    He's got a 2013 Viper. I don't believe anyone has had that many...except the two geezers that helped finance the other club. Can't remember their names.

    Vettes, Porsches and a Ferrari ...the latter two weren't replaced by the Viper, just replaced for track duty when I decided to get more track time in and wanted the reliability and performance of the Viper.

    Started with a hi po 289 in a 64 Falcon Sprint.

    Graduated to a 67 Mustang GTA with a 390 / 335 hp.

    Then did a few Corvettes but always wanted more.

    Now, 5 Vipers later (still have 3), not sure what's next ..... but don't plan to sell any Vipers soon.

    I don't own a Viper yet but the coolest car I have owned in the past was a 1970 Formula 400 Firebird, bright red with the dual snorkel hood on it. That was actually my very first car, and then unfortunately went from that straight to a 1986 Toyota Celica 5-speed with 286,000 miles on it.

    Currently looking for a Gen V.

    Daily is a 2014 Maxima but I also own a 2005 SRT10 Ram Quadcab and I converted it to a 6-speed. B&B longtubes and mids, JTSVP TB, CAI, SCT Tuned, lowered and other goodies.

    Believe me... I am working on being a part of the obsession.

    I find it interesting that no one has mentioned owning a GT-R.

    I started with a 1995 v6 camaro in high school... Leaned why neutral dropping is not a good thing... Owned many many since... Worth mentioning would be a 1994 camaro z/28, 1995 svt cobra mustang, 1997 gst eclipse with built motor and a 20g eBay turbo, 1998 trans am ws6, 1999 f250 turbo diesel, 2004 turbo pt cruiser, 2002 camaro z/28... Still my daily driver, a set of 2001 Audi a6 2.7l biturbos, and an escalade... My plan was to trade the 1995 cobra for a 1967 firebird, no engine or interior and use the trans am drive train as the diner but the deal fell through. I love cars... I'd post a couple pics but I keep getting a message I have met my file list...

    Drove Vette's before my Vipers. Vette's were yellow 79 coupe, red 94 coupe, silver 98 vert, yellow 03 Coupe. Managed to work my way to Vipers and had 04 Black Mamba, 08 red/white stripes vert, and 09 white/black centerband/red driver stripe Hardcore ACR. Currently no Vipers in the nest, all gone but not forgotten.

    Picked up a Hellcat yesterday. Pics at bottom of the attached thread.

    The new ACR is calling to me...hope to be a Viper owner again!

    That's a fun progression to go through. It's neat to see how you worked your way up the performance chain over the years.

    1982 nissan Maxima diesel manual. Lol it was a neat car I guess in the 1990's. Then I went to a Plymouth Sundance that had a cassette player that would only
    Work if I had a pair of toenail clippers shoved in it. Next was a 1998 firebird. Fast forward through some other stuff till now.
    2012 srt8 challenger, 2012 srt8 chrysler, 1969 superbee and finally the pinnacle a 2014 Viper GTS maxresdefault.jpg

    ...I wish there were more women like you around me. If I saw a girl driving a 69 Superbee I'd probably chase her down and buy her dinner on the spot.

    My last car was a 370Z. I toyed with the idea of getting a GTR, but they look like a chode on wheels.
