    It got up to 45 degrees for a high last week, so I started up the Hellcat and drove it around the neighbor a couple times.

    Come on spring!

    Oh Yeah, it's -20C(-4F) here and about two feet of snow on the ground. It's going to be a long winter considering it's only early January. I am sure the forum will help with the Cat withdrawal.

    This is the third winter of dealing with these feelings. Slowly getting used to it but not happy about it! :eek:

    Wouldn't know what that's about. It was 85 on Christmas Day here in south Florida, but you have my sympathy.

    I guess I need to be grateful, we've had rain on and off for the last 10 days which is unusual with temps ranging from 47* to 65* I am hoping it clears up this afternoon so I can get out today and tomorrow. My cat is all dressed up (new drag radials) but nowhere to go with the rain.

    Go ahead PlumCrazy rub it in, did you ever hear of Karma? LOL just kidding.

    Had stooopid Hellcat withdrawal as I had to let go of my '15 black beauty in October. Fate lent a hand and I grabbed a new '16 yesterday. Totally unplanned. Having a different kind of withdrawal as it's still at the dealership, it snowed all night and the roads are salt covered.

    This is new Cat after a bath and before wheel detailing. I am in love all over again :p:D:)

    I've done a lot of business at my Dodge/Jeep/Ram dealership and the owner offered to flatbed it to my house. We'll wait until the salt spray potential calms down. Do not intend to store the car for several months with a salt coating on it. Supposed to warm up to near 50 and rain middle of next week. It's 18 degrees here now.

    Ahhh...life in the Northeast...

    I started mine today. It sounded like Blackbeast's recording after a second or two of hemi tick. Sounds like I have a "good" supercharger. It has been over two months for me now. Plugged it back into the trickle charger, took a good look at it. I do need to put my Christmas present together, soon; a Quick Lift. Then I can begin my clay-polish-wax routine and clean the bottom also. Spring will come soon. As soon as I know I can wash it outside and after it rains I am okay with getting it out. Those are two big "if's" in MN.

    O.M.G...I was just thinking the same thing....Major Withdrawals. Its snowing here today supposed to get up to 12" of snow. Here I am trying to figure out what I can do to the HC next. I can tell you this...when I am able to drive the HC I don't have time to think about what I want to do to it because I am too busy enjoying it. When the HC is sleeping in the garage I can't stop thinking about what will be my next mod. I know I know....its sooo bad yet sooo good.

    I feel your pain. I`m in Minnesota :(
    Did buy a new Jegs low profile floor jack and will be taking off all 4 wheels to clean the brake dust off them. Only 4,000 miles but the fronts especially are really bad! Also installed some LED interior lights and had my 3.09 rear end installed just before the weather really went down hill here. Now I`m just drinking beer and bench racing :)

    Nice. I hope to lighten mine up before spring. I want to get a set of those Demon lightweight brakes. Someone may come up with a new very light and very strong drive shaft before we get them on the road too!

    We are saving so much gas money.

    I am at work and my wife just texted me this. Guess I am going to have to pile MORE snow behind the cat... Attach16265_20170107_132541.jpg

    Oh, and I should mention, we live in the high Desert. It ain't supposed to snow feet of snow here, and this single digit temp crap I thought I left in NY and PA.
