2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10: "Is that the new Viper?"

May 04, 2010

I was dead tired after the marathon photo shoot we did for the intro. I had packed the gear away into the trunk and I was set to make the 45 minute drive back to office. I hit the start button, the gorgeous sound of the engine filled the air and I checked my side view mirror to see if it was safe to pull out into the lane.

Right there was a dude on a bike just about to knock on my window. "Hey! Is that the new Viper?" he asked as I rolled down the window. "Yeah, this is the Swan Song of this beauty" I replied.

We chatted for a few minutes about the car. Since I was so tired I apologized and told him I had to get going. "Yeah, sure. Lemme hear her!" was his last request as I hit the engine hard, pitching out the butt a bit and screaming down the street, leaving Lance in a cloud of dust and smoke. I could barely make him out in my rear view mirror, fist pumping in joy.

Right there with you brother. This thing is BAD ASS.
