    Well guys, I originally had a bright white A/T Hellcat on order @ MSRP with a 500$ deposit. When I ordered the black Laguna seats weren't an option and I removed the black hood option when I found out about the delay. So basically I would be getting half of what I wanted ontop of waiting forever. I have read countless posts on here about people waiting for months without a VIN, and I barely ordered a day before Thanksgiving, so I felt hopeless.

    I hit the web machine looking for white A/T cats and I found one at another dealer, to my surprise. It had every option available, except the black hood of course. The dealer wanted 15K over sticker and it was on their lot with people looking at it everyday. The email bargaining began. I started off by telling them I would fly up to their dealership at that moment for MSRP. No bites. I offered 5k over. No bites. 2-3 days later they call me and ask for 7.5k. I say 6k, they say 7k. I bit.

    So I am the owner of an over priced Hellcat, but I am pretty happy. I sold some of my AAPL stock to make up for the 7K difference. Thank God AAPL has been kicking butt since the 7-1 split.

    So, I drove my cat halfway across the country on a 4 day mission and I had a blast while doing so. I ran into a few cars trying to race me and a few people who couldn't take their eyes off of it. The cat drove like a dream and I didn't have one complaint about it, besides the no auto up drivers side window and the no adaptive cruise control. But thats minimal.

    I am pretty sure I have the highest milage Hellcat on the forums now (2300+ miles), but thats why I bought it and it was a spectacular drive, I must say. As soon as I got back home I washed her, changed the oil, and had it dyno'd. My fiance and I dubbed her "Hellga" on our 4 day trip.

    I still have one on order at my dealer with a deposit holding it. My dealer was awesome the entire time and I want to make it right. I am going to call and take my name off the car but I wanted to see if anyone on here was interested in taking over my spot. I have a VON but its still in BX status. The dealer was allocated 2 cars. The first car that the dealer ordered is in D1 status and I am next. I will have to see if the dealer will be willing to take someone in my place, as they might have a waiting list like the rest of the dealerships. I will keep you guys updated. Thanks everyone for sharing your stories and Happy Hollidays!

    enjoy your ride and forget about what you paid for it. That's all in the past.

    Very nice car. Are you having the hood sprayed, wrapped or
    keep it white.? It looks solid white, not the Pearl, which is a beautiful car.......

    Congrats and enjoy the heck out of it.......

    Might see you around cruising.......

    Congrats! I paid $2K over myself. Forget about that and enjoy the car. I'm at 550 miles myself and couldn't be happier.
