    I have been watching this site for a while now as well as the cars so now I purchased a car I figured it was time to join. I know people have a tough time finding these cars for a fair price so maybe I just got lucky. Car is 2016 Tor Red Challenger Hellcat Auto. It was just the way I wanted it with all black interior, summer tires and no sun roof or spank the monkey options(just a joke). I have been into GM Muscle cars for years and have had several high end cars I restored mostly myself. I saw these incredible cars and decided it was time for a change. I just sold my concourse level muscle car at auction for a nice profit so this was a nice easy cash purchase. I lucked out and found this car at a dealer 60 miles from home less than a week later. I was ready for a nation wide search. It was the first dealer I called as I heard there was a good dealer in the town I got it in. There were two dealers in town. I hit it first try. It just got off the truck. Only had 2 miles on it. They told me right off they sell for sticker so I was there the next day. I tried to knock down the price but they were not having it. I figured that. Another dealer I had checked with before I sold my car called my brother asking for me to say they got a blue auto in. $5k over sticker. No thanks. Beside I wanted the Tor Red. The color just Pops. I live in Massachusetts so the car is waiting for Spring. I did drive it home the day after a rain storm so the salt was gone. I rushed the dealer so I could beat a snow storm the next day. Funny thing is the power window/lock switch is dead on the drivers door. If I had not rushed them they probably would have caught it. It will have to go back for that. Hopefully factory worker just forgot to plug it in. I swapped fuses with passenger side and still dead so not the fuse. I hope I can add something to this site and learn some things as well. Looks like a really good site.

    Thanks Guys. I will try and post pics. First picture is me with it on the showroom floor the day I bought it. Second is my salesman. He was enthusiastic young guy. I am glad he could get the commission.

    This tiny little dealer had three Cats in the showroom and nothing else. Two black and mine. The blacks were both spoken for. No problem with that. I like the red. They get a lot of allocations as they told me they sell a ton of trucks. They had two allocations available for June and July I think but said they could be delayed if anyone is interested.

    Congrats Jungle Cat. You'll love the Hellcat because there is nothing like it. What was your concours level GM muscle car you just sold? If I may ask. This coming weekend in Atlantic City is a big AC Classic Car Auto Auction which I'll attend. A lot of those type cars end up there.
