    Here's the note and contact info:

    Viperclub.org Site Administrators,

    We are working on a new show for Spike TV called "52 Favorite Cars", two one-hour specials airing May 9th & 16th, transporting the viewer to a new world of rare exotics, amazing custom hot-rods, legendary muscle cars and even every day rides that turn heads.

    They need to get copies of the V-10 Nationals and show several of the better races.

    RSI shop and garage photos, Doug Levins shop and photos, SVS TT world record car would be great. I think it will be easy to fill the spot

    BUT and it the VCA buddy buddy system
    illimadates this to their favorites where unless you are one of the chosen you won't stand a chance. (only my 2 cents)

    I am having my video guy put together a highlight real of about 10 minutes to send in from the race series.

    hope it is not too late.

    great coverage if it gets on

    If you plan to mail any broadcast quality videos, you'll need to get them out overnight so they arrive by Tuesday. Thanks to the many of you who have sent images, I talked with Lisa Friday and she said she had pictures of "Lot's of great Vipers".

    Reguarding the comment above, no such thing as a "VCA buddy buddy system". Lisa is the producer, it is her show, she picked our site, and I'm sure she'll select images/vids that are in line with the site..

    Thanks again.

    Jay,
    You’ve got to make it a point to tell Lisa, of SpikeTV, about all the DC exec’s that lurk
    around here. How information was gathered, from members at vca.viperclub.org, for Viper
    improvements and with some extra push, made it into production with the SRT-10. And
    finally, how information, like my Arrow rebuild, make this resource invaluable to me
    personally.

    Done, I got a nice letter from Lisa yesterday, Y'all deserve a big hand:

    Lisa Wrote:

    "...I have been blown away by the enthusiasm and participation of your members. I have received double the amount of responses from Viper drivers and VCA members as I have from other similar organizations. That is a testament to your organization and to the car itself..."

    Maybe! Here is the latest letter:

    Jay,

    Your members are wonderful. Thanks for sharing this.

    I also wanted to make sure you all knew that due to overwhelming last minute voting on the website, we're pushing the air date of 52 Favorite Cars to May 23rd at 10:00pm on Spike TV. And since right now the top referring website is viperclub.org, it’s probably thanks to you very excited and very passionate members.

    I offered to take her around Sebring later this month. She turned me down. I guess my pulsating charm and throbbing good looks wasn’t enough for her to overcome the fear of slamming into a concrete wall at 140 mph.

    It used to be so much easier when I was younger. :(

    Jay K. since you're tracking a Ferrari Challenge car I'm not sure how impressed you'd be with my driving but anytime you're in the area you're welcome to join me.

    Same deal on the first date kisses.

    Chuck Sorry about the late response! I had to work late (*yeah thats the ticket!*) LOL!

    I'm a track rat that would love the opportunity whether in my future car circa ONLY 96-97 Blue/White GTS Hahaha or Hanging with the Very Cool Two Vipers Chuck it'd be an honor. I can ride B1tch only if theres no slow pokes in front of us as I get motion sickness if I'm not learning and we're tailgating a blue flagger in front of us!

    When the opp arises, You betcha!

    Thanks,

    Jay K.

    Spike TV sent us a "sneak peak" at that Introduction of "52 Favorite Cars".

    Check it out: http://www.52favoritecars.com/52Faves_Intro.mov

    If you're registered here, you got the email that explains why we go this advance "peek". If you're not registered here, register now and you'll be that much more informed! ;-)

    OK.... We'll not pull a "wait for more" deal.....

    We get the sneak peek because Viperclub.org was one of the top 20 referring web sites for the voting. Fantastic job y'all! Oh, and we'll be part of another program in Janurary!

    You're on their video preview!! It moves pretty fast, but you're about 15-20 seconds in.
