    I traded my Pitch Black 2012 SRT8 392 for the Hellcat.
    My back up plan was not to give up my car until the new one came in.
    In the event a new Hellcat did not come my way I would keep the 392.
    I only had one order from my Trusted dealership.

    Back up plan #2 would have been to try and order a 2016 in Fall after another summer with the '12.

    B/U plan is buy a 2016 but if Chevy makes something I like(key) that beats a HC then Dodge loses my business. Sick of this crap from Dodge.

    Keeping my 2010 plum crazy R/T is the back up plan for me.

    I gave up on my order and found a dealer that had one in transit. Wasn't the color I wanted and had way too many options, but it was good enough.

    Back up plan was to buy the complete opposite of what I wanted. I did stick to my guns about getting a manual though.

    My backup plan was essentially "No way out." I sold my modded GWE 392 last August to keep me motivated. I then put an order in with a dealership on 9/9 and entered BX hell, but didn't stop there and kept calling and pestering dealerships in a 13 state area about my interest in getting a Hellcat. The downside to that approach was I had a lot of greedy clowns out there calling me when they first started shipping and offering me one for "only" a 25k markup over MSRP. The upside was I had one that called me a couple days before Thanksgiving with a canceled order and offering it to me. I jumped at it.

    That is what I was just thinking looking at all the Chargers in transit although it was not the color I wanted, but then I thought why give Dodge my business at all. I love my dealer but unfortunately they will be the messenger on this debacle. I started looking at M5's this morning and thinking about going and test driving a Porsche Macan Turbo.
    Ultimately I still have my SRT 8 Charger.

    My back up plan was a 2015 sublime challenger srt, with A8, such a amazing looking car,, that was the first and only challenger I have ever sat in before buying my hellcat..

    my backup plan was to find one on the lot at about 5k over and settle on not getting my exact car (ie maybe not leather seats, or not Pitch black etc)
