    I had the hardest time selecting the color of my Cat.

    My first choice was sublime with a black hood but the wife said no to that.....

    Then I kicked around B-5 Blue, Pitch Black, Ivory White and Jazz Blue. I don't know how many times I changed my mind between these four colors. I even tried to add sublime back to the mix when I thought that my wife was tired of the discussion but again she said no...

    The four choices were whittled down to three...Pitch Black, Ivory White and Jazz Blue...then to two and finally down to my final selection (via a coin toss) of Pitch Black. I love the look of a black car when it is clean and I don't mind doing the work to maintain the appearance.

    I know that some people knew right away what color they wanted and didn't give it a second thought. If Plum Crazy was an option, I would have definitely ordered Plum Crazy with a black hood to remind me of my old "70 AAR Cuda.

    Am I the only person that struggled with this issue?

    Oh, if only I had enough $ and space to get one of every color.

    After it is all said and done, I am happy with my selection.....the Cat looks evil dressed in black.

    Not a problem at all. I wanted Plum Crazy but it was not an option when I ordered in Sept 2014. The only throw back color available was Sublime so, the Sublime looks real good next to my 08 in Hemi Orange. :-0

    I knew from the beginning what color I was getting. That has to be a badass sight when you have the R/T and the Cat side by side. Good color choice.

    It's an SRT8 #904. ;) There were no R/T's in 2008.

    I went through the same process. I ordered Torr red based off of magazine pics. When I saw it in person, I did not like it as much as I thought I would. I switched to Sublime. I saw Sublime with silver wheels on a RT and did not care for that look. I did not realize until later that the silver washed out the Sublime. When I saw Sublime with black wheels on a Scat Pack, with the black stripe, I was convinced. The Torr red was never built and I jumped in on a 6M Sublime w/black hood.

    I jumped around but in the end I have wanted a white car for a long time. So I went with that.

    "Not a problem at all. I wanted Plum Crazy but it was not an option when I ordered in Sept 2014. The only throw back color available was Sublime so, the Sublime looks real good next to my 08 in Hemi Orange. :-0"

    Throw back colors... B5 is definitely throw back, just wasn't available for early orders. There was never really any other option for me, B5 is awesome. Have had numerous complements on it.

    We knew that we wanted/preferred a white Challenger, The hard part was choosing between the 'Ivory' and 'Bright' white. At one point we were fortunate enough to have an Ivory and Bright sitting side by side, but it was on a very over-cast day. In the end we chose Bright White for 2 reasons. First, to us it seemed more in line with the retro theme. Second, the Bright White just seemed to,,, "POP", more. It seemed to project more of a presence. The only secondary color we would've liked to have seen 'in person', was the Redline.

    I went sublime without thinking twice. After seeing all the other colors posted...I have to say I should have at least given it more thought! Seeing the colors on the computer when you're building your Cat doesn't come close to seeing these hi-res pics!

    For me it was sublime or nothing

    probably 1/2 the reason i sold my 2011 and upgraded to a HC was the color...always wanted sublime

    if i wouldnt have gotten an A8 Sublime i would have not gotten a HC
