I cant believe im writing this but i like the magazine for a change. its not totally there but its a big step in the right direction.

i can so do without the stupid viper handsign but the timeline, jeff dunham, how to and the news about the [email protected] tooling was great.

i havent read the thing fron to back yet but its probably the first viper magazine i will read.

GOOD JOB !

PS: where is mark now ?

simple answer...it stinks...:)
followed by lee's jab at me...http://forums.viperclub.org/2482826-post11.html
I think you say this everytime for yuks. :D Or you just like to pull my chain to see what I come back with. It's like trolling for LeeFish. :rolaugh:
Have you noticed you are the last guy who seems to think this?
I must admit I used to think it was pretty commercially biased a few years ago, with lot's of other DC product stuff in it but lately I rack my brain every time I see you dump on it.
Soooo, here's the challenge...What EXACTLY was it about this last issue you did not like?
Seriously.:confused:

not worth it for the magazine, but the discounts ARE good for the VCA members from a lot of the vendors. so it is probably worth it just for THAT

I got mine in the mail today.

It was heavily water damaged (or snow) and ripped to shreds, and the envelope came wrapped in a large plastic US postal bag.

I called Viper headquarters 'twice' today to get another one sent to me, and never received a call back.

What gives?

What time did you call? I called last week around 1:15pm during the day and spoke with a woman who was very helpful. :)

Pretty nice for a brand new magazine and the skeleton crew that created it. And we have 5 more magazines coming this year. :2tu:

Just went through it, nicely done! Like the how to article and doing a celebrity owner article as an on-going piece might be interesting - didn't Stallone just pick up a new Viper?

Look forward to the next issue and....thanks for the calendar, a nice throw-in!:2tu:

The article about the Batmobile was quite intertaining. The how to section has a typo on page 23. "... Torque the bolts initially to 10 foot pounds working from the center.....( That should read 10 inch pounds)! It does go on to say finish off with 95inch pounds.
Moparboy does a good job with his story. I am envious of the Illinois Region and the High Speed event. How cool was that!

Good Mag... can't wait to finish all of the stories....

It's funny how people never miss an opportunity to publicly ***** about the volunteers that serve them.

Realize that Viper HQ is *one* person right now who may have to use the bathroom every now and again.

Send an email to [email protected] and someone will get you taken care of.

The ____ with the celebrity articles. :) Sorry, I am an anti-pop culture type and normally in a bad mood in the morning, which is when I just made this post! :****:

Intsead of celebrties, how about featuring different daily professions or careers who drive a Viper--in other words "Accountant in a Viper" "Lawyer in Viper" "School Teacher in a Viper" etc... Of course, the "School Teacher in a Viper" must be a hottie!!! :****: :2tu: Sorry, just mumbling this morning... :dunno:

Write an article and send it in. It's as simple as that.

Hope you have a better afternoon! :)

Good idea... I always get in a great mood when I start teaching, which is in a couple hours! Love the job (hate grading though)! :2tu:

Wait, I could be the hottie "Teacher in a Viper"... No, scratch that... I'm a middle-aged dude--my bad... :****:

They also announced the name of the new logo too officially called Stryker. Great magazine!

My shipping envelope was partially torn open, but contents were fine.

This is my first Viper mag and I'm enjoying it... except to see that Jeff Dunham is driving my car. D'oh! For the mag itself, I see good content, high quality materials, nice photography and printwork... well done.

And I'm also jealous of the Illinois drivers' opportunity to hit the high speed oval. At the manufacturer's own track! Seriously, that's just unheard of, and I'm (again) pleasantly surprised to see a real connection between Dodge and the VCA.
