I don't think I posted this here

A guy that has a local shop had this on the side of the building. He parts out a lot of Subaru's so I am not sure what the plan is for the Viper. Hard to see from this pic, but looks like a procharger hiding in the front of the engine
There's a whole wreaking yard I think in Texas that specializes in crashed Vipers. They got pallets of engines.
I think Viper drivers are #2 behind the Mustang drivers on the idiot totem pole.

When horsepower equals 8x the driver’s IQ.
There's a kid on the Tube that does crashed car rebuilds, (as many other channels do) he did a Viper and it was in the holding stage when he did a crashed Hellcat rebuild and in the background. I think he makes more off the Tube videos than he did the Hellcat rebuild, I never watched the whole Viper series but I watched the Hellcat one like 7 times to figure out when the roof got buckled. He didn't mention or highlight when the car slipped on the frame table when his body guy was doing the frame horn pull. Maybe it was better left to his body guy and him.
I shook my head when he realized he had a oil cooler line to be replaced which he missed, I thought how many times has he had this front end apart/off? Like six? Pretty much what he was talking about is that if you pop all the airbags ie Wheel, curtain & knee bags, then there is the seat belt explosive tighteners plus hacking the computer back, that's enough to total the car just for the cost of those items. Also this was a high mileage car.
<smh>

(edit) and of course the guy in Michigan that he got the front clip from didn't want to be on the video.

:rofl:

Homie's in the Hood (LA) Don't know who the whoop's should be directed to (cops?).
I see a lot of FB & vids are no longer active so enjoy this while it lasts.

At least you arms won’t get tired with easy access to the underside.
Kind of reminds me of something I saw on the internet about 15 years ago it was a large rocking structure that bolted to your whole hubs and you just rocked the car on it’s side to work on the bottom side. I could have sworn it was on the Eastwood site, but haven’t seen it since.

I could see lots of problems with fluids leaking or going into areas where they aren't wanted, such as oil filling up the valve covers and cylinders.

not if you do it right, we've had no issues like that.
they are very handy to use.
and surprisingly very steady and solid when car is on its side
like wirewheeling and painting the underside of a 66 300 convertible
