VCA is the club that brings all the Viper owners together with local regional clubs and the main National club.
You can join this club as an owner, and will need your Vehicle Identification Number when you fill out the form on the JOIN! button above.
The VOI is a gathering every other year of...
Adding a Paxton will still give you that great drivability down low, but when you get the revs up, you will have all the Horsepower you can handle.
Great fun for reasonable cost.
If you keep the standard (almost 800 hp) tune, they are super reliable and only need more frequent oil changes.
Lots of Vipers in San Diego. A bunch just got together last weekend in Carlsbad. We are an informal group and not involved too much in politics, so keep pretty low key, and just have fun together.
Send me your e-mail via PM, and I'll try to hook you up with the local happenings.
We also have...
Predict that for a short while, Vipers will suffer at resale, simply because so many are on the market, and buyers can pick off the weakest sellers.
As the supply is reduced, the prices will then rise dramatically, as there will be fewer available.
Think the ultimate solution for Viper, would be for it to become the stand alone ultra high performance brand for Chrysler.
Think a updated vehicle like the current Viper, a mid-engine ultra car, a exotic and high output small two door coupe alongside a similar 4door hot hatch.
Out of state Vipers, with over 7,500 miles on them are pretty easy to bring into California. Just need a visual inspection and they take down the VIN to make sure it is not stolen or has defective title.
I am in San Diego, and owned a Gen II. If you find one locally, l would be happy to look it...
I kinda like Free. Often provides a fresh perspective, along with a unique sense of humor.
Feel differently about those that only post to stir up trouble and offer no solutions. Think there is a special place in **** for them.
Lots of active Viper owners in San Diego.
No need for wrenches. We have lots of established, professional and independent Viper mechanics in the area.
Send me a PM if you want a list of places to take your Viper for service.
Best advice for new owners is to make sure you have good...
I had an 03 and 09. The 09 was a far better car, and sold it with 50,000 miles. It held up well over those miles.
For my money, I would go with the 08. It has a stronger motor, stronger transmission, much better rear end and all around it was better built.
Biggest change I made was upgrading...
Automobile magazine thinks it does...
The sound matches the fury.
Like Bob, I decided to lighten the load a bit, and have slowly been getting rid of 20 years of Viper collectables.
Mostly have been going to the friends I have made in the SoCal Viper Club.
The memories that go with these are best served by me by making gifts of them to people that I think...
When you see one of these Stryker Red Vipers on the street, you will understand more just how outstanding this color is.
It is the color they painted the original prototype, and wanted to come up with a very emotional color that would assist in getting approval from FIAT to OK the production of...
It may be that some of the people purchasing very expensive sports cars are doing so because the cars are known to be expensive.
The feeling of driving a ultra expensive car may be more appealing than driving a less expensive car that is even better performing.
Kind of like leather seats...
Much of the technology enableing low priced, mass produced, efficient day to day transportation econoboxes were first developed on high performance, limited production performance cars.
Fuel injection, turbos, twin turbos, superchargers, combination supercharger/turbo rigs. Radial ply tires...
Chrysler had their own Mid Engine concept car, the ME4/12. Got a chance to ride it it at a California Speedway event.
Car was a one off, but almost production quality. 4 Turbos drove the frantic 12 cyl. rear engine. Super high tech design for body, driveline and interior.
Keeping things simple, you can just use what ever soap solution left over from washing your car to clean your wheels. If it is mild enough for the paint, the clear coat on your wheels should also tolerate it.
Use a separate soft brush, and go easy on it. Your wheels should end up bright and...
