    I'm so jealous of this mileage. Another couple of years and I'll be an empty nester and then I'll shoot for 50K first and work my way to 100K.

    That's what I am talking about. Drive these cars for crying out loud that's why they made the darn things in the first place. That it if you can stiff afford the fuel.lol

    He still got $45,000 out of it.

    I can't wait to hear from the some of those people that mite say. Well if he would have just only put 100,000 miles on the car. He could have gotten maybe $55,000 for it in the end.

    I doff my hat to the seller of this vehicle.

    You just can't put a price on memories and I am sure he has plenty after 200,000 miles.

    OR, there are people that actually realize that driveway princess Vipers will have way greater issues than one that has demonstrated its reliability. I know on the forums that phenomenon is clear.

    Agree with Dave6666. Mine's been sitting and accumulating more problems than I care to post. I'm busy with a long running renovation project so all my oldies are taking a hit but I should be running the crap out of all of them in a couple of years.

    Couldn't agree more. Nothing I own is a low mile garage queen.

    Still surprised me how much he got for any car, much less a Viper, with 200k miles.

    Is that the highest mileage Viper?

    I think Chuck 98RT/10 may have him beat by 10-20k.

    This was really Great to see. I have worked on a few "Low mileage" Vipers, I would take my car over many of them, they may have pretty paint, but thats about it, most owners dont bother taking wheels off cleaning up suspension components and drivetrain, rusted bolts and fasteners, I will take a well maintained car with high mileage over a GARAGE QUEEN. 108,000 miles and counting on my baby.

    I have driven my GTS a minimum of once a week for its entire life. It has been wonderfully reliable. Cars that sit deteriorate:
    seals, gaskets, switches, relays, and rubber. Drive the cars; that is what they were designed for. Otherwise, they become buggy and miss the periodic calls to duty.

    Just cracked 135,000 on mine.
    First time ever hearing of a Viper with 200,000.
    There's way too much fun to be had in these cars.
    No way in hell I'm gonna keep mine parked.
    Definitely see myself adding another one to the garage in the next year or two.
