2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10: Revisiting Its Birthplace

August 20, 2010

Earlier this week I got an invitation to visit Metalcrafters in Fountain Valley, CA, which is 45 miles from our Santa Monica office. I drove there in our long-term 2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10.

Why?

Heritage.

Our Very Orange Viper is one of the last of its kind, since Viper production stopped this summer. And the craftsmen at Metalcrafters built the very first Viper Concept for Dodge more than 20 years ago.

The Viper's homecoming was low key. No balloons. No marching bands. It was just me and the car celebrating its 20 year reignas America's supercar.
