The '99 is so sweet. Leave for work early just to get some seat time in.

Nice Viper, blue w/ white stripe hardtops are my favorite. I was eyeballing a twin turbo one at a local meet last weekend.

Are those RPF-1's on the 99, or knockoffs?

No, they are real RPF-1's. I put them on the 90 before I gave it to my friend to drive during the summer and put the 16's from the 90 on my 99. Damn those Rpf-1's are light.

No the motorhome belongs to the guy I bought it from in Cali. That was the day I picked it up. He bought a MSM.

**** some guys claim 24 mpg on the highway and I believe them. In 6th gear at 75 you're only hittin about 1600 rpm!!!! Stock Vipers have 3:07s in the rear ends. I get 12-13 around town.

No, it's Mike Bs old car. He lives in Castro Valley, CA. He was the 2nd owner though. Don't know who the first was.
