Well I just want to start out by saying I've enjoyed all the posts I've read here..and they helped sway me over.thanks for all the input you guys put up! very valuable to existing and dreaming of owners!.. I just traded my 06 C6 z-51 vert and got my dream car! Ive had 3 Vettes (1 '04coupe a 05 vert and a 06 vert ) but i always wanted a viper..The wife finally (got convinced of the value!) all I can say is Wow! First impression..I got the red one with silver stripes..Really sharp and so far in two days I've gotten more questions and thumbs up than i got in the vette in a month.. After having driven powerful cars for a long time I'll try to give my un-biased opinon.. The vette was a dream.. Very civilized and smooth.great handling and alot of gadgets.(i persoally dont care about gadgets). (Being a car guy i would have loved to keep both) but, it was not to be at this time. Where as the vette is civilized the and smooth Viper is pure raw power...Smoother than i would have thought and very comfortable inside..Im 5'10" 180lbs..and it fits like a glove..I love the seats....much more supportive than the C-6 ..The paint is flawless.. Every Vette i had had orange peel that i had to work on..The Vipers paint is perfect... The fit and finsh Perfect.no work required! And the brakes... I've never driven a car with this kinda of stopping power...! and the acceleration.and handling ..all i can say is.. Holy Moley! I used to race stock cars when i was a teenager and this thing is the real deal....Man I love it...The wife said she liked the Vettes...but now that shes seen the viper in person and driven in it.... She says WOW! no comparison...I know this is not real scientific..but rather by the seat of my pants but i am so glad I bought it.. thanks for helping me make the final leap! just two questions.. Does any one know where i can get a spoiler similar to that on the coupe,,,It is so sharp..that i almost purchased a coupe just for the rear end.. I'd love to put that on my Vert..and also the gas filler door...Id like to get that also,any help would be appreciated... Thanks guys im heading out for a cruise,,, and check the handling out some more!
