What's the consensus on total 2017 Viper production#s?  I've read 600-800?  And how many are Tomball, Woodhouse and Roanoke picking up?

Looks like he was a passenger in a Carrera GT.  Hard to hear about all auto accidents like this.

Upcoming Events / 2014 SoCal Viper Club Member Renewal
« on: November 06, 2013, 12:04:32 AM »
I just used the link pasted below to renew my membership for 2014.
http://socalviper.com/events/2014membership-renewal/

We are living in interesting times.

In light of the uncertainty regarding the future of the Viper Club of America, the newly formed Viper Owners Association and SRT support, I choose So Cal Viper, and all of you who I've had the pleasure of meeting over the past 6 years.

I'm butchering Mark Twain, but "Loyalty to Viper Always, loyalty to the Government when it deserves it."

thanks, stepping off my soapbox now,
Mike

Prefacing this post… I don’t get to spend as much time as I’d like with the car or the club members.  When I learned that a friend of mine was planning on having his bachelor party in San Luis Obispo (a bit unconventional, but hey, his choice), I immediately thought, Viper road trip.  What follows is a brief photo journal of the weekend, where I imagined I was sharing the open roads and fun in spirit with other SoCal members and enthusiasts.  Enjoy.
   



The route was CA-33 (first time) to CA-166 (another first) into Nipomo.  First stop, Wheeler Springs.  Pulled into the dirt for a picture with the country’s smallest post office.  My buddy made the trip with us on his 2002 Yamaha V-Max.  Gotta love the similar design philosophy… stuff a huge V-4 between 2 wheels.  It was so mean, that production spanned 23 years, and would top 150mph with enough room and nerve.  Wheeler Springs has an interesting past too: http://ojaihistory.com/wheeler-hot-springs-new-owners-confront-old-issues/




Snaking up the CA-33.




The “phone booth,” approximately 14 miles up the road from the Ojai Valley Shopping Center, where your cellphone works.  Hat tip, Kala.




At about 5,100 feet before the descent.





Hardly anyone on the roads, with perfect weather the whole way.




The signage says it all!  The red ’94 belongs to my friend, Steve, who made the trip down from Livermore.  Attended grad school together in San Luis Obispo and dreamt about Vipers.  We also share a vivid memory of the drive across to Las Vegas through a freakish rain/hailstorm for the sole reason of renting a ’97 GTS.




Morning parking outside Firestone Grill (downtown).  You must order the tri-tip sandwich here.




Hangover remedy at Louisa’s Place (also downtown).  Our waitress asked if the amount of gravy was to my satisfaction.  Note: there is biscuit still showing.  Unacceptable.




You know you’ve become a family man, when you are considerate of the single guys still asleep back at the hotel, and go for a bottled water and Gatorade run in the sports “utility” car.  Green box for later.





We HAD to stop by the house where Steve (far left) and I lived during grad school.  Lots of great memories.







I managed to invite us into the house and take a tour, including my former room.  I sure don’t remember it having all the amenities.  These kids are seriously on a 4-year vacation.  Time to cease contributions to the college account, and begin deposits to the supercharger fund.




These cars glow in roadtrip dirt and filth.




Atop San Luis Obispo Bay








 
Snuck in time for action shots before going out at night.




Until next time, farewell Central Coast!

For me, in many ways, the Viper holds similar qualities to the cars featured in this video.  That it has one or two less zeros on the pricetag makes it even more special   :)

Oops!  Probably due to the Prius driver passing on the right.  That or lack of attending a CCC.
