    Taking the youngest for a bike ride and the neighbor had 2 out of his 3 vipers out. The red one is on a lift and stores the green one under it. 


    It's a bit strange to have 3 of the same car, for me anyway. Love the kermit green.

    I agree.  I was thinking the same thing.  My first thought was that maybe he works for Dodge or Chrysler?. Although, now that I have done some investigation, I am surprised there are four generations, and 22 model years (over 25 years) of the Viper. I thought it was a single generation made for a few years.  I guess I just never got into them.  But, I am sure they are a spectacular car.

    I guess I could see having a 1950's, 1960's and a 1970's Corvette.  Three models, 25 years apart.  I have no idea what years his cars are.

    I agree that it is odd. He does not work for dodge or chrysler.  He is just a loyal car manufacturer person. His daily driver is a 394 charger and he pulls the vipers with a 3500 Ram. I believe the blue one is a drag car and the other two are show cars.

    I imagine it is like having multiple eggs.  One is enough, but more is better.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    Imagine having enough money that you spend $7.5 million dollars on 80 of the same boring sports car. Some people are just lucky in life

  • I actually kind of like the Viper.  Of all the sports cars Dodge has produced over the years, I think it’s one of the more interesting ones.

    But I don’t understand the interest in buying more than one.  Then again, some of you have like 6-7 kamados, lol.

    It's fine just nothing spectacular. I do agree it's one of their more interesting ones they've made. Jay Leno did it right, guy has like 300 cars and every one of them is unique.

    My college roommate and one of my best friends since 1st grade had at one point five Mercury Cougars, all immaculately restored.  Think he only has two now.

    Love the red drag car. The chrome bumper included in the splitter is a nice touch.

    I like the license plate.  That means he probably drives it on public roads on occasion.

    When I was but a wee lad, there was a car show in Northern Michigan.  Two funny car drivers decided to race on a public highway.  Their transport rigs dropped off the cars and blocked the road.  Then the two fellas raced.  Those were the days.

    I like it as well. I will always remember when I took a trip to Italy and I was walking the streets in Milan amazed at all the exotic vehicles parked everywhere. There was a group of older Italian men sitting at a table talking when a viper rolled up on them. Their jaws dropped in awe and ignored all the Ferraris and Lambos passing by.

    It's a great modified car. Love the big wing on the stock looking boot lid (guess it has massive reinforcement under that skin). Full interior too. Love it.

    @The_Buffalo - This latest economic run has been extremely good to you.  
    Margins and sales have gotta be off the charts! =)
    Great looking ride right there!

    Those aren’t in GA, might be stock internet photos from South Carolina though.

    All photos are my own. Some of those cars are in Georgia others were taken at the Chattanooga Motor Festival! 
    Thank you for the clarification. Nice photos,   looks like you might need a wide angle lens though.

    Given there is no “agree,” I hit “dislike.”

  • Such a cool car.  But man I’d be afraid to drive it any place that isn’t really really flat.
