    Comp Blue TA2 headed to South Florida

    IMG_0467 (1).jpg
    It is with very mixed emotions that I part with this wonderful car. I'm very sad that at the later stages of my life I won't probably own another Viper. At 68 years old I have a leg that I broke in nine places 22 years ago and it is getting to the point that it is a major undertaking to get in and out of the car.
    I have never had a car that was such a joy to drive. both on the street and on the track. The track was absolutely the best.
    Better than the car were the people I met from Viper Nation. The Carolina's chapter is the best and I don't want to not mention the great people I met at Tail of the Dragon bucket list events.

    The car was bought by a great guy from the Ft Lauderdale area. I have encouraged him to join the VOA as I think he would be a great contributor.

    For those Viper price guys, my car sold for just under the asking price.

    Sorry for the circumstances. Never would've guess you were 68 either! I'd say you'd always be welcome at the ToD, Viper or not.

    Congratulations to both you and the new owner! It sounded like a really nicely modded car for both street and track enjoyment. I was hoping to meet you and see it on the drive to or from NVE4.

    Lots of appealing rides that are a lot easier to get in and out of so I suspect you'll be enjoying something nice. All the best...and don't be a stranger!
