    Isn't it a blast to have a stranger walk up and say "Is that a Hellcat?"

    I was born and raised in Detroit. Chrysler put a roof over my family's head and food on the table for 3 generations (1937 - 1999). It fills me with pride that this car gets so much respect.

    I call it a rolling car show. The first day I had it (few weeks ago) a police officer was driving by and yelled, "is that a Hellcat". I barely had the word "yes" out of my mouth and he whipped over, parked and jumped out of the car. He hung out for about 20 minutes talking about it with my two favorite lines being, 1) "I've only seen it at the car show and couldn't get this close because it was roped off" and 2) "mind if I take a few pictures".....was awesome.

    I get the same response all the time! A true American super car IMO. I usually look over smile and say "yes" and peel out so they can see the muscle....

    There are a lot of haters out there... but this car is polarizing... as it attracts those that love it as well as those who hate it to those who just wanna say they beat one... it's had incredible staying power who would have thought the hype would last this long! Dodge blew it out of the water with this car! There is no arguing that! ;)

    Couldn't agree more, it's borderline mythical.

    Sometimes, I dislike all the attention! Like one day, I had just put my nephew in the car and this guy would not stop trying to talk to me. I love the car man, but jeez, can I get my nephew home? lol

    Do you get the same questions if you're even wearing a Hellcat cap or shirt? I get asked about this all the time. Hellcat really is a legend in its own time right now. I'm curious what time brings to this legend.

    I like it when someone asks how much horsepower does it have?

    It's funny to walk out and find strangers taking pictures or checking out your car. I don't know how many different accounts must have pics of it by now.

    My favorite is "how fast have you gotten it" my reply is always "fast enough".

    I've recently been saying its like a Bigfoot sighting. Same response I'd imagine. Took mine to get windows tinted yesterday and you would have thought I pulled up with Sasquatch himself in the passenger seat. Same type of response on the drive home. Was crazy.
