    I was at a cruise in this last saturday and got there a little late and there was no parking.Someone came up and said park next to the other hellcat and moved a cone for me. I live in a very large city and had not seen another besides mine. It turned out the other one was a media car that Dodge had loaned to the news paper. I don't know how long this car had been out but it had been rode hard. Tires were slick and the antifreeze almost brown instead of purple. A little while later the driver started it up and proceeded to rev the motor in neutral

    until it hit the rev limiter many times. I'm sure it wasn't the first time that car had been abused. If someone gave me a nice car to drive and abuse I don't think I could go that far. I cringed like I was watching someone beat a dog.

    Don't worry, it's more than likely headed to the crusher soon.

    Depending if it's a S1 or S2 pilot car. S2 cars can be sold to public after Chrysler is done with them. They send them out to auction

    I know Dodge wants people to beat them up and give good reviews but I have had mine since 12/23 and it gets cleaned up every time I drive it. Oil was changed at 900 miles. I think if it was free I would still take care of it.

    These cars will show up, all cleaned up and with new tires, on Dealer lots in about May as Factory Exec. cars, for only slight discounts. Be aware!
