    So, VON;s seem to be an order or place holder until the dealer actually is "given" the allocation. With any luck after the allocation is verified, parts available, eventually a VIN is generated (simplified process) and at some point the car should be built. Myself, I had multiple VON's from multiple dealers. Once I got a VIN I cancelled my other VON, I'm sure the dealer did not pull the order.

    BUT, I am curious to see how many others have multiple VON's that may be clogging up the system. Not scientific, and may not really have any effect on anything just curious.

    My lucky number is 8, so that's what I'm shooting for. lol j/k, only 2 so far. #3 in line at one, #2 in line at the other...hoping the March allocation drops both of those positions! Do what you gotta do. If I wasn't so choosy, I'd of had a HC 3 weeks ago off a lot....I see them listed here every day, just not the color and combo I want...and for this car...that I've waited so long for...I want EXACTLY what I want...period.

    One at one honest dealer. Got lucky in early January won the Hellcat Lottery and grabbed a VIN. Built Feb 19. Just visited the wonderful dealer in person yesterday, they are as eager as me to see it. They told me they are flooded with calls every day since people can see the incoming Cats on the Dodge Site and willing to pay OVER MSRP. They shared their status screens with me. It has been a little slow in the rail yards, but the update yesterday showed no holds and problems. We expect it to arrive the week of March 16.

    You guys are part of the reason shit is the way it is. So if you had let's say 5 till you got 1 vin so that's 4 cars they think that have orders for. I hope people with more than one vin NEVER get a car.

    I bet there is over 2000 fake order now if thoes cars get built and cars sit on the lots makes all of our cars worthless thanks

    One small dealer in small town. Good friend, one VON just hoping he could get the allocation, he did, now in D waiting for the magic to happen. I am hoping for D1 in the next 30 days.

    It's pretty safe to say the one's with 2 or more VON's are probably customers of BF and Roanoke, and the like.
    The dealers who put in 50-100 or more orders. I'm sure guys who stuck to their local dealers probably don't have multiples.
    Hard to blame them though, when you have no idea what's going on and then FCA makes that blog post last week.
    We want our cars, at a fair price, and we won't stop looking.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. I've mentioned this numerous times on other threads and it's been ignored. Many of the people complaining and hating on Tim K and FCA are the ones with 2, 3, 4 or more VONs. YOU are the problem. You've just added a ton of false orders into the system, do you really think the dealer will cancel these when you ask them too? Of course not!!!! They'll keep the car for stock and slap $10k onto it. How do you expect FCA to know which sold orders to build first.

    Lot easier to make this statement with one in the garage. Didn't you brag here you got help from someone high up in Dodge to get yours? After receiving bad advice here to get in in the BF line,
    I sought out a second VON with help from a forum member. Now have a VIN and in D status.

    He did get help, but I am an ordinary guy who got only one that worked out. But I did some homework before I choose my dealership. I believe the larger problem is the dealerships who promise something they can't delivery. We are the consumers, after all we go into the dealership and they say no problem sign here what are we suppose to do? Dirtbag car salesman and dealers are the problem not the customers.

    Yes I did. And I would still have one at home if I did not. I placed one order and one only. Right around New Years I was calling dealers to fine one at msrp. I had a back up plan. And a back up of a back up a Z06. It's the peope that placed order after order that are going to make this car worthless. When there are hellcats sitting on lots as leftovers. Thanks again.

    Btw I had 2 let me repeat 2 SRT8's bought back under lemon law that I paid for and could not drive because the clutches had no pressure just slipped. Both in shop all summer. So I had no summer car for 2 years I was due.
