Dodge wants 93 Vipers given to colleges and schools crushed

Dodge has made a decree that won't sit well with car guys and gals around the world no matter what brand you prefer. Dodge gave a bunch of vipers to community colleges and schools over the years for their technical programs.

Apparently, Dodge ran into a bit of trouble when students took the cars or joyrides and ended up in accidents early on in the program. Since Dodge gave the cars to the schools, apparently they have the final say over what happens to the cars.

The final say of Dodge at this point is that they want all 93 of these early Viper cars crushed in the next two weeks reports Motor Authority. One of the cars is very rare and would bring a bunch of money on the open market. This car is a blue and white 1992 Viper pre-production car with VIN #4. That car was given to South Puget Sound community college in Olympia Washington.

That makes this one of the first of the Vipers built and some think the car could be worth as much as $250,000 at auction. An official from the college confirmed that an email was received form Dodge ordering the car to be crushed after the entire educational fleet was terminated. Word is that the cars weren't meant to ever drive on the streets, but some were and the two that were wrecked resulted in millions of dollars in liability for Dodge since it owns the cars.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
