I had heard rumors that it sounded like the same problems that happened here several years ago were just repeating themselves there, but they were just that, rumors. Regardless we're happy to offer what we can here.
Generally speaking I think the Viper landscape is just kind of difficult in general anymore. There were so few cars built that they are really kind of niche compared to something like a Corvette or Porsche club, and with them out of production they are even more in the shadows than they used to be (it kind of makes me think of TVR for some reason). It always seemed strange to me that Dodge didn't really seem to market them either. The early gens were way more out there with the Indy 500 pace car, the TV show (love it or hate it, at least it featured the car), the Le Mans and other racing, and just general hype. I've seen almost nothing regarding the gen 3 and on in modern media aside from the typical reviews, but I also didn't really follow Viper stuff that much until I got mine. You'd think with all the track records and stuff they have set that the car would have had more presence and halo status, but even at Mopar car shows (at least around me) the Viper kind of gets shunned. They are all about the classics and the modern muscle and the Viper just has this weird place out in left field.
All of that said, I guess more what I'm getting at is that the "market" for a social club is a harder sell now than I think it ever was before. Not having any real manufacturer backing doesn't make it any easier either. Facebook and other social media platforms help to scratch that itch for a lot of people to allow them to share their cars and experiences without actually having to meet in person like the "offline" days of yore. I think too as the cars get more and more rare people are less and less inclined to drive them as they want to preserve them and keep their values high, so it's even less likely to get big turnouts and shows and events if it's not perfect conditions to get them out. However, this forum will hopefully always be a place where people can come to seek Viper knowledge and comradeship. There is so much historical content and knowhow here that we hope to preserve for as long as possible and to continue to add to, so we welcome all who are interested.
