Welcome to Doug Seal owner of Willowbrook Chrysler.  Willowbrook is Western Canada's best Viper Dealer.  Doug collects Vipers to sell much as most dealerships collect cheap cars - but Vipers are not cheap.  Doug recently sold a 96 Hennessey Venom 650R.  Roll caged and low miles, very pretty rare car.

Toll free 1 866 654 5557 for your cheque on his Viper inventory.

Doug often attends local viper events and all brand events in one of his Vipers, which he often brings out and allows the local Viper Club to test drive if they're interested in a purchase.  I get surprised that I see Doug at so many shows and Viper events, but he is often there in a Toxic Orange or a SSGreen Gen 4 (Doug's favourite I think).  He accepts Vipers as trade ins and usually pays a decent price for them.

Doug sponsored the Race the Base entry fee which is extremely high based on 33% "off the top" goes to Charities.  Thanks to Doug for paying my entry as Dodge and Viper were poorly represented at the time.  Only a stock 99 GTS and the Venom 650R were registered.  One or two Challenger SRTs and that was ALL the Dodges shown in the 60 car gallery.  There are about 80 cars registered now.

Thanks for helping all of us Viper fanciers look a little better by supporting my efforts to kick Ferrari, Lamborghini, GTR, ZR1, etc.  Should be posting little Ferrari 599 (and the 2013 Ferrari) as well as the new Aventador stickers with Xs on my doors later .... :lol:   I hope!

Here's Doug standing beside my Roe Racing Supercharged 2001 Sapphire GTS (800bhp) at Race the Base event.  My car was about 5th fastest (198mph/318kph) out of 70 supercars.  Unfortunately my Twin Turbo (1100-1400whp) had a clutch slave failure that left it parked in the garage the day before leaving for the Supercar event.  There were 2 1500whp Lamborghinis, a 1300whp Supra (fastest of the event at 380kph), a detuned Saleen S7 TT (1000whp), a Hefner 1000 Lamborghini, a Maclaren, a 'Black' GTR, etc.

Hey Doug,
It is really great to have people like you supporting people like us. :hayes: I had a great time at Race the Base with you and Ted and interestingly enough just had the President of our company drop by and tell me all about two senior Airforce gents he knows very well that were telling him all about this "Awesome Black with silver stripes Viper (sorry Ted...I did tell him it was ACTUALLY SAPHIRE BLUE :D) that was kicking all the "expensive" cars asses. Thanks again and if you are ever in the Leduc area let me know and we can go for a whiskey.

Expecting Doug and his son to come to the NORC in 3 weeks.  He's even bring a ZR1 for us to beat up on   :P   I think Doug is driving a VV Orange ACR now?

Well, let me tell ya Ted,

When you get that impulse to buy a Viper and its 2000 in Canada, there was one in Calgary, one at Willowbrook and a couple out at Wellington Motors, The guys at the Stealership in Calgary wanted Wayyyy too much money and The Wellington had a silver with Blue stripes (didn't like the color combo at the time and, still don't, sorry)  and some other one I didn't like, so it was Willowbrook or Willowbrook, I had a wedding to go to that weekend in Salmon Arm and Doug offered to hand deliver the car.

yes, he does have the selection.  He does do the customer service well. 

At a VOI he ran the road course so many times we had to add antifreeze when he was done.  he enjoys the car.

I stopped in to see Doug Seal at his Dealership last month.  He asked me to test drive a Paxton supercharged 98 Red GTS for him.  I have supercharged and TT'd Vipers and wrecked a TS supercharged and also owned a Paxton blown Nitrous'd ACR and Doug wanted a comparison informed opinion.  Car was said to be 775whp

Car was definitely fast and if the power delivery was the same this Paxton GTS would beat my Roe Viper.  Shifting into second (after driving the car for a few miles and warming everything up the car would spin the new PS2s through first gear.  Shifting into second gear the tires would hook, until about 4000rpm when the tires would start sliding again.  Nice to drive, but no Ebrake and one or two flaws in the paint.  Easily repaired for a couple thousand.  Owner said car ran 11.2 at Mission Raceway (sea level) which is about how fast the car felt.  Pleasant way to spend a few hours.

Last year when I stopped in at Willowbrook Chrysler Doug offered me the keys to a 2013 Gen 5.  Definitely a wonderful drive.  Nice car and although I wouldn't buy a Gen 3/4 because of the looks, the Gen 5 is nearly as pretty as a Gen 2 GTS.  Surprisingly the car is behind my Roe blown GTS, but not as far behind as I was expecting.  I know that my wife would definitely prefer the Gen 5 over my Vipers ... ::)
