I'm newbie to the board and have begun my quest for a Viper. If there is a thread to send me to answer my question just let me know. I'm trying to decide which version I would enjoy long term. I have driven a Gen I and Gen II. I have owned fast bikes (turbo busa) and cars (BDS blown 70 challenger) and many others. I really like the old school of the Gen I and I don't care about comfort but do care about nostalgia and some hp fun. Will the Gen I owners chime in and tell me if they often wished they had more HP, or they are satisfied with what it has based on what it is...a Gen I. If I got a Gen II I'd likely S/C it and have a blast but don't want something to refined...yeah I know it's not a Bentley, but the Gen I steering wheel makes it feel more connected to me as a driver, the rawness. No airbags, Abs, traction control, etc. but if I'm bored of the Gen I and need more power, I'd SC it and that almost seems a shame with their dwindling numbers. I'm in the SoCaL area so if anyone is selling I'm looking. Prefer unmolested, low or high mileage...doesn't matter. A chrome shifter knob with a skull on it,,would be a no sale. Lol Thanks in advance.
