UPDATE: Putting my self in the shoes of a potential buyer shipping would be something I would be worried about so I am posting an update on shipping details. I am shipping the car back state side with DGX, one of the best international shipping companies in the world. Original shipping was going to run me about 4k, but I had concerns with it being loaded and unloaded by people and potential for damage among other things. I called them back today and worked out a different plan with them thats way more safe but twice as expensive to ensure worry free/safe shipping. The car will be driven by me into its own shipping container, blocked and strapped down. It will be loaded on the ship in the center section, bottom where there is little to no movement, reserved for the most fragile cargo. It then will be offloaded still sealed in its container and trucked to your location where it will be taken out of its container. The car will never be touched or taken out from point "A" to pint "B".This is the safest most expensive way to ship but will ensure a safe delivery of the car and will be as clean as the day I drive it in. One negative with this shipping method is it will take 4 weeks instead of 3 to deliver the car, well worth the wait in my book. I will not consider shipping any other way to some how save money or lower my asking price. I am paying $7,500 to the west coast and $8,000 to the east coast so I am really only getting 49-50k for a car that I have about 100k invested in. So with that being said; I do not want to wast anyones time watching this car on ebay thinking it will possible sell for less than asking price. $57,500 is my rock bottom with the quality of Viper and shipping methods, so if you want it you just as well "buy it now" so you wont have to wait as long to get it.
Active duty military and I took my car with me to Guam. It rains every day , the max speed limit is 35 mph, Basically it was mistake to have taken the car here, and I refuse to drive it and get caught in the rain. I have been taking it out of the garage and waxing it once a month for 2 years, and I have two years to go on this tour. Car would be better off back in the states and I could use the money for new family. Have over 30k in professionally installed upgrades and tuning was done by ROE Racing. The car is in excellent shape, super clean and super fast. Car is also supper dependably, you could easily take road trips with this car with not a single issue, drives just like a regular Viper until you hit about 50% throttle.....then hang on! All the performance parts listed have less than 1k miles. The Nitrous kit is a 100 hp shot and was only used during tuning, has not been used after that. The buy it now price includes shipping to your door after full payment is received. I am federal law enforcement, and will have you involved every step of the way when shipping; I will pay and set up shipping, and new owners name will also be on all shipping docs and will have POC with the shipping company. It will be sent from Guam to Long beach by a enclosed car carrier ship, then trucked to your door. Will take about 3 weeks after payment is received;and will be insured. If need be I will supply contact information to verify everything with my Command.

When people ask us what car we would recommend for them, it's usually not easy to answer. To make a useful recommendation we must consider which of the numerous vehicle segments fits their needs best, and then choose one of the many vehicles offered in each segment. For some people, new cars don't meet their expectations of value, because they lose so much of it the moment they are purchased and driven off the dealer lot. For them, there's always the used-car market, where great deals can be found, but cars' histories of reliability and maintenance records - and perhaps that Certified Pre-Owned warranty - become ever-important factors playing into purchase choice.

To help out, Edmunds has done us the favor of assembling a list of the best used vehicles money can buy, covering model years 2006-2011, according to what it considers the most important criteria when shopping for used autos: reliability, safety, value and availability. That means unreliable, unsafe, super-expensive or limited-edition models don't appear on the list, but instead cars from each segment that are more likely to satisfy the general population.
There are some real goodies on the list, including but not limited to vehicles such as the capable Honda Fit, the cultish Honda Accord coupe (which can be had with a 240-horsepower V6 and a six-speed manual transmission some years), and the powerful Chevrolet Corvette. While Edmunds' choice of the Volvo C70 for best used convertible baffled us at first (not that it's a bad car), it redeemed itself by stating that the Mazda MX-5 still is an unofficial top choice if you don't require more than two seats.
The Dodge Viper may have been around now for over 20 years, but as far as racing achievements go, 2000 was its finest season. That's when it won the Rolex 24 at Daytona, the GTS class trophy at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and its second consecutive title in the American Le Mans Series.

Since then, SRT Motorsports hasn't quite had the same success, withdrawing from Le Mans this year and shedding the Dodge name and its emblematic red and white livery for the SRT badge and a silver snakeskin theme. But now that the Viper is back under the Dodge banner, so too is the racing team returning to its classic livery.
Starting from the six-hour race at Watkins Glen next week, both the No. 91 and No. 93 Viper GTS-Rs will wear the red base color with twin white racing stripes that its more accomplished forebears wore on circuits around the world. And with it, maybe the Viper will return once again to the winner's circle at home and abroad.
We recently saw updated specs and new trims of the 2015 Viper, but it looks like the folks at Dodge were saving the biggest surprise for last. Prices on all levels of the American sports car are seeing an immediate, across-the-board price cut of $15,000; even 2014 models still remaining on dealer lots.
The new MSRP for the 2015 Viper in its base SRT trim now starts at $84,995, and when the TA and GTS come to the lineup later next year, they start at $100,995 and $107,995, respectively. The move seems like a swing for the fences that might help to quell slow sales.
Obviously, current Viper owners might be somewhat peeved that their investment was just re-priced by the company. However, to assuage some of their concerns, Dodge is giving all fifth-gen owners a certificate worth $15,000 towards the purchase of a new one, which comes in addition to the price reduction.
