Dodge Viper Coupe With Matching Helicopter

This was brought to my attention by my roommate Jason who owns a 93 RT/10 Dodge Viper. He was browsing the Viper forums and happened to come across a thread he knew I would like. Check out this picture of a new Viper SRT Coupe with matching helicopter:

Look closely and you’ll see a M60-D door gun hanging out. Apparently the guy that owns the Viper and chopper is the owner of Northwest Helicopters, a company that specializes in rebuilding helicopters. Here’s a picture of their oh so sweet facility, with 16 helipads:

They were building up the yellow helicopter for a show (I believe it was the Heli-Expo), and they wanted one that would stand out of the crowd. So they all got in a car and drove around all the new car lots looking for a color that stood out, which happened to be yellow. They said the best yellow they could find was Viper Racing Yellow, which was the color of the owners new Viper. They got the paint codes for the yellow and silver, painted the helicopter to match, and attended the show in Orlando, FL. According to the owner, the paint scheme was a big hit. I found a picture of the chopper at the actual trade show on display.
