Why the Viper? I fell in love with the car when my orthodontist John Grady, bought one of the first cars in Pennsylvania back in ‘94. It was a Yellow RT/10. I used to wash and wax it every day. It was my motivation to grow up and be successful. John even used to let me drive the car to high school. I always told him that someday I would have one of my own.
I bought my first Viper when I was 25. I’ve since owned seven, but never one longer than a year or so. This particular car is the most sought-after year because of the 708 cam and power mirror option. This was the last year these cars had forged pistons. A forged car can be easily taken up to 800hp with a blower. In the following year, they changed the car to cast internals, removed the cam…and the car became known as a “cream puff”. Any Viper guy will tell you that if you want to buy a Viper and take it to the next level, the ‘99 is the only way to go. This car is for sale as we speak. There’s nothing like the torque of a V-10. The best part about this car—you can hear it comin’ a mile away.
