    I placed my order 4 months ago with a very small dealer in rural Pennsylvania. I've been buying from them for 20 years, it's family owned, but they don't sell many cars. I resigned myself to the fact that it was going to take a very long time to get a car, it is what it is. But this week because of the new rules the DM took an allocation away from a big dealer with a car on the lot and gave it to my little rural dealer! I now have a VIN at MSRP and I'm walking about four feet off the ground.

    I'm not saying the system is perfect, there are still quite a few VONs older than mine and I hope they get VINs soon. But to those of you waiting it out at your local dealer, keep the faith baby. Good things are happening.

    Exact same thing for me, only I ordered a Charger on the first day. My friend that owns the very small dealership in a rural area said he had no idea if he could even get a Charger Hellcat for me, well he did. Now we wait for it to be built.

    Dodge should dedicate 50% of one day to Hellcat output only just to catch up. They will catch up fast. Don't they build 1000 cars a day? That would be 500 cats a week (1/2 of one day's output per week).

    It's easy to sit in the armchair and throw out all the answers ;)

    Yes, good news indeed!

    So does this mean that the allocations planned for release next week (3/10~16) are being awarded this week?

    Thanks-

    Looks like they are only producing 400 per month. Question is: How many "good orders" (VONs) do they have in the Inbox?

    If the small Dealers are starting to receive VIN's, that definitely a step in the right direction. Congratulations everyone!!

    Not necessarily so. After the earlier Feb. allocations were awarded, there was a batch around Feb. 24/5/6 that went out. As they have extra capacity on the line, I think they pull VIN's at any time.
