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. :lol:

Click for bigger. I especially like the first one. :)



Drove up the observatory at Mt. St. Helens with 73 other cars this weekend (mostly Challengers). Here's a good photo from the drive:



Great photos taken by a co-worker:

EDIT 03/24/12: Proper proof picture:

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!

My keys can beat up your keys. :p

Finally, a truly appropriate use of this: :jawdrop:

Congrats on living the dream. :D

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 :cool:

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! :thumbsup:

Now all you need to do is become a British secret agent and you can live up to your nick name. :p

I approve of this. Now just avoid people wanting you to do stupid things with it.

Congrats on finally realising a dream! SO MUCH WIN!

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

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