    Default Vipers per state

    A couple of years ago Viper magazine put out a map (center page) of the U.S. with total numbers of Vipers in each state. I would like to see them do that again (a kind of update). I guess there must be a way to do that through each state's Department of Motor Vehicles. I realize, at best, that can only be a close approximation because people are buying and selling their cars daily.

    I was just thinking about that last night, wondering how ownership broke down by state. We are thinking of moving back to Alaska and I was curious how many fellow Viper owners are up there... Take care. Jeff

    I wondered the same thing a while ago so I started a google map I have not flattened out the map yet, so we can still add to it. there are 2 pages so far. This is a private map, so you have to have the link to access the page. Check it out

    The map that Viper magazine published in the past does two things, 1 gives an idea how many Vipers are in a state and 2 helps identify how many members are in that region.

    The President's of each region usually get a copy of that information at the President's meeting. (It is at a snap shot in time.)

    The only issue with the report is the data is (or at least was) collected by VINs based on them being serviced or sold by a dealership in the state. So if you brought a car in for service but then sold it to someone in a different state, it may still show up in your state or potentially could be double counted.

    If it is of interest and you can't locate it send me a PM and I will try and find and scan the latest copy that I can locate.

    I think since they are all listed as so cal viper, that it is actually a code for all the hooters locations for when Chad comes to visit Southern California he will know where to stop.

    I don't want to have to create a Google account to drop a pin. Can you put one in Chattanooga, TN for me?
    I know of at least 5 others here as well. More and more seem to be popping up in the area.

    I've been to CA twice in the past year. Hooters is definitely more of a east coast thing. They're all over the place out here in GA, in CA, you actually have to go looking for them. With Hooters HQ in Atlanta, I guess it makes sense. With that said, I can think of at least 6 different ones I went to while I was out in CA. Thanks to Lance, Aaron and Paul, whenever I met up with them, they already knew where the nearest Hooters was and had planned dinner there. The others I found on my own

    Don't sweat it! It took me like 3-4 attempts before I got it . Ask Kala to drop one for you.
    Probably better to send pm in case it gets overlooked here.
