Unhappy Said goodbye to a old friend

After 4 years of stewardship, I am sad to say that I have sold my Viper. I need a car that can haul around kids, so I ordered an M3.

I still remember when I first saw the Viper concept at the LA Auto show way back in 1990. What a thrill that was. I pined for the car for 12 years, and finally made my dream come true in 2002. Although I never tracked the car, I had many opportunities to enjoy the power on the streets around Orange County.

I'll miss all the smiles people give when they see a Viper heading their way. The little kids exuberant jumping up and down and pointing when I drive near. The thumbs up from older gearheads that appreciate the Vipers sportscar prowess. The furtive looks by anonymous babes in the parking lots. The slam my head back torque that never seemed to end.

All gone, but not likely forgotten for a very long time.

Are you sure getting rid of the kids is out of the question?

That is absolutely right. When I was born my father had a Yellow Camaro SS. I never remembered the car, but saw pictures of it when I was older. And something I realized recently was that I have a yellow Viper and I recently had a son.

I remember my dad's 69 Riviera, his '63 SS Impala, and his '64 SS Impala. I'm still trying to forget that VW Beetle he bought when gas went through the roof in the 70's.

Did you ever see the article that kids cost on average 250K before they even go to college. That's a lot of Vipers.

"Minivan" is a metaphor. But if you have more than one kid it will be a reality and just a fraction less exciting than driving a M3 with two baby seats.

Resistance is futile. Buy the van.
