Resale value: stock vs. upgraded

My 06 viper is still stock, except for a K&N filter. 25,000 miles which is kinda high. I was told by the guy I bought it from that I should consider selling before it hits 30k in order to get the most out of it. if I wait till after 30k, I may as well hold it for a couple more years and plan on losing $10-20k on it when its time to sell. Any truth to that?

I'm tempted to drop it off at Doug Levin and get it blown (extremely nice guy BTW). But, I could also use that amount of money to buy a higher mileage Mustang GT then blow/turbo it, not worrying about resale value and reducing miles on the viper. I don't really hit the tracks... just meet up with late night punks to street race and pick fights with corvettes on the way to a nice steak dinner with the wife..

thoughts?...

Fuck the resale value and fuck the Mustang. Your Viper will never be collectable. Drive it and enjoy it.

Thoughts? I think you're an idiot if you are not going to drive the car and let it sit. Regardless do what makes you happy, do not worry about resale.

Doug is outstanding and builds some fast cars.

Not driving you car and saving it for the next guy is like having a supermodel and not riding her, saving her for the next guy.

Both good points. I suppose the only "collectable" vipers are the 1 of 1, 1 of 10, ACR Extremes, triple black, etc. Correct?

I do know that a 1996 blue with white stripes and sub 5k miles have gone for $10,000 more than my car is worth now at the auctions...

It's a Gen III coupe. IMHO the only less collectible Viper is a Gen 3 'vert.



Flog the shit out of it.

I'd have to disagree with all of you. Copperhead is the most valuable of all time ever. Meteorite Viper is a close second.

Who buys cars for re-sale value? Dumbest shit ever. If it has tits or tires....you're going to lose money...period. Supercharge that thing and run it!

Just send it to Doug and you'll have a very reliable, fast street car that drives like stock until you put your foot in it.
With the Mustang, you'll be working on it every weekend to keep it running and sell it out of aggravation.

If you can swing it, go for a built motor with forged internals for the Paxton as you're limited to aroud 720whp on the stock cast engine.

WTF happen to the Viper community? Seriously, 10 years ago when I bought my car posts were about driving, enjoying, modifying, etc our cars. Now 50% of Viper posts on all the boards, FB is all about value/resale. Cars aren't investments folks, they are toys to enjoy!
