    I can tell you that I've heard Regal motors is REALLY SHADY. Proceed with extreme caution. I've seen the add too, look at the hood gaps... this one might be a rebuild.

    Yep I noticed it looks a little rough but that is a good price if it has not had any accidents. Viper fever I always wanted a gen one and two lol. Probable better to wait until I can afford a really nice B/W.

    This picture scares me. Front wheel position within the fender opening looks a bit off. Check it out thoroughly before buying.

    that picture looks like some serious front end damage. that front wheel should NOT look like that. Pushed back a bit to far. I kissed a curb once in my old GTS and required some frame realignment and new control arms, etc. and it looked better then that before the repair.

    It may just be the picture, but the "Viper" emblem looks like they put it by eye and did it letter by letter....while drunk. Plus, its completely missing the "GTS" part. And yeah that front wheel position looks really bad. RUN FORREST RUN

    Yes, that VIPER emblem is NOT the correct one for that year.That's the one they put on the newer Vipers. The gen 2 emblem is smaller letter size with GTS on the end. They took the SRT 10 part off before they put that one on. Some Gen 2 Viper owners are going that route. :headbang: :rolleyes: :eater:

    They should be ashamed for making Stevie Wonder do the inspection and alignment on that car. Run fast and far away.

    as messed up as that right front is, you wouldn't think it could turn without rubbing the inner fender... that emblem is in the wrong spot & missing the GTS part too.
    what are they asking for it anyway's?:dunno:

    They are asking 33,900 I think. I offered 29,000 plus delivery and he countered with 31,000 delivered to Texas.

    even if they gave it up for what you were asking, it wouldn't be worth it...... the damage obviuosly wasn't repaired right. :(

    btw, there's a clean red '97 gts for sale over on the "alley" for the same money......

    You guys rock. I have decided to go with a Viper in the VCA classifieds if everything works out.

    Nobody here wants anyone to make a huge mistake on a Viper purchase. That car needs to be 10-15k less and even then it would be a hard sell. Good luck on your quest to own one of America's Greatest Exotic Cars.

    That car has to have a wicked pull to the right when driving. Unless the left wheel was pushed back just as far:omg:
