The original Dodge Viper is a special car -- and today I'm reviewing the 1992 Viper. First I'll take you on a tour of this special Viper and show you all the quirks and features of one of the original Dodge Viper models built; then I'll get the Viper on the road and drive it -- and I'll let you know what it's like behind the wheel of Dodge's modern muscle car, the 1992 Viper RT/10.

  • Working production at Toyota...I have learned you really don't want the first 1000 vehicles that run on a new model line. I don't care what manufacturer, the first ones are what everybody in the plant learn from their mistakes on. For example the first couple thousand new 2020 Toyota Highlanders have thinner metal over the entire chassis than the previous model...so thin that when we put our hand on the side member above the doors to lean over the roof to fix paint defects the metal would dimple enough that most had to be fixed by the metal shop, later on in early production they claimed they increased the metal thickness to strengthen it but we still can't lean with our hand over the truck like we could with the previous model.

  • You must be a millennial being afraid to drive a car that you actually have to drive and not rely on the nanny state to protect you from yourself. The fact that this car and others like it did NOT have built in baby sitters is the beauty of it

  • For me there is a difference of using cheap materials vs. using simple/functional design and overall lack of features for simplicity. As much as I want to love this former poster dream car I have to say that Lotus made a better job with introducing simplicity to sports cars with their first Elise again.

  • I welded the cooler that sits directly behind the cross hair grill. ( I was in a team of 4 welders chosen for the Viper) We made them for the Viper from 92 thru 95. Modine manufacturing. It's still a thrill to see one (rarely) , and get down low and see that cooler that was so fun to make. It was a weird design with a pipe coming off the top with a weird bend and a little brace welded.on it. Aluminum tig welded. Glad.they are still holding up. Back then in a production meeting, we were told they were having alot of trouble getting that hood to mold consistently , that would have been early.93 I guess , just a little fun fact , they got it figured out. And I'm sure glad they did.

I know they created this car for who knows how to drive a powerfull car, not to your 16 years old son who thinks he's a driver. At least, it could have come with minimum safety acessories.

If (or when) I win the lottery the usual car choices of a lottery winner maybe tried at some point but the Dodge Viper is where I have always wanted to be first. I believe that me and that beast would gel. It’s got such appeal to me but each to their own. I understand the Ferrari Porsche Lamborghini Aston thing but the Dodge Viper touches me in more places. Only ever seen one on the uk roads. It was black. I knew instantly what it was.

  • So in the 80s, the USA passed a law requireing passive supplemental restratint in cars. That would be either airbags or seatbelts attached to doors, which could be classified as "passive restraint." Since that was cheaper than airbags, manufacturers did that, saying they could leave the seatbelt plugged in and open the door to allow for a passive restraitng system. Eventually, the USA passed legislitraiton requiring airbags, as opposed to just a generic "passive restraint."

  • This car was rushed to the stores by MOPAR to fulfill the requirement by many racing series that the car must have production for consumers to be allowed on the track in a non prototype race. The biggest problem with this car was not the car. It was management. In their infinite wisdom, they put tires on these beasts that were barely considered to be sports tires. People who bought this car would jump in it. Press the pedal to the floor. Proceed into nearest solid object as the car lost all control from lack of grip.
