Howdy folks! I am just days away from deciding which Gen 2 I will buy. I have owned all manner of great cars but this will be my first Viper. I sold my Porsche last year and Ive been slowly looking around for my next great car. I loved my Porsche. I liked my Vette, BMW, Mercedes, Ferrari. But this time I wanted something different.
My incredible wife supports all the ridiculous cars that I buy. But this time I wanted to buy a car with her comfort in mind, The 1971 Porsche was great on street and track but it was loud, stiff, not heat or AC. And after a 1500 mile rally you're ready to give it a good long rest and drive a fat Cadillac for a while. The Ferrari was an amazing driver but you feel like a bit of an asshole, especially in a small town. BMW and Mercedes tick all the boxes but don't have that eye popping look. I love to share my cars with people and part of that is being approachable to people that want to ask questions. I think the Viper will be that car that all types of people will like without the baggage that many other cars come with.
I hope I'm not wrong, lol.
I'll have lots of questions so I hope this group will guide me through the beginning of this adventure.
Thanks

Good luck with that. Maybe a GenV but not even that.
Call me when you are forced to sell.
I should have said "more comfortable", lol. My Porsche was stiff, no heat or AC and LOUD. I have photos of her sitting on a pillow and wrapped in blankets strapped into a 5 point harness and wearing my gun range ears. Hee Hee

I’ve never considered wifey comfort in any toy vehicles. She’ll typically ride in one once & never again. One never made it 100’ down the driveway. Of course a hot August afternoon in nasty big block Cuda’. “Stop!!!! This things a death trap”. *climbs out.

Of course I’m just a selfish prick that looks after her every want & need, except when it comes to my vehicles.

Wemens are like vehicles right? Some built for speed, others comfort. Very few can check both boxes.

I'd never buy a car based on my wife's comfort. Fuck, not even my own comfort. If I wanna jam my fat ass in a mini Cooper I would.
