    Hello my name is Ed from Macomb Michigan. I am a new member as of today, but I have been lurking on this site since its inception. Like many here, I too have been though the ringer trying to secure a Hell Kitty Challenger since August of 2014 for MSRP. I waited too long for various options to come off restriction, then the shortage of automatic transmissions then the total freeze on orders. By the time the sunroof came off of restriction and I could find an MSRP deal, The Sublime paint which was the wife’s choice was gone. We had the truck and trailer loaded three times pointed to both coasts over the summer chasing after a Sublime A8 (Unicorns by mid-summer even without a sun roof) in dealer stock, only for them to be sold out from underneath us as we were fixing to head down the driveway. Now 15 months later, my local MSRP allocation has sailed into port, and my Cat was finally ordered last Friday morning Dec 4th. I now wish I would have at least secured an unfulfilled VON for a 15 in able to obtain a voucher. The same sticker+ 5k ADM that I rejected over and over on principal last year is now MSRP so I did not save anything by waiting. I am however getting the sunroof I wanted and my first choice in color that was not available in 15. It’s going to be a Plum Crazy Auto-8, Laguna black leather, sunroof and brass monkey wheels. I received a VON that same morning and I am relieved that my allocation arrived and car ordered before the deadline for PCP at the end of the month, and hoping to have Resume Speed or one of the other inside the plant members here track it for me on that thread. I've been a Mopar gearhead my whole life and come from a Chrysler family. In addition to the new Cat my wife and I's current stable includes a 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner, 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner, 1964 Plymouth Sport Fury, 1965 Belvedere-1 sedan NSS super stocker, 1978 440 six-pack 4WD Dodge Ramcharger, 1969 Coronet, 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab Dually and a 2011 Hemi Grand Cherokee Overland Summit. We also have two oddballs from GM my wifes 1998 Camaro and my 1968 Olds 442 W-30 I have been restoring and racing old Mopars for close to 40 years and this is my first modern muscle car and very excited to get with the program and share tips and experiences with the group here. First thing on my list when it comes in is a new Dyno Tech one piece driveshaft…..

    My PCP Hellcat just arrived at my dealer today. I'm a little northwest of Detroit. Good luck. You'll love it.

    Yes I am familiar with the various clubs in the area Hellcat1 thanks... I am an active member of the Michigan Mopar Muscle club and many of our members are also members of DAMM which has grown exponentially in the last year or two. I plan on joining the late model party as well.
