seeing a couple every month. Saw a 06 VOI9 Coupe at Valley fair mall, had factory wheels done up in a blue chrome. Seen a couple B/W GTS in and around Santana Row. Just sunday, saw a Red/White GTS over on Monterey Rd and Capitol at a tire shop. And twice going up Hwy 9 to play in hills, we saw a Silver SRT coming down the hill. And lately when going thru Saratoga to go up HWY 9, there is a Charcoal/Silver striped GTS sitting out on road once and awhile. Now Vipers are everywhere.:2tu:

    But still nothing like the 30 vettes I see every day to and from work.:lmao:

    I must be looking in the wrong places....in the last 6 months I have seen only 3 Vipers on the road in other than the usual places. The usual places to me are Santana Row(VCA Meeting), Valaya Racing and the Dealership.

    Heck, we got 4 Vettes in the parking lot here at work.

    This pic was taken at lunch time a couple of weeks ago....That is a GT500 at the end and the stripe deficient car in the middle is a Z06.

    I thought about going to Santana Row to see who all was there on Saturday but wasn't able. Do you meet at 8AM or 8 PM?

    Actually there was a B/W GTS at Santana Row saturday. He left with about 50 Vetts that were there going on a cruise. I ididnt see the guy,but wondered if it was you,as ive seen from your profile that your in San Jose.
    Anyways, we meet at Santana row at about 930am. They used to meet earlier, then slowly got later. My buddy ILLSMOQ, myself and a buddy with a supercharged C6 meet up at his house of Cottle/85, at 9am. Then we cruise in together to Santana Row. There is usually a race or two on the freeway. lol We hang for a bit, walk to Starbucks and sometimes go for a cruise up HWY 9 afterwards around 11am or so. Im there almost every weekend. Maybe we will see you there sometime. Come say hey.

    On the way home from work today (about 4:30pm) saw a black SRT10 Coupe in Walnut Creek at the intersection of Treat and Oak Road driving away from Walnut Creek. A very nice looking car. When I first caught it out of the corner of my eye I thought for about a millisecond it was a C6 Z06... little ashamed of myself :crazy2:

    Always seem to see the nice cars when I'm in my truck and not my Viper :dunno:

    Was driving home from my folks place and saw a black RT/10 going north on highway 99 near Sacramento. Pretty sure it was a Gen 1, but I didn't get a good enough look to tell for sure. Didn't recognize the driver, but most of the VCA members I know are Bay Area. This was Monday around 11am.

    Not to be the only one posting BUT... saw a 2002 dark gray RT/10 on Treat Blvd in Concord yesterday heading towards the freeway. Had the top on. I was in my ACR, but couldn't see if the guy noticed me, I was going the opposite direction.
