    thought I would pop in and say hi. I am new to the forum but not to Mopars. Hopefully I can attend some western WA viper events.

    Welcome!
    What kind of car did you pick up? What area are you in?
    I think you find we also have some other interesting Mopars and other toys.

    I am in Yelm (Western WA). I bought a 01 Yellow ACR. I also have a stable of Mopars to include 2 E bodies, an 01 yellow Ram, 99 Dak, 91 Stealth RT and 05 Hemi Durango.

    Your fleet reflects your YELLOW FEVER as some here have, eh Paul and Paul?

    I also have had a Yellow ACR, 2 yellow Rams, and an SRT-4 Yellow...but my 2 Stealth TTs were black and are Blue/White GTS striped (tape, as you plan.)

    Please Join VCA 1-800-998-1110 if you have not (says you are!)...........and call PartsRack soon! CONGRATS

    I did join last week. My partner greg B. from Lakewood recommends you. In fact I am in need of 1 ACR sticker for the right side of my car; part of the little flag is gone.

    thanks. I believe that there were 38 mono yellow ACR's built. The stealth is getting a little long in the tooth and is in need of a rebuild or replacement I think. Too many cars and not enough time.

    That is such a gorgeous color yellow...guess it IS rare if only 38 ACR's were made in that color! Hey, the Stealth may be getting old, but look at RTTTED's 2 Stealths he has...they were and ARE a great car...love 'em. Wow, probably most people wish they had that problem, 'too many cars, not enough time' :D !! Just ENJOY~~when you can in the inclement weather you probably get as well as we do...:( ...cars sleeping away covered up in the garage with 1 1/2 feet of snow outside on top of ice....:( ....driving season cannot come soon enough! Congrats on your gorgeous Viper. :2tu: ~juli

    Glad to see that you've got the color-matched Viper / RAM combo!
    I wonder how many of us that makes now? 4? 5? :drive:

    Well so do I....How about that-
    Oh the 07 Caliber matches too!:rolaugh:

    I'm in Olympia, so It's GREAT to hear there are more cars down here. You are the third in Yelm, and there are 3-4 others in the general area (not all are members).

    Look me up in the phone book and give me a shout when you get a chance! I've sent you a PM.

    I have seen it but it seemed that it wasn't updated. I see the note about the meeting so I guess it is.

    Cool. I belive you actually live pretty close to me. I live down on 93rd, I have seen you drive down here once or twice. I have a buddy that has a red 01 GTS in Tacoma and another buddy with a Gen I RT/10 (not sure where he lives). Other than that I dont know anyone who has one.

    LOL, no worries. Between my viper, vette, all of the other cars I have that is not an issue. Not to mention all of the kids that seem to live down the road that want to drive 100 mph. I have done a burn out or two there.

    I have not even registered my car yet, just had an appraisal done yesterday. As soon as I get it back I am off to the DMV to make them rich (or me poor).

    Welcome. We, in the Western Canada Region are your neighbors! On Father's Day there is a Show & Shine which is pften attended by Wash. cars. Hope to meet you there.

    I've also got "too many cars", but not enough garages (only 6 car spaces). I drive my modified Stealth R/T TT throughout the year, and a stocker TT as a spare. I've got a 500hp 440 Duster that I take out once a year for the local rodeo.

    Lol, none of them are color matched though.

    Excellent!! I too have a stealth (NA) that my son drives and a 440-6 Challenger RT and a 73 cuda under construction. I am have an issue with the stealth however it "surges" under acceleration.

    Replace it with a TT, you won't regret it.

    There's a "western Cda 3si" club with many members in Vancouver. My Stealth and one of the 3si members ES Stealth were featured in Domestic Driver - A bi-monthly online magazine featuring Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, and GM Cars from 1980+ magazine this month's issue.

    I've also got a 71 340 4 spd Demon project that has "stalled out" during the last few years, since I bought the Viper, sitting in one of my garages. Trying to sell it.
