    hi gang,

    just got off the phone with my sales rep at ourisman jeep dodge in clarksville, md 21029.

    he advised my A8 allocation for a challenger hellcat i had a deposit was now available to order.
    i declined the allocation since it was months late and i have a deposit with a vin and build date
    for a gt350.

    he also advised that a stock white challenger hellcat M6 would be arriving in days at the dealership
    available for msrp.

    he is aware i'm posting this on the forum and will be at the dealership today till 9 and all day tomorrow.

    srt sales rep jason kerr 301-596-9990.

    all vehicles at mrsp and the A8 allocation would be built in the 6-8 week time frame.

    good luck everyone.

    Thanks for the post. Good luck with the Shelby. Seems like they hit a home run with that car. What the ETA on the ford?

    my build date is around christmas and about a 4 week delivery so i'm guessing around february for the shelby. i got lucky with a msrp allocation on the shelby and i was up in the air with the challenger so i was going to take delivery on whomever got me a vin and a build date first. i was in a win win situation.

    the universe has a way of rewarding good behavior. hope you get the car you always wanted. once we get our cars, we can meet up for cars and coffee.

    best everyone.

    That's pretty quick. Do you mind sharing what options you are getting? Also do be a stranger on here when it gets in. I want to hear your personal thoughts on the car after you drive it. Do you plan on any track days?

    compared to the hassle of locating and ordering a hellcat, ordering the shelby gt350 was painless. pretty much what you would expect, put deposit on the car, wait a couple of months and pick up the car. i got a 2016 tech package all black with black interior. 58.5k msrp.

    i wanted the hellcat to be a boulevard cruiser so i wanted an automatic and for some reason when the order banks opened up in sept again my dealer didn't have an a8 allocation. i still don't understand that at all but i told him i would wait for a8.

    then the gt350 was close to release so i was late to the party but heck instead of a cruiser i would go back to pure sports car. i sold multiple m3's to get into a hellcat and go in a different direction. it wasn't meant to be so the gt350 will be more of what i'm used to and a boulevard cruiser will have to wait.

    i do plan on tracking the gt350 at lime rock in ct. never been a track guy but figured this will be a good way to get into and maybe invest in the time to learn to be a better driver.

    i'm planning to get get matte black stripes put on the car. for some reason you couldn't order black stripes on a black car except the r version and that had red pinstripe outlines.

    any who finished rambling.

    ps. saw a video comparison between a z28 and gt350.
    consensus was, mustang had better fit and finish, z28 had more low end torque, mustang power didn't kick in until 3500rpm but steady all the way to 8200 redline, better exhaust note for the mustang and the mustang was preferred overall.

    i got the tech package. you either got a base, tech or track package or the r package.

    i hope everything goes good for you. i have no reason to doubt you wouldn't. for me i wanted an automatic and they only had allocations for a manual when the order banks opened up.

    btw, jason sent me a text this morning of my refund receipt. these guys have been no hassle and a straight up dealership.

    Action jack, there is a road course in north east Ohio called Nelson ledges. They have track days regularly and it's very informal. They have an instructor there for your first time out and then they send you own your own unless you ask or need for help. The pavement is not in great shape but for the price you won't find a better deal. And like I said it's a very laid back atmospehere with zero egos there. Might be worth checking out and if you do let me know..

    thank you for the heads up. that would be a great road trip. my oldest son just started high school and before he graduated i pledged we would go to every baseball stadium. last summer we did all the east coast and chicago and pittsburgh. we have gone to 12 with 18 to go. that would be a good way to knock out cleveland and cinncinati.

    always looking for a reason to road trip.

    cheers,
