Before you got your Viper what performance car did you or do you own? I have owend 5 vettes - love vettes but the Viper is truly something that is unique - you see 40 vettes for every one Viper and I love the way they are a challenge to own and drive - for those coming out of vettes what compelled you to switch or add the Viper? As I mentioned before in April 05 I am purchasing a Red SRT 10 - I still may keep my C6 Vette but I want the Viper - not buying now as I live in the North East and with bad weather heading our way soon seems silly to let it sit in the garage. Thanks!

Still own it '91 Miata BRG-SE(British racing green-special edition, only 4000 made), supercharged(8psi), full suspension work, roll bar and much more. on small road course like Waterford hills road racing, the car has no problem keeping up w/ M3, 911's, S2000, Vettes and other much more powerful and expensive cars. car is only 2300 lbs,(stock 96 rwhp) as car sits now (160-170 rwhp). quite the sleeper car looks completely stock except for the roll bar. Oh yeah and a '86 honda CRX-Si

wrong wrong, the Red Cobra is gone, no one told you, oops.
It WAS an awesome and fast car, it WAS. No one saw the ditch with the large concrete wall but not to worry you can still tell that it WAS a Cobra. We were going to donate it to the local fire dept. to bring to the different schools and show the kids what happens when you barrow something that you shouldn't have. lol

'02 Vette and damn near killed myself in the snake before I got smart and ordered Kumhos to keep the rear planted!

Before that, I had some modest-performance cars, like Bimmers and such, but nothing hard core.
