Christmas came early for me last weekend! We went to Vegas for a long weekend & I got to drive a Viper (my dream car) for a day. I drove it with my wife through the Valley of Fire state park, the Hoover Dam, & around Vegas a bit. I had the time of my life...

  • I absolutely loved it! This was a case of meeting your heros & them exceeding your expectations.

    It was a 2014 SRT Viper (SRT trim), so I was a little worried about the ride because my wife has a herniated disc & it didn't have the GTS's adjustable suspension. But those seats provided such great lower lumbar support, she was fine & we were both comfortable. I was also afraid of the door sills being hot due to the side pipes. But it was in the 60's that day & the sills were just warm. Not a problem at all.

    I don't have much stick shift experience, but the Viper was surprisingly easy to drive. And I've never driven a supercar before.

    A 1996 Dodge Viper GTS coupe blue with white racing stripes has been my dream car ever since I was a boy. But after driving this, the 5th gen Viper might just be replacing it.
