    After many years of owning a Vette (which I still have for now) I finally pulled the trigger on my childhood dream car. I had to get the color combination that was the first viper I fell in love with.

    A little bit about myself: Been into cars all my life, owned strictly GM up until now. 2 vettes, 2 camaros, trans am, gto. Do the normal 9-5 and do freelance website design/development for companies in my spare time.


    I look forward to attending the club events!

    The listing for my car is still active for some reason even though I bought it last Friday, but here are all the pics. http://www.thomasclassics.com/web/vehicle_photos/6818745/

    Congrats and welcome. Only thing you will not like about the monthly meets is how short the drive is :)

    See you around.

    Welcome to the dark-er side, Zach. Get rid of those crap-tastic run-flat tires ASAP. Nothing but wheel-hop, harsh ride, and no traction. The car will handle, ride, and grip much better on just about any tire on the market that is non-runflat.

    Those tires are the main reason that so many Gen 3 cars ended up in ditches.
