    I keep hearing how all of you get all this attention.....while i get none......tonight took the HC to its first car show....they stuck me on the side with all the newer models and kept the old ones on their side.....fine....segregation, not overly happy with it.....local ice cream/drive in show...probably 75 cars...only 4 people came up to me.....2 of them Challenger owners at the show.....i talked with them, went got ice cream and was alone......15 minutes and no one came by.....walked around the show with my girls, kept an eye on my car...saw maybe 2 people look while i checked the others.....so i left....i really dont think anyone in WI has a clue that the HC exists.......i got more attention when i bought my IE 392 and took it to the same show....probably 2-3x more.........i still enjoyed myself, i knew the other 2 challenger guys and hadnt seen them in 2 years.....favorite car of the night was a yellow 2015 Z06 convertible...just beautiful..

    i am now considering the 3' glow in the dark HC logo on the sides of the car....you buy a new car and you want to feel special and show it off a bit......ive been humbled every time i drive this car.....im invisible in a sublime Hellcat

    I got that at the last cruise in for coffee.. one of the first things people seem to look for is the fender badge.. and mine just confuses them.. I think many just write it off as non HC :D

    You won't be invisible when they hear the rumble of the exhaust, the whine of the supercharger and the dust you leave them in when you pass them....F what anyone else thinks....All that matters is what you think....alot of people don't know shit about cars.....You drive the king of the road enjoy it!

    Took my HC to a show today as well. Had a lot of lookers/questions/admirers. I was there 4 hrs. and talked with folks most of that time. Many said it was the first they had seen. Do you have many HC's where you live? Also had my sign that owenspackman had provided the jpeg for. That may have helped.

    All true......my post is less about me and about how everyone else posts on and on and on and on and on how people come up to them or drive in circles around their cars.......no one does that here....things are different in the WI world than the world you guys live in

    Maybe so.....I live in the land of treehuggers and priuses.....so it wouldn't surprise me if people drove up next to me and gave me the bird....maybe there is something in the cheese;) seriously, I don't think the average Joe would know the difference between a SXT and an SRT....

    You didn't buy the car for awards did you? The car is all about enjoyment and having fun, not about what others think (just me 2 cents), maybe its me but I never had the heard mentality, always taken the road less traveled, just drive and have fun, who cares?

    My fault, I was directing that at Huggy, as you were too, just do not get it, buy a car and become a rock star. Just not part of why I am waiting for mine. Not at all

    Maybe try that sign Owenspack made! We did already establish that they love Harleys, beer, cheese and fat asses most in your area

    Mines for the dragstrip not car shows. If it can't do 127 or more then I'll be upset
