    I just got a voicemail from a dealer a couple days ago stating that A) Orders are reopened if I want to order a Hellcat (I missed the cutoff by 2 days) and B) he has a Charger Hellcat inbound at MSRP if I am interested.

    Now... I cannot possibly imagine the order banks being reopened, especially since I see nothing on here about it, but I haven't spoken to this guy in two months... so I can't imagine him just deciding to call me after all this time just for fun.

    Has anyone heard something similar to this? He was off yesterday and I am about to call and get some details, just wanted to see what you all thought.

    I am interested in what you find out, please let us know. Like you, I have seen nothing on the forum about orders being reopened.

    I can imagine that would be pretty big news here.

    That makes sense, except I would have expected that maneuver 2 months ago. The only thing I can think of is that somebody backed out on the Charger, it's inbound and he is calling people like me about it...that I get... but telling me I could order a Challenger if I wanted was pretty puzzling. Oh well. I just called and he is out until Monday for National Guard so I'll ask then. I'm 99% sure it's BS, just curious as to the how/why of it.

    Please post the info of the dealer so other interested folks can check out the charger.

    Ok, Just got off the phone with a girl that was a bit clueless, but what she said made sense.

    Order banks are NOT open, as I suspected.
    They have a Charger Hellcat "inbound" with no VIN... yeah, inbound isn't the correct verbiage at all you idiots.

    So I think what happened is somebody did indeed back out, they have a VON(?) and can potentially fulfill that VON as an order. IE it means basically nothing. I'll chat with my guy on either Sunday or Monday whenever he gets back and get the actual details, but I'm far from excited lets put it that way.

    Sorry if I got anyone's hopes up, just had to vent my latest piece of this nightmare. I edited the title of the thread accordingly. :'(

    Hey, it was worth a post. Now we all know, and knowing is half the battle (at least according to G.I. Joe). :D

    It would be interesting if you can get the VON #from him and see if it is a cancelled sold order from page 1.

    That's exactly what I'm going to check when we speak on Monday, I'm very curious about this entire thing.

    I am thinking with orders and order mods closed, any "name " change to a current Von would need to go thru FCA area rep. They might not approve it. Just my opinion.

    That's a very good point. I'll bring that up as well. Thanks!
