Updated: Feb 9
We may only be half way through the winter, but our summer plans are really heating up! And regardless of the time of year, we are constantly working to best support our membership and sponsors. Read on to see what we’re up to!
Supporting Our Vipers
Maintaining aging and low volume vehicles that are long out of production can be a real challenge. We’re extremely proud to have built strong ties with our Chrysler dealer sponsors, the manufacturer and a multitude of new, used, rebuilt and aftermarket Viper parts suppliers. We've even negotiated some parts discounts for our Ontario members. We know where to find whatever is needed, and if we can’t get it, likely no one can.
The VCO is committed to providing an unsurpassed Viper ownership experience with a network of Viper technical experts at our Chrysler dealerships and other sponsors, on our club’s Board, and within our own membership where many have gained specific knowledge and hands-on experience over many years. Watch for new initiatives coming.
When you support our club and sponsors you are directly supporting our club’s comprehensive resources that Viper owners in Ontario depend on. We’re all Viper owners, we all benefit from maintaining these important resources, and you can be confident they’ll be there when you need them. Thank you for your VCO support!
Support When Selling
Your VCO membership is now fully transferrable to the new owner should you decide to sell. This is a benefit to you as the purchase of a club member's Viper provides buyer confidence, and the anticipation of experiencing the included benefits of club membership! You can even advertise the sale of your Viper for free on our Market Place!
Supporting Events for Fun & Charity
We’re once again planning over 50 club events across Ontario, with something for everyone. This year we’re combining some social and performance driving events with our Drive for Charity initiative in support of very worthwhile charities like The James Fund at SickKids, Juvenile Diabetes and Ronald MacDonald House.
Our Vipers and member's participation are the perfect vehicles to combine with the efforts of our sponsors, other car clubs, and media outlets to make these events a real success for improving children’s lives! Charity events are being added to our calendar!

Welcome New Members
We’re very pleased to welcome Andy & Denise Presland, Essex (near Windsor), They've owned their yellow 2001 RT-10 for over 20 years! We look forward to meeting you both soon at some events!
Mark June 11th on Your Calendar
The VCO’s Annual Viper Show & Lunch Meeting will be by far our largest event of the year, as it was last year when we first held one. We’re hoping everyone will attend and help make this unique event an even bigger success with 75-100+ gleaming Vipers! It will be held at Hagerty Garage + Social in Burlington...see the calendar event listing.
Lunch will be provided again for each member, there will be gifts, draws and Members Choice Show Awards, and we're also working on some exciting new features!
Please put this one on your calendars right away and email Bruce if you plan to attend at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will help our planning effort enormously...thank you!
