No Car, had the white Dakota. Been hunting vipers for a while just not sure how the insurance rates are going to be considering I'm 23. Plus the responsible side of me says to buy a house before dumping a bunch of $$$ into a diminishing investment.

OK, I remember you, I thought you were part of John's Group. Insurance is a problem here in SoCal, had a hard time finding any company to insure it, and I am 37 with no tickets and married. Finally found Safeco, and it running about $2K/yr.

If I was part of Johns group I don't think I would be standing around, more of roosting up the 405 at arrest me speeds /images/graemlins/smiles

Insurance is a big problem out here, heck it's like $1200/yr on my truck, I can only imagine what a viper will cost. I really want one but at this time it's just not worth it with all the cost involved on top of the car.

If you need anyone to keep your car company while your foot heals let me know, I think I can work it in my schedule :nod:

How did you break it? I compund fractured my right tib/fib a few years ago, man did that suck. After having some knee surgery and a steel rod in the tib I was back in action. Hope yours goes much easier that mine.

Mine has been 2 1/2 months now, 2 months since surgery to place screws and plates to realign the calcaneous.

My maintenance costs have been close to zero, car has been pretty reliable. Thanks for the offer to keep my car company, I just saw the doctor this morning and got the green light to start putting weight on my foot again.

If you ever want a drive, just let me know.

01BEE & mxblue23 - there will be a few of us heading out to California Dragway (Fontana CA) this Saturday, July 17th. If you don't mind the large crowd and waiting around, this track is a lot better than Carlsbad in so many ways. 'hope you guys can make it.

better than c-bad, bah blasphemy... you mean no dirt road, chunks of pavement missing from the water box, and what not. LOL I will do my best to roll out, I love just watching awesome cars pushed to their fullest potential.

Would any of you guys be interested in a dakota/viper shoot out? I'm dead serious, there are plenty of fast trucks around and a few that will run with the blower/turbo cars /images/graemlins/smiles

01BEE - there's at least a couple of us there everytime there is a Street Legal drags. You can check out the schedule at www.californiaspeedway.com (dragway section). Next schedule after this Saturday is July 31st.

mxblue23 - all of the above you mentioned, and I've been told about the "fictitious" ET & mph. No wonder I ran a lot better at Carlsbad the first/last time I went. Bring on the Dakota's, but you may have to fall in line as everyone wants to race a Viper. It's amazing how the Viper usually becomes the measuring stick, but we all know there's always someone faster (most likely not a Viper).

Yes there is always someone faster, I know quite a few guys with blown daks who want to line up with a viper just for comparison sake. Even if the truck wins in the end it's still just a truck and will never compare to a viper. If scott gets his 427 swaped in he will probably be at fontana shortly.
