    Just arrived in Lake Havasu for the winter from our home in southern Utah. Everyday is 20 degrees warmer down here! Ordered a new Hellcat on 11-26. It will be my new toy replacing my '68 Camaro. The Camaro is nearly as fast as the Hellcat will be, but old school all the way. It's got a 572, TKO 600 5 speed, Ford 9", and lots more. It will be interesting to go from a 'fast' 47 year old car to the new high tech 'go fast'. I've been on one of the other forums for a short time, but just found this one too.

    Welcome to the site! Lots of cool folks on here, and loads more info than you'll ever get from a salesman.
    I too have some vintage fast cars, but it'll be a real change, for us both, to get a quick but modern high-tech vehicle. I ordered back in early October, but have gotten no feedback about it, so I am not real optimistic. Where did you order your Hellcat, and did they give you a VON/VIN, and also, did you have to pay above MSRP as many buyers have?

    Thanks for your welcome. My only other Mopar was a brand new 1967 Barracuda Formula S with the 273 hipo motor. Since then I've been a GM guy. I just can't get with the new Camaro's, and then along came the Hellcat. What's not to like? I tried to buy the new car herein LHC but the dealer wanted a $5000. deposit. I just couldn't see it for a car with no guaranteed delivery and probably a 5 month wait. I called a little Chrysler/GM dealer in Utah where I've bought cars before. They gladly ordered it at MSRP with a $500. desposit and I have VON at this point. There is only one order ahead of me, so I feel pretty good about seeing the car, just not real soon. That's okay, 650 HP in the Camaro is a thrill ride anytime anyway.

    Congrats! I had a 69 Camaro for about 15 years and loved it. The Hellcat will blow you away! I have a 2012 Dodge Charger and the power and amenities of new Mopar is awesome! I am picking up my Challenger Hellcat tomorrow, I love the thought of pure beast muscle car with all the luxuries of a new car and amazing handling. My Camaro was pretty squirrely, but not as upgraded as yours! :)

    Welcome to our little slice of Hellcat purgatory. While a few have their cars and other (like Tammie) will be enjoying them soon, a lot of us are waiting just like you. We'll just have to keep each other entertained while hoping Dodge gets the lead out and builds our cars.
