    The wait is finally over. Boarding shortly from Philly to Phoenix. I'm a gambler and gambling here. I'm "told" that the car WILL arrive today and that it's safe to fly out.

    I'll be headed back home shortly after I sign. Expecting my trip back to be 3-4 days and about 2,400 miles. I'll be posting pics and updates along the way.

    If anyone wants to see something specific on the Charger, let me know. Glad to take and post pics on the way! Wish me luck.

    Sounds like a great road trip, have a safe and fun time. We will all be looking for pictures and narrative of the trip. Our Charger HC is due to catch the train to MN in 2 days, hard to wait.

    Yes, do send lots of pics from your road trip. Depending on your route, you can drive some of the original alignments of Route 66 as well as see some iconic places/relics from a bygone era, from Phoenix if you go back up through Flaggstaff, all the way to St. Louis. TONS to see along the route. You can actually take your photo next to the statute standing on a corner in Winslow, AZ, Even a mural of a gal in a flatbed ford..I-40 exit 252, then east on Route 66 (Second St.) Northwest corner of Second and Kinsley Ave. In Holbrook, you will pass the Wigwam Hotel-You know, the T-pee rooms. Good Luck, be safe, and congratulations.

    Good luck my friend. Looking forward to the pics. Made the trip from SOCAL to Connecticut with a stop off in Texas ( see my brother). There is a lot to see if you have the time:)...
    hope the weather stays in your favor. Also, it will be interesting to see how the HC does right out of chute.
    Take care.
    BTW...if you see HCDC's Hellcat, let him know where it is...it seems to be getting out more than he does:D:D

    UnBELIEVABLE! Got to the dealership, got changed and the truck pulled up. 6 months of waiting and 9 hours of traveling here and the car shows up 8 minutes after me. Couldn't have scripted it better.

    Getting PDI and wash done now.

    She's dirty, but here's the first pics. image.jpg image.jpg
