    Had to make a run down to see my Dad to pick up some parts and stuff he grabbed at the border for me. Stopped in at the dealership in Lethbridge (Alberta) where a buddy of mine works to see the owner's Challenger HC (A8)

    Once mine arrives, I will be looking for different rims. Too busy for my taste. As I had hoped, the Sublime is a dead ringer for the Sublime from the 2007 Daytona's.

    They also had this display out front which I thought was a cool "skittles" truck collection

    I try not to talk about the 'stuff' that I 'grab at the border', just to prevent future prosecution, but to each his own!

    I bet I have seen 25-30 people taking pictures of my HellCat. I didn't realize so many people know what they are.

    Trucks look awesome perhaps a few of those colors might find there way onto the Hellcat family. Wife's Hellcat is roped off at the dealer as well till we can get her home between crappy storms. Dealer says we know a lot of people he didn't think we knew thinking he would let them sit in it. NOT

    Told my dealer to call me as soon as the truck hits the lot cause I'm going to sleep in it till it gets delivered!

    I went into go dodge in Edmonton to see the cat they had next to the viper with the same price tag. It was sold so thankfully the salesmen just kind off left me alone. When one did approach me he started talking to me like I didn't have a clue what it was. Then I quizzed him on what color black it was and he came up with a color that doesn't exist is when I decided to leave the dealership.

    Not many "professional" sales people left out there. Most are just order takers especially since so many dealers no longer pay commission. Doesn't seem to matter if your trying to buy a Hellcat, truck, BMW, or whatever, if you don't know what you want your screwed.

    100% agree on that. Makes me laugh everytime the salesperson runs over to the manager desk and ask if he can make that deal. He comes back with an offer, the client counters, salesperson has to run over to the manager again.

    They can't enter any orders, they can't agree on any deals. I don't even know why they exist, just put more managers on the floor.

    That's why my interaction with the salesman is pretty limited

    For the most part we've been fortunate enough to know the owners or gm's or finance mgrs and we deal with them up front and THEN they turn it over to the next "sales person" in line to handle the transfer of plates etc. so they earn their keep. Like it that way.
