    This morning I was stopping in at my local Starbucks for a coffee and this guy stops and asks if my car is a Hellcat. Yep, it sure is, the first and only one in town I tell him and it is bad a$$ and hella fast!!! LOL He was in a nice older Rustang and after he complimented my car he left the lot and tore rubber down the street. I had to laugh because I notice it happens a lot. I kinda thought he was going to lose control because it got a little squirrely. LMAO! Anyone have similar incident?

    I notice it more just cruising down the highway. 65 speed limit, cruising along in light congestion at about 75, all the beaters start trying to pass you and rev their little lawn mower engines.

    I recently had some douche in a mustang blast around me in heavy traffic and cut right into the half a car space in front of me. Had to slam on the brakes to avoid an accident. Made me so damn mad..... still mad about it!

    That's one scenario where exhaust cut-outs (dumps) are going to be a whole lot of fun! It will be a chance to demonstrate what a real motor should sound like.

    Here it's not other performance cars those owners seemed to respect.

    Kids usually in small cars they modded,
    some of that not too mutch.

    More often it's been I don't know what to call them, last one VW Jetta, then there was Range Rover, then 328i or similar. Thing is they all do it unsafe, in traffic. Wierd.

    All the time....on the highway, I get the cars coming up super fast next to me wanting to make a run...I don't bite. I think my favorite part of every conversation is when "they" (Insert any non Challenger owner) starts to talk about how poorly the car handles...yet they've never been behind the wheel of one and/or seen the latest articles.

    "Yeah, it's fast BUT I hear it handles like a pig and can't corner at all...you can't really think it's a "real" sports car???"


    Yep, get that all the time...

    Even though I do not have my HC yet, it happens to me with my SRT8. Also, douche bags driving minivans get really mad when I am riding on my motorcycle. It never fails. I cannot imagine the face of the guy that lives 2 blocks from my house when he sees me driving my sublime HC. Priceless !!! lol

    One of the first and few times I was able to drive my car I was coming up behind a Chrysler 300 with 4 guys in it on a 4 lane highway. As soon as I got close to them the 2 guys in the back turned around and stared at me. I went to slowly pass them (understand it was late December in Wisconsin on a cold day) and as soon as I was next to them they started to try and race me. I kept my speed and then went around them as they looked at me smiling I just smiled at them.

    Mine was when I went to the auto parts store trying to get a green air filter. Kid behind the counter asked me how's it feel to know Ford is going out with something faster then your hellcat. I asked what car that was, he said the gt350, I laughed, then told him that has no chance of betting beating my hellcat, then he said it car rev up to 9000 rpms,, I laughed again,, then asked what he was driving, he said a 4 banger mustang, that he plans to drop aV8 in..again,I just smiled and left..

    I have noticed this. I attribute it to jealousy, mainly. Although one day at home depot when I was parked, some dude came by and said to his wife "Look at that beautiful car! And I have to drive a POS, why can't I have a car like that?" Poor guy, I felt for him.....Life is too short to drive a POS.:D:D
