    Just wondering, how many HC owner plan to, or are using their cars as daily drivers? Or are they going to be added to collections, or end up being garage queens? I plan on my Hellcat taking over daily driver duties. I'm I crazy? Like to here your thoughts. Thanks!

    Daily driver for me! My only car. I will walk if icy because stupid shizzy's can't drive around here! I am gonna try to get a POS for really bad days, but I only drive 3 miles to work and 3 miles home. Oh, and that 1/4 mile to the gym that wastes about 3 gallons of gas! Lmao:D

    Daily driving here! My work is about 10 minutes away but after a month I will probably start driving my wife's car a couple times a week. We will see. Gas prices are an average of $4.38 per gallon.

    Oh,hahaha just as bad or worse I guess as far as the price of fuel. Lots of stop and go too I guess. ...hard not to mash that gas at every traffic light.

    I won't just use it on weekends, but won't drive it every day, either, as the 'specialness' wears off, when you are using anything as part of your everyday routine. I will likely try to use it a couple times each week, so it's always a rush and very exciting, but will use my Honda CRV or Toyota Camry during inclement weather, and will still use my old vette and t-bucket on occasion too, --don't want them getting too jealous of the new Hellcat!

    I have a company car to go to work, and have my 2011 GMC Sierra Duramax so mine will be just a fun toy, but I will drive it as often as possible.

    Mine will mostly be a daily driver. I have an 83 Trans Am and an 83 Delorean that I rotate in for going to work 1 or 2 days a week. When I get my 69 Charger out of the restoration shop it will go into the rotation as well. I believe cars were made to be driven. The last thing I want to do is have someone drive my low miles Challenger to my funeral. Drive it while you can!
