    Hello all,

    It's been nearly a year searching and deciding - and waiting - to get back into a fun car. It was always between the Hellcat, GT350 R, and C7Z06. I know they aren't all necessarily comparable, but I was after "fun" and they all provide that in slightly different ways.

    STILL can't get a 350R for less than about $90,000 and to me, that car doesn't have value at that price. Sticker, absolutely, but not with that mark-up. I've had Z06's in the past and the new one is the best yet. But, after thinking long and hard and waffling nearly every day, I opted out of that too. It would be a poorer daily than the HC and it lacks back seats and a sizable trunk (friends, family, and business partners need to fit in my car).

    So, we come to the Cat. Last Sept. I ordered a Jazz blue M6 with red interior and brass monkeys. The car was on a truck to the dealer and..... I got divorced. Things changed, to say the least. Sold the house, got another apartment (one in SoCal and one in Houston for work) and let go of that order. Regretted it, big time. Consolidated to just my daily - BMW 550 - but was becoming increasingly board not being able to shift gears myself. Last week (April 16) I just said "f**k it" and bought the car I now have:

    Redline Challenger HellCat. M6. Satin Hood. Sunroof. Sepia leather. Brass Monkey wheels. Endless smiles and laughs.

    No power mods for the time being. It probably doesn't need them. I will, however, lower the car, corner balance, and get new wheels/tires. Either CCWs, Forgelines, or Finspeeds in 19x10 front and 19x11 rear with meatier rubber (street tires, however, not DRs or slicks). Probably the Barton(?) shifter as well, for a little more feedback.

    My friends are Mopar nuts and have many R/Ts and SRTs between them. Finally I joined the team and I'm having a lot of fun. This site has been a great source of information as well, so thank you to all the members who contribute.

    Pictures are coming...
