    Eric Larson here...live in Saginaw, Michigan. Have spent the last two months building up a custom Camaro show/street car but don't have time to show it and I'm having a falling out with my mechanical builder which puts me in a bind without someone who built/knows it to help support a 1000rwhp car.

    My local dodge dealer got notified he will get one 2016 Hellcat Chally allocation before 2/16 and given I've bought about 20 cars from him the owner agreed to give it to me at MSRP. I'm just waiting to hear when the allocation actually hits so we can order.

    I've built up quite a few cars including the Camaro, a 2009 R/T, a Jeep, etc but believe it or not I've reached the point where I just want to wash one and drive it....so it was a C7 or Hellcat and at 6'7 that made it an easy choice...

    Hello Eric,
    My name's Tim, also in saginaw.
    Local dodge dealer-garber-has advised of 3 allocations. Says I can order as soon as allocations are released. Hope there are 3, we don't need to be competing.
    Let's hope we each get our unit. We can start a saginaw hc club.
    Tim

    Hey Tim! We won't be competing as I've got the only allocation from Shafer in Frankenmuth. Funny I called Garber on the morning of the allocation announcements and spoke with sales. They thought they would get an allocation and said they were "taking bids". Asking what that meant and telling him I'd pay MSRP and nothing more he took my name and advised I was first on the list and he would call me as soon as they confirmed they had allocations. Feeling shady I called Shafer as that's normally my Dealer and spoke with the owner and his team and they gave me their allocation immediately. Call from Garber never came. My sense was is was the whole "bid" thing and my comment on MSRP so I hope they take care of you and are not charging an ADM or intending to tell u about it when the car shows up in a few months.

    hello eric,
    thanks for info.
    calling garber this a.m. your reference to " bid thing " conflicts with what I've heard.
    great that sb is working with you at msrp.
