    Got this email from my dealer
    Today 11/7/14
    We just talked to our rep, and we have not been given any idea of any allocation yet. We have heard the rumors that some dealers have got allocations. Your order is still good, but we do not know anything yet. I think there is a lot of speculation do to the excess demand for this vehicle. I don't think Dodge has that figured out yet. As soon as we get any info we will pass it on.

    Is my dealer full of it or could this be true?

    Might be late in the game to switch

    I would assume your dealer is talking about the second allocation which wont be announced until early December. If they did not receive notification in September, then they were not given one in the first allocation.

    If I and others can email Tim Kuniskis and get no answers, only false promises--- then why should we assume that a dealer is in any different position.
    I suspect that when FCA dumps all it's old inventory of Prostar Vans and Fiats, to the large dealers who can afford to take such in trade for Hellcat Allocations--- then and only then will things change.
    When the market reaches saturation and ADM is no longer being paid for lot cars--- then FCA will build the sold orders that we have all signed contracts for at full MSRP and above.
