    I should have this car in about a week. I looked everywhere around NY but had to get it shipped from down south. Wasn't so much about the cost but the supply in my area. Anyone have any issues having these cars shipped "sight unseen"? It a Tor Red w/ satin hood automatic. Cannot wait, already ordered the cover and warned the neighbors! Any other new buyer suggestions?

    Hello, and welcome to the forum! Grtz on the HellCat, I know you are excited! Post some pictures after it arrives, when you get time, we'd love to see it.

    Several people have had their cars shipped to them with no issues, so hopefully it goes smoothly for you, also. My suggestion would be to get some splash guards on the Cat as soon as possible. The tires are bad about throwing rocks and other debris from the road up onto the paint on the lower doors and bottom rear quarter panel. Is your Cat a Challenger or a Charger?

    Welcome and do an inspection on everything before driving off the lot. We had a list a while back we compiled but idk where it is I think back in end of last year or early this year of what to look out for.

    Congrats on the upcoming purchase!

    Recco the fly and drive method. Besides getting your eyeballs on it you get to do the break-in on the drive home. A plane ticket, towel, some snacks and some painters tape in a go bag. I flew to GA and drove back to VA (600 miles) all in a day.
