I will pay someone around my area Houston/Clearlake to give me a ride in their Viper. I went down to rent one for my last (22nd) birthday but, you have to be 23 ([email protected] the bad luck!). So, if someone would be kind enough, I would greatly appreciate it. Like I said, I will pay you or you could do it for free, either way is cool with me. ;)


By the way, IM SERIOUS!

It was my first time in a casino and MAN WAS IT PACKED!! lol...

Austin

Thanks for the offer Cabo! I wish I could make it out there. Never been to Cali before. Hows the weather there? Is it really always 75-80 degrees? I wish we had that kind of weather here in Texas. Oh well, just makes us get in the water more. lol...

austin, you shouldnt have to pay! have you gone to RSI and taken a look around? i bet they might have a customer that would take you around for free....

06-01-2003, 08:48 AM
$100??? You shouldn't have to pay for a ride. I've given lotsa rides for nothing. The next time you see a Viper ask the owner for a ride.

06-01-2003, 11:47 AM
I just read your post, I've been doing tax crap all weekend! I will give you a ride, no problem. Like everyone said "You should'nt have to pay for a ride in a viper". I would be happy to.
Beware- After a ride you will have to get one!
Email me when you get a chance.

Austin...

You'll have to tell me what you think of the ride when you're done! I've never been in a Viper either, and I most definitely can't afford one! There are a few people around me that have Vipers (one of them is my girlfriend's friend), but they all seem to be jerks or something...at least the ones I've talked to. I complimented on a Viper at the gas station last week and the owners said something along the lines of "In your dreams...you actually have to WORK to afford one of these!". I was on the job (I drive for Kinko's...not a high paying job), but I still thought it was a bit rude.

Anyway, I hope you have fun Austin!

"In your dreams...you actually have to WORK to afford one of these!"



Whoever said that had life handed to him more than he knows.

Besides, a Viper is rare but it isn't beyond your reach. The fact that it is an attainable dream is part of its allure.

Nicely put, Chuck.

You can achieve anything you want, JGViperGTS.

If you can conceive it you can achieve it good buddy - if that's your dream - just don't give it up - stick at something that will eventually get you there - inch by inch it's a cinch ;) Don't let anyone tell you "you can't".

JGViperGTS- I will let you know how the ride is. Sorry to hear about the rude @ss Viper owner. I ran into a rude owner once and I about cursed him out. You have a nice car, share it with others! Every time I see a Viper, I get this feeling that I cant explain. I have seen pretty much every car out there at least once and NONE of them have ever made me feel the way I do about the Viper. I hope you get your Viper soon and I hope I get mine as well. lol... :D


CajunViper- I was told that I could get the ride this weekend but, it looks like it may rain. :( I tried to call the # but, it said it was a wrong # or something to that extent. 281 prefix is here where I live unless where you are has the same one? :confused:

Austin,
I have been in New Orleans since monday for a product show. This rain is nice to have for the lawn, but I hope it is nice this weekend. I will check to see if the Houston Viper/Prowler cruise down to Galveston is still on. If it gets postphoned, I am sure one morning this weekend it will be dry enough for a little frolicking around. My cell # is 832-435-9482

Andy

Austin
06-05-2003, 12:34 PM
Andy- Yeah I hope that its nice this weekend. I know what you mean about the rain, we do need it. As long as it rains today and then quits Friday and Saturday, its all good. lol... If it is post-poned, please let me know. Have fun in New Orleans? Never been there but I have heard its one crazy place. ;)

Austin,
Viper owners love to share the passion they have for their car with other car enthusiasts.
That is part of the pleasure of owning these cars. I would like to think that members of this club would be more than willing to take you out for a ride, never looking for anything in return, other than the sheer pleasure it will bring you.
Good luck, if you are ever in New York I'll take you.:)

CajunViper

Viperess, I have him lined up for this saturaday. At no charge.

Dean

Austin
06-05-2003, 03:13 PM
VIPERESS- I agree with your statement. I have meet some rude exotic car owners (one being a Viper owner). I know that if I owned a Viper I would be open to taking anyone for a ride. I mean, it could be their dream car (just like its mine) and that ride could give them that extra boost they may need to make that dream come true of owning a Viper. By the way, hows that pesky neighbor of yours VIPERESS? I remember you talking about he doesnt like your Viper and that he was inquiring about the car that some guy was driving that had stopped by your house while you were gone. Ever find out what kind of car it was? lol... I would also like to say that I think it so AWESOME that women are out there driving and owning these BEAUTIFUL machines/vehicles (works of art). Dont know if I should say this or not but, its actually very attractive. :D If Im ever in NY I wouldnt mind seeing the GTS. You'll have to show me how fast that thing is (sorry, I had to throw that in there, I know Viper owners dislike that question, "How fast does it go?"). lol...

Heh Austin looks like you and me are in the same boat...
I've been blessed with the snake obsession ever since the GTS hit the market...I'm only 18 so it's a little bit of time before my dreams become a reality, although if there is one thing the viper does to me, it's keep me going in life! Every time i see one in person it hits me like an earthquake...and for the next 3 weeks all I can THINK about is the future and the day that I will own one. Actually today coming home from work I saw a red RT with yellow wheels and emblems! he was obviously just passing through the city, there was some sort of luggage strap on the trunk lid. anyway you said you've never been in a viper? Well that's almost true for me as well, but I've had the pleasure of one ride already! it was a red/silver ACR (Molson Indy Pace-Car) No other day has effected my life so greatly as that day :D

there wouldn't happen to be any owners in calgary willing to put a 5 mile smile on my face would there??? c'mon I know theres ATLEAST 4 in the city that i see quite often....(us canadians got like 8% of the vipers you americans did)

Austin
06-06-2003, 12:38 PM
SnakeDreamer- Spill the beans, how was the ride?! lol... I simply can NOT wait until tomorrow. Im even getting nervous or am I just anxious? lol... I will let you know how the ride(s) was (were). Im getting to ride in an RT, SRT and a GTS (if someone lets me). :D My first time to ever ride in a Viper and I will get to ride in all 3 models! I will be taking pics and and posting if anyone would like to see?


Austin

SnakeDreamer
06-08-2003, 02:44 AM
i would absolutely love to see the pics! we just got our new scanner so i'll post some pics of my ride (by the way....it...was...incredible!!) one downside though...it was a TOTAL ACR job, meaning it had the roll bar/fire extinguishers....and stripped interior! that was the ONLY bad part of the ride. The lady driving it was a racer, but MAN did she ever have trouble putting the viper in reverse! she had to like SMASH the stick forward to get it in!

how was your ride anyway? you probobly got to "indulge" alot more than i did...mine lasted a whole 3 mins!

Austin
06-08-2003, 02:30 PM
SnakeDreamer- Well, the ride was AWESOME! It lasted about 10 minutes. Andy got on it a few times and man, it just threw me back in my seat. He has an RT and the top was off, so I could see everyone staring at us. lol... It was cool to see everyone look at you like your a million bucks. lol... I have been set on wanting a GTS but, after the RT ride, Im not so sure now. I guess I will have to ride in a GTS now :D . There were 2 SRT's there, 1 red and 1 black. The black one was done up by H M S. He was actually there and I didnt recognize who he was. I asked him if he was hired to take pics of the gathering. lol... Pictures do NO justice for the SRT but, I still like the GEN 1 and GEN 2's better though. Im picking my pics up at 3:00, so I will be posting them later on this afternoon, so LOOK FOR THE POST! lol...
