Congrats Trinh!

If you are in Northern California, it would be great to see the car in person.

The last VCA Raffle car was picked up here in San Jose, and it looked great up close.

I won one-of-a-kind factory customized 2004 SRT-10 Dodge Viper in Race Yellow,
VIN number 0001 and retail price $115,995 (with $32,000 VCA Special Edition).

Sorry about the delay in response, but here is my story:
I wanted to buy a Viper for many years. I had never test drove any Vipers before I bought one.
I only saw it less than 10 times on the street but never had even touched one.
Early last year, I touched the first Viper ever (Spider man car, just a body with no engine) in
Universal Studio Theme Park so I decided to buy one. I wanted to buy a brand new red or black
2003 SRT-10 Viper but they all wanted more than $90,000 (for a used one!).
So I started looking for a new 2001 or 2002 GTS (ACR is optional).
In June 2003, I almost bought a 2001 yellow with black racing stripes Viper (about 3K mi) from
Mr. Marv Rose (a very nice man and also a VCA member, "dodgevipersforsale.com")
but I changed my mind and bought a brand new never titled 2002 Red ACR Dodge Viper
(Only 28 Red ACR Vipers made in 2002) from Mr. Don Wilson (Exotic Cars Inc. also a VCA member).
Mr Don Wilson bought the car from Town And Country Dodge in Michigan. I was very happy to own
this limited production Red ACR Viper. In August, I bought another brand new Silver 2003 SRT-10
Dodge Viper (VIN 1B3JR65Z03V501287) from "stcharlesmotorsports.com", but I changed
my mind because Silver color is not my first choice.
So I ask my car broker Mr. Don Wilson to sell it for me. I had it shipped to
him on a Saturday and he sold it on Monday! We made some money in the transaction.
I decided to join the club because I wanted to participate in events and I bought nine raffle
tickets (#1269-1278). It turned out that I only needed the first ticket to win (#1269)!
I could not believe it when I checked my email and voice mails from Ms. Kimberly Vogt
(Viper Headquater) who sent congratulations to me and confirmed my winning.
Later, Mr. Bill Pemberton from Woodhouse Chrysler in NE called me to arranged the delivery of
my new car. He told me two things I should know about this yellow Viper: it has a VIN
number "0001" and it is the most expensive street Viper ever built by the factory.
I contacted Mr. John Marlow and Mr. John Knowd from Turtle Click Dodge in Irvine about the
delivery of my new car. Kimberly shipped the new Viper to this dealer on Saturday November 8.
I was shock to see how beautiful it looks both exterior and the interior. All I said is
"Whow"! Kimberly also mailed me a photo album which showed the car being built, a big photo
of the car with the people at the Viper Head Quarter, two car covers (one with my name
embroiled on it), the car's window ticker in a big photo frame.
The Southern California VCA region president, Greg Baxter and The Secretary Malanie Baxter
were there to congratulate and take picture of me, my family and my new car.
I will post some pictures as soon as I figure how to do it.

I would like to thank Viper Club of America, Mr. Joseph Houss, Kim Vogt, Bill Pemberton,
Greg and Malanie Baxter, John Knowd and John Marlow for making my dream come true. And last
but not least, thanks to the people at Dodge for their hard working in
designing and building this beautiful Viper. I am sorry if I missed to mention any names.

All my friends knew that I always wanted to own a Yellow Viper with Black stripes. Unluckily,
I could not found one myself, but God gives me one much better than I could imagine! I will
treasure it for all my life.

Hi all,
Here is more of my story:
I love yellow vipers with black stripes but as you know, they did not make them in 2002 and 2003. That is why I almost bought a yellow 2001 GTS/ACR. But I bought the 2002 red GTS/ACR instead (because it was new) and was thinking about saving money for a new yellow Viper in the future. (I probably would try to buy one of the 50 yellow VCA Vipers if I did not win.) I heard about the yellow VCA raffle Viper when I joined the VCA. I wanted to spend one thousand dollars for the club and the membership fee is $100 so I bought 9 raffle tickets. I like number 9 because it is a lucky number for me. Anyway, I faxed the membership form together with the raffle order form. I called Kimberly Vogt a few weeks later about the raffle tickets and she said that she needed to process my membership first before she could process my tickets. I called a couple of time later to confirm that I got the tickets. I thought that because of the delay in processing of my membership, that it pushed my ticket range number further to 1269-1278. I never imagined that I would win but I did. Sometimes I wake up in the night and thought that did I win or I just dreamed about it. I was very lucky!
Here are the features of my car:
Year: 2004 SRT-10
The Vin: V100001
Retailed price $115,995 ($32,000 VCA Special Edition)
Race yellow with black stripes
Black lower rear valance
Polished exhaust tips
VCA logos on both sides of car
6 Points Teamtech seatbelt
All leather interior (everywhere) in 2 tones black/yellow
Yellow "Viper" letter embroiled on seats
Yellow stitched everywhere
Silver metal console
"VCA Special Edition" logo on console
Leather convertible cover boot
Big yellow emblem on the carpet in the trunk
2 car covers (one is embroiled "2004 VCA Raffle Winner Trinh Thai")
A big framed photo of the people at the Viper head quarter (I saw a white mamba Viper in the backgound. FYI, I received this in October 2003.)
Car's window sticker in a big photo frame
An album of more than 300 pictures showing the process of building the car
The car's brake calibers are black not red like other 2004s.
310 miles as of 06/10/04 (driven about once a month)
I also added some accessories on the car.

Here is the link to some photos

Hope you all enjoy it.
Thanks everyone!

As for your question. If you are a VCA member you can purchase tickets for VCA Raffles. They usually send things in the mail when they are doing raffles.

Fred,
Thanks! I also do not see many yellow/black stripes vipers on the street. Are you going to the SoCal picnic this Sunday 7/18. I will bring my SRT to this even instead of my red ACR. Hope to see you there.


F355,
As of today, it has 341 miles. That is included about 32 miles to the dealer for an oil change. I only drove it 8 times. I think it is a collectible car so I try to keep it as new as possible. It will have an additional 80 miles or so when I take it to the club's picnic this Sunday.

Joseph,
I cannot wait for the next raffle car. I heard it is beyond awesome!
