    ...with myself for waiting so long to buy one! This thing is amazing. Of course I knew it would be really powerful, but I was a little surprised at all of the technology in the car. It is waaaaay more powerful than anything I have owned before. Looks like I have a lot to learn.

    I found the one I wanted at Avondale Dodge (LHM) dealer in AZ, only about 18 miles from the PHX airport. My wife and I flew in and drove it home. It worked out perfectly, because I was following the break in procedure on the way home, and hit 500 miles just a few blocks from my house. It got better gas mileage than I expected, and a really smooth ride on the highway. We had not seen the color (maximum steel) in person before purchasing so I was a little nervous, but I love it. My wife is really loves it too. When she hears sports car or muscle car she was thinking it was going to be bare-bones and uncomfortable.

    I have to put a plug in for Charlie Favreau at Larry H. Miller Dodge Ram Avondale. I hate buying new cars cause I don't like dealing with the salespeople and dealers, but this place was great. No hassle, no games, extremely helpful, cars at MSRP, it was super easy to buy from them even from out of town. If you are looking for a hellcat, they have several chargers and challengers (all at msrp).

    Going to try and post some pics, hopefully it will work. The color really does look different depending on the light.

    Hope this works:

    Wow, finally a good pic of Max steel. Good looking car. Mine is same color, and probably going past my house right now. Too bad I have to wait for it to go north, get off the train, and go east by truck. I won't be able to get it before going on vacation this Friday. But, seeing pics of what it will look like really helps!

    Congrats on the car, and thanks for the pics.

    Welcome to the secret order. Now you can learn the secret handshake. Just please don't call any Hellcat a sports car! It is a muscle car. To me sports car make me think of some nerdy psychiatrist type with a turtle neck sweater and a pipe in an MG convertible(Barby car).We even made fun of those cars during the original muscle car craze when I was in grade school. Please no sports cars here. Congrats.

    Some people think it is, but it is the Steel color. It can look black, until you see it next to black. It also looks blue-ish, until it is parked next to a Jazz Blue. At the dealer it was parked between Jazz Blue and Black, and it looked like it was in-between them both. In person, I think it looks like Jazz, Granite, and Black got together and had a baby. My wife calls the color smoke, cause she thinks it looks smokey in person.
