Grand opening: Viper Club of America presents the Viper Café
The dedicated and passionate Viper Club of America will open the doors of the all-new Viper Café this weekend, which was custom-built to engage the world's Viper fans in a comfortable space. The Viper-dedicated café is located within the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Key members from the club will join SRT President and CEO Ralph Gilles for the official opening of the new café on Saturday, June 9 at 10am.
Open to the public, the space is stocked with memorabilia and milestones instrumental in the development of the VCA. Rotating displays and updated information ensure that museum guests will always find a fresh reason to visit. A great deal of the materials on display is sourced from the personal collection of Maurice Liang, Founding President Viper Club of America.
Donations from the enthusiastic and generous Viper Club members resulted in over $70,000 in funds needed to complete the project - over six times the initial budget. SRT lead designer Mark Trostle and his team were commissioned to ensure desired elements of the newly created space were fitting of the Viper and its loyal following.
The VCA and Viper fans alike can finally enjoy the new Viper Café after its grand opening this weekend. The ribbon cutting ceremony will be in conjunction with the annual Chrysler Employee Motorsport Association car show. For live coverage, follow driveSRT on Facebook and Twitter.
