    Long time fan first time owner

    Hello all, glad to finally join the Viper Club!

    I have owned about 12 Corvettes in my life, and finally found a Viper that would work in my life/budget.
    Here is my 2013 SRT Coupe! I just put the HRE Wheels on it, thinking about an exhaust or maybe full bolt-ons as well.

    Having multiple vettes, this car is a complete different animal in its own class. I don't think I can compare it to a Corvette, it falls in it's own category.
    Corvettes definitely are a little more refine, BUT I love the raw animalistic, and "exotic-ness" of the Viper. That being said, it has been a dream car of mine and I'm glad to finally have one!

    Congrats on the new Viper. It's a beauty. As a long time Vette guy, I wish I had bought a Viper sooner. Both great cars. Nice C6 and C7 ZR1's too.

    Now that's how you make a first post.

    You have great taste in cars and the wheels that go on them.

    Thank you all, just getting back on! Love the warm welcome

    Welcome and congratulations. Now you stand out in the crowd versus blending in. Vettes drive by and no one pays attention. A Viper drives by and rubber necking ensues... also long conversations at gas stations.
