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).

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.
With its crazy 707 horsepower on tap and roughly $60,000 starting price, the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has been one of the most talked about cars of the summer, maybe even the year. However, there's always been one lingering question about the behemoth that Dodge has waited to answer until now - its fuel economy. The EPA ratings for the muscle car are finally out, and the numbers are actually pretty impressive for a vehicle with this much power.
A 2015 Challenger Hellcat with the eight-speed automatic is rated at 22 miles per gallon highway, 13 mpg city and 16 mpg combined. Opting for the six-speed manual drops those figures to 21 mpg highway, 13 mpg city and 16 mpg combined.
"As the fastest muscle car ever, the Challenger Hellcat can run 10-second ETs [elapsed times] at the track, and then get 22 miles per gallon on the drive home. With a starting price of $59,995, there's nothing else that even comes close," said Dodge and SRT President Tim Kuniskis in the company's release.
According to Automotive News, Chrysler is hoping Fast & Furious 6 will be kind to the Dodge Dart. While the compact sedan doesn't actually show up in the film, Dodge has partnered up with the movie franchise for a new ad featuring the Dart.
Chrysler hasn't exactly seen the high sales numbers it was originally hoping for with the new sedan, thanks in part to a couple of missteps. For starters, most early-production vehicles were only offered with a manual transmission. Analysts believe Chrysler squandered around 95 percent of potential Dart sales because automatic transmission options weren't immediately available.
Right now, the Dodge Dart rakes 19th among compact cars, pulling down 31,064 sales through April. Last month was the company's strongest, with 8,099 units moving off of dealer lots. Unfortunately, the model has also been handicapped by its older sister, the Avenger. With Chrysler throwing heavy incentives at the aging sedan, many consumers have taken advantage of a better deal with the slightly larger, more powerful Avenger.
