    Alright. Let's settle this once and for all. Is there anyone out there that has access to the information that can answer a burning question? Who are wrecking Vipers? Old F**** or Whipper Snappers? And would it be safe to classify any one over the age of fifty as an Old F***? Please discuss.

    If you live in a cave and did not know life expectancy is over 80 then yes you could classify anyone over 50 as an old fa**. If not then 64 is the new 50. Do the math.

    Don't misunderstand me with the whippersnapper-old f*** statement. I'm serious about the statistics and think it would be quite interesting to know how Vipers are being destroyed and if there is some kind of trend.

    I really have no idea where you are going with your questions,
    but the simple answer is most pre-2003 vipers are "totaled"
    because of front end damage and post-2003 from side/top.

    While experience may increase with age, the [balls:talent] ratio
    of any driver is pretty much the same from puberty till death.
    That being said I assume younger drivers will tend to wreck
    showing off, and older drivers from overcorrection. Beyond
    that I would be surprised if you could find any kind of
    statistical pattern in accidents of any viper-owner age group.

    I don't think there's many people who can mess with the bull too many times and not get the horns.

    IF I ever wrecked my car I probably wouldn't come on here and talk about it. According to many commenters, anyone that wrecks there car is an idiot that doesn't know how to drive.

    Hey, even good drivers wreck their cars sometimes.

    Maybe they are a good driver but just not good enough for something unexpected that happens. Maybe they made a mistake, drivers are not machines and even the best can make a mistake.

    I'm no where near that good--just drive within my ability--have had 9 corvettes, several shelby mustangs, and the current stable. Must say I like the Vipers more than anything I've owned. ---Dave

    I dont think thats... entirely... accurate. For the most part if
    someone comes on and admits to whatever mistake lead to
    the crash we're usually pretty supportive. Its the a-holes who
    either 1) do something stupid (and post it on youtube,) or 2)
    who do something stupid and blame lack of traction control
    or poor design ect... - theyre the ones who tend it get
    dogpiled here.

    The viper does not take any responsibility for your well-
    being. Live or die, it will take you where ever you want to go.
    If you come here and post about driving off a cliff because
    your 9 year old MXX3s didnt grab right... well... things will
    be said...

    I am going to be 61 in 3 months and have had an Austin Healy, Triumph GT6+, 64 Chevelle Malibu, 69 Charger, Mustang 5.0. 75 Trans Am and 2 Vettes among other nondescript rides till I got my GTS 2 years ago. I've only been in 1 wreck and it was not my fault. A truck lost control and crossed the center lane. That was in 1986. I don't think age has anything to do with either being careless or careful. My Viper is the most awesome car I have ever owned, period. Art
