    Sorry--we don't bring our Viper out to play in the snow~~our driveway is steep, so just taking it OUT of the garage, we'd end up sliding down into the ditch!! We'll get it out when there's NO snow/salt...enjoy your time in the snow...but get that Viper back to bed!
    LOL~~~juli

    Sorry for the small pic and poor quality (no digital back then). It was the winter of '94 and my kids and I got the urge to make a snow schulpture. Our house is off the road 500 ft and we got calls wondering why our Viper was out in the front yard. We had it exactly to shape within fractions of an inch (yah, right) but it did get rained on before paint.

    Drove my 98 Roe supercharged GTS from Illinois to central BC last Feb. Got a really dirty going through the Rockies. Washed it 200mi. from home and it was good when I hid it in the garage 'til spring.

    Got chased by a Blizzard dumping 12" of fresh snow a day behind me all the way to Montana.

    Bought my 01 GTS in Aug and it was parked in the garage before the snow fell, I just switched the insurance over to storage.

    Vipers are the absolute worst cars I've ever driven in the snow and ice. Spun out twice on ice covered highway while just cruising and had to tie ropes around my tires to get the car to move on flat ground (driveway). When I arrived home with the 98 I had to tow it 1/8mi. of my driveway with the wife's Escape - and she'd not about to EVER allow me to forget that!

    Since they don't make any snow tires for the Viper and the performance tires are summer's only, it's not much wonder why these cars are the worst to drive in winter. After 32F they're like driving on steel rims. I suppose that if someone had to they could buy some Dakota rims and put a set of ice radials on them, ... but why?

    Ferrari's vette's and Porsche's must all be equal fun. That's why I have a Stealth R/T TT with all wheel drive and all wheel steering - fastest supercar in BC during winter!

    I think it's blasphemous to drive a Viper in the RAIN - you guys don't even want to hear what I have to say about the snow. :)

    The Viper snow sculpture is totally cool.

    carguy07...Thank you for doing that; I haven't figured out how to re-size pictures yet. My little girl in the sculpture now teaches special ed in Cuyahoga Falls High School.

    Last Feb. when I brought the 98 GTS home from Illinois.

    Parked beside my Stealth R/T TT you can see that the cars are quite different shaped. The BMWs etc. have 4 doors and they are too big to fit in the pic, lol.

    I was at the Exxon today and condensate water dripped off the canopy covering the pump area.

    There was a scene after that...

    But they have a mop detail up there from now on.

    Best snow picture by far! Very artistic! Good use of lighting and just enough snow to still tell it's a viper.:2tu:
