    Default This might be it! South Carolina Members lend a hand?

    Dodge : Viper : eBay Motors (item 330398940107 end time Feb-01-10 13:40:01 PST)

    I've been in communication with this guy and am leaning towards the next step of going to take a look at it.

    A few things, The decals on the dash are going to have to go with no markings left behind. I was looking at the exhaust and it appears a little off. That's sticking out too much to be a stock exhaust, no? The wing... well, we'll see how I feel about it. And the mileage is a huge thought for me. Is there anything to worry about more on these cars at high mileage than any other car?? I'm excited. I was going to take a trip snowboarding this weekend but I wouldn't object to going someplace warmer. Pro: The price seems awesome, and I saw a Viper today and drooled. I want that feeling EVERYDAY.

    Lastly, is there anyone from South Carolina near the charleston area that wouldn't mind messaging me and stopping by if possible?

    Thanks guys!
    Justin.

    Car looks great and I think you've noticed some minor concerns. Forgetting the "look" of dash decals, they are especially dangerous if ever the airbag is deployed. Can't think of anything I'd enjoy more than being a passenger in a front end collision .... except a front end collision that included having a Viper emblem implanted in my face!

    Don't be too concerned with the mileage unless you plan to park the car in your garage for some fantasy resale. If you plan to drive the car, you're probably better off with a high mileage car than a 4 year old car that 1/4 seized.

    Good luck!

    Justin,

    I Hope you get in a car soon. Believe me, it's like a dream come true! It'll be great to add another Viper to the Northern VA community!

    I know you've been looking for awhile. Best of luck!

    I feel like I keep saying "oh this is it" or "i finally found it" but if any of you can blame me for being picky, :-p on you!

    Nice car, except for the dash emblems and wing. What kind of exhaust is that?

    He said it was on the car when he bought it, and that it doesn't sound too loud.

    Tires can also be a major immediate expense. Check those.

    NoVa,
    Where's the car, exactly? The ad says Columbia, but that phone # has an area code for the southern/coastal part of SC.

    Mileage does not bother me. These cars will last forever if taken care of

    Black is so underrated! There was a black gen 3 (i think) vert in chantilly today. What a beautiful car!

    Wild, I'm trying to get that information from the seller. I'll keep ya up to date.

    Edit: The car is in columbia and the car is available to be seen most night after 5.

    Wing looks ugly.
    Exhaust tips sticks out = aftermarket.
    Old tires?
    Whoever put the Viper signs on the dash board is a .... please fill in any 4 letter word you know ...make sure you have the car on a lift and check out the underside!

    Exhaust wouldn't bother me, dash decals would. I'm not a "wing man" but that one isn't that objectionable (I think it's the black color-it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb the way it would in another color or with stripes). That generation Viper is the most "user friendly" as a daily driver. She should have a ton of miles left in her. Relatively fresh tires a must. Have a Viper tech. say grace over her. Good Luck and have a ball.

    Who ever owns that car sure as heck drove it. 65,000 miles on an 06! I have 26,000 on my 2007 daily driver and its not even a Viper.

    I looked at the VHR on the ebay and it looks odd. 67k miles and there's nothing on it since 4 miles. Can anyone else look at a report for VIN:1B3JZ69Z36V100847 and see any more information about it?

    Thanks!! I can't wait to be a member.

    well, special thanks goes out to Bill (wildasp) for taking a look at the car and giving me tons of valuable information on Vipers.

    Looks like someone reached out and bought the car out from underneath me. I can't complain too much, he was on a timeline that I couldn't meet. There will always be another car out there, and I still have the funds sooooo... who's up for the next round.

    The car looked really good, inside and out; had been garage-kept, and apparently very well taken care of. Previous owner in FL apparently put most of the mileage on it. Engine sounded good, driveline smooth, no squeaks or rattles. I've seen cars with half the mileage that didn't look as good.

    WOW sounds like a steal for sure for someone buying it to drive it and enjoy it. Maybe I should have jumped on her myself. Of course I am still waiting on my title to come in so I can settle with insurance on mine.

    I found this odd... The same car was posted in the same city by a user with a score of 0. What am I missing here people? I was told the reason I couldn't buy the car was because it was sold to a guy in Jersey.

    Dodge : Viper : eBay Motors (item 250597127272 end time Mar-21-10 13:55:00 PDT)

    Can someone email this individual for me and just put a feeler out there?? If it's the same guy, I wonder why he's using a different name, else, I wonder if this is a scam now. I'd buy this car in a quick minute if it was real.
