    Hello Hellcat fans.
    I currently have a 2005 Magnum R/T which I purchased new in 2004. For the past 3 or 4 years I have had my eyes open for what I wanted next, and was disappointed with what was available. I was living in Minnesota, so performance had to weighed with the need to have an additional ride in the winter, which is hard on the bank accounts. I am hoping that planets are aligning to make the Hellcat my next ride. Planet 1: moving to sunny southern california, no snow and a 3 mile commute changes your perspective on what is considered a daily driver. Planet 2: dodge announced the Hellcat, drooling begins. Planet 3: my wife may be coming around to getting a car so impractical. Now im just waiting for planet 4, the options I want to become available (brass monkey and sunroof) and plant 5 is the hardest, a dealer in the area not tacking on 5K to 20K over sticker.

    maybe ill cave and get a scat pack car if the money makes sense for the family, but until i make the decision I am a Hellcat hopeful.

    Hey Monkey. Congrats on your well thought plan! I TOTALLY understand the bank account issue, this Hellcat will be my one and only and, thank goodness, I only drive 3 miles to work each way!! I noticed. Lot of smart guys in this site got buy in from their wife or fiancé by allowing them the color choice! Really, you are getting a Hellcat so why not let them choose the color?? Win win for all! It is a rare opportunity to have a collector that is in middle class price range. For me, this is an opportunity I never thought I would get! Tell her she can have her own key. If you trust her, give her one of the red ones, if not, give her the black one. LOL;)

    Welcome to the site. Lots of astrology going on with your life, try to take it a planet at a time. I have to also arrange a few things before I get my Hellcat, but I have some time as I am waiting a Charger.

    Welcome to the site. The Hellcat is an awesome car. The Scat Pack is pretty awesome as well. Either one would be a blast to own. Hope all the alignments happen so you can get the car you desire.

    Welcome Monkey! You're plan is solid and well thought out. Hopefully it ends with a SRT Hellcat in your garage :) In the meantime, enjoy the forums and thanks for stopping in!!
