    Yea, it's not the right season to be driving these cars anyways. Not sure which area you're located but we got snow accumulating from last night.

    SWEET car, man... you're gonna love the 392 (have you had one already?)

    I honestly think the wait from ordering a vehicle to delivery is some kind of medieval torture. At least, like you said, the only saving grace is that it is winter and you can't REALLY drive it living in Ottawa (I'm in southern Ontario).

    I think having the car but not being able to drive it would be worse than waiting for it to be built. At least while you're waiting you can try to put it out of your mind. Having it sitting in the garage would be something of a "Tell-tale Heart" scenario... you'd hear that never-ending heartbeat tempting you to open your garage!

    As a side note, it says on your profile that you have/had a Charger Hellcat? Are you getting the Daytona in ADDITION to the Cat or did you sell the Hellcat? If so, why did you get rid of it?

    Ironside, although I've driven many, I've never actually owned one. Been driving a V6 Magnum for the last 9 years.

    As for the Hellcat Charger in my profile; when I first joined, the only options were Hellcat Charger or Challenger. Since my original plan was to purchase a Hellcat Charger, that's what I picked. Unfortunately, circumstances have changed and, barring a lottery win or bank robbery, the Hellcat dream will have to remain a dream.

    Bah, don't even sweat it man. The Hellcat has its place but you're going to fall in LOVE with the 6.4L motor.

    I think you mentioned you weren't even racing it, but even if you WERE, the 392 is a 12 second car. That's pretty wicked!

    Oh, I definitely plan on racing it. Looking forward to joining my friends at MSHS events.
    I have well over 500 passes on the Magnum.

    Oh, nevermind. I think it's the other guy with the 392 on order (from Toronto) who said he wasn't racing it.

    It's been a long night, too hard to keep up with all these Canadian 392 orders! :p

    MSHS events I want to attend include Maple Grove Raceway in Reading PA. June 23-24 and Atco Dragway in Atco, NJ. November 4th.
    I'll probably attend some test & tune events at Toronto Motorsports Park in Cayuga, ON. and St-Thomas Raceway Park in St-Thomas, ON.

    There is a half mile event in Bromont should be end of May. I haven't checked their site lately. Racethehalf.com
    That should only be about 2hrs. Or so from Ottawa.
