    Hey all, I'm new to the forum and just wanted to say hello and give a little background on what's led me here. First off I would consider myself an overall car buff as I'm sure most on this site are. I've been looking for the
    Effect vehicle for the better part of 6 years now. Something I hope to hand down to my son when he's old enough to drive and or responsible enough. I've come close to buying a mustang, a challenger SRT and a BMW M3. All the while knowing I wanted something with a hemi in it. I owned a jeep grand cherokee with a 5.2 liter v8 hemi. Anyway when I started reading about this hellcat challenger I knew this was the car for me. Unfortunately I can't figure out how to actually buy one! I've called numerous dealers and all saying the same thing. Not sure if they getting one, list is full, and there is going to be at least a $25k markup on dealer price.... If ANYONE has any idea where I can actually get one I'm all ears!!!!

    I've literally put in 25 inquiries at dealers and none of them have been able to guarantee me a car as of yet. Even with a deposit being put down. So if you know of a dealer that is taking orders and guaranteeing delivery I would love to get there info so I can call them.

    My dealer had another order in for a black Hellcat with all options available at early order. I don't know if he sold it yet. I am not sure where you are or if Washington State is an option for you. He will also be able to take orders for more soon. It is Rainier Dodge, Casey Johnson, 360-704-5550. Tell him Tammie Hetrick sent you. He ordered mine for me on day one and I got my VIN back 5 days later and he has kept me in the loop on the status.

    Hey Dobjr, hope you got it worked out. If not I have a rep who can take an order with a deposit and he will tell you a time frame but no guarantees on ETA.

    Thanks for the response. I'm actually getting mine through a dealer in San Francisco. He has been totally upfront with me in that he didn't think he was going to get allocated one. BUT, I got a call on Wednesday from him and it looks like I'm going to be getting one after all. I'm so absolutely psyched. I feel like a 10yr old at Xmas... Hahaha. I ordered 6 speed manual black on black with the upgraded tire package and upgraded black satin hood. Does anyone have any idea what that is by the way? I can't seem to find any details on it?

    The hood is painted a flat black.. it not only looks cool but cuts down on sun glare reflecting off of the paint. like football players putting black under their eyes to cut the glare

    Very cool Freight Train, I almost ordered it on my black Cat. I'm going for that sinister look, although this car looks that way in any color.
