Of these units, 983 were designated for sale in the United States, 39 called Canada home and 66 found their way to various foreign ports. In its initial two production years, the Viper was only produced in two colors: red and black.

One of these limited black 1993 units is now yours for the taking. A rarity on the market, this extraordinary example has just north of 16,000 original miles and has been meticulously garaged in an environmentally controlled storage facility. Prior to this sale, the vehicle’s interior and exterior have been professionally massaged to ensure a near-perfect presentation.
The 8-liter V-10 gasoline-fueled engine produces 400 horsepower with 462 foot-pounds of torque. Estimated fuel numbers are 12 in the city and 20 on the highway with a 22-gallon fuel tank. All this powers the Viper RT-10 from zero to sixty in just 4.4 seconds and can get through the ¼ mile in a speedy 13 seconds.
Whether you’re looking for a low-mileage, pristine “collector” vehicle, or simply want to look super cool cruising up and down Lake Shore Drive, this Viper is the car for you. In addition to all the bells and whistles included with the car, your purchase provides you with a very favorable income tax potential. So open your wallet, fasten your seatbelt and get ready for a true Detroit performance moment.

And of course, one of the most important events held in this room is the one we celebrate tonight – the Action Auction – an evening where we gather to support this very important place in this very important space.The Tracy Fieldhouse has provided us with so much and has given so many opportunities to our students. We want to see that continue, but as time will often do, it has taken its toll.

9 - Drive and Shoot WWII Tanks
Live
Details
Details: Did you ever wonder what it would be like to drive and shoot a round from a WWII tank? Imagine no longer, as this is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to drive and shoot fully functional tanks, artillery, machine guns and other weapons of war.
DriveTanks is the only location in the world that offers this exhilarating experience. You and five of your friends will travel two hours outside of San Antonio, Texas to Ox Ranch where you will marvel at the 18,000 acres of land on which the hunting ranch calls home. Besides DriveTanks, Ox Ranch is home to thousands of animals from over 50 different species, including white buffalo, kangaroo, zebras and giraffes.
Your all-day adventure begins on a late war version of the iconic Sherman tank, a Sherman E8, and the only functional model left in the world. Drive this monstrous tank to the war zone course, where you’ll find obstacles, drop-offs, spring-fed crossings and a few other surprises. You will also get a chance to drive on the T-34, a premier Soviet tank, and the Kettenkrad, a half-motorcycle, half-tracked vehicle used as a lightweight tractor to transport troops, tow equipment and lay communication wire. DriveTank’s Kettenkrad was captured in Belgium in 1944 and shows bullet holes and battle damage.
Next, you’ll get to fire off actual tank rounds, not powder puff propane shots that you’ll find elsewhere. Shoot from guns in all the tanks listed above, plus the following:
German Half Track and PAK-40
PACK-113 Anti-Tank Gun
105mm Howitzer WWII Artillery Piece
MG-42 machine gun
MP-40 sub machine gun

There is no set age limit at DriveTanks, so if your family likes to go big, this will be a welcome change from another beach vacation in Naples. Kids as young as eight have shot on the property and children twelve and older have driven tanks. There is no need for recoil management control, as there are several mounts to shoot from. This allows the experience of shooting machine guns without the strength that may otherwise be necessary. No matter who you take with you on this trip, it’s going to be a blast!
Mutually agreed upon date. Not eligible for resale or transfer. Only one person may drive and shoot each vehicle. Additional drivers may be added at a 20% discounted rate. Accommodations at the Barracks includes one room for one night only. Rollaway bed provided free of charge. Additional night stays may be added at winner’s cost.

This 20" x 30" piece depicts a flowering Bradford pair tree painted on paper and is framed to complement the painting's bold Expressionistic style.  The piece is titled, “Love and Beauty Anew”.  Colin chose to paint an extreme close-up of a branch of the Bradford Pear Tree in his backyard.  "As it does every year, it started to bloom last month as I was brainstorming about an idea for the painting.  Noticing the blooms, I could not think of a better image for the school that truly nurtures my children every year – the Academy inspires them to be life-long learners.  I painted the flowers with watercolor to capture the ephemeral joy of nurturing children as they grow and change every day.  I also employed my illustration technique with pen & ink to show the infinite complexity and beauty in each detail of our children – the pen and ink designs are created to be whimsical and enchantingly complex."  Colin Darke is a contemporary watercolorist—he received comprehensive training in watercolor painting and has developed a unique and powerful style. In describing his art, The Detroit News said Colin employs “a bold, colorful style reminiscent of the German Expressionists.” He shows extensively throughout Michigan and New York, and in 2010 Rackstraw Downes, a 2009 MacArthur Fellow, selected one of Colin’s pieces for the 18th Annual National Juried Exhibition at the Bowery Gallery in New York City. Colin has also illustrated for the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Museum of Contemporary Arts-Detroit. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with an emphasis in watercolor painting from Western Michigan University (students are juried into this program and Colin primarily studied under watercolorist Professor Lou Rizzolo—he also studied Chinese calligraphy at this time, which influenced his brushwork).
