: Out with the Viper, in with the XLR-V

03-22-06, 10:51 PM

Traded in a 2003 SRT-10 for an Infrared XLR-V. Awesome machine, and very pleased with the purchase. Also own a 2004 CTS-V. It was this ownership experience that lured me to the new V; 30,000 flawless, power shifting miles.

In short, I'm a middle-aged type A that's mellowed to about an A- and got really tired of driving a 510hp camper. I'm also a big fan of Scottish single-malts, so I might have to meet up with Scotcad some day for a few dozen distillery tours. I'm only good for about 3 posts a month, so don't worry about me taking up too much space. Regards, Rick M.

Welcome Rick!

Glad to have another New Englander here! The weather is starting to break so I hope to see you around. There is a Cadillac day in Brookline May 21 with a pretty good turnout. Here is the link:Cadillac Day Brookline, MA (http://www.mot.org/Events/calendar.html#May). Good luck with the XLR-V!

Actually the thread title says "Viper". The SRT10 is the ragtop version of the Viper.

Anyway, huge fan of single malts here too, plus I have a CTS-V. We got good taste, don't we :highfive:

Good move, and welcome to the forums. Watch out for the CTS guys -- they are mod mad :)
