I just called about this car since it's for sale on autotrader and their saying you never bought the car? Something fishy, you come on here saying you bought it but their saying your loan was approved but you never actually bought the car and backed off because your wife didn't want it, which is understandable but saying it's yours is a little you know.

Anyways I'm not too sure this car is that good of a deal, I called on it and it was a barn find, it's been sitting for a few years and they changed all the fluids supposively and fired it up but never even drove it longer than here to the gas station so I'm not too sure I would put up $17,500 on a car that has never been driven longer than one mile after it was sitting for a few years. I'm sure it's going to take a few grand to get it right and that would put you in the 20's for a car with a rebuilt title? So just some FYI for people that see the car for sale. When I asked if they cleaned the injectors they said no, I would think something sitting for so long would get the injectors clogged up from build up, maybe someone else can chime in?

The car was mine. ....I got approved to purchase the car through my bank, but it was pouring down rain for the last three days and snowing...So they took it off the market and it was mine with the condition of the test drive...After sleeping on it over night my wife decided we didn't need it...I have still been going back and forth with thinking about buying it...I do know that the car had sat for 6 years in the barn and wasn't drove...I have no reason to lie to you...I also know it was leaking fluid under the car...And you are right they haven't drove the car at all...This is one of the reasons I'm going back and forth with buying it...Also the hood has about and 8 inch long crack that went all the way through to the bottom..So that will have to be professionally fixed as well and repainted..The paint on the rear bumper is also cracking and bubbling...sorry if my post is messed up or misspelled..I'm typing from my phone...

Also the car sounded to me as it may have muffler problems, or exhaust leak...Maybe that's just how they sound being I have never owned a viper, but that's how it sounded...The dealers are super nice people and they are getting a lot of calls on it, but problems is you can't really test drive when its raining and snowing...I have really good pictures of the car if you are interested in having them...Also it did smoke when they fire it up and it was warm when I got there cause I could feel the engine heat, so not to sure why it would be smoking in a heated garage, not like it was cold...I will say though the frame looks awesome and if you look at the carfax I posted the car only had like 2 thousand miles put on in the last 10 years, which can't be good for it either...and its had A LOT OF OWNERS..

No problem at all, sounds like you did the right thing by not buying it. That car makes no sense, it's leaking fluid, rebuilt title, needs new tires. They forgot to mention the part about leaking fluid when I called. So they want 17,900 for a car that will probably need 4 to 5k in work then you have 22 or 23k in a car with a REBUILT title when a few have sold for a little less with a CLEAR title around the same year. What did they say when you asked them about the leaking fluid?

You bought it but you didn't buy it.
It has a 4" crack but it has an 8" crack.
It runs like a champ but it leaks fluids and has an exhaust leak.

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking. He clearly stated he bought it but never did? The car sold to someone else but I sent him a pm to try and call him and ask him about the leak since he drove the car but never heard back. People like that are exactly why you can't trust anyone on the internet LOL. No offense but clearly came on here lying when he clearly NEVER bought the car.

Can I piggyback off this thread???

My viper is getting repainted and the bodyshop has a 2001 yellow GTS that was a total (sideswiped) and was rebuilt/salvaged.

The bodyshop owner is an acquaintance, and would be willing to sell it. He wants to drive it this summer but would be looking yo sell during the fall and told me to make an offer.

35k miles
Salvage title approved by PA so is registered and good to go
No frame damage, was all cosmetic.
Parts repaired, not replaced. Hood and all...

So I ask you viper experts, where do you place the value?
