SO I have owned my Viper for a month now. This dang car has changed my life I swear!

I want to ask a question though. Are you guys happy with just one? two ? three? I have been having this
overwhelming desire to have like 4-5 Vipers. Like seriously.... 4-5 Vipers just for me... Mine.... Not for anyone else.

Chloe basically said that I can keep buying them as I pay them off....

Is that gluttony? I don't know what it is. All I know is that I want to build another garage on the back of my property that can hold at least 6 cars. She wants a new Laramie Ram, a 1 of 1 Viper, and a Hellcat.... I've created a monster!

I have this weird feeling growing inside me... I think it's an obsession I can't tell.

What's it like to own more than one Viper?

Well to use a little humor, you know what the man with five genitalia said when asked how his pants fit? Answer: "Like a glove." Same with Vipers. I have never seen a negative post about having more than one Viper and quite a few members have more than one.

All bull$hit aside...ViperPete, you work at a dealership correct? What do you do there? Are you and Chloe planning on having kids?

Me for example, my wife has 2 more years of school (Viper #2 and 3), I have a daughter who's about to graduate and go to Ole Miss (Viper #4), another daughter graduating next year and probably going to Texas Tech (Viper #5) and 2 sons just a few years behind them (Vipers #6 and 7).

I'm sales manager at a Nissan dealership. Chloe is our owner loyalty manager- think customer service. We work together- that has it's own advantages and disadvantages lol

We've decided to postpone having kids for a few years. The reason I bought a Viper now is because this really is my only chance. I know that as soon as we have kids, they are gonna be my life. I grew up in a very poor family so I want to make sure that my kids have whatever they want.... not spoiled... but comfortable. I didn't want to wait until I was 50 to get one as I might not want one then. Maybe i'll be into boats? golf? who knows. I can afford it right now. So I did it! I'm 31 and Chloe is 26. Just seemed like a good time.

I do wish the Viper came in DCT as I'd love for my wife to be able to drive it. She loves the car but can't drive stick at all. This was the only reason I was thinking about the C7Z w/ A8.

My wife is willing to learn how to drive stick. I'm going to teach her on my SRT10 Ram because I think its easier to drive. Then, she can drive the Viper.

And they're never jealous of each other

I don't have multiple Vipers (though there are multiple Vipers in my family), but I think my cars do get jealous of each other. I'll go to fire one up I haven't driven for a while and I'd swear it was mad at me and drives different than I remember or has some new quirk/issue. It's usually explained easily enough (ex. battery in my Dart that was fine for years and would start up just fine even after sitting for months decides to act up and not start the one nice day I want to drive it). I just figure I can keep driving one while I fix another, then drive it while I mod another, etc.

That's pretty much how I feel.

I think everyone goes through the phase of wanting multiple Vipers. After 10 years I still get the itch to get another one from time to time. The main reason I don't is that if I were going to tie up more money in another car, why not get something else. This way you can have a different driving experience.

I have wanted an R8 for a while, however, Kid 2 and Kid 3 came along and crushed that reality.

Lets hope they never become this kind of jealous

For me it comes down to just not letting go of the one's I have purchased. I only let my 05 go because I purchased a 05 GT. Obviously that turned out to be a good buy. I also will not sell that car at any price even when they hit a million plus in 7 to 10 years

I am the same exact way. I want a collection too!!!

What I would advise, being a father, is diversify how you spend. Don't compromise other areas of your life, to make one area better, as the others will suffer as a consequence.
Moderation is the secret. I really wanted a Shelby GT500 as well as the Viper, but I will put that off. Instead, I focus my attention on family first, and tinker with my new Viper when I can. And just because you are having kids doesn't mean you the fun is over! It's only beginning!

It's nice to be old and get what I want--looking at getting a Gen 5 ACR--never sell the others--Dave

I have four teens. When I want to strangle one of them, I go for a drive in my Viper...and it's been REAL rainy here in North Texas.

I do believe that these cars WILL appreciate greatly in the next 20 years. There is not a doubt in my mind that they will be going to 500k+ by the time I am 50.

With enough of them in my stable, that will be quite a bonus to retirement.

God I hope you're right. But alas, I have grown from innocence to experience...a cute little Harp seal to a blubbery *** Walrus. ViperPete, your story is remarkable and your enthusiasm is infectious, but it would take a lot of testosterone and a defibrillator to get me to believe your latest post up there.
