    I'm brand new to the site, looks like a cool place to hang out. I see that I am not the only person who loves their Hellcat. So far, 10 months and 18k miles. What a car. I have owned many high-performance vehicles over the years, including Porsche. This beats the heck out of all of them for sheer crazy fun. Momentarily scared myself a couple of times when I first drove it, but think that was just my first experience with 700 hp, I guess. Love every minute I am in the car. It is my daily driver to work, slapped some Pirelli Scorpion winter tires on it and drove through the winter in Michigan. Of course, I had an M6, wouldn't even think of trying that with an automatic, but maybe that's just me. Old school, I guess. Took it on 4,300 mile road trip this spring through eastern half of the U.S., enjoyed it. This is such a GREAT road car, nice and heavy. By the way, understand the deal with test drives at the dealer, I picked mine up with 1 mile on the odometer. Took a picture of that just for proof. Anyhow, most important reason to purchase one of these beasts is that the trunk is able to accommodate at least 2 sets of golf clubs. Can't even fit anything in Mustangs, etc trunks. By the way, has anyone attended the SRT driving school? Comments? This is my third Challenger, 2010 SRT and a 1970 Challenger T/A 340 Six-Pack back in my youth! Mopar the only way to go. I find all of your postings very interesting, colorful, and of most importance, informative!

    Hi, Jet, and welcome to Hellcat.org! Grtz on the Hellcat What color did you get? I have had a 2009 TorRed SRT8 (Bane), 2013 Jazz Blue 392 (Ozzy), 2015 Redline Tricoat Pearl Hellcat (Dante), and finally my 2016 Plum Crazy Pearl Hellcat (Jimi). I adore the Challenger and as you can tell, I name all of my cars. :D

    Love the Jimi quote, still remember him. I have a 2015 Challenger Hellcat Pitch Black with black sepia leather interior and brass monkey wheels. Sounds like you have an addiction for which there is no cure LOL??

    You are correct! I had been trying to get my hands on a PC Challenger from my first one, but my timing was always off. I was going to wait on the Hellcat and see what colors were available through 2017, but my husband, Marty, talked me into the Redline, so I gave in and ordered it. Then, I died a little inside when they announced the colors for 2016 ... I was NOT a happy camper, LOL! Marty kept asking if I wanted to trade for the Plum Crazy and I kept telling him no, until I became one of 6 Challenger Hellcats in this small town, and the clincher was that the other 5 were all ... you guessed it ... REDLINE! ARGH! So, Marty asked one time too many and I now have Jimi and am SOOOO happy! Just got my vanity plate in last week, and I grin everytime I look at it! :D

    10 months and great miles on the car. I guess you can get rid of the Rookie on your av info.

    Congrats on the car and i hope no issues.
