    The original Dodge Viper is a special car -- and today I'm reviewing the 1992 Viper. First I'll take you on a tour of this special Viper and show you all the quirks and features of one of the original Dodge Viper models built; then I'll get the Viper on the road and drive it -- and I'll let you know what it's like behind the wheel of Dodge's modern muscle car, the 1992 Viper RT/10.

To be fair, on top of the dashboard are not exposed screws. Those are snap buttons to fit a cockpit cover to protect the interior from rain kind of like a speedboat.

13:30 The original Saturn had a similar "automatic seatbelt feature." Surprised it wasn't covered by a patent, maybe it's a lot older than I'm aware of. Anyhow, it was a worse idea than Doug thinks: you'd not only be un-restrained if the door opens; the story I heard is that some people actually got their necks caught in the belt in a crash and were literally strangled by the seatbelt.

Question for Doug. I understand why brands like Jeep, Cadillac and maybe Dodge have been maintained - but with so many companies being acquired, why maintain legacies such as Mercury, Buick, Pontiac, etc? We always knew that certain cars like the Comet were offered as the Maverick, but why did car companies maintain legacy branding for so long? I think this is an excellent topic for More Doug DeMuro, and given your history with cars, I think you are a great resource for an answer to this.

I thought the Viper was incredible - but even if I won the lottery back then, I would have never paid that much for a Dodge. I don't remember the original price, but I do remember thinking that Dodge was out of its league. Today, I think that was the point. This was their way of stretching the Overton window on domestic car pricing. I don't think the Ford GT would exist without the Viper coming first. Sadly, I don't think that Dodge capitalized on stretching that window as much as their competitors.

The door-mounted seatbelts were a cheap approach to passive restraints. The idea was that you were supposed to leave them latched all the time. When you open the door, you had just enough room to wiggle out from under the seatbelts.

It's the most typical American "sportscar"; big engine, heavy in the front, light at the rear, no downforce, shitty stiff suspension and unknown top speed. They basically just asked a 10 y/o paint a car with crayons, made a real life prototype and put a big engine in it.

I remember in summer 1994 driving a Chevrolet Camaro getting passed by one of these cars on I75 and thinking to myself, let me try and catch up. As soon as I got behind him, he hit the accelerator hard and left me like I was sitting still. I remember the huge width of those rear tires. Great memory!

I'm not sure why anyone would let you film a video in their car so you could crap talk it for 20 minutes. it's amazing how little you know about early 90s auto tech. things that seems shocking to you were pretty common place in 1992. ABS, air bags, traction control. options on some cars. the lever to remove a key, like every Ford built in the 80s and early 90s had that button. should named this video i'm confused by stuff from before my time.

I made it to 11:10. I don't know why I even tried to listen to this idiot. I really don't like any of these guys who get ahold of something, just anything, and act like they are the foremost expert on it. After a while they start sounding like what thy are, and that is self important bozos. This guy needs to quit worrying about this Viper and get into his Volvo wagon and go back to his apartment and leave the critique to people who are passionate about cars and would give an honest look at what is is supposed to be, and that's a weekend sports car for people who might appreciate it. NOT someone wondering where you are going to put junior and sissy in the back seat and where to put the groceries. I didn't make it that far into this, but I am sure that was next....

Why the Viper never caught on is beyond me. Perhaps because you had to know how to actually "drive" a car. Could be the last American car made that right off the dealer lot it would scare the hell out of you. Just like growing old the Dodge Viper ain't for pussies.

I don't understand the obsession with security from 4:15 - 8-ish. So the car is made for rides out of the garage to the countryside, maybe an exclusive club with attended parking, or the race track and back to your garage. Anyone determined to steal it from there also has means to break many a security feature.
