If there is one thing that YouTube has shown us about the automotive community, it’s that no car is exempt from neglect. It doesn’t matter how sought after or rare it might be. There are definitely just some situations where circumstance determines that the machine in question just can’t be kept up. From exotics all the way to old school American muscle and everything in between, no machine is too good for being left to the elements and wear of use.
This time, we check in with a car that might make somebody a little bit sad to see has been let go. Back in its day, the Dodge Viper RT/10 was quite a machine. In fact, many would argue that it was a strong showing for what exactly America could do with their version of a supercar at the time. All these years later, it definitely is a machine that has maintained its respect.
However, for this example, things just didn’t exactly pan out so well.
Over time, it appears as if both use and neglect have really gotten the best of this machine. At the end of the day, this one is going to need a little bit of love in order to get back to any sort of product that resembles what it used to be.
This time, though, we get to check-in with the first step in that process. With a car like this that isn’t running, naturally, number one is going to be to get it fired up.
Sometimes, the machines in question might be a little bit too far gone. However, we got a feeling that this Viper is going to have a little bit more potential than that. Will it ever be a show quality machine? I guess that only time will tell. For now, let’s just take a couple of baby steps in the right direction and feel good about the job well done by Advanced Level Auto.
