    Yet another new Viper owner in Western PA

    Hi Everyone, Recently I had the opportunity to purchase a 2000 GTS ACR, and was able to finalize the deal a few weeks ago. It's been stored the past couple of years and only taken out once or twice during that time. It's a beautiful car but I am in the process of going through it for the peace of mind. So far I have replaced the battery, oil and filter change, replaced the weeping radiator (looked a lot like the one in BoostedMotorSport's YouTube video) and hoses with new silicone ones. I have been using the forum as a reference and it has been very helpful. I am looking forward to getting this thing out on the road and meeting up with other members. Seems as though there are a lot of Viper owners in my area. I would love to be able to make it to the PVGP but will need tires before that can happen. I understand Mr. JonB is the person to talk to when you need tires so I will have to send him a message. Happy/Grateful/Excited to be here as an owner now.

    Congratulations on a beautiful Viper! The Gen 2 ACRs are special for sure. We have an active region in PA, but with your location, Western Reserve may be the way to go as Bill mentioned. Hope to see you at an event this year!

    Congratulations and welcome! I am also a new owner from western PA. I grew up in the Lower Burrell / Kiski area, which is roughly 20 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. I'm in Bethel Park now. Hope to see you around!

    Yep, we grew up in the same general area. Small world. So much so that after reading through some older posts I am realizing I have bought another member's previous car.

    Thank you. I am actually from Johnstown, was just there a few weekends ago for Thunder in the Valley. I am trying to make it to PVGP but not sure if I will, too much going on this summer.

    ACR_GABOON,

    This is the only time Team Viper and two of the most historic GTS-R's are coming to you. The next event, if it ever happens like this again, will be days away - not an hour

    Trust me, it will be worth it.
