    Yeap, sold my car today, made me want to cry to see it go. Such a beautiful machine, I don't think I've ever been so attached to a thing like I was to that car. It was something people that knew me identified with me. I always wanted one as a kid, and I guess I was lucky to realize that dream...

    Goodbye Viper Club.

    Sorry to hear...damn, it makes me feel sad as if a family member were lost. I don't think I could depart with my Viper either. Sounds like you'll be back someday. Good luck on your journey!

    Sounds like me when I sold my car. Good thing is it ended up in the hands of a friend from here so it was not too bad.

    Having just had a baby boy I can tell you that it is the greatest feeling in the world being a dad. Enjoy the twins. Get some sleep now because when they are born you will kiss sleep good bye.

    Well, just blame it on the Viper, it obviously made you even more virile or you wouldn't have had twins,ha!

    Congrats, and sounds like you and your wife are quite blessed. Had to get rid of the sports car when our son was born, and it was a good choice. When the twins are older , I bet old dad gets another V10 toy, and it will be just as fun the second time around.

    Hang around, you are still a Viper owner at heart!!:headbang:

    Congrats on the twins!! As stated above, get your sleep now because once they come, sleep will be a hot commodity in your household ESPECIALLY with 2 babies. Our 12 week old daughter is just now sleeping through the night.
    Sorry you had to sell the toy but it will be worth it.

    Gee, if you wanted kids I could have lent you my 4 & 6 year old boys for a day and you would have changed your mind and still have your Viper. :lmao::lmao::lmao:
