This is a Dodge Ram SRT 10 VCA Edition truck. It's #44 of only 50 vehicles made. This one happens to have only 3151 miles on the clock and has been meticulously cared for.
This 3,151-mile, 2004 Dodge Ram SRT-10 Viper Club of America Limited Edition is a rare truck indeed. As number 44 of 50 Dodge Ram Viper V-10 VCA Editions built in 2004, it's the only example painted in Viper Electric Blue with white stripes. It was awarded through a raffle conducted by the Viper Club of America and delivered to the lucky winner at the 2004 Daytona 500. This Dodge Ram V-10 comes with the congratulatory letter, Ringgold Dodge window sticker and factory paperwork.
Powered by a multi-port injected 8.3L/500 HP Viper V-10 engine and backed by a Borg Warner T56 6-speed transmission, the 2004 Dodge Ram SRT-10—driven by NASCAR star Brendon Gaughn—set a record at 154.587 MPH on February 2, 2004. Other noteworthy data generated from that session included 0-60 MPH times at 4.9-seconds, a time of 13.8-seconds in the quarter mile, and a .92G on the skid pad.
Suspension on the Dodge Ram SRT-10 consisted of independent front suspension with rack-and-pinion steering with a Dana 60 bringing up the rear. Special sport-tuned springs are dampened by not four, but a total of five Bilstein gas-charged shock absorbers—the extra shock absorber on the rear eliminated wheel hop. The adjustments brought the ride height down an inch at the front and 2.5-inches at the rear. The Dodge Ram SRT-10 stops via a set of 15-inch diameter front and 14-inch diameter rear vented-rotors 4-wheel disc brakes. Twenty-two inch machine-polished 10-spoke wheels and Goodyear radials give the truck a beefy stance. Inside, the 2004 Dodge Ram SRT-10’s “Best in Class Interior” features heavily bolstered leather racing seats, SRT badging and the iconic Hurst shifter, an absolute must for any driving enthusiast. Exterior treatments include a distinctive hood, “Le Mans-type” racing stripes and a rear deck spoiler. This particular one-off example of a Dodge Ram SRT-10 also comes with the car cover.

I used to love going to Cars and Coffee in Irvine, California. The operative words are “USED TO.” Before his death a few years ago, my friend, Formula 5000, IMSA and Trans-Am champion Tony ‘a2z’ Adamowicz and I would go together and hang out – running into guys like Dan Gurney, Jay Leno and so […]

We recently reported on the collector car community being called to action. Well, the calls continue: There has been some fine print in the Kansas regulations regarding vintage vehicles that states that any modifications made to a vehicle more than 35 years old can violate the owner’s right to an antique license plate. “The vast […]
There is something magical about a V12 engine. They are under the hoods of some of the most-exclusive high-performance cars in the world. Think Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Aston Martin. The sound of a V12 engine is unlike any other engine type, with a turbine-like whirr that is absolutely addicting. There is a downside with a […]

Editor’s note: The first sports car driven by our East Coast editor, Andy Reid, was an MGB, back when he was just 14 years old. But it wasn’t until 2019 that he actually owned such a car, a 1967 MGB GT. He began to restore the car, hoping to be done in time to drive […]

You may have been among those parents who used to put the baby into the car seat and go for a drive so the infant would actually go to sleep in the evening. Nissan claims that 60 percent of parents rely on such “dream driving” to help their babies go to sleep and therefore the […]
