Not only is it always cool to spot a Dodge Viper, but a first generation Viper RT/10 in this good of condition almost makes me tingle. Imagined in 1988 and debuted in 1991, these Vipers had one of Chrysler’s first all aluminum block engines. It was also a standard V10 with 4 valves per cylinder. To put that in perspective, all of Chrysler’s trucks at the time had 2 valve’s per cylinder so this was truly a work of speed/art… Spart.

Fun Fact: The 1991 prototype Viper replaced the Dodge Stealth as the pace car for the Indianapolis 500.
