    I remember seeing this rampage parked in a driveway in Sandusky, OH for years and years not moving.

    Excellent transformation Jay!

    No doubt, trouble is, the only ballers we've got around at the moment are low ballers.... and they probably can't muster 6 or 7K, or Jay woulda heard from them.

    like Nemmy said, specialist auction...

    Or a customs audience...

    Sad part is, makes no sense to sell them separate because the car and trailer were made for each other. Literally. Have you put it on *gasp* ebay?

    The economy stinks. In about 2015 - 2020, the guys who were in their 20s when these cars were hot, will be in their 50s - 60s and maybe they will have the money to recapture their youth by buying them up. Thanks for posting the pics.

Thus the science of despotism, which was once so complex is simplified, and reduced . . . . to a single principle." -- Alexis de Tocqueville "One of the methods used by statists to destroy capitalism consists in establishing controls that tie a given industry hand and foot, making it unable to solve its problems, then declaring that freedom has failed and stronger controls are necessary." --Ayn Rand "To evolve, you don't need a Constitution. All you need is a legislature and a ballot box . . . . things will evolve as much as you want. All of these changes can come about democratically; you don't need a Constitution to do that and it's not the function of a Constitution to do that." -- Justice Antonin Scalia

    Yeah and they'll spend $2000 at the machine shop having authentic "Gus Valve"s recreated.... much like the $100K quests to recreate what a teenager in the 50s dragged out of someone's orchard and tried to make fast.

    Jay, sad to see your tired of the Turbo Dodge world, you've been a great President of our Buckeye Chapter. Im sure you will make the same big impact on the local Viper Club as you have with us. Sure you will be Pres. there in time as well. Hope you don't forget about your old turbo dodge guys, sad to see you selling it all and moving on to V-10's. Good Luck and stay in touch!

    First of all WHO said I was stepping down as Club President? Also I will not be president of any other car club. And the Viper is not the only car Im looking into so dont assume anything just yet. YOU DID NOT need to post this here, Now back to the main topic of this thread.
