    I picked up my cat over the weekend. Long drive from Lima Ohio to Des Moines, Iowa. As others have stated the first 100 miles are rough (especially with "I can't drive 55 on the radio!"). I had numerous people pull up along side me, some for several minutes, to take pictures, give a thumbs-up etc. The dealership was awesome. I have to thank Bob Schmersal and Jeremy at Tom Ahl Chrysler in Lima Ohio. This is a relatively small dealership and I believe only ordered a few hellcats this year. I would definitely order another car from them. I was treated with upmost respect and given constant updates. Excellent communication and easy buying process. By the way, they are an MSRP dealer and will be taking orders for 2016. I'm sure they would love to have your business also. I will post pictures later as I am at work today but so far I love the car (I know it didn't happen unless there are pictures). Yes its fast but I was more impressed with how easy it was to drive. I had no issues with the over 500 mile drive at all. The car is flawless. No paint defects. No strange noises. I could not be more pleased. I took some video driving it yesterday and I will try to upload that sometime soon as well. Also, thanks to members of the forum for keeping me sane during the waiting game. My heart goes out to those who ordered well before me and still have not taken delivery or have had their order pushed back to next year.

    Congrats!

    Fortunately, I live near some mountains that have sharp curves... I plan on breaking in my cat on those, since there are few opportunities to get above 55 mph on those roads. :D

    Congrats on the Hellcat. Yes, the first 500 miles are something else. I'm at 430miles now. Been flawless. Feel like a Rock Star when I drive into Mopar Car Shows. Gets a lot of attention and questions. Very proud owner. (Amazingly, most folks still don't know a hellcat comes in four-doors.)

    After 500 I was able to get it up to 130 without breaking a sweat. Needless to say Iowa City to Des Moines did not take long. Get out there and get 70 more miles on her. It becomes another level of excitement.

    I live in Ohio, and have not had great results dealing with any local Dodge dealer I've talked to. I wonder if they'd be able to help me with ordering a Challenger HC, even a 2016 if I have to?

    It doesn't hurt to ask. Call the dealership. Ask for Bob. Drop my name, Dr. Kopp. He checks this site by the way as I am sure a lot of dealers do.

    Coolest Kat out there...congrats! You got the one I ordered from Bob but I found another in Olathe, Ks. and bought instead. Just curious, did your window sticker have a built for name on it?

    Kary, Bob and I talked about you when I picked it up. He actually was nervous he would not be able to sell it after you ordered it and cancelled! Thanks for the MSRP cat. I saw your post and sat on it for 3-4 days before I decided to call. I was shocked to find out it was still available. Bob said not more than a few minutes after I called and put a deposit down he had dozens more calls. It really is flawless. Thanks again for the post. Yes, the window sticker had my name on it. I hope you are enjoying yours as well!
