Glad you recovered your GTS with only minimal damage. You'll have to excuse Free2Go ... we're used to it around here.

And why would I sell my Viper over my Z06? Because my Z06 is a better overall car. You can praise the Viper all you want (seeing as how this is a Viper forum I expect it) however it lacks in pretty much every category (speed/power/braking/handling/fuel economy/creature comforts) vs. a fully built C6 Z06 excluding aesthetic appeal. And if you can't agree to the fact, I guess ignorance is bliss in your case.

Let us not forget the unforgivable.....^^^

Well, opinions vary on that but mine did beat a 2007 Z06. He dropped a valve while getting spanked by my slightly modded 96 GTS. By the way, the re-sale value is way better than a vette...

If you are going to imply some type of conspiracy theory or having suspicions about what happened, please move along as this will not help me recover my car. I am a very reputable member in the corvette community, I'm sorry if I don't have the credibility on the Viper forums (though several viper members do know me). The call was placed to 911 2-3 minutes within me getting my my car to pursue him as I needed to safely navigate out of my neighborhood. And as far as Henderson is "crawling" with cops, only two were in the area and able to respond.

At this point, I am just asking the Viper community for help and to keep an eye out for my car and/or potential parts off of it. I am now working with the VIPER team (stolen cars unit - ironic of the name right?) of the LVMPD.

For the most part, viper owners are D-bags. Monday morning quarterbacking, the ridicule of not knowing every detail of these cars, being told to search endlessly prior to posting, the constant bragging of what's in the garage, and knowing the meaning to life is part of being a Viper owner these days. Part of the reason I refuse to pay for membership.

This could very well be the most poignant and thought provoking post I've read in months....

There have been many informative and helpful posts and threads made on this forum during the 15 years I have observed it and they still continue to this day. You can choose to see and emphasize the negative or note and praise the helpful. My experience with Viper owners is very different from your experience. Over the last 16 years, I have found most of them that I have met to be down to earth, caring people who, in general, tend to be leaders in their respective communities or endeavors.
