1,487 Miles in a Dodge Viper Part 2

by Trent

The Year was 2010, the first half of the Epic Viper Road trip was completed. I no longer wanted to be in the Viper. Fortunately, we had access to another vehicle while in California. Not wanting to drag out the trip to San Diego we had to make into a 3 hour drive, we took our alternate vehicle. Our purpose was to meet up with Gene, the owner of a red RX-7 we featured previously. Fortunately, the drive to and from was uneventful. The next day however, it was time to embark on our trip back home, putting another 700 miles in on the V10 that has had it’s bouts with schizophrenia. Unfortunately, to make it home in time before work the next day, the drive had to be done in the day time.

First things first, a drive to the coast is not complete without a drive on the gorgeous Pacific Coast Highway. The Viper actually kind of fit in here. We even had a few people staring which is pretty amazing considering the amount of $100,000 and up cars that surrounded us throughout Laguna Beach and Newport Beach. We eventually made our way up the coast and turned inland to Anaheim to scout out a car show and get one last breather before the trip began. (more…)

1,487 Miles in a Dodge Viper Part 1

by Trent

In preparation for Part 2 of this story, we are re-posting part 1 here to refresh your memory about this epic journey. Look for part 2 this Thursday!

I thought we might be on to something, I thought I was going to prove to everyone that cars were meant to be driven and driven hard. Nothing tests a car’s endurance like taking it 1500 miles through the desert where’s it’s 105-degrees during the day and drops to the 30’s in the canyons at night. No sweat, no worries. I’ve got a semi-functional heater and no Air Conditioning. No A/C? Yes, but there’s also no top and no windows to keep us cool. It was a plan half baked in awesomeness, then the first of many ‘check engine’ lights came on. (more…)

1985 ASC McLaren Capri – An Acquired Taste

by Michael Chandler

The 1985 ASC McLaren Capri is a 1985 Mercury Capri with some modifications: a McLaren massaged suspension, different exterior pieces, and a different camshaft for the 5.0L V-8. In 1985 it also had a set of 15 inch, neon colored mesh wheels that looked more at home on a VW or BMW of the era. Thankfully the 1980’s mercifully ended, and this Capri has changed with the times.

The Odd Couple: Two K20 Civics with Opposing Personalities

by Michael Chandler

The similarities between these two Civics are irrefutable: both have two doors, both have K20’s, both have wheels that are more at home on racing cars than on street cars, but that’s where the similarities end. (more…)

Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing: 2010 Camaro SS with 912WHP

by Trent

Many things come to mind when you hear a Camaro crank over it’s motor and stumble to life. I have heard many, many Camaro’s start up and rev their motor, but I was not prepared to hear Aric’s Camaro. This is no ordinary 2010 Camaro SS, it looks stock, it has Air Conditioning, it has bluetooth, and it has a motor transplant that makes grown men weak in the knees. (more…)

Viper Road Trip Live Twitter Feed

by Trent

Today, Mike and I embark on the first 700-ish miles of the Viper Road Trip. Feel free to follow along on our @camautomag Twitter account. We leave today around 5pm MST(we have day jobs). It’s a balmy 91-degrees today and we have no means of cooling down other than the wind surrounding us. It won’t be too bad until we hit Vegas where it’s 103-degrees today and there is ALWAYS traffic on the freeway. Wish us luck!

CAM: Viper Road Trip Feature

by Trent

Viper Road Trip

Dodge Viper Interior

This is where Mike and I will spend at least 1500 miles in late June. It is a 94 Dodge Viper, and it will be our road trip car from Salt Lake City to Southern California and all the places we need to go down there. We’re traveling down there for a reason, but it’s a 10 hour drive there, 10 hours back and we’ll be in California for roughly 25 hours. Crazy? Yes. But even crazier is that two overweight guys are going to cram themselves in this car with a duffel bag(which will fill the trunk) and all our requisite photo gear. Needless to say, we’ll be packing light.

The top and windows will be left at home because they take up too much trunk space, and there’s no A/C, so we can only hope for pleasant weather. Check out the June 30th issue for more on this 2-part series of our road trip in the Viper.
