    Proof Photo Posted Viper's 2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10 (A 17+ Year Dream Come True!)

    Yes, I finally bought my dream car! No proper proof picture yet (I'll do that this weekend) but I know all of the IRC folks are clammering for pictures so I'm making the thread early.

    I spent pretty much all day today driving it. Put roughly 70 miles on it (barely any freeway) and used half a tank (aka ~7 gallons) worth of gas. Glug glug.

    And here's a picture showing rear tire width vs. my iPhone 4. Tires are 275/35-18 in the front and 345/30-19 in the rear. That's 13 inches wide!

    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

    Congrats! Been waiting a while to see this.


      Finally, a truly appropriate use of this:

      Congrats on living the dream.

      Edit: Just watched the video, I like how you are sitting the car like you belong, with the arm on the sill, like a boss

                  Congratulations dude. Lots of hard work paid off for you. I hope you have many happy hours driving it. Keep this thing from being wrapped around a pole... PLEASE!

                    I wasn't paying much attention in IRC, so I thought you were just doing a track day in a viper, not that you had actually bought one!

                    Congrats, dude!

The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost.” ?

                                    I put 200km on my car in the first 2 days, none of it on a freeway, and it's only a Clio!

                                        Holy crap, that is a stunning car. Blue is definitely an under appreciated color for cars. Congrats!
