    Just bought a GTS out in Oregon

    Hey everybody. I am proud to say I am now the owner of a 2000 Steel Gray GTS. I have had a few different performance cars before this including a 2000 Trans Am, 1999 SVT Lightning, 2003 C5Z, 2014 Evo X, among others. This is by far the coolest of the bunch. This has been a life goal I've been working towards for about 10 years. I can't believe I get to call this car my own. I'll link the for-sale ad since I haven't even had the car delivered from Oregon to Houston yet to take my own pics.

    I was able to negotiate the price some as well as get some great spare parts thrown in on the deal. Comes with spare striker cylinder heads and a Roe supercharger kit haha.

    The previous owner took great care of the car and kept excellent records of the upgrades. It has about $50k in receipts. Have to give him props. If anyone knows some of the history on the car, feel free to share!

    Nice car, welcome to the forums. Lots of information here, check out the How to guides. Hook up with your local region for fun times ahead, the cars are one thing but the club members take ownership to a different level from other clubs.

    Be sure to post up more pics when you get the car Delivered.

    From IRA A. in PORT ORFORD!

    Claims ''Westernmost attached land-mass of Contiguous 48 states.''

    I love the SGP color.

    Trivia: Did you know there is / was a WWII decommissioned airport in Port O that served as a race track? Back in the Hay-Bales era, I raced a Datsun 510 there...and also did Pace Car work in my Viper for the last-ever race, back in 1996. I dont think Ira ever drove there, but he did do a couple of tame parade laps at Portland....PIR

    WELCOME

    Thanks for the welcoming words! USAFPILOT, we will have to meet up. I am on your side of town. 290 and Beltway.

    And yes, this is Ira's car! I'm glad you know him. Interesting Port Orford factoids too. The town had a nice vibe to it when I was there. I almost feel bad about taking the Viper out of it's beautiful natural habitat with smooth windy roads.

    Welcome, Great color I had one just like it only with stripes. I even purchased it from someone in Oregon.

    Wonderfull car but be careful the crank snout is the weak point if your thinking of installing that supercharger.

    Don't ask me how I know.lol
