    Our NEW Charger Hellcat,,,,, trying to find time to post some pictures and a thought or two. We ordered our Charger Hellcat from a good friend, Andy, owner/gen. mgr. at Chrysler Winona on Jan 13th. He told me that he could sure order one but doubted that we would ever see the car. He had no allocation and had not taken an order prior to ours. Small rural town, small dealer, best people on the planet. We told him to "run it up the pole and see if it would fly", and he did. Our order moved right along, BX in 3 days and so the story goes. Each status change followed by only a few days, D1 hit 50 days from the date the order was placed, KZ 17 days later. We took delivery on April 13. Andy said we have to be the luckiest people on earth, he has no idea how he even got the car. He said he did make some phone calls and hoped he could deliver. We showed the car in the show room for 3 days and had an open house and served lunch on one of the days.
    I have not run it on a track yet, don't know when that will happen. This thing is some kind of monster, I am sure it would eat our 2012 300 SRT and never know it had eaten any thing, wouldn't even leave an after taste. We have a 02 Z06, on a road course the Z would do very well against the HC, but no place else, the HC would eat that alive also. This monster gets to 125 before you ever know it is happening and is pulling as hard at 125 as it is at 60, crazy. Very comfortable, easy driving, love it. Probably our last "super car" we are both 73 and enjoy cruising with our two little dogs, watching grandkids, all grown up now, and watching one great grand daughter start the journey. There is not one complaint I have with the car, no paint problem, no sound system problem, none at all, what a monster machine. I guess I could complain about tires, way to small, reminds me of a pro football player in baby booties. This forum,Brampton Builder, ResumeSpeed have been just wonderful, thanks so much. 11011550_952080374825289_3478738925574498462_n.jpg 11080935_952080498158610_6425857638034629656_n.jpg 11133681_953239344709392_7867312815041739560_n.jpg 11146213_953239058042754_3328738192857326663_n.jpg 11150761_953239288042731_7669038167118427847_n.jpg

    Great choice. I thought I was a little nuts ordering a Charger Hellcat, as I am 71. We are in the experienced customers.

    Ok, I see something in these pictures i havent seen in other Charger Hellcat pics, and that is the supercharged badge on the hood, and the build number plate which looks like it may be under the hood? Is this new or did you have these custom? Car looks great!

    Gotcha. Looks good. I had that color on my 2011 RT Charger, its was hard for me to go with silver for my Charger Hellcat, it looks awesome in the granite color too.

    We were so lucky, and the wait will be worth it once you get your car.
