    I posted the gory details of a failed 15 order, VON hell etc in another thread but this one is all about picking up the car. PA dealer got an allocation in November, car was ordered on the 4th, VIN on the 5th and delivered on 12/8 beating all reasonable expectations. On 12/8, I asked my salesman if they thought the car would arrive this week or next since I heard it was in the US as of this Monday. The response I received was "Oh goodness no. It can take another couple weeks easy to arrive." I let him know that when it arrives, please take pics of it on the truck and coming off for the scrap book. 30 mins after this convo, I start getting text messages with pictures of the car on the truck!! I couldn't believe it and neither could the salesman. He joked that he was outside talking to a customer about a truck and saw the car carrier roll up and what looked to be my car. He started to stutter and excused himself so he could go take some pictures haha.

    I had secured financing through a credit union to get a good rate but the dealer called yesterday and said they could beat it. It's not by much but every little bit counts and it saved me an extra 3 hours of my time avoiding a trip to the credit union to finalize paperwork on late notice. The voucher from the 15 order will come in handy as well.

    Weather is looking good so it appears today is going to be a very great day. They were nice enough to ask if I wanted to be here for the PDI which I of course said yes. I should arrive around 10AM (~2hr drive). Pics will be posted later on today after I get home!

    Thanks guys! Wow what a day. Roughly a 2 hr ride to the dealer but it went smoothly. I arrived and they had the car in the back storage area sitting all by itself. I asked them not to detail the car since I will handle this myself. Just a simple wash.

    The car looks phenomenal. The salesmen fired it up and man did it sound good in person. The videos do not it any justice. The ride home was smooth and comfortable. I gave it maybe 1/2 throttle hear and there. Man did it downshift quick and scoot. I can't wait to hit 500 miles and lay the wood. I may not last that long.

    Here are a few rough pics. I will take more.

    Congrats. Good looking car.

    How long do you think it will be before a third owner of a Hellcat Charger uses it as a licensed taxi cab.... ;) I hope to see that one day.

    Thanks!

    I'd give it 9 years and 2 engines later.

    Thanks! I'm very happy with the color combo and contrast of the Sepia.

    Congratulations !!! Glad to hear that you made it to delivery date. Were you there for the PDI ? You had mentioned that the dealership offered for you to be there. My dealership has offered the same for me when mine comes in one day. Your car looks BADASS, great color choice !
