"This car is great... It is so much fun to drive... It is an over grown go cart.. With tons of power.. It never seems to go away.. there is so much power you never get tired of feeling those wheels spinning out of control.... Not to mention the attention you get in this car.. I have not ever taken it out for a drive without someone giving me a thumbs up, asking to take pictures with the car or even recording it while its driving away... Id certainly recommend this car. Just hold on, its a heck of a ride!!!"
Cons: "Always breaking down. Great if you don't drive it."

"From day one the car has done nothing but nickel and dime me.
Tires are hard to find and it goes through them like water through a duck. The fuel pump went bad. The rear end went bad twice. I have put in a new transmission and now its starting to make noise. The engine is starting to smoke. Everything is EXPENSIVE TO FIX ON THIS CAR. If I had to do it over I would have spent the money on an older classic like a 57 Chevy or something that goes up in value not down in value every day. Parts are a pain to find. And the car drives like a garbage truck. Loud and noisy."
"If you think you can get a Viper GTS for the KBB listed value your dreaming. I almost fell out of my chair laughing when they said you can get one for 33k in perfect condition and low miles. 1996-1999 Viper GTS's sell between 36 and 41 thousand depending on how taken car of if is. I looked for my Viper GTS for over a year and watched the prices before I found mine a only 37k with 19k miles.
This is a hard to find car which only a thousand are made a year compared to 10's of thousands of other sports cars in this category.
By far the Viper GTS in these years are the best looking Vipers ever made. The engine is bullet proof and can take a beating. There isn't another motor in any other car this strong or reliable. The Viper is worth every penny and the closest car this nice and exotic will cost you over 100k."
"I've owned my Blue and White Stripe RT/10 for 8 years, and she is absolutely fantastic. I've put 25000 miles on her, raced her, road trips, everything. Bullet proof, reliable, even under my abusive driving! Gorgeous, still turns heads everytime I drive her!"
Cons: "Watch out for hot door sills and lead footed valet attendents"

"I own a TNT motorsports Serpent 655 number 11 of 12. The car has 505 hp and 505 ft lb of torque to the rear wheels on the dyno at D.C. Performance. The car is a handfull to drive, no top, no windows, no power steering, just all motor and driveline. It is a drivers car and is not forgiving, you need to pay attention. That being said you can not, for the money, buy a better exotic true american sportscar. Valet...always up front, wherever it's parked... always a crowd! Zero to 100 in 7.5 seconds, low 11s in the quarter and handles like a go kart!! mad fun!"
