    Between the "That car is gorgeous" "I love your car" "I want that car" "Is that a Hellcat? WOW" "It sounds amazing" "It looks bad ass bro" and all other things that I am getting from strangers I think I am going to get the evil eye anytime soon! Fortunately I come from a place where we believe in that stuff and already placed two red ribbons inside F6F, just in case :D:D
    I cannot have enough of this car, it is amazingly powerful and it drives extremely well. My wife took it for a spin yesterday and I think that she is leaving me and taking F6F and my son with her.

    My wife says the sound of tires burning scares her. Reminds her of the sound of brakes locked up, from when cars have slammed into her from behind, in the past. I explain there is a big difference between tires squeeling during acceleration and tires being locked up from a tailgater about to crash into your back bumper, but she still has that conditioned response, kinda a paranoid fear, and gets spooked whenever I spin the tires. She even requested I only use the black key fob when she's riding with me. She drove the 'cat, but drives it very timid, like it is in valet mode even when it is not!

    The good news is...you don't have to share your Hellcat that way. Imagine if your wives were like me. (Okay, minus the totally crazy thing) You would have to share your car and the tires would always be on the verge of bald. Lol. :) It's a win/win for you as it is now. You guys get to enjoy your car and never have to worry that it isn't in the garage when you get home.:D

    I can understand her reservations. Sometimes things that happen to us make a huge impression that stays with us. I was in the car with Marty when he hit the first deer with his possessed car, it was unavoidable, and terrifying. I am still shocked that we did not even get a scratch or a pulled muscle (the car was undrivable, and the only reason they did not total it was because it was brand new with less than 1500 miles). The deer in this part of Georgia are not like the ones I am accustomed to down in Florida, which in most areas are about the size of a large dog. Granted, the deer here are not the size of the ginormous ones I saw when we lived in New York, but they are NOT small here. That accident happened 4.5 years ago, and from that one experience, I am still paranoid to drive at night because that is when the deer are active. When I am forced to drive on these country roads at night, Marty laughs because my head is on a swivel, and I keep telling him to be quiet because I am concentrating on watching the sides of the road as far ahead as my eyes and the headlights allow, LOL!

    My wife made sure she was getting a red key. I originally told her it only came with one (to see what she'd say) and, of course, I had to have it. She simply said "that's not gonna cut it, I want a red key" LOL. o_O
