    I came across an oportunity I could not resist and pulled the trigger!

    Thanks to Bernie Katz for making the transaction smooth and quick! If anyone is looking for an exotic I highly recommend him:
    BJ Motors - Used Dodge Vipers, Exotic Sports Cars

    I now own both cars on the cover of GM High Tech Performance Magazine January 2009 :D

    Tim (F8L SNK) took great care of this car and did an awesome job building it, and it shows, he is very meticulous, everything is best of the best on this thing.

    It has street tires on it, so only 4th gear rolls for me at the moment LOL but will be finding some DR's soon :D

    Beautiful Car, Congratulations!!!!! AbsolutHank(Ryan) after seeing this beautiful Twin Turbo, I'm pretty sure that your new car will be transformed into something similiar before the end of the year.

    Nice!! I saw it on eBay last month, and glad to see it went to a resident Viper guy!

    My car can only aspire to be as badazz as his new car Unreel!!

    Wow. Very nice move Tiago. I had been "eyeing" that car for awhile. Glad to hear the Bernie treated you well. I may have to pay him a visit.

    Congrats again.

    Stupid questipn maybe: what the heck is the red thing, is it a stealth, never seen it before?

    Viper looks awesome! Any pics from underneath where the turbo's are, just love those pics.

    Trans Am. Never cared for the look of them myself. Older ones have a much better look. This design is what probably killed Pontiac. ;)

    Tiago I spent a good part of the day today at TX2K11 with Tim and Kirk and I was thrilled to find out that the car was staying local. Congrats man Tim really takes care of his toys and it sounds like it found a great home!

    Oh yeh Bernie's the Man:)

    In 1998, for those of us that couldn't even think of ever owning a Viper... the LS1 TA. And with tons of aftermarket options, too...

    Back on topic, though: what a gorgeous TT Viper. Very nice!

    I had a Trans Am Firehawk. The WS6's and Firehawks are under rated cars in my opinion. Good bang for the buck. Great throttle, suprisingly good handling, and excellent stereo system (Monsoon - one of the best "stock" systems in any car I've ever owned)

    Was wondering when someone was going to pick that car up. And by far the best color.

    Congrats Tiago. Did you trade the silver vert in? I thought someone bought Tim's car over a month ago?

    thanks! I did trade the silver vert in.

    the guy that bought Tim's car last month traded it back shortly after for a new 2010, I guess it was too much for him :D Good for me :D

    Just curious but why would GM have a picture of a Viper on their magazine? Unless I am missing something this does not make sense to me.
