Oh I am a fan of Espionage movies like the bond series, enemy of the state, bad boys etc etc etc. and 4 is my lucky number and Ferrari is my dream car to be related to a car forum. Hence... agent4ferrari!

Dodge Viper GTS Route 402, my dad's friend had Hennessey tuned second generation dodge viper.
He took me out one night when he realized how much of a car nut I am. We went to a arrow straight part of the highway and he asked me to floor her, I chickened out bcoz i really thought i will ruin his car. He asked me to try it again and told me that its has so much torque jus trust urself and dont worry about the smoothness. I was 16 and i did wat he said, man the acceleration was mind numbing, V10 roaring like lion and the rear tires squealing, you could feel the chassis twisting under the torque.

I know that a lot of more powerful cars have since came out but none had the theater, the drama of that ViPER.

Well said man

One of my friend's uncles had a Hennessey Viper Venom. He couldn't floor it when driving through residential neighborhoods because it would set off the car alarms of all the parked cars on the street!

My 996 turbo looked completely stock so nothing special there. Itís all in the turbo upgrades, Flash and suspension tweaks. Also attached is a picture of my friends Lambo which was on a dyno being tuned while it threw some fire balls. Gt3 pictures attached as well. I will post some of my garage pictures with other cars.

Also posted some of my friends F 599 GTO. Chicago has 2 of these cars.

Thats a nice set of wheels. Quick question - Why aren't the plates on your GT3 from IL?

They're temporary plates and could very well be from Illinois.
