    Everybody and their grandmother has a 1st gen Camaro. You can't go to a car show in Podunk without at least three showing up.

    I know exactly what you are talking about. I have a 98 rt/10 with 6,000 miles. They only made 127 of these in metallic silver, and that was it. I have to wonder how many are actually left in the world. Wherever I go, I always have eyes on me, and questions to be answered. I even had a police officer in a cruiser stop alongside of me one day, and gave me a thumbs up. It would be hard for me to sell my car, even with a huge profit, because, I know, probably never get another one like it. Also, I went to a drag track in N.C., and there were about 500 cars there of all styles, types, everything. There was not one VIPER, only mine.

    My thoughts are the same. A friend mine asked me if I sold my viper to him what would get...another viper

    So I take it you went with a Gen II. What color?. I'm always interested to hear why people chose a certain color.

    MustangII's were done being made by that time. The mustang fox body started in 79...so you have a really rare item there. That would be worth the deal

    I agree the Gen II GT2 White & Blue is the absolute dream car. I think I'd take that over a Gen V even though the Gen V is amazing.

    :( then not so rare :( I had a 76 and it sucked. The dark ages of Mustang. Anyway, back on topic. I love my GenII. The attention it gets is amazing, and you don't have a tonne of them at the car shows. Sure, the newer ones may be faster/handle better, but power can always be added to the GenII afterwards.

    If you have a real buyer for that car at $50k. Take the money, and run to the bank as fast as you can.

    Don't get me wrong, it's a nice car. But that is a ridiculously strong offer

    I did own both at the same time, and truly loved my GTS, but I have to admit that once the ACR was in the garage, the GTS rarely got driven... It's not just the extra ponies but the significant improvements of the car all around. Just sayin...why not drive one and see for yourself which you prefer?

    PS-I have never had anyone confuse my ACR for a Vette...that's a good one! (I've owned one of those too...)

    Why stick with the same car your whole life? Variety is the spice of life. Live a little!

    I prefer some things about the hood of the G4...

    I had a Gen 3 with full exhaust, intake and a tune. The car made 492 rwhp and ran low 11's on ps2's. Great street driver/ mountain runner. I now have a 96 B/W GTS. headers full exhaust and intake. Haven't had it on the dyno yet, but the car feels strong. Low end, the car is very similar to the Gen 3. Top end, the Gen 3 pulls harder. A Gen 4 pulls much harder than a 3. If you like to drive hard all of the time, the Gen 3/4 inspires a lot more confidence. They just drive better and stop wayyyyyyy better. That being said, I love my Gen 2. Even going to club events in my Gen 3, I could not take my eyes off of the Gen 2's. They are truly ICONIC.

    I really need to check out a gen IV and see the differnece between my gen II. That is the only car within my range that I would consider replacing my gen II with.

    I currently own a GEN 3 that I truly love but wanted a new GEN V which would of resulted in selling the GEN 3 (financial reasons). Well I just purchased a GEN 2 GTS graphite/gray stripe completely stock with only 6000 miles on the odometer, this enables me to keep the GEN 3 also. Anticipation is killing me GTS is in route to me from out of state I always loved the look of the GEN 2 GTS

    I'm new to being a viper owner. Just sealed the deal today, and it needs to be shipped cross country.
    I recently attended the SRT drive event and drove all the different set ups available in the Gen V. It was awesome. I kept Being drawn to the blue n white one. I realized why. I've always wanted an all original 96. So I searched all over the country and found a low mile all original, cherry of a 96. I can always get the Gen V, but I needed to do this first.

    How do you guys feel about supercharging a gen II? Reliability? Will it drastically hurt the value since only 53 B/W RTs were ever made?

    Reliability is fine as long as you dont over boost. If your looking to resell your Viper, then leave it stock. If you are trying to enjoy it, TURBO it!
