    I finally was able to get my 2016 Dodge Charger Hellcat last week. I live in South Florida and after a nationwide search for months I finally found a dealer in Wisconsin who had an allocation that had to be filled and would sell for MSRP. After a LONG 1 1/2 months from order date I flew up with my best friend of over 28 years who is also a gearhead to pick it up, we had an epic 3 day 1600 mile drive back home. On the drive home at the last minute we decided to go and drive the tail of the Dragon at deals gap, it's been on our bucket list and we figured hey we're together and in a fast car let's do it (my buddy has done it before many times on motorcycles). We had a blast!! I have some video that I took with my GoPro and I'll be posting it up soon. I have already tinted the windows with 3m Crystalline and put on a catch can. I'm looking forward to putting on some drag radials soon.
    I'm not new to high hp cars. I owned a supercharged 1988 Ford Mustang and a 1969 Camaro with a 540 cig big block, both heavily modified that ran 10's. I have been blown away with how amazing this car is. Normal driving is extremely comfortable and relaxed but when you get on it literally all hell breaks loose. It is the most fun car I have ever owned. The best part was when I picked up my 2 y/o from Montessori school for the first time in it the other day and he kept saying vroom vroom on the way home, I had the biggest smile on my face.

    Congrats! Though 6 weeks is a long time to wait, mine took 4 months. Other guys on here have waited 9 months or more. Consider yourself lucky. :)

    And congrats again!! Nice color.

    Congrats on your new buy.

    But I'm torn here cause when you capitalize "LONG 1 1/2 months" kinda looks like your dishin the rest of us that waited over a year for ours. Maybe it's just me.

    Enjoy your four door.

    It has actually been about a year (since they first announced the Charger Hellcat) that I have been working on finding a dealer at MSRP, literally over a hundred calls and emails to dealers all over the US (after 2 failed orders with dishonest dealers) until I found the dealer I used to buy my car. When I said "LONG 1 1/2 months" (as in 1 1/2 months from order to delivery after a year of hard work) it means after a long year of research, emails and phone calls I finally got my car.

    Seems like Florida coming on strong with Hellcats very nice . Hellcats must love running and playing in the sun.
