    Viper is grounded until new tires arrive

    Original tires (date-stamped Oct 1996) are so bad that I wont even drive car to check mailbox.
    The earliest delivery date from Michelin for Pilots is over a month out.
    My other ride is getting more use than ever now:

    1-HP Electric-powered trike.
    Maybe I'll add two white pinstripes down the center of frame?

    Did I miss your call for 17" Viper tires?

    23+ year old tires not as surprising as someone actually admitting they'd be seen riding on that thing.

    Indeed...I hear that from time to time. :-)
    I never have had a need to prop up my manhood with my ride. ;-)
    So the trike gets a spot in the garage right next to the GTS and '63 C2 coupe.
    Most other traffic cant keep up (my play grounds are the local golf-cart lanes and paved bike paths)! :-D
    I live in a planned/gated community with miles of golf-cart lanes and over 100 miles of paved bike lanes which I can pick up right outside my door.
    PS: not many Vipers here (I'm the only one!), but a TON (over 100?...they have their own club) C6/C7 vettes.

    So time to join us at VOA and you can be our personal representative showing what really successful folks own in a gated community , ha,ha. It has always been fun to pull into a parking lot with a Viper and watch the throngs gravitate over ! Since there are only a bit over 32,000 hand built Vipers ever made , it definitely is a rare serpent. In fact, that is about the normal number of Vettes built every year, so if you feel special it's because you are !!!!!!

    those tires were already considered shot in 2006

    find the chrome G5 rattler wheels so you can get modern tire selection and maintain the look

    The little-brown-truck just delivered 4 spanking new 17" tires!
    Trike gets grounded once I get tires mounted up!
