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).

A small number of units of the 2013 Chrysler 200 (inset) and 2013 Dodge Avenger are being recalled over a broken control valve in the fuel tank assembly. The potential 1,785 sedans were manufactured late last year, and if affected with a broken control valve could suffer from stalling or fuel leakage.
A bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration notes that the recall should begin next month, at which time owners can take their cars to dealers for repair free of charge. The full release with more information is just below.
Sometimes a video comes around that just makes you shake your head in disbelief. Take for example these guys from Nebraska in their dually diesel flatbed Ram, doing a smoky burnout. Lighting up the tires is nothing new, but these folks take things a step further by having another guy on an ATV in bed that is also smoking the tires. Finally, people are sitting on a couch in the bed taking the whole show in, as beer cans shoot out of the stacks.
There have been several stories recently about the scourge of rolling coal, i.e., diesel trucks modified to lay down a thick, black smoke screen, sometimes for vaguely political reasons. Whatever your opinion is on it, breathing in this much nasty stuff isn't exactly great for your health. Of course, it turns out that burning rubber is pretty awful, too. Both diesel and tire emissions contain cancer-causing Group 1 carcinogens. Combine them with the cigarette smoking here, and these guys are an oncologist's nightmare. Scroll down to take it all in for yourself. Warning, there is a little explicit language.
Chrysler has issued a recall of 278,222 light trucks and sport utility vehicles here in the United States. The reason: bad rear axles. Specifically, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the rear axle pinion nut may lack a necessary adhesive patch, which could cause the nut to loosen. If this happens, the axle can lock up, which could cause all sorts of havoc on the road.
This is an expansion of the rear axle recall announced in October of last year, where 44,300 Ram 1500 and Dodge Dakota models were being called in. At that time, 12 accidents had been reported due to the faulty axle pinion nut.
Affected vehicles include Ram 1500 trucks from the 2009 to 2012 model years, Dodge Dakota models from the 2009 to 2011 model years, and both the Chrysler Aspen and Dodge Durango SUV twins, both from the 2009 model year only.
