Say goodbye to the VIPER!!!!
 
This is pretty much an update of the last post I put up...But to me a little more heartbreaking as the VIPER is in its last year of production:smiledown:

Sad to see the Caliber go. Those are cute little buggers! I rarely saw a Viper on the road so that doesn't surprise me.

Hopefully it will return . Maybe better and faster .

It did say a possible return in 2013, but I'm shocked that the viper is going bye bye. It's been Dodge's fore-runner in high end performance for a long time now. I see as many of them as I do the GT-500s, and they were never meant to be a high production level vehicle.

Yeah, ive seen two vipers in my area since ive lived here(5years)...And they are the same ones cuz I recognize the weired license plates they each have, and the roll past my shop daily...And Ive seen one GT500 too, so yeah its not like they are doing bad in sales, its just that they are not a highly purchased vehicle and not worth making at this troublesome time in Chrysler, Dodge(if there is such a thing of not worth makeing a VIPER..)

I saw this yesterday on CNN over here. I knew this was coming. Several months back; I seen on Auto Insider in the Detroit Free press that Saleen was looking at aquiring the VIPER. I'll take a look in their archives and see if I can post the link here. Thanks for the link in the starting thread.

I'd be very sad to see the viper go anywhere but dodge. If I had 150K i'd be driving one... but I can justify spending my annual wage on a vehicle I could only drive 6 months of the year... not to mention the insurance... thank god I'm now 26 and no longer in the 'high-risk' bracket.

Almost bought a Viper coupe (blue with white stripes 13,000 miles on it ) instead of my truck . Doctor owned it , all the windows got smashed out of it . Didn't want it anymore . Made a deal with the used car lot to see it for him . Looked at it . Asking $50,000 . Wifey gave me one of those looks . You know that look . Ended up buying my truck . Lot sold the car for $35,000 . Young kid bought it . Ran the ever living snot out of it . Haven't seen it in years . I've been told it's sitting at his house in the garage . May have lost his license or can't afford to buy tires for it . Would love to find it . I would buy it from him and then I would be the one running the ever living snot out of it .

That really sucks! I hope the new Chrysler comes up with something similar, or better for that matter.
