    I woke up at about 9am this morning. It was a very slow affair, with much groaning and feeling very, very sick.

    I began to think that maybe, just maybe, the whole bottle of Moscovaka Vodka had been too much. I stumbled over to the cabinet and swallowed four Ibuprofen to stifle the ache. I jumped in the shower and got dressed, all the time cursing the man who invented alcohol.

    Just as I was wondering if my head could hurt any more, or if i had a family of elves with heavy boots living in there, there's a knock at my door.

    I wasn't feeling too hot, so I took my time getting there, expecting it to be someone telling me my cat had thrown up in their garden or something. I opened the door.


    Oh. Hullo.

    Well now. I'd actually forgotten all about this... my main birthday present, four hours of Dodge Viper...

    I listened carefully to the brief (It's the only one in Europe. It's got a race clutch. It's 688bhp. It's fast. It's red. Don't speed), then clambered in.

    It was the most amazing thing ever. Everyone I passed turned and looked, the damned car sounded like Hell's Gates being thrown open and it tore down the tarmac at a terrifying rate.

    Finally I got it to the airfield near me to take some nice pictures:

    Just pulled up!

    Getting out, wobbly legged!

    Looking awesome as ever... I think it's still the most aggressive looking cars out there!

    I don't think I can ever think of my MG as 'sporty' ever again!

    Well, after that lovely bit of ego stroking, I'm off to grab a beer and relax, i'm still a bit shaky after taking that thing and unleashing it. It's not something I could do every day... I'd be dead within weeks! I just regret not having a video camera at the ready to film the whole thing. I didn't dare take my hands off the wheel to take any pictures in motion!

    Still, this is easily my best gift ever, even if it was only for a few hours!

    Best. Birthday. Ever.

    Kick ass!

    There's a guy that has a red "civilian" model who live somewhere near my neighborhood, I always act like I want to race him in my Mini-Van.

    That is awesome, dude. BTW, did you mention to the guy that you were trying to work off a massive hangover whilst double clutching and rippin' em off in third? :D 

    If I ever have the money, a Viper will be at the top of my list.

    "There's no replacement for displacement."

    One of my favorite car rhymes.

    As I was reading and saw it was your birthday and then see the picture of the viper, I began to get really really angry. Then I saw it was a rental thing and thought it was cool.

    I was afraid you were going to be like one of those kids on "My Super Sweet 16" and actually got a viper for your birthday.

    Happy Birthday and sweet gift. It's a sweet ride, and the best part is that you don't have to insure it! I'd love to have 4 hrs in one, or a Porsche GT3, or a Cadillac XLR, or a .............

    What's sad is that i remember when that car first came out. So long ago, and it still hasn't changed much.

    Yes, it turns silver with scales.
