The Viper that got me kicked out of my small town

  • Published on:  9/11/2018
  • Casey (@caseyputsch) dreamt of owning a Viper but once he got it, the other residents of his small town did not take kindly to his driving habits. He left town and hasn't looked back but this Dodge Viper's story was not over. Butler Tire is your source for the latest wheels and tires from the best brands in the business including Michelin.

    I don't care what anybody thinks. To me, the 1997 Viper GTS Coupe with Blue and White stripes is the most beautiful thing on four wheels. It was my dream car back then, and it's my dream car now!

    I saw a 2016 viper on the road the other day and just fell in love with it. So we see it pull into the gas station that we are stopped at and I walk over to the guy and I say "man that is a beautiful car" he says thank you and we get to talking about it and just as I get ready to walk away he says the magic words "wanna go for a ride in it?" I literally turned into a little kis again I walked over to my mom and go drive to the next gas station I'll meet you there so my mom pulls off starts heading down the road and she gets about 5 miles down the road before we finally left the gas station and the dude floors it and as we fly past my mom at almost 170 mph I can see the look on her face that says I'm gonna kill you we pull into the next gas station wait about 10 mins and my mom pulls in and before she even puts the car in park she gets out of the cars walks up to me slaps me and goes "I told you not to go that fast in a car around me" me and the guy just turn and look at each other and starts dying laughing. My mom goes what's so funny and I look her in the eyes and say "it was totally worth it" I walk around the car and shake the man's hand and walk back to the car needless to say my mom didn't talk to me for the rest of the day 😂😂😂😂

    The crash sucks, but pretty much everything else about that story is awesome--your future wife telling you you should buy it back, getting some therapy by working on it. I feel the same way about mine more and more

    With that popped collar I would've assumed a BMW driver. Also, you're not a guy "from the cornfields", your family own a golf course!
