    First let me start by saying this post is not meant to P!$$ off anyone who has been waiting since day 1 or for that matter anyone who has been painfully waiting for their car. I can only imagine your frustration with the process and the time you have spent wondering if your car will ever be manufactured.

    I placed an order for a Sublime M6 with satin hood on the last day order banks were open. My dealer (Hunt Chrysler in Milton, Ontario, Canada) was very open and honest about where I was in their queue and that Hellcat orders could hardly be guaranteed at this point. They took a modest down payment($1000) and told me to check back with them anytime I wanted for an update. I had been following the site for some time so I was fully prepared and appreciated the fact that the dealer was not trying to lie or screw me in any way. Very professional, very knowledgeable. Well a week ago I get a call from the dealer and was dreading news that my order was not going to be fulfilled. Not so fast, as it turns out, a gentleman had ordered a car 2 days before me at the same dealership and his order got picked up right and went D1(lucky bugger). The same gentleman got nailed for DUI 2 weeks ago and called his insurance company and they quoted him in the neighborhood of $20K a year for insurance on the hellcat! needless to say he had to walk away from the order. So back to the dealer calling me, e said that his father, owner of the dealership, had placed an order on day 1 as well for a hellcat and that order had never been filled. My sales guy called his father and told him the news and asked if he wanted the order given that he had been waiting so long. His father replied something to the effect that if their is a customer who has an order in at our dealership they get first crack at it. I am happy to now say that I own VIN #FH849860 and it is being built to my exact specifications after a few phone calls to the regional rep. Its a good day here in Milton and my 3 boys are even more excited than I am to finally know the "Hulk" car is coming to our house. My 2 youngest are 7 and 4 so almost everything in our house has an Avengers reference. lol

    Now all I need to do is get an update from RS as to what the schedule looks like on this beast of a car. Here's hoping that everyone still waiting gets to write a story as filled with excitement as mine sometime soon.

    And I am sure you will speak with the owner... and thank him profusely for being such an up and up guy! Lot of dealers down here in the lower 48 would have put the car up for the highest bidder.

    I lucked out with mine in a similar way, except the guy that had ordered the car wasn't sure he wanted Sublime, he backed out i snuck in :)
