2001 Dodge Viper on 2040-cars
Subiaco, Arkansas, United States
This is a beautiful 2001 Race Yellow Viper GTS. Most of those miles were on cruises with
car clubs. The car runs great, looks absolutely stunning and has given me no
problems. I am just not driving it anymore and am ready to move to something
else (69 Road Runner I need to fund). Fresh tune-up 2 months ago with new
Demon coil packs, plugs, and full fiberglass sleeved custom wire set. Tires
are in good shape with Nitto Invo's (less than 3000 miles). Always garaged and
never driven in the rain. The only real cosmetic issues I can think of is a
dent in the exhaust cover on the passenger side it's down low and I never really
notice it ( it was there when I bought it). There are also some abrasions to
the chin spoiler. These cars are very low and this is a common problem. I
have a chin spoiler protector on the car but the corners still occasionally
scrape entering driveways etc. I don't really notice it myself but you may
want to get it fixed. If you don't like attention then you do not want this
car. The first time I drove it to the local Sonic, a man literally ran along
side me screaming, "Oh my God that's a Viper, a real Viper". Ever since that
day I realized what a rare and beautiful car the Gen II Viper is. I will miss
her, but hate to see her sitting under the cover in the garage all of the
time. Other recent additions to the car were Roe racing smooth tubes, and
new factory valve covers. (the old ones were bubbling and I love to open the
hood for people, as they always ask me to do).

Even though Chrysler will reportedly discontinue the Dodge Durango after the current model's lifespan - said to be around 2016 - that isn't stopping the automaker from improving its full-size, three-row SUV. The vehicle won't debut at the New York Auto Show until tomorrow, but images are already leaking out ahead of the embargo lift, and they show that the 2014 model is getting even more aggressive styling to go with more technology inside and out.
Dodge limited its early press shots of the new Durango to just the R/T trim level, but this new look adds a meaner look to this model with more dramatic projector-beam headlights along with a "floating" crosshair grille and a restyled fascia. At the rear of the Durango, LED racetrack taillights show a family resemblance to the Charger and Dart, while a new rear fascia adds to the styling while also allowing for an integrated trailer hitch.
On the tech side, the instrument panel looks to have been redesigned to include a standard seven-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) gauge cluster, and it also appears as if Chrysler's well-liked UConnect system has been updated with the 8.4-inch touchscreen found in other Chrysler vehicles. The 2013 model's conventional console shifter has been replaced by a rotary knob for gear selection, suggesting that there are transmission changes afoot as well. We'll have more details when the silks slide off this big boy tomorrow, so stay tuned.
There's an evergreen debate among auto enthusiasts about whether they would prefer to have the latest and greatest car of today or a certified classic from yesteryear. What if you had to further define that, though, and the choice was between a brand new 2015 Subaru Legacy or a turbocharged Datsun 240Z with a hatch that wouldn't close? Roadkill aimed to find out that and more in one of its best videos to date.
According to the hosts, Subaru came to them, handed over some money and challenged Roadkill's project cars against its latest Legacy. The result is every bit as good (or better) than any automotive-themed show you could find on television.
Things start simple with a figure-eight race in a rodeo arena with the Subaru taking on Roadkill's 1968 Ford Ranchero, originally built for ice racing. From there the Legacy races a 1968 Dodge Charger with no windows around and off-road rally stage. Finally, the Subie goes head-to-head against the Rotsun, the aforementioned turbocharged 240Z, through an abandoned neighborhood. Plus, there's a bonus drag race challenging them all.
General Motors isn't the only automaker with ignition switch problems. Chrysler is fighting it too and is now announcing a recall of 695,957 examples worldwide of the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans from the 2008-2010 model years, plus the 2009-2010 Dodge Journey.
According to a statement from Chrysler, the models have a bad wireless ignition node detent ring in the ignition switch, making it possible for drivers to appear to have the key in the "Run" position but for the spring not to fully engage. It can then slip back to the "Accessory" position and shut the car off. If this happens, the vehicle loses power steering, brake boost and the airbags.
There is some disparity about the number of vehicles affected under this recall. In its statement, Chrysler claims that it covers 525,206 vehicles in the US, 102,892 in Canada, 25,591 in Mexico and 42,268 elsewhere. However, the recall announcement posted by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration lists an estimated 438,109 vehicles in the US. Chrysler spokesperson Nick Cappa told Autoblog via email that the reasoning for the different figures "will become clear at a later date."
