    I’m the second owner of a 93 viper with 3,200 miles. Aside from some minor paint bubbling on the hood and gts rims, it’s a mint time capsule. So here is the question I would love to hear from this board (no write or wrong).... do I leave it as an original car or add some tasteful upgrades like headers, exhaust and other misc.?

    I drive it 17 miles a month on average, no real plans to get rid of it, but think it would be fun to play around with it a little more.

    Just curious to hear some opinions! Thanks!

    I had a 95 and headers and exhaust made a big difference, I also got rid of the cats car ran so cool, the side sills were no longer hot. Save all the stuff you swap out so its no big deal if you or someone else wants it stock again. Sold my car to a collector who I know, and the funny thing is he never changed it back but has everything if he wants to.

    Being an early car, with that low of mileage and "if" your intentions are to never sell it... It might be best to keep it all original. Or like Steve e said, only make modifications that are very easily reversible, hanging on to all the old original parts and knowledge.

    From a future value point of view, when the car will likely have insane interest from collectors.. if the past is any guide for the future... just look at old muscle cars and Vettes from the 50s thru early 70s, and which bring the most value as collectibles today. All original, low mileage cars with very low production numbers bring astronomical sales prices.

    With super low production numbers, and many cars having been totaled and are gone forever, our Vipers will definitely be there someday. You are the current steward of a rare car that will be heavily scrutinized by future collectors someday.
