#Viper, #Dodge Viper,

The Viper is no longer produced, but in the last fiscal quarter Chrysler dealers still recorded sales of a few brand new Dodge Vipers. So is it possible now, to still buy a brand new Viper. SST Car Show host Rick Walker has the story.

The Dodge Viper is a sports car that was manufactured by Dodge (SRT for 2013 and 2014), a division of American car manufacturer FCA US LLC from 1991 through 2017, having taken a brief hiatus in 2007 and from 2010 to 2012. Production of the two-seat super car began at New Mack Assembly Plant in 1991 and moved to Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in October 1995.

The Viper was initially conceived in late 1988 at Chrysler's Advanced Design Studios. The following February, Chrysler president Bob Lutz suggested to Tom Gale at Chrysler Design Center that the company should consider producing a modern Cobra, and a clay model was presented to Lutz a few months later. Produced in sheet metal by Metalcrafters,[5] the car appeared as a concept at the North American International Auto Show in 1989. Public reaction was so enthusiastic that chief engineer Roy Sjoberg was directed to develop it as a standard production vehicle.

In October 2015, Fiat Chrysler group announced that the Viper would end production in 2017.[36] Initially, Fiat Chrysler cited poor sales as a reason for discontinuing the Viper; however, other sources have stated the car was discontinued because the Viper was unable to comply with FMVSS 226 safety regulation, which requires side curtain air bags.[37] In July 2017, Fiat Chrysler announced they would be permanently closing the Conner Assembly Plant on August 31, 2017.[38]

#watercolor #tutorial #easy #beginner #viper #snake #reptile

For the beginner who has trouble drawing I show an easy tracing method and a less boring way to explore different shades of green. This is not a lengthy detailed painting. It is a simple, quick method.
I used Arches Cold Press 140 lbs. It's often inexpensive at Jerry's Artarama website. I think the size of paper I used was 10 x 14 inches, something like that.

Here is the link to where the reference photo was found and the excellent photographer who took the photo, which was Diego Madrigal at Pexels website. https://www.pexels.com/photo/green-viper-2062314/
(If you don't see the snake image, just scroll down until you do.)

It's a great photo/image to practice watercolor. You'll discover different ways of painting it if you paint it more than once. Use different paper and paints and see the difference as you also better your skills through experience, trial, and error.

After you have painted this a couple of times on a small scale, exploring different ways to approach and complete this image, try doing it on a much larger scale. It's a good way to practice drawing with a less complicated image.

Fun fact: Take a cell phone photo of your painting as you paint it. View your painting on your phone. It often helps instantly see areas needing correction or attention to.

A quick look round a Viper V10 Dax Cobra Chassis, taking approximately 60 seconds or so.

Dax Cars was founded in 1968 and started as a fiberglass moulding company. In 2017 the production of the Dax 427 was sold to JK sports cars.

It is unknown if this chassis was built for display purposes only, or if this car was ever finished.

If you are the owner, or even if you know anything about this car, please feel free to drop a comment and offer up some details. I’d love to know more about it.

A quick look round a Venom Dodge Viper Replica, taking approximately 60 seconds or so.

Steve Briddon, Roy Morris and Terry Sands founded the company in 1990. The Venom appeared in 1995 and was similar to the Dodge Viper.

Originally, Fiero Factory imported a Chevrolet Corvette- based model from the USA. But later they developed a new kit version based on the Ford Granada donor car and a ladder frame chassis.

Venom Sports Cars took over production in 2003. On April 8, 2014, the company was dissolved.

If you are the owner, or even if you know anything about this car, please feel free to drop a comment and offer up some details. I’d love to know more about it.
