Ok that wasn't too hard. This is me with my 1997 Dodge Viper GTS. Currently is modified to about almost 800 hp and 900lbs of torque at the wheels. Not good on gas

Not good on gas? I wonder why?

Why was a statement about fuel economy mixed with a fact of 800hp and 900 ft-lbs ?

I wouldn't have cared whether it consumed fuel at a rate of 5 gallon/mile or 5 mile/gallon ...

Very nice! Out of all the Vipers made, I think that body style and paint scheme is the best. One of these days I'll have to pick one up.

Wow... some ppl just drive nice nice cars.
Great to see some classics restored and they look beautiful.

For some reason, I have never taken a pic of any of my cars but I guess the difference is that if I had some of the nice ones that were posted here, I imagine my stance would have been different and many photos would have been taken.

Currently I am trying to take out some swirls and scratches on my current car and once that's been done, I think I will take some pics and post them up.

I've driven one of these. Look great on the outside, pull like a freight-train, but interior leaves a little to be desired and the ride is very harsh. Still a great overall car. 800hp would be crazy.

Here are the current:
Definitely part of the Grayson family

(Graysons are the uber wealthy family on the TV show Revenge who just buy anything they want and drive and give away lots of cool cars. - It is the only TV show I have seen in the past 10 years I think).

LOL...oops! Totally missed that!

AND, we would be far from it! Our kids are still mourning cars we've sold and haven't passed onto them. No free rides in this household. Earn it and it could be yours!
