    I don't know how you guys with VONS since September have survived. I have been in VON hell for a mere 2 months and I am a basket case. I toss and turn all night long wondering if I am ever going to get my car. If I do fall asleep, I dream about driving the HC. During the day, I check these boards religiously, search the internet for available cars, pester my dealership a couple of times per week.....you all know the routine.

    I know that it is just a car but I haven't been this excited about a new car for many years. I have always been in the school of buying classics over new. I have owned a '70 Plum Crazy AAR Cuda, a Burnt Orange Metallic '70 Hemi Cuda and now in my garage is a black '69 440 R/T Charger.

    Since the weather finally turned, I decided to take the Charger out for a ride to clear my mind. I have always enjoyed driving the Charger or so I thought. Oh, that 1969 technology......getting bounced around, crank windows, the front end of the car wanting to float/walk at full throttle and don't forget those drum brakes all the way around. Throughout the entire drive I was thinking....How would the HC feel compared to this? Don't get me wrong, I still love owning the '69 but I feel like I am missing something. Based on comments from the lucky ones with HC's, I am really missing something special.

    I have to find a way to deal with the situation or my wife will have to have me institutionalized :p
