    Especially with a TorRed Hellcat in the garage!!!!
    Hello everybody. Gatorguy here from sunny South Georgia. After reading some of the posts here I can tell you that I'm one lucky man! I talked with a friend who is the GM of a Ford dealership that just bought a Chrysler dealership about the possibility of purchasing one of these fine machines. After about 6 weeks of no news he finally admitted that it'd be fall before he was awarded an allotment so I went to another dealership. The very nice, helpful man told me that they had one ordered and it was sold. He said that they were trying to get another one but there was no way of tellng whether or not it would happen. He then turned to his computer and said he would look to see where there was one. He told me there was one on the ground in Dothan, Ala. I walked out of there, Googled the number, called and was told yes, they had one for sale. I tried to put a deposit over the phone. They wouldn't take it. I live 2 hours away and still had one more service call to catch before calling it a day (I own a small electrical contracting business). I finished work, went home, took a shower, jumped in my truck and headed to Dothan. The sales manager told me that there were people all over the car and he could make no guarantees but said he'd call if someone bought it before I got there. He already had me approved but still said I had to sign the papers and swipe my down payment before it was mine. He called me three times while I was enroute, made my heart stop each time, just to check on my progress. I thought it pretty mean of him actually! :) Anyway I made it and 30 minutes later I was headed back home. The difference was my F-150 was on the lot and I was in my new baby! So much to learn! This car is INCREDIBLE!!! I made the trip back the next day with a friend to get my truck so I now have a little over 600 miles on it which means launch control is active! I can't wait to try it in Cecil this afternoon!!
    As far as I can tell, mine has everything except the sunroof, block heater and adaptive cruise control. I would've liked the sunroof, the block heater is of very little use around here (you know, what with global warming and all ;)) and I don't know when one uses the adaptive cruise. I bought it with investment in mind but it's so much fun I fear it's going to be tough to keep the miles down.
    Please excuse the length of this missive, if anyone is still reading. I promise not to be so long winded in my subsequent posts. I look forward to reading about all of y'alls adventures and learning the ins and outs of our new AMERCAN supercar!!!
    Have a great day everybody.

    Yo Gatorguy! Congratulations! Way to make it happen! Not just sitting around moping! Have fun Gator Man! No sunroof, black hood, or adaptive cruse control available on Hellcat, so you got it ALL! A8, or M6? Welcome!! Drive fast and launch hard!! Jim in Minneapolis!

    Congrats.

    The sunroof isn't available on the Hellcat (too damn powerful)... The adaptive cruise isn't an option either as it blocked needed airflow for cooling (too damn powerful LOL). Enjoy your new cat!

    Howdy neighbor! Welcome to the forum, and GRTZ on your Hellcat! I enjoyed reading your introduction, as I could "feel" the excitement oozing from between the words, and it mirrors my feelings as well! I hope you enjoy both the car and the forum as much as I do!

    April

    PS - Yes. It is, indeed, a beautiful day! :)
