    That's the way to do it!!! It's funny how much the long wait has tortured many of us that ordered in November. I'm now on the home stretch, should have my Viper within weeks!

    I bought my Camaro 1LE in the same way that you bought your Viper. There are a bunch of guys in the Camaro club that ordered. As for me, I did a California-wide search. Found my stripped Inferno Orange Camaro, about the only option was the track package (1LE). That kept it cheap. I negotiated everything over the phone, got it in writing, then jumped on the plane! The car was fresh off the truck, it still had the white protective plastic on it the night before. They had to dealer prep it as I was in the air. No one drove it but me, no scratches due to multiple careless car washes while it sat on the lot. I decided to buy one as my track car Thursday, found it Friday, negotiated Saturday, drove it home Sunday!

    Funny thing was I looked like a Fnnn bum! My sweats were ripped my sneakers were the ones I mow my lawn with. My t shirt had seen one too many Dominos late night attacks! But like my mother always said never judge a book by its cover..
    I may have met a lot of you at Chucks Tators BBQ over the years. I am not new here. Just lost my old ID. Everyone calls me Dolph as I look a hell of lot like Dolph Lundgren. It feels so good to be back in the Viper community. I sold my 05 back in 09 and just jumped from motorcycles to older restorations with my dad. Once I saw this car I knew I was back in the saddle. LONG LIVE SRT!!!!

    That is an awesome story; I guarantee you gave that girl a story to tell for many years to come! Glad it all fell into place for you.

    I bought my 2013 427 vert the same way walked in looked at the car and no salesman came over so I asked this young girl for some help she said she was in training. I told her to sell me the car you should have seen her smile when MY VETTE.jpg 06-SS Wide Vette 6.jpg I wrote them a check and drove it home. Last week I ordered a 2014 Laguna blue Z51 Vette from her too

    Gotta admit your bow tie order is spot on. Same exact options and color that I would order. But sadly my wife would knock the piss out of me if I bought anymore toys. Just finished a bike build. Something I always wanted to do.

    That is awesome bro!! Nice to see fellow Americans pursuing and achieving their dreams!!! 35 cars! I would not even know where to begin. And that F750 is just unreal ! I love custom stuff like that. That is where true well laid out and engineered plans come to life ! What color did you go with on the Viper? I have white with black stripes, red interior GTS!

    If you think you are dreaming now - wait until it is delivered. The curves - check. The paint job - check. The driving pleasure - check. The Interior - HELLO - they really stepped it up and did themselves proud delivering an interior worthy of such a performance and exterior. If you need a pinch now ... just wait! :drive:
