    Hello! I wanted to share my small story and experience with the car so far. I was expecting the car to delivered on Monday since that's what dealer showed and RS confirmed. I was half asleep in my bed probably having hellcat dreams (lol!) and my phone started to ring. I thought it was my alarm at first so I thought aw damn, it's time to get up for my appointment already?! I looked at the phone and it's the dealer calling. I immediately jump up and answer the call. He asks how fast can I get down there because my car was delivered. I thought I was dreaming! I planned on cleaning out my old car and getting ready to trade it in on Monday. So, I had to grab my car and start cleaning it out. I don't think I've ever cleaned and vacuumed anything faster in my entire life!

    I got to the dealership and was absolutely amazed. The car was in the showroom and everyone was standing around it. I was still in shock that it was here already. I've had red cars my entire life so the Jazz Blue looked incredible!! I went through all the fun paperwork and as I am signing papers, I hear the car start up 5 feet behind me. It sent chills down my neck as I turned around to just take the moment in. I completely forgot what I was doing while I was just staring at it. The sound was so powerful and stunning, everyone came out from their offices and other rooms to come look at what it was. People were asking to take pictures and I told them to go for it while I was talking to the internet sales manager there who told me that he had a lot of people calling about my car and wanting to buy it. I told him that he should have just sent them my way and I'd kindly (yeah right!) tell them NO!

    The first time I sat down in it and turned it on, it was such a surreal feeling. I am a taller guy so I love the charger for the extra room. I initially thought about getting a Challenger instead but I am starting a family soon so the Charger made the most sense. I was surprised at how much leg room I had compared to my 07 SRT8 Charger. I had almost double the room while feeling very comfortable in the seat. I was so careful driving it out of the dealership, I think I may have been pushing the 10mph mark the entire time! After hopping on the highway (ugh 5pm traffic on a Friday), I got off to drive home and was able to punch the pedal a little more. All I can say is WOW!!!! I've never felt a ride so smooth yet so powerful. The ride was so smooth, I didn't even realize how fast I was going. The engine is definitely amazing, I can't even put into words how awesome it sounds even just sitting there waiting for the light. It made me chuckle after I was walking around after class last night and hearing some turd car with a loud muffler make noise on campus last night and I thought oh wow, wait till you hear ACTUAL muscle. The inside is so nice and I love the customization that the car offers. I still can't believe that a car this strong has so much to offer. I love the car and hope everyone else feels the same when they get theirs! Here are some pictures I took with my phone at the dealer. Sorry for quality!

    " but I am starting a family soon so the Charger made the most sense."

    Nice choice, first time I have seen the jazz on a Charger. Have fun, I've got a little less than 190 miles until I can unleash the Hell and it's killing me!

    Congrats on the beautiful new addition to your family. I've always liked that color!
    I will be driving mine soon, dealer just called and said she's in. 4 days early even!!! I can hardly wait.
    That has to be the longest contract signing ever with the beast idling behind you. Enjoy her, she's gorgeous! :cool:
