    Last GM flaked out, where they supposedly didn't have anyone in line in front of me, to place an order. Started another search today, contacted 20 or so dealers. Out of that, 2 responded with possible options that didn't have a crazy ADM and had cars on-lot or inbound, or a short waiting list for orders. Currently I have an order in at a small local dealer, over 2 months now, still just a VON. And there are 2-3 other orders in front of me.

    Dealer #1, supposedly has 3 inbound, started at $7k over MSRP, I thought I'd counter with $1k over and see where it goes. One he wants to keep, the other two could be 're-routed'...first red flag. One is the color that is my first choice. I asked him for the specs on those two but never got them from him since 1:00 today, supposedly swamped by customers...2nd red flag. So I'm going to call the GM at this dealer tomorrow, hopefully to get the straight scoop.

    Dealer #2, has delivered at least one HC, and only has one person in line in front of me to place an order. This salesman was very responsive, seemed to be legit and knowledgeable. I'm going to get with him tomorrow. If all goes well, $1000 deposit, refundable until VIN is issued, $1000 over MSRP. If it pans out, I will talk to him about naming him here. Maybe someone can get an order in behind mine?

    I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow.

    We shall see. I'm just trying to share my experiences with the rest of my brethren here. So we can all learn and hopefully capitalize.

    Appreciate the sharing. You are echoing my actions with other dealers as well. I can totally relate with your dilemma. My problem was I started to 'go crazy" with all the info and with trying to keep track of everything. Big load lifted off my shoulders when I made my decision.....small local dealer, 1st in line, decent price for this market, ordered what I wanted.....now just need that 1 stinking allocation.We all have our different strategies on how to get our HC's.

    Good luck ! If you ever cave into $5k over then my sales rep can get you in line. He's two months out for allocations filled up and he said in January there were 4 hellcat challenger allocations that came and went. He's booked through April 2015 allocations already.

    I'm in the same boat. Been in BX for 2+ months now. So I've started looking around...find one on-lot or another dealer that has fewer in line in front of me..

    For $5k over, I don't want to be 'in-line'. I want to drive one off the lot. At the very least, be the first person in line..

    Dealer #1 emailed earlier saying that the Inventory Manager was off today but that he'd get with him first thing Monday morning.

    I wouldn't even bother with these clowns. Most solid dealers teach their sales staff how to check incoming inventory, and if not them, the sales manager on duty at the head desk finalizing deals can do it. Anyone who needs an "inventory manager" to check Dealerconnect is half-assed or run stupidly IMO.

    Do they have a printing press in the business office to so that they can make copies of sales contracts?
