    Hello Everyone!

    I ordered a 2016 Black Challenger HC and it delivered to the train yard in Tampa, FL on the 2nd. We have been waiting patiently and wondering how long does it take to get from the train yard to the dealership? I purchased from Jerry Ulm Dodge and they indicated there is not much they can do. The delivery date is scheduled between 3-8th of December so they are well within that window but its just crazy that its taking so long. Understandably, I am impatient lol.

    Traded in a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit plus a bunch of cash, don't like large payments. :)

    Mine came in to rail yard on the 2nd. They are anticipating it tomorrow, fingers crossed! BTW, they offered to tint the car for no charge but they could only go 28% FL law, I was considering a little darker 20% and take my chances. Any thoughts?

    Hello, and welcome! Grtz on the incoming Hellcat! I drove my HC home on 12/17/14, after it had been sitting at the rail yard for over a week. I remember the frustration, and sympathize completely. Here is some music to help pass the time, LOL! :)

    The first batch of cars were sitting in a storage yard almost two full months before going to the dealer....the yard was five miles from my house. It sucks

    Thanks April!!!!!
    I am hoping tomorrow or the next day. The dealership seems to be on it pretty hard because I wouldn't complete all of the paperwork until the vehicle comes in and if there were any crazy delays I would cancel my purchase and look elsewhere. The salesman told me he has the lot attendant in high gear to make sure this happens. I am hoping that it arrives first thing in the AM. It's hard to focus on work lol.

    They have the rail yard down on lock. There is no visiting.
