    So I called about 40 dealers in and out of state and none of those dealers had a hellcat except one dealer here in California. Black with A8 and 20k mark up. I was talking to the manager and as soon as he heard me say I wont pay 20K over sticker I swear he said "okay I don't really care" started laughing and hung up on me. Another manager at another dealer told me that dealers aren't even allowed to order cats? Which I don't understand at all. These dealers really like to lie

    The dealership that said they are not allowed to order a Hellcat might be telling the truth. The honest dealerships will not order a Hellcat if they do not have an allocation. As I posted before, my small dealership only had 1 allocation, and I was the first person to place an order with them. So, their one allocation was the car I have now. They do not know when/if they are getting another allocation, so they refuse to place an order for a Hellcat until they get another allocation. That may have been what the dealership you mentioned meant when he said they were not allowed to order one.

    Right now you got basically 2 choices...buy one on a lot and pay the ADM (also known as an impatient tax) and not get exactly what you want...or...find a local dealer who will order one for you at or near MSRP with a short VON list. Then be prepared for a long wait..4-6 month minimum. Hate to be such a buzz kill, but those are our realities.
