Soon to be destroyed V-10 Viper...

Hello,

Well, in my Auto Shop class, we have a prototype V-10 Viper. Red w/ tan leather int. Not sure of the year though. It's been pretty beat up. Some not too bright kids in earlier classes tried to place it on one of the lifts, and put the lift spots on the wrong spot underneath, and place a few good sized dents into it. As well as these same kids have torn the engine apart and put it back together, so I'm guessing it doesn't run too well.

Anyways, long story short, this Viper was donated by Chrysler a while back, and I was checking it out and all, and noticed on the back where the license plate should be was a paper stuck on there.

"This vehicle was donated by Chrysler corp. On completion of use, this vehicle must be destroyed."

Sad to say...

I have no idea what year it is. Vipers are one of the many Mopar's I don't follow the years in.

I could possibly get pictures, doubt it though. I'll let you know.

Sad to hear about the Subie.

BUMMER but guess its like a scrap yard where they send there parts that dont make quality , they have to crush and chip them into scrap for remelting , i had to weld up a crusher for a yard once and they have security 24/7 so no one takes anything for there use even if its a brand new motor or anything of value , it was rough watching new rads and engines get shreded like sticks and then go to melting

You're going to laugh.


At the end of my auto 1/2 class (only 1 sem long) a kid was using a scan tool on it with a buddy of mine.

The kid started it up and off she went. Through the CLOSED bay door, under a lift that had a Honda CRV on it. Took off the plate that covers the lift wires. Almost knocked the CRV off the lift.

Then it plowed into tables that some other people were loading engines on, and partly through the welding station as well. One of the welders was/is deaf. (was because it happened last year, is because were in advanced auto). Viper plowed into him. Luckily somehow, he "jumped" and more or less rolled off the hood to the side.


THEN, the moron gets out as our 22 year old teacher slides across the shop. He literally slid for about 25 ft... the freaking car is burning rubber pinned up against 3 tables because of how much torque it has. Our teacher kept saying "SHUT IT OFF" and the kid kept saying "I DONT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED" and "IT WASNT ME!". Eventually the teacher got around to the ignition and shut it off.

Right now, it's in a repair shop. Hasnt been in our shop all year. that kid never did come back to advanced auto.

Funny thing he told me:

"I know how to drive a stick". Obviously, he didn't. Because what happened what he started it up, and just let the clutch go, IN FIRST GEAR. He said "I tried to slam on the brakes". But with a car with that much torque doing that, first thing you do is put clutch in.


So yea, anyways...

Yea, you're telling me! Interesting day, thats for sure.

I was in the "back" of the shop (opposite the bay doors) using a brake lathe. I was on the slow cut, so I turned around to watch what people were doing. Then "VROOMMMMMMMM.... SCREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEECHHH".

It was unreal. Not something you see everyday. People started jumping, and one moron almost trampled me right as i was standing at the brake lathe. Not that the brake lathe was in front of the car, was off the side a bit.


so thats the story...

My car is currently at the Tech School near where I live & they've got at least 2 or 3 vehicles sitting up there with magnetic signs on the door like that. " This car was donated & must be destroyed when finished ". Know one is form Chrysler & 1 FORD. Although I don't think the FORD says it has to be destroyed, just that it was donated by them.
