As I write this, it’s Monday morning and Day Three of this year’s journey from Portland, OR to Monterey Car Week.

ACC’s Viper GTS ACR Coupe has been a great car — in the few years we’ve owned it, we’ve covered a bunch of miles in it with no trouble — all it’s needed other than oil changes and periodic cleaning was a set of tires.
