    Hello All, new member here.

    Now that Fall has arrived and daylight hours shorter, I've found myself spending more and more time watching YouTube. And I've come down with a fever and the only prescription is a Hellcat...lol

    I'm the original owner of my 2009 Hemi-Orange SRT Challenger, M6, with a Procharger, but there's something about the Cat that's clawing at me...pun intended.

    I was bummed to hear that there's no sublime or hemi-orange. When I purchased my 09', I was going back and forth between HO and B5. Glad I went with HO, but B5 is no slouch either. If only PCP or GoMango were a little brighter. It's a little disheartening to hear that the transmission type is being tied to the allocation as I would go with the A8 this time around, given two left knee surgeries and the performance increase.

    Only have one minor obstacle in my way, no scratch that, one huge obstacle...my wife. But a man can dream can't he? See, she's a Dream Killer without even knowing it, because I haven't even brought it up to her and I already know the answer. I just know her DK ways...sigh.

    Anyway, I've entered my name into an allocation lottery and results will be announced in a few weeks, so if I can convince the DK and win the allocation, my fever will be cured. Got a lot of work to do in a short amount of time. Otherwise, I'll be living vicariously through you fine Cats.

    Welcome! Wish I could help but there really is no logical argument for the Hellcat. Try guilting, begging and pleading! Cash in any and all credit you may have with her for the rest of your life. It'll be worth it for this car! As long as you are not braking yourselves financially. In that case, even I say you should hold off.

    Easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

    This is my dilemma, I don't have a logical argument...nothing, nada, zip. We're in a good position financially, but perhaps we are where we are because of her. Now it's time to spend..haha.

    So true, but just don't have the gonads to pull the trigger :>(

    Not sure about all dealers, but Military Auto Source here in Germany does them. MAS is a subdivision of Overseas Military Sales (OMS), which is one of the largest FCA dealers, so they get quite a few allocations to spread throughout their regions.

    The wife said yes! Now I just need to get picked for an allocation on Monday's lottery draw. Fingers crossed.

    I can't believe it either, the DK (Dream Killer) actually gave me the go ahead. Still in shock.

    Not really, she can't drive a stick and even if she did learn, it's too big of a car for her to drive.

    She actually bought my 2009 SRT 6spd for me as an early retirement present, so technically, this should still be the case since I will have to sell it to upgrade to the Hellcat :D
