Jay, I drove a '96 Viper Coupe from Detroit to Philadelphia in the rain. Surprisingly it was a very pleasant drive despite the fact that you did not want to give it too much throttle in first 4 gears in heavy rain. It climbed through the Pennsylvania mountains in 6th gear without any effort. It had none of the wind noise that you get in the roadster so it made driving quite pleasant. Of course the handling in the corners at speed was amazing. While I was down there I took the car across Smithbridge Road off route 52 north of Wilmington, Delaware. If you haven't been there before that is Andrew Wyeth country with beautifully paved, 17th century "cowpaths" that wind around throughout the majestically wooded hills. It is a very picturesque road but challenging at speed. I was very familiar with those roads as I grew up near there and had driven my Corvettes (a '62 C1 roadster, a '66 C2 roadster and a '65 C2 coupe - not owned all at the same time) across those roads many times. Of course the Viper handled those curves and dips beautifully and was a real joy. P.S. I didn't get to sign the fender of your car but I was involved in its creation. How Viper came to be is a great story all in itself.

David Vuchinski is scribbled inside the drivers rear tire, I did that to see who will keep the original tires on them.

I remember my junior year of high school (99-00) driving by a house with a ‘96 Viper exactly like this one parked outside. I got the Berber to go knock on the door. One 10 minute conversation later I learned the guy was visiting his mom (he was from Vegas) and I was going to skip band practice the next day to go get a ride in his Viper! Best ride I’ve ever taken!!!

Saw Leno cruising the local Mopar swap meet at Van Nuys in 1996....most guys just tipped their hat to the guy and let him look for parts. I gave him a head nod, he smiled and continued to shop. He fits right in with all us wrench heads. My favorite car? 1996 Viper GTS....

Man still in 2021 my Fascination about this car is unbroken. It still looks classy, menacing and stylish. It’s like u could buy it now. Car magazines in Germany at the time we’re not to critical about it. Most likely it was called a Monster for experienced drivers, which bites you when you overstep any limits. Nice Video

As a lifelong Metro Detroit resident who currently works in one of FCA’s powertrain plants, I can tell you that the Connor Assembly Plant was most definitely NOT the Packard Plant in Detroit. Fun fact about the plant I work in, even though FCA sold off their shares in Ferrari, there’s a small area in our facility that makes Ferrari V6 blocks. So, Ferrari blocks are manufactured right alongside the 3.2L and 3.6L Pentastar V6’s. My boss actually bought a newer Viper than this one for a surprisingly reasonable price, so if you’re into these you can snatch one up for under $50k.

Hey Jay! I know you from my group of the SRT-4 owners who saw you at a gas station in California- and you were such a solid guy. I really appreciate that! It's really impressive how down to earth you are. I now own a clean turbo NA miata (Had to have RWD after all the work I put into the Neon) and I still love how humble you are. I hope you and yours are doing well! Hopefully one day I can take a road trip back down there to tour your museum

The viper plant gave tours. Went on one in high school right after this car was delivered, they were so proud of that car. They built the Plymouth prowler in the same building. Big yellow bus field trips man those were the days. They had pictures of jay and i got to meet the people that signed his car in person as they were still building cars and the tour was up close shake hands touch the stuff close.

I think its stupid they had to stop making the viper because theyd have to reengineer the car to fit in side curtain airbags. The people that drive these dont care. How about this, if you dont think the cars safe enough, dont buy one!

Jay is so TOTALLY right vis a vis later edition modificatiions. Because the boffins can potentially add outer space unrepairable electronics does not mean that such are 'improvements'. Such is rarely the case. I am old enough to recall seriously beneficial improvements i.e. wipers, heaters, power steering etc. A raw basic Viper is immensely hard to improve on, bar R.H.D. Keep it coming Jay.
