    To fix the poor workmanship of the first body dealership shop.

    Still waiting for insurance to approve a re corrective estimate.

    The guys at the new body shop all started talking about my hellcat and none knew the exact horse power so I had to blurt it out, 707!

    They said that's the most powerful muscle factory car in history!

    They were telling some customers the hellcat blew away the BMW M5, got to race a jet fighter plane and etc.

    The head guy came out and introduced himself, is that the hellcat?

    Told me his name and shook my hand.

    I was like woah... Cool

    Hope they do great work, for you and your cat. Also, I always like to state the power as "a conservative rating of 707hp!" since most dyno tests suggest the actual output is even higher. Ditto for torque, some estimates place the max TQ as close to 700, not the "mere 650 like the ZO6 has"!!!

    Haha yeah I was thinkin that but didn't really want to say much since so many folks were there
    haha well their shop is called Metropolitan auto collision they were referred by a good friend of mine who rolls high end baller cars only. They work on high end cars a lot and have perfect reviews on yelp and google. Either way I'm Leary of my dodge dealership screwing with me once, never again.

    Also I think this is their first hellcat
