    Hello fellow enthusiast!! So I've been lurking around the forums for a month now just taking it all in and got super excited to hear a lot of you all have moved up to shipping status, congrats!! So I put in an order for my HC on 18OCT and was told from the get go it would be 3-6 months before I'd see it so I haven't had the itch like you all :) As for what I ordered I put in for the TorRed Chally, 6spd, nav upgrade and black laguna leather. Oh and best of all got it at MSRP!!. Currently own a 2011 SRT 8 with a 6spd and love it to death but will be trading it in for the HC. My other love is my 99 Dakota R/T which I have stroked to 408 and supercharged, nothing like a truck laying down some street smack :D
    So here's a shot of my current toys. Look forward to following everyone's status!!

    I am going from pitch black Charger to red Hellcat. Every now and then I start to regret not getting black again and then I see my car that I just washes is already dirty again and am hoping the red with stay a little cleaner looking, especially here in the rainy city... I almost got the silver stripes, but decided to wait as I was doing supercharger next then Hellcat came out and BAM! Forgetaboutit! Hellcat it is! Good choice on red!!

    We made the right choice. Everyone should have at least one black car ( once ) Of course I have a 3500 HD in Black right now. ( since its a truck I don't mind the car wash) Challengers should never be run thru a car wash

    Tammie I agree black cars are defiantly sexy and shine like a diamond when clean, keeping them that way when they are daily drivers is a nightmare as Im sure you are well aware of. I have an old red Ranger that I squeezed a 302 into and I'm doing good if I wash it 3-4 times a year and it just never looks dirty so that is what persuaded me to try a red HC.

    Cuda if you drive the car daily in these crappy snow states that dump salt all over the road you have to go through the touch-less car wash that sprays the undercarriage. Since moving to CT I bet I hit the car wash on a weekly basis during the winter to blow the salt off. Always a bit annoying when I'm running around with gigantic icicles afterwards though :/ So far been here for 2 years and no rust underneath, can wait to leave this area next year and try to get back to the warmer states!!

    Welcome to the forum.
    You have a couple of nice rides there!
    Be sure to post pictures of your Hellcat when it comes in.

    Congrats on getting your ride! I wish I could take you up on the cruise, haven't seen any cats other than mine down here on the coast line. Im flying out of state for three months to attend a school then when I get back here I'll be moving back to VA, I have to escape before I get snowed in ;)
