A few years ago we attended the Tail of the Dragon weekend with our Dodge Challenger SRT8 Snake Charmer as seen in this picture.

We are looking forward to attending again this month and hope another great picture like this one can be captured. Nothing better than wild SRT machines in the wild!

My wife is looking for an empty seat to ride along. She can't stand being in my car due to the pace I drive..................:D

We will get to the host hotel Wednesday night if all works out. Let me know if anybody has an empty, we will be at the ******* Barrel on Friday :2tu:

I think we are planning on pulling out of CB 10:30am. would be a good idea for everyone to start arriving 9:30ish or sooner to allow time for socializing, etc.

Im really debating on doing this event this year. The wife and I have time off so it works that way. The 11 hour drive im not pumped about. Im also wondering if many or anyone from Michigan or Ohio are going and we could meet up for the drive down.
Reply or pm me if interested.

We make the 11 hour drive also from New Orleans. It's a great time and well worth the trip. What other event puts you together with about 40-50 vipers cruising MTN roads all weekend! Go for it!!

You all have fun this weekend!!! I had plans to join the group on Fri for my first TOD ride, but had the car out yesterday and came across a softball sized rock right in middle of the road. It got my oil pan and has seriously derailed my plans on making the TOD trip. Maybe next year, and beware of rocks in the road!!! Haha :)

What year is your car? I can send you one, BUT it can be welded locally very easily. You can still make it!!!

2003 It happened about an hour from my home near a relatives house. I haven't been able to survey the damage since I had to just park it and couldn't get much access to inspect the pan. I am working on logistics of getting it home by tow or trailer it myself. Not really sure I want to turn it over to just any tow driver!

There are (3) of us leaving Columbus, OH sometime before noon on Thurs.
You're welcome to caravan down with us.
We'll be on GMRS ch. 10; message me for a phone number.

You'll have a great time if you come down!

Check your ***. If it is only the pan, we can fix you up

We have a member/Viper mechanic in K'ville. Let me know if you need his number. Maybe he'll be able to help?

There will also be about two dozen or so Viper owners there with extensive Viper-works experience who I'm sure would lend a helping hand.
:D
