    I decided to drive to the beach today which is just 3 minutes from where I live. The beach is Kailua beach which is one of the nicer and quieter beaches on the Island. I have lived on the Island for about 4 months now and this time of year proves why I love living here so much. There is nothing like just being able to leave the house in January and be at the beach in nice 80 degree weather. I am not trying to make everyone else feel bad that are stuck in the bad weather not being able to drive your viper, instead I am trying to convince you to come and live out here and see what I am talking about :2tu: We need move vipers out here :drive:

    Doesn't it rain in Hawaii every day?

    Anyway, it was 80 or so here in Texas today and I did a little photo op myself. We could use some of that rain though if you would oblige. ;)

    And send some some of them jiggly grass skirts and a little sand too please...

    Yeah it gets frustrating sometimes how much it rains here, but it usually comes in small amounts. You just have to time it right to avoid it. Nothing worse than just washing the car and then 5 minutes later driving in some rain, I guess thats the cost of paradise.

    Where are your pictures? I would LOVE to send some of this rain your away, please take it.

    Beautiful pictures! I went to Hawaii on vacation once and loved it. Hopefully I can go back some day.

    I got to go driving yesterday but the top & windows were on b/c it was only 45. I did come across a Prowler at a dealership that I took some pics with. If only I could figure out how to get them off my phone so I could post them.

    Great photos. I especially liked this one with the wind surfers (or whatever it's called) in the background. Do you have to worry about the salt air corroding your Viper?

    I feel sorry for you guys...not getting to experience the change of seasons, white Christmas, or any winter sports! I do love to vacation in HI though, I surf and ski/board! Is that on Oahu? How about you drive to the North Shore and get some pipeline surf pics with the Viper in the foreground! That would be awesome!!!

    Yeah I have a spot in the garage, but I need to get a garage first :lmao:. there is a parking garage that I park in so at least the car is covered, but you will have to share with all of the other cars that park here :D

    Yeah its not good to park or leave the Viper on the coast line because of the high content of salt in the air. I never leave the Viper on the Coast. If we do go to the beach for a bit my wife drives. Maintenance on a car is a lot more of a necessity here due to the salt in the air. I wipe down the car about every other day.

    I stuffed my pics over in my aero build thread with the resolution toned down a bit. Gotta admit I'm really starting to like the goodies I'm bolting on my car. Would love the backdrop you have though for the pics! :2tu:

    Its not too bad, I really dont like the snow as I have had plenty of it in my life. Maybe after a couple years of the same weather I will agree, but for now I love the beautiful 80 degree weather here.

    Hmm, the pipeline, now that's an idea.

    I think the pipeline is one of the world's greatest natural treasures! [​IMG]

    I just looked at the pictures of your build. Your fabrication skills are amazing. It must be rough being able to have the space to work on your car like that.

    I have always liked what you have been able to fabricate for your Viper. I especially like the rear diffuser you made. Maybe you can make one for me as mine is all scraped up :D

    Very nice pics. Too bad those sails are in the background in that one pic or it would have been exceptional. To be honest, I don't like the wheels on your Viper. A set of Iforged Astras in anthracite would make your car gold.

    Great backdrop for a pretty Viper.....been to HI a few times and will return when my kids are a little older and a) can appreciate the trip and b) will behave well enough for that long of a plane ride.

    What island are you on? Only been to Oahu and Maui.

    By the way, its about 27 degrees here with lots of snow. The RT is sitting (clean)in the garage and hasn't been out for two weeks.

    I lived at Kaneohe for four years. Very familiar with Kailua Beach. Love it there. Great pics. Great place to have a Viper. Not, I repeat not, a cheap place to live. Congrats.

    I agree about the stock rims so I have some Forgeline on the way. They should be installed by next weekend :2tu:

    Thanks for the nice comments everyone. Well I am going to cruise to the North shore today even though it is cloudy. Hopefully the clouds will clear up and I can get some nice pictures.

    My Wife and I decided to take a cruise to the North Shore today. At first I wasn't sure how the weather was going to be today as it was really cloudy at first but we decided to take a chance anyway. I am glad that we did as we cruised the entire time with the top down and didn't get a drop of rain. It is about an hour drive from where we live to the North Shore. The photos are stops on the way to the North Shore. I hope that you enjoy the pictures. This time I remembered to keep the flaps down ;)

    Thanks for posting photos of your Viper with Hawaii scenery in the background. Keep doing that. I have fantasized about moving to Hawaii since I visited a friend on the Big Island. With your pictures I can pretend I'm there.

    Regarding keeping the flaps down for the photos - I once saw a photo of somebody's Gen III Viper with the flaps removed, so I took mine off. I haven't run into a situation where I wished they were there.

    Your car is beautiful. Please send some pictures once the forgeline wheels are on your car. You are going to really like the aftermarket wheels.

    I was actually thinking about removing the flaps today. You are right I never need them. If the sun is bothering the eyes that is why I have sun glasses. Hawaii is a blast to live. Its like I am always on vacation here, especially on the weekends when the weather is nice. I want to take the car to Maui where they actually have a track. Its too bad they dont have one here on Oahu. Trust me I will keep the photos coming. I have been slacking since I have been here as I have not posted much pictures so now I am making up for it.

    Keep the good comments coming and I will keep the photos coming.

    Crap...I have all four seasons. I would glady trade four seasons for one or two seasons (summer or fall like). I hate seasoning my Viper. I would be happy to sell my trickle chargers on eBay. Excellent Viper and gorgeous views...:2tu:

    Where were you 5 years ago, when I was Vipering around the islands?? LOL



    I felt like Christopher Columbus exploring Hawaii in a Viper!
