    Hey all you hellcat dudes and dudettes. I'm 65 years old and have been retired from the job for a couple of years. I can't adequately express how much I enjoy being retired, but that's another story. About a month ago, I traded my 15 Challenger SRT 392 for my 16 Challenger, manual, redline red, black wheeled honey. What an amazing ride. But you guys already know that.

    Congrats! I just traded my 15 SRT 392 to order a HC. I can't wait for it to show. How do you like the difference?

    It's almost like comparing apples to oranges. The extra horsepower is awesome, but the suspension is equally impressive. The hellcat is actually not what I expected it to be. It's incredibly strong, but it's very refined. It's not at all brutish, unless you tell it to be.
    I waited for mine for a couple of months. I know what the wait is like. The anticipation consumed at least 50% of my thought processes during those couple of months. My wife thought it was pretty sad. I kept telling myself "it'll be here one of these days" and sure enough, it showed up. Yours will too, one of these days.

    Congrats! I am just a little over 3 years away from retirement (I hope!) and I cannot wait to be a (not so fat) beachbum and enjoy my HC down in FLA!

    Hello, and welcome! Grtz on both the Hellcat, and the retirement! My husband and I are pushing for an early retirement ... we are on a 3 year plan right now. :) A lil over a week ago I traded my 2015 Redline Challenger HC in on a 2016 PCP Challenger HC that is in transit. I have approx 2 more weeks wait, and I am forcing myself to be patient. I waited 4 months for the 2015 to be built, I can handle a 3 week wait for this one ... at least I keep telling myself that! LOL!

    Big congrats on your new ride, and the retirement!

    I'm in the same boat, just turned fifty and retiring this year, plus I have a brand new redline red hellcat on order! The only sad part is I'll be selling my current ride and trading down to less horsepower, but on the other hand the challenger has exactly what I'm looking for at this point.

    Enjoy your redline red!!!
