Owning this car is awesome if you want to have a real race car and get tons of attention. People of all ages love to see the car and do double takes and stare. How many Corvettes do you see daily and how many Vipers in a year? There simply is nothing that looks like a first generation Viper. Gas mileage is surprisingly good for a car with this much power, 22 hwy averaging 70 MPH. All the book values are way under priced as you will never see a Viper selling as low as they say, they are appreciating in value as the first generation becomes even rarer. Everyone asks: did you drive it last weekend, did you take it out from winter storage yet, hows the Viper?
Style style style! Power in every gear! Sound of exhaust and look of side pipes. Fun factor. Waves, stares, double takes, peace signs, thumbs up, smiles, crowds of people checking out the car. Driving curvy scenic roads.
Better solutions for the side window curtains and top, especially a solution that doesn't leak if caught in the rain.
