    Hey Everyone!

    I just bought a black Hellcat last week Saturday. I had a new 2009 SRT Challenger back in the day, but moved on to a 2012 Shelby GT500, then a 2013 Shelby GT500 as I wanted more power but told my wife I would move back to a Challenger if they came out with a supercharged version, so I am back! :) This is my 4th SRT vehicle (my wife drives a 2014 SRT9 Jeep currently), but also have a souped up 2014 C63 AMG 507 Edition as a daily driver.

    I am getting the Hellcat detailed, and front end wrapped (XPEL clear bra), and a custom stripe package done starting Monday, so I will hold off on pictures until that's complete.

    I look forward to getting to know everyone here better!

    I haven't had a whole lot of time to drive it yet and to be honest, I am waiting until I get the wrap on the front end... Way too many rocks and debris on the roads around here and I don't want to take any chances. :) But from what little driving I have done, the Hellcat is way more "substantial" and much, much easier to drive (remember, I haven't even given the Hellcat half throttle yet..). The GT500 basically wants to kill you. I have taken a number of professional driving courses and had I not had that experience, I would have easily crashed it a handful of times and most likely would have killed myself in at least 4 of those instances. The GT500 *IS* extremely fun to drive though and once you know where its limits are, can crush 99% of cars on the road. My overall verdict is still out until I get more miles on the Hellcat, but I expect to like it more in the end.

    Here is a picture of what I traded in:

    And I found a picture of a black hellcat on the net and used it as a baseline to create the stripes I am going to get done. Let me know what you guys think:
