    This is my 3rd Challenger, my first non-black one. It is Ivory Tri-Coat.

    Gosh no, one at a time. I will trade my 2011 SRT8 in probably. It will be almost 5 years old and about 60K miles.

    Not sure where you are located but it might be sooner than you think. My HC was built wed/thur last week and KZ Friday. Expect to pick it up tomorrow as it is being trucked directly from Angola NY VDC to the dealer in MD. 5 days from KZ to delivery. Wasn't expecting that but it's a blessing for sure since we have our first big snow coming Friday and the salt the roads here like Armageddon is coming. Good luck getting your car soon !!!!

    It is a 6.4 and I live Houston, TX. When I ordered my 2009, we had the capability to track the car from D1 to delivery to the dealer. I actually logged in mutiple times tracking the rail car as it passed certain check points. All the same, I will be glad when it gets here.

    That's awesome! Congrats...it will be out of trim in one day...the longest part now is going to be delivery. Expect it to take a few weeks to get from the plant to your dealer, and another day for the dealer to prep it. You should ask the dealer not to detail it, as they usually do more damage than good. If you're going to get the hood or front bumper wrapped in clear film, your detailer will have to remove whatever wax they put on there anyway. Just a heads up from experience. Also, make sure to ask the dealer not to drill the front plate bracket into your bumper. It's normal to take 2-3 weeks for the car to get from the factory to the rail yard, and then from the rail yard to the dealership. Weather has a huge effect on that as well. It took my Hellcat 2 weeks to make a 45 minute drive from the rail yard to my dealer because of snow.

    When you do get it, enjoy it...it is quite the car. I think I almost cried when I sat in mine for the first time.
