    Everything else is true... except the part about racing go-carts, I don't do that.

    And I guess technically that part about the steering wheel for my PS4 isn't true either, as matter of fact I don't even own Gran Turismo.

    On a positive note, there are a bunch of genuinely, good guy/gals on this forum that care about people, and that is awesome to see, I'm honored to be apart of the Viper community.

    I live about 14 min from Bondurant's and plan on attending a few of their courses, although I think the PS4/Gran Turismo combination may still be an option, lol.
    I think this forum might be better suited for you:

    A simple, "I'm new here and looking forward to meeting people...etc." will more than suffice. Many people here will not only recommend a good tech, they might even help you do the work free of charge. Though not if you start things off by making everyone think you are just here to mess with them.

    Good luck and please drive safely
    I think you're being a bit dramatic, but ok.

    He was probably so worked up from the first post, I don't think he was able to read the entire thread. Your sarcasm kills me though

    Noted, Steve M does suggest I go to a differnt forum. Also noted Steve M doesn't have a sense of humor and Vprbite is super sensitive. I'll adjust my sense of humor to accommodate both of your emotional needs. Lastly, FrgMstr seems like he may have an anger issue.

    First impressions are everything. Your approach backfired. Turning it around on us like we're the assholes isn't going to make this better.

    I didn't say or imply everyone on the forum is an asshole, in fact I said the complete opposite earlier in the thread. I'll even agree my initial intention of joking, missed its mark. However, I owned that fact already.

    And I'm not trying to make anything better, because so far as I can see only, about 3 of you were butt hurt by my post. 3 members of a forum do not constitute an entire group. So if you feel like an asshole, my guess is, it has more to do with you being one and nothing to do with my post.

    Why this thread exists is beyond my comprehension. To poison a well when the knowledge base here is so immense doesn't make sense. As our vehicles age out, this community will become more and more valuable. When a vehicle is out of commission and it is found out that parts aren't available, knowing the community, appreciating the knowledge base, and having relationships with those who may have an extra part or know the work around will prove to be invaluable. Or you can enjoy a great piece of garage art.

    My humble recommendation would be to delete the offending post and/or thread, apologize, and move on - never to see another POST on this thread.
    I absolutely agree, how do I delete the post from individuals that offended me, so we can all move on?

    I was being a smart ass, Viperenvy's implication was, that I was being offensive by poisoning the well and should apologize. My reply to that post was clearly contradictory to any burden of apologizing, but thanks for the advice grandpa.

    Everyone will always have their own way about approaching situations. It seems like the Viper community is a bit more mature than other car groups.. so trolling everyone probably isn't the best way...

    I think that Fatman 2006 just finished reading Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends & Influence People".
    Then again maybe not.

    Just read this thread. I actually bought a new Ford Escort GT in 1987 from Cowles FORD in Virginia. My first new car as a freshly minted 2ndLt in the USMC. I always wondered what happened to it after I sold it 6 months later heading to Okinawa Japan.

    Pretty funny how some people on here seem to think they need to be impressed by others first posts after all it's a public forum.

    On this forum as in the real world you will aways run into a few that think they are self-important.

    But what do I know and who really cares..........
    Solid advice man. It's good to see there are other Viper owners that have a chill mode, these dudes were ready to eat me alive for using humor.

    Thanks bro, I'm going to celebrate by making another thread, called "Thinking about doing an LS swap." Lol these guys would have a melt down!

    So you know what I mean when I say it would blow the doors off a Viper, lol. Coincidence, that's where I bought my 87 Escort GT, was yours white?

    Nope....a nice deep blue with the metal rear window louvers. I purchased it on a Sunday, parked it that evening in Parking Lot #14 at The Basic School (TBS), Monday we went to the field for training, and that night the wheels were stolen. I got dragged in by the MPs Tuesday for the investigation. Insurance fixed everything and I got some very nice aftermarket wheels/tires to go on it.

    Right on, your rims getting stolen was a bad situation, but insurance funded upgrades are always a win.

    I owned my gen 2 when i was 20, that was pushing 585bhp (with dyno sheet). I brought that with the money i sold my cobra kit car for (which i fully rebuilt to good spec). However i sold my viper for a deposit for my own place and ironically the guy i sold it to wrote it off and he was 45! Without trying to sound patronising just respect it and take it easy and you will love it and the attention you get in it lol

I was torn between a black/gold 1987 Firebird and a red Capri 5.0L, and when I told that to Dad, he straight up laughed in my face. I ended up with a 1971 Datsun 510 wagon, and the $200 paid was maybe a bit too much, but it was mine!

    This thread should be fun to watch, and thanks OP for bringing back a forgotten time for me. If your are being real, best of luck to you.
    Haha, this reminds me of when I was 16 and I had a pickup truck and while driving and my dad in the passenger seat we came up on a BMW 3 series. Amd I said "if I didn't drive a truck I think I'd have a BMW." And my father said "oh, would you now?" Basically just waiting for me to out 2 and 2 together that my parents had no intention of purchasing me a BMW and I was lucky to have the truck.

    The Internet, a keyboard, and a forum. Maturity doesn't stand a chance.
