Which car would YOU choose?

Enjoy !


  1. i'd go for Viper Venom 1000

  2. the viper is so beautiful.
    id roll on that bad boy with some mean 24s

  3. Both are sort of ruined by the wing mirrors :S

  4. I am always about manual control, so viper, hands down.

  5. The ME 4-12 because I have never seen one before! The viper has become the most common supper car on the streets

  6. The viper looks too old for me, it's been around for like forever, so I'll take the other one.

  7. even with the increased premium - the Viper hands down

  8. After reading your blog for a few days, Ive realized that these insurance rates are insane. Thats like a mortgage payment every month....

  9. That viper is fckin sick ;D

  10. I would take Chrysler :D

  11. They're both too flashy for me!

  12. I'm probably going to have to go with the cheaper one, strictly because it's cheaper! This is a great idea, i've always wondered what insurance for these insane cars was.

  13. If I could afford it I would choose the Viper. Not really a fan of Chrysler but they are still both super nice cars.

  14. wow that is a lot for auto insurance.

  15. Viper Venom 1000 the BEST:D

  16. Going all off of looks here, the Chrysler. Hands down.

  17. Well I've always had a thing for Vipers. Actually this post makes me happy that I own a cheap car. lol cheap insurance FTW!

  18. I would pay treble the quote so as to drive the Viper Venom 1000.

  19. Wow interesting comparison. I would probably go with the viper though. Never had any idea insurance was that much on those.

  20. Both very sexy. My husband's friend had a Viper. It was always in the shop.

  21. i'm not really a car guy, but this is actually a really interesting concept for a blog. ive always wondered about the insurance rates for those kinds of cars. now, if you ever get bored, you could add in the rates for a under 25 year old male!

  22. i cant even choose which i like, they're both so sleek and awesome looking

  23. i would definitely choose the Chrysler i love how it looks and its a bit cheaper on the wallet insurance wise

  24. I'm gonna have to go with the style of the Viper Venom.

  25. Mmmm that Viper... Nummy

  26. This blog reminds me of the mortgage comparison blog I follow.

  27. AVENGER VIPER just for the sake of the name "So where gonna cruise out on the Viper" or "Wich car do we take the Honda or the Avenger" Sounds awesome makes you feel like a superhero

  28. Chrysler looks cooler :) I'd go with it just because it looks better... I'm never going to get a decent car anyway heh

  29. Definitely the viper, that thing looks sick.

  30. I can't decide, I like the looks of both.

  31. The viper venom looks kind of weirdly shaped...

  32. This a fantastic idea for a blog! Followed!

  33. Hard choice! Probably the viper.

  34. Nice post! I love fast cars. I actually think I would have to go with the Chrysler just because it kinda looks like a lambo, or reminds me of one.

    Thanks for checking out my blog
    Best, Dale

  35. The chrysler one! I love it, thank you for sharing!

  36. Hey! Would you mind if I share your blog with
    my twitter group? There's a lot of folks that I think would really appreciate your content. Please let me know. Cheers

  37. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout
    of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it
    out better?
