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.

Dodge Viper for Sale

Dodge and Jeep are announcing recalls of a total of 895,000 Durango and Grand Cherokee models worldwide from the 2011 through 2014 model years. There's a possibility that the wiring in the sun visor can short circuit and cause a fire. It specifically affects vehicles built between January 5, 2010, and December 11, 2013, and there are approximately 651,000 of them in the US, 45,700 in Canada, 23,000 in Mexico and 175,000 outside of North America.

Screws that fasten the sunvisor to the headliner may pierce wires in the visor, if the part has been removed or serviced, potentially causing a fire risk. If the wires short circuit, they could overheat and potentially combust. The automakers report three injuries caused by this defect, and according to the investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, "there may be a total of 52 unique fire incidents."
To fix the problem, Dodge and Jeep will inspect the vehicles for suspect wiring, and all of the models, whether damaged or not, will get a new sun visor spacer with a wire guide to stop the possibility of short circuits. According to the automakers' announcement, "this condition is not present in vehicles which have not had the headliner or vanity mirror serviced." They will notify affected owners, and repairs will begin in August.
Looking to play up its aging three-row crossover, Dodge will introduce a new model for its Journey franchise at next week's Chicago Auto Show. The 2014 Dodge Journey Crossroad will be a new trim level positioned between the SXT and Limited, and it will be distinguished from other Journey models thanks to a handful of styling add-ons.

Plucking a page right out of the appearance playbook of the Ford Explorer Sport, the Journey Crossroad gets a meaner, more SUV-like demeanor. The Journey has often straddled the line between tall wagon and crossover, but this new trim goes a long way toward skewing its visuals toward the utility vehicle end of the spectrum. That's thanks largely to the Platinum chrome exterior trim on its roof rails and side sills, unique fascias, smoked headlights and taillights and, of course, those black 19-inch wheels. Inside, the Journey Crossroad will get a similar treatment, with darker, Liquid Graphite accents throughout the cabin, and the model will also come standard with leather seats (which Dodge says are a new design), and Chrysler's giant 8.4-inch Uconnect screen.
The 2014 Journey Crossroad goes on sale this spring with a starting price of $24,995 (*not including $995 for destination) for the four-cylinder, front-wheel-drive model, but Dodge says that the model will also be offered with more power and capability from the optional 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and all-wheel-drive. Scroll down for the full press release, and check back next week for our live coverage from Chicago.
The Aficionauto host Christopher Rutkowski has a real passion for original and replica cars from movies and television, whether they are from James Bond, Jurassic Park, or incredibly obscure Japanese shows. However, he might have outdone himself this time because he hopped into one of the biggest automotive stars of contemporary cinema. This 1970 Dodge Charger appeared in Fast & Furious and came back in Fast Five, where Paul Walker actually drove it. The menacing, black muscle car will make its return to the franchise in the seventh film, too.
The Fast and Furious Charger is a real beast no matter how you look at it. The interior is nothing more than two seats and a roll cage, and as the video shows, this thing vibrates constantly like a coiled mass of muscle ready to strike. The camera can barely stay in place most of the time. Also, Dom's Dodge is more than happy to do a smoky burnout and leave the driver partially deaf afterward from its wonderful, ear-splitting engine roar.
The Aficionauto also interviews the man who controls the keys to this beast. Bob Hartwig was once an F-15 pilot, but he also loved Hollywood vehicles. Now, he's a partner at Picture Car Warehouse, a company with about 850 cars that supplies vehicles to film studios. This Charger definitely seems to be Hartwig's favorite in the collection, as it should be.
