HELP!! I'm looking to buy a VIPER. from corvettes. any advice on what to look for

Hey guys, I have owned several vettes but every time I have seen a VIPER I go nuts. I want to buy one. This is a big jump for a vette guy. What should I look for in a 5-10 year old viper? SRT VS. GTS?? MILEAGE OR ISSUES?? basically, any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

just make sure you check the compression on each cylinder and get a good tech to check it out. i bought a 97 gts with a roe on it and it had a bad ring land and now i am going through the whole motor. not cheap. but i love the car

You probably won't get a lot of responses to this question as it has been beaten to death...

What is your price range?
Do you want mods? (supercharger / turbo?)

You need to decide if you want a SRT Vert / Coupe or GTS. We can't decide that for you. Once you decide on that... then that will lead to questions like - what color do you want? ABS? etc...

Lots of resources out there.

I think ABS only came on 2001 and newer.

I would ask yourself a few quesitons to get yourself in the ballpark.

1. Which body style do YOU like better Gen 2 or Gen 3. You HAVE to answer this.
2. Are you going to mod the car? You will save a ton of money buying a car that someone else has already put the mods into.

I would suggest spending alot of time over here and over at the VCA learning about the goods and the bads of these cars. Every question you have has been asked a thousand times and answered 10,000 back. Buy your car from a reputable member and that way you will know the history of the car.

Dude, this is the Alley. That is the way it is here. In here instead of walking up to someone and saying hello, it is more like "Fuck you asshole". VCA has a few more "rules", over here, it got to have hard skin, but they are all good people, except for a handful.

Learn who is good or bad. And if you really want a good tip listen to DevilDog for all of his investing wisdom.

I may be an asshole, but I am smart enough to learn the very BASICS on a given subject before I go on a forum and start asking questions. We are not here to spoon feed you. And, if you had looked at the link I posted and seen through my good natured, sparkling wit, you would have gotten a valuable resource with which to educate yourself.

By the way... Plum is a really nice guy.
