    Hi, I am Ed, live in Texas, and awaiting a Hellcat I ordered in early September (currently D1). I have had lots of cars over the years, and other than a few Jeeps, one of which I currently own, no MOPAR cars since the 70S. When I first ordered the car I was so excited I could not sleep in anticipation of driving everywhere sideways. For now I have curbed my enthusiasm until I receive and can experience the car. This is to protect my psyche. I do not want to be frustrated or disappointed by any ultimate delivery facts or any disappointment in the drive. Regardless of what the ultimate facts end up being, they can't be as bad as some of the the posts I have read would lead one to believe. These cars are being built to order and it has only been 8 weeks. So, to all I would urge, curb your enthusiasm and let the process work.

    I like your thought process! Part of my enthusiasm is the anticipation! I am willing to wait for my Hellbaby cause it is worth it! It is my responsibility to keep everyone excited about their new beastie! They are gonna kick butt!:D

    Thanks. It is lots of fun and used often for taking one of the children to school. I doubt that is a duty the Hellcat will get very often, particularly since this particular child will be driving soon.

    Welcome eds! I agree with you. Enjoy the forums and these great people who are posting. They know a lot is speculation but are still willing to share thoughts and opinions in a productive and fun way. Really fun place to enjoy the wait for these cats! Welcome again!

    It's hard to curb your enthusiasm with a car like this,, it's like we're all buying our first fast car

    You are exactly right HC1! Although I am fifty years old, and have owned a decent assortment of quick cars, I feel almost like a teen again, anticipating sitting behind the wheel of a hi-po car for the very first time, it's surprisingly exciting!!!

    Thanks. I'll watch the speculation. The fun for me will come with the car and watching on the site the different things people are doing with the cars. For example, I am particularly anxious to see and benefit from the experience of others with the wheels and tires.
