    I was looking at trading my 2014 black Camaro SS (2SS/RS) in on either a ZL1 or a C7 2015 Corvette later this year/early next year. I started to look at the Hellcat and after doing some research, made my choice (all 3 are in the same price range).

    My only issue is that I had a hard time trying to find a local dealer who wasn't trying to gouge and upmark the MSRP on the Challenger Hellcat...but I finally found one today. Put my deposit down and ordered a Bright White w/black leather, satin black hood, and 8 spd auto. Will be receiving my VON either tomorrow or Thursday.

    As I am # 8 on this dealers list, I won't be seeing this to at least Jan '15.

    Welcom Cal45! I think you pulled the trigger on the right choice.

    I call Florida my adopted home and look forward to some nice vanity plates for the Hellcats.

    welcome cal45! great to hear you ended up choosing to stick with the hellcat. Once you get your VON, make sure that your name and address is on it as the customer and that its not put in as a dealer inventory order.Hope you enjoy the site!

    Thanks - why is my name and address important to have instead of the dealer? Is this so the dealer cannot sell out from under you? I do have a fully refundable deposit.

    At this time, dealer inventory orders are rejected, they are prioritizing only actual customer ordered ones otherwise you'll be stuck in the queue for a long time.

    Did a quick change to my order this morning as I was on the fence regarding the black hood option so I removed that option from my order. About an hour ago, I received my copy of the order that went in and I now have a VON plus my name/address is listed as customer w/a Scheduling Priority: 1-Sold Order.

    My dealer was afraid to change anything on the initial order even seat belts as he said if he made a change he was worried the car would get lost in the system and pushed back
