    So yesterday was almost a tragic disaster for me.
    I have been waiting in Vienna, VA for about 10 days now waiting for my car to be delivered. Day after day, fake promises were made, and my dealer actually lied to me about my cars location and when it would be delivered. So 10 days of waiting in my hotel wishing I was exploring D.C., I woke up yesterday morning and finally decided I was going to fly home. I booked a flight from IAD to ABQ for 2pm that afternoon (it was 10 am when I booked it). I packed my things, called my dealer and told him I was leaving and for them to call me when the car was physically on the showroom floor. I checked out of my hotel, headed towards the dealership to drop off the rental, and called a cab.
    Well guess what showed up while I was signing my paperwork for the rental.
    No hotel room, clothes messily thrown back in my suitcase, and a flight leaving in 2.5 hours.
    Oh, and my Hellcat.

    So 5 hours later with a missed flight and no where to sleep (don't worry, the dealership put me up in a room in the Marriott next doors on the top floor, city view and everything), I finally got to see the car I've been waiting on and pushing myself through surgery and recovery to see.
    I have never been more excited, terrified, pissed off and in love.

    I promised myself that I was going to beat the odds, fight death and buy myself a damn hellcat when I was in a rollover that should have killed me 387 days ago, and on May 6, 2015 I got to meet her.

    For some reason it won't let me upload pictures, so i'll try and post some in a comment.

    Outstanding! First glad you're stubborn enough to still be here after a terrible accident and crazy enough to want a Hellcat. I tip my hat and hope you and the new Cat have an joyful and uneventful trip home.

    Oh no good, sorry to hear. Mine was actually sent off pretty quickly. Build started Jan. 17, built March 6, delivered May 6. Not too bad. And yes, I bought from Koons Dodge from Laura Hall. She was WONDERFUL. They were very nice and took care of me, despite all the issues we had with the delivery.
    I actually got mine for 85k. Yes, it's a little (LOT) over sticker, but to me it was worth it. I paid it off with my settlement, so to me the car really outweighed the price. I couldn't be happier.
