    Just to share a few recent photos of one of Florent Moulin's immaculately restored GTS-R's out on track.
    Against modern technology and development, the Viper is still a force to be reckoned with;
    C20 now 12 years old, was running the same lap times as the Mercedes SLS GT3 :2tu:

    Nadine, thanks! Great memories of the best days in viper racing! I hope that one day I can own one of the Oreca cars. Michael Greenberg brings his out on occasion to the SoCal tracks, works of art! Hope all is well and those moton mounts are working for you! Mike

    Great car. Thanks for the pics. Sure wish I was rich enough to have purchased the blueprints and molds to those Vipers. I hear some company in France has them now.

    If you weren't so busy buying big brake kits for all the ghetto-wheeled members...maybe you could have been :)

    This is good so many still love the awesome GTS-R's, IMMOP they were the best ever Vipers.

    The one in the pics above is perfect, no battle scars (!) restored from the bare frame up:

    Fantastic! I so long for the days when Viper would head back to LeMans in the big league. I was there in 98 with the VCA and it was a memory like no other. If I had the moolah, a GTS-R would be in my living room. Thanks for the photos Nadine.

    " but I don't see Dodge name on this Chrysler viper...What's up with that? "

    I thought the name in Europe was different. Dodge wasn't a brand there and Viper was reserved for something else, so it was called the Chrysler SRT-10 or something like that. that is if I remember what I had read elsewhere.

    great pics Nad !!! how'z yours coming along ?

    Dodge dealerships in Europe is a recent thing, they only been here for about 3 years in the UK and are struggling quite badly

    TheMilkman isnt quite right, 'Viper' name was dropped in 2005 (long after the heady heights of LeMans victorys in the previous decade) after Chrylser lost in court the right to use the name, after a guy who registered it way back in the 60's complained
