    To sell or not too sell ?

    If it's blue w/ white stripes, it will command a premium. 100k +/- 10k is a ballpark estimate. Subtract 10-20k for any other color.

    So which Viper is or will be the most collectable?

    I think the original blue/white 96/97 gts's and 02 final edition red/silver because of their desirability already in the market, and probably a lot from Gen V. There will be a lesser desire to have the first cars from 92/93. Also, I think there were one or a couple of White w/ blue stripe 96...

    Here's a couple of pictures I found with a quick web search. I can pull out my backup drives and get the pictures of my nicer work if you're interested, it's been years since I built one...

    Dodge viper office chair

    I've built over a dozen Corvette chairs...used to sell them. If you're interested, I can show you some of my work and discuss building one for you. If you want to buy a pair of the seats, I'll build one for you and one for me. I'll supply all the conversion parts and labor.

    Trying to buy 2013 Viper - But was in an accident

    While the price is attractive, I'd agree on the repairs being suspect. I've repaired lots of cars, including corvettes and vipers and would never consider a patch job like that. The accident appeared light, and it wouldn't have cost that much to do it right.

    Need 97 gts passenger airbag, anyone know where a cheap one is?

    Hi all, I recently purchased a 97 gts that is not wrecked, but had a custom stereo install that deleted the passenger airbag. I'd like to return it to stock if I can find a reasonable priced airbag for the passenger dash. I'd also consider an rt10 style glove box if anyone knows if it would...

    Gen 1 Seats

    I've been looking to have mine redone, though I'm not quite ready yet. What little research I did pointed me here: https://www.venzanoviper.com/ work looked exceptional, prices reasonable.

    06 Viper Coupe being delivered tomorrow - with keys inside - HELP!

    color diff may be due to many shades of dirt/dust. Alignment obviously out on bumper due to current damage. Previous owner must have pulled the emblem? Could be prior work as well...I'll probably know more once the repairs get started (or at least after it gets a bath, lol :)

    Here are a couple photos after delivery yesterday :) It's in desperate need for a bath! As I suspected, both doors open/shut normally.

    06 Viper Coupe being delivered tomorrow - with keys inside - HELP!

    No, it's not just the money. In fact, I'm currently building an 07 Duramax C2500 Chevrolet that I'll make more money on. Those kind of projects pay the bills, but it's the love of the cars that draws me to cars like this viper :)

    06 Viper Coupe being delivered tomorrow - with keys inside - HELP!

    Oh...I guess that would have been easier :) I didn't see one at the handle area, and did see the one on the rear. I was probably biased from the recent Z06, as there is no keyed entry on the door. Doors are electronic just as the Viper, but only entry is to hatch via hidden key just above the...

    06 Viper Coupe being delivered tomorrow - with keys inside - HELP!

    Thanks, I appreciate it. I'm open to doing business with any number of you guys! Actually, the repairs are at least as good underneath. The entire tub was replaced instead of repaired...hatch was replaced instead of repaired, etc. I even found replacement pieces in the same color, so that...

    I love high performance cars of all kinds. I thought it would be okay to post a picture of another type vehicle, as it illustrated my specific experience in the rebuild process.

    06 Viper Coupe being delivered tomorrow - with keys inside - HELP!

    They're quite use to doing it on these vehicles, that's their business. However, they use longer forks, and pick them up from the front/rear (not the sides). The forklifts are specifically designed to pick up cars w/o damaging them hundreds of times per day.

    No, I don't know most of you out here, though I respect your opinions and advice - which is why I started this thread. I didn't say he/she was wrong on any advice either, I only stated my own opinions on the repair process. Given the fact that I've purchased well over 100 salvage vehicles...

    06 Viper Coupe being delivered tomorrow - with keys inside - HELP!

    I appreciate the thoughts on repair guys, though I'm quite comfortable with the financial risk involved, and having the repairs completed. However, I'm also good at what I do. I outsource most of the repairs to local shops, and source the parts personally to keep costs down. I do final...

    06 Viper Coupe being delivered tomorrow - with keys inside - HELP!

    Took my receipt for payment to the dealer and was able to get a key cut by VIN. Let's just hope it works. Steve-Indy - I didn't see your phone number, though it would come in handy if for some reason the VIN-cut-key won't open the hatch... Can't wait for it to get here, now that the...

    06 Viper Coupe being delivered tomorrow - with keys inside - HELP!

    I have the VIN. Insurance auctions will NOT release VIN's before the sale is complete, however. Not sure why they have the policy...but it's been that way for many years. Obviously you can get them if you see the car in person before bidding, though that's not always possible when trying to...

    06 Viper Coupe being delivered tomorrow - with keys inside - HELP!

    Fix/sell...though the reason I technically bought this project over others I'm more familiar (ie Corvettes) with is so I can play with the Viper for a bit before selling. I think I have a buyer already in the UK (same guy that bought the 08 Z06 I just finished).

    Thanks, anyway to open the hood with a locked car? BTW, Pacethis is my username on multiple forums, got use to using the same one...I've had numerous Indy Pace vehicles...several 98 Indy Corvettes, a 96 Dodge Indy Truck, and currently a 5k mile Indy Fiero. I noted damage to the left...

    06 Viper Coupe being delivered tomorrow - with keys inside - HELP!

    I'm assuming I won't be able to get the hood open as the cabin is locked. Once I can get into the cabin, I'll have the keys... I can try getting another key cut, though title is coming in with the transporter, and I'll need to unload it from his transporter as quickly as possible so he can...
