    Well guys my wait for my Hellcat is finally over and the anticipation was well it. With the VON hell that many people have gone through I must admit I was very hesitant, but my order experience was outstanding. I had ordered every option available (except the engine block heater) with hopes there wouldn't be any snags or delays with parts for the build completion in Brampton. From allocation order to delivery the car came much earlier than expected and I couldn't be happier. Took it straight off the truck with 2 miles.

    Allocation order with VON Oct 15th
    Brampton Built 11/30 - 12/3
    Took delivery 12/26

    What an awesome ride guys! Thanks everyone for all the expertise and help along the wait (way). :)

    Love the Hellcat. That is an amazing combo with the black hood. I hope that you have many years of enjoyment.

    Is that your Viper, that's awesome looking too

    Thanks man!

    No, that was an ACR Viper that the new owner was taking delivery the at same time I was. I thought it was a nice picture of them together.

    It is, it's like the viper is the exact opposite of the Hellcat, with the black paint and the red stripe.

    Great looking car neighbor! Hope the weather lets you put a few miles on it before the cold white wet stuff and all of the deicer shows up!

    Congrats on the new ride! Did you ask the Viper owner to race you out the lot?!

    It's funny you mention that because I was thinking the same thing when we were talking. He said it was for his "race" team and he had 4 other Vipers besides this new ACR. Picked it up that day at the dealer with an enclosed trailer straight off the showroom floor.

    Very sweet ride Gixer! Love the color and ALL the options you picked. Curious what your MSRP was with all the goodies. Keep the pic's coming as you gush over your new prize. Congratulations and welcome to the brother and sisterhood!

    Thanks a lot. I too had debated on the satin hood with the added issues and paint delays. It's an expensive option and people were saying its so much cheaper to just have the factory color matched painted hood either re-painted in satin matte black or wrapped in satin after receiving it, but I like the originality of the car with all factory options along with matching the original factory sticker. I think that if I was to ever trade it in or sell to some car collector in later years it would hold more value with a factory optional satin hood than with a Joe's Body Shop satin painted/wrapped hood. IMO
