    Hey everyone,

    I'm currently working overseas in Korea for the US Air Force. I just happened to go to Osan AB this weekend and low and behold the Military Auto Sales at the BX has a Hellcat sitting in front! Earlier this year I spoke to them generically about Hellcat availability and they said they may get some allocations. They took down my name and number and said they'd give me a call if they get an allocation. Needless to say, that didn't happen!

    Turns out the only Hellcat in Korea was a custom order for another customer who then had finance problems. Since that deal fell through, someone else quickly snapped up this one here in country. Fortunately as this story unfolded, the sales rep told me they just got five allocations last week. Four of them sold within days. The only one they had left on plant hold was a 2016 bright white model with auto trans, no other options. It's one of the lowest price Hellcats I've seen, not to mention the military pricing and rebates. I'm pretty excited about setting up the delivery to my home back in the US and can't wait to drive it this summer! I've been dreaming about this for a long time. What an exciting weekend it was! Hope to catch some of you at future shows and talk shop.

    I've been a Mopar fan since I was a young kid. When I was about 5 I remember my uncle tearing out of the family Chrysler dealership in his '70 4 speed Hemi Roadrunner with the air grabber hood. I was hooked on the sight and sound of that car. Technology just keeps getting better and I'm so grateful that spirit has been kept alive and I have this opportunity to continue the dream!

    Happy motoring guys...see you back stateside soon! I'll be back in time for the Mopar Nats!

    Hello, and welcome to Hellcat.org! I would like to say both a hearty Grtz on the new Hellcat, and a grateful Thank You for your service! I hope that the Hellcat lives up to all of your hopes and expectations ... I know both of mine did, especially my Plum Crazy!

    Welcome and congrats. I was stationed at Kunsan AB for a year and traveled to Osan many times. Nothing wrong with bright white. Get a couple coats of wax on that baby and it is brighter than you can imagine. Enjoy the ride and thanks for serving in our great Air Force.

    WELCOME TO THE FORUM!!!

    Also, I'd like to thank you for serving our country. I don't know if you are active duty or a civilian contractor (assume active duty) but thank you either way.

    Safe travels and congrats on the new Hellcat!!! They are truly outstanding machines!;)

    Welcome and WhooHoo on your new Cat! As a former soldier, I wished I'd joined the Air Force. It is the only branch that get the officers to do almost all of the fighting! :D

    F6F-3.....I'm a former soldier myself and I never really thought of it that way but you are correct!!! Good point;)

    If I were a "smart guy" like the OP of this thread, I'd have joined the Air Force myself.

    Thanks for all the warm welcomes everyone! Some of you really crack me up. Actually I am at Kunsan! A fellow Wolfpack bought this one off the lot...I wonder who it is? I'll let him or her know about this forum if I can catch up with them! 20160604_194227.jpg
