Been waiting about 16 years to buy one, and finally was the right time. I plan to be driving it daily on the eastside, so feel free to holler if you see me!

Also, does anyone have any mechanic recommendations in the Seattle/Eastside area? I checked the WAVCA site but a lot of the links are dead or the people seem to be out of business. One thing I'm interested in is having the frame recall done, but have read a lot of horror stories and am apprehensive about it.

Thanks, and hopefully I see some of you around!

Congrats on your new ride. It looks great and glad your dream of ownership worked out.

Very nice.
Be careful with the frame recall, it is a very extensive job and you don't want some hack doing it. It is surprising to me that it has not already been done.
There are not many trust worthy Viper shops around here, in fact I cant think of even one that specializes at all with the Viper anymore. I am not a great person to ask because I do all of my own work on my Vipers.

Another thing you will want to make sure and check on is the power steering pulley and bracket, if they have not been upgraded it is not a matter of if but when it will leave you broken down. I have changed a bunch of these for people here in the NW, let me know if you need some help.

Thanks -- it has 18k miles. It will mostly be a daily driver barring poor weather conditions. And yeah, it is public parking (I live in apartment, but hope to move to a house soon).

Yeah power steering pulley is high priority on my list to get swapped, along with motor and transmission mounts.

Get a ****** as daily driver. Keep it covered on the public lot, some people just do not give a ship about a nice car.

John at Cantrell Motorsports has done track preparation/maintenance on several Vipers in the area, including mine.
