    Hi Everyone!
    I am so very close to buying my first Viper a 97 GTS. I am sooo excited. I am buying it sight unseen, but am having a PPI done. My question is I am 5' 1" and am worried that I will not be tall enough to push the clutch in etc. Are there any other vertically challenged people on here that can put my worries at ease? I currently drive an 02' Trans Am WS6 M6 and have the seat up all the way and am fine driving the car. Any advice would be greatly welcomed! Hoping to get the deal done by the end of the week. Thank you in advance!

    pjsid you will be fine, the seat moves up pretty far and the pedals adjust to. In my opinion the car is more suited for people under 6' . The 97 GTS is one cool car enjoy it.

    My wife is 5-0 and has comfortably driven my GEN 2 vipers for years. No worries!

    Depending upon logistics I might be able to help with transporting your Viper
