looks coooool. 500+ hp and torque. No one can drive it though. I couldnt if I wanted to. my shin hits the molding before I can push the cluth all the way in.

we also have some srt-4's coming in, turbo neons that do 0-60 in 5.4 sec. not bad for a car under 20 grand.

man, he must have high expectations. the thing is a road racer out of the box. for 125 grand he can buy the racer version, but it is not street legal. we have a corvet also but the thrill just isnt the same,

the thrill of a corvette just isn't the same? I will go for a covette over a viper just cause the heritage. I have a video of a corvette and viper racing from car and driver or something and it is very close, the viper gets to 60mpg less than a half second faster and the corvette has a higher top speed. vette- 45,000 viper- 80,000. I would take 2 vettes, especially a 69 big block convertable.. can't even find a 69 viper. LOL. Don't get me wrong here, a viper is a nice a$$ car but I would just prefer a Corvette.

they also have an srt-10 viper pickup. with a top speed close to the car, the car is suppose to be close to 160 out of the box.

Trust me a corvette is more than enough for the everyday driver.
Here is my 95 (sold last year)

Very impressive #'s for a pickup truck. I think the styling is something to be desired. It looks as though all the proportions are over-exagerated in every dimension of it's components: wheels, spoiler, HUGE front facia. I looks sporty, but i personally don't like the look of it.....although, the black one isn't too bad.

Wouldn't a 500 HP truck be better off pulling a big trailer? Funny how the biggest engine is in a truck with the smallest towing capacity...LOL! Correct me if i'm wrong.

Anyone notice how F-ing long that shifter is? Must have about 6" throw between gears. So much for shifting fast. I bet you'll break it pretty quick.
