    Went to a cruise today at Hooters in Sanford, FL. Since I had not seen or heard of another, I thought I might be the first HC Charger in Central Florida. When I drove in there was another white one like mine. And talking with the others there I heard there is a black one in the shop for graphics. I also know of two HC Challengers in the area, both sublime. So now I wonder just how many HC's are around. Bring 'em out guys.

    they are not all that rare already....just wait 2 more years....on a nice weekend i see Shelby's almost every day...im seeing HC's now 1x a week or more.....and those are the ones i see when im paying attention....

    im still shocked there are that many people out there with $70k to blow........3 years there will be 30,000 of them (challenger/chargers)....you will see them a few times a week ill bet....and those who paid $15-20k adm's will be kicking themselves when they go on sale for -$5k msrp

    Ford is supposed to announce the GT500 this Summer......at some point Chevy may announce a new Zl1........both will relevel out the playing field and bring down # of buyers.....some will sell their HC's for the new 17 gt500 and it will become the big ADM car

    I'm guessing 7500-8000 Challengers this year. Chargers?... Will the C.A.W. contracts come up for negot's in the next three years? 30,000 seems to be on the high side for me; but not out of the realm of possibility... The other two will definitely pull sales from the H/C & one, if not both will come up with more H.P.

    Mark up next year will be for the misinformed & perpetually stupid people out there... By 2017 you maybe able to get one for under msrp.... Right off the lot, as it has sat there for 6 months...

    Something new & better is right around the corner... This will probably be my last muscle car purchase... Unless some other "new shiny, must have" comes out...

    I have seen 3 Challengers and 1 Charger...all pre arranged. Have not seen one in the wild...by chance. Have heard there may be a couple cruising around town. Have seen 4 or 5 392's though. Also keep in mind the "rumor" that SRT has a tune upgrade for the HC expected to bring out 808HP AND covered under warranty. Wonder how much that will cost? Should be fun to see the HP market develop.

    We're going to have to remember to ask RS for the total production numbers for MY15 when it's over.

    I am thinking of getting one of those stickers that WNYCAT...I think thats who's doing them...is making for $20. Total # produced would be good to know so one could say #4195/7500 or whatever the total # is.

    going to be 8-9k this year alone and RUMOR of increasing production for next year (lets guess 12-15k next year) so that'll likely cross the 20k mark in 2016...so year 3 and another 10k is very much in range for the 30k cars in 3 years that huggy mentioned (and I've actually been telling friends/coworkers my guess is 35k in the first 3 years).

    Since December I've seen at least three different Challenger HC's (Redline, Sublime, and Black). Each of those I've seen a few times. It could be just three, or more. I've never see two together. I typically see an average of one Hellcat a week.

    At cruise-ins I've seen a Sublime and a Redline. I had yet to see a Charger HC until I received mine. And as yet, mine is the only Charger HC I've seen. I may just need to get out more. Prior to now I've seen a Graphite Charger SRT on two occations. Could be the same one.

    I think he is already planning to do this. Also some color breakdowns. Info won't become available until end of Sept/1st of Oct. B5, are you going to repeat as the top poster of the month for June? Tammie has taken a bit of a break, HCDC is still here from time to time. I'm too lazy...lol

    I have CRS(Can't Remember Sh I mean Squat) and I know he will. As for posting that's not my goal rather have Tammie and HellcatdotClub I mean dotSubway doing so. That being said my HC goes to the detailer this month so it's perfect so I guess I'll be posting then 4 sure
