    with all these people getting VINs now and not during the normal ~2nd week of the month, are they throwing the monthly allocation system out the window?

    Case in point, one of our Houston members, wildman just got a VIN (congrats big guy!!!!!) from my dealer. Apparently that 1 dealer had 3 orders picked up TODAY!!!!! Another of our members, Yearight1999 heard from that same dealer and was told that his order has not gotten picked up and won't be picked up this year. How does the dealer know? Was there a new memo put out that they are filling as many VINs as they think they can build and then if you didn't get one its over now...in April?

    Anyone with inside knowledge shed any light on this for Yearight1999 (which I'm sure will also help educated many others in VON hell). So it seems the 1 order/month thing is dead and gone since my dealer got 3 picked up today.

    My dealer has 5 orders, one is being delivered next week and is his first. The other 4 orders (including mine) got VIN's over this past weekend. Have no idea what's going on but i think Dodge just preallocated all the future allocations.

    I was told by two different dealers that no more are being picked up after all this...( Of course they were trying to sell me a Cat! ) I called BS but now...not sure. Guess I will call my dealer tomorrow and check with him to see if he has heard anything..(doubt it though).

    I hope there is some more VINs going to be assigned this year... I don't think I can wait to jump aboard this crazy train another year.

    Thanks rayzazoo.... Hope you are correct for yearight1999’s sake. Just strange dealer told him he won't get a 2015 order but he'll be first in their line for 2016 model.... Though dealers seem to be seldomly informed

    "If you order them, will build them."
    "We're prioritizing 9/9 orders and building in them chronological order"
    "Dealers can order as many Hellcats as they wish"
    "XXX from SRT told me ________"
