    Howdy from the great white north where these cars are made! So I ordered my first 2016 Dodge Challenger Hellcat (no I'm not planning to own a fleet just yet) yesterday. The folks at the dealership advise it will take about 4 months to arrive (anyone out there with recent experience?). I'm hoping to learn from all you Ladies and Gents on what I need to know after delivery.
    I've been a Chrysler fan for most of my life but my last performance vehicle was the 1988 Shelby Lancer. I'm so happy to be back on board with the best muscle car made in North America. Looking forward to being part of this community!

    Congrats on your new Cat :)

    I wish I could help you but I lucked out with mine. It was ordered by the dealer the first day the 2016's were available last August. I put my money down the first week of October and it arrived mid November. Lucky for me they hadn't started to build the car so I could get exactly what I wanted. Apparently since the car wasn't sold yet from the dealership it was put at a lower priority. Once i put money down it jumped right up to production.

    Anyone else want to chime in on how long it took them to get their car?

    They're building them very quick! Too quick for me, from placing the order to delivery about a month. Was not expecting it until late summer but it is at the dealer now. Good thing they are holding it for me until I take delivery, June or so I am thinking. Do not expect delays :)

    Mine has been delayed, now showing 26th arrival by rail, and missed the anticipated ship date of 4/5.

    You're in Canada, best estimate is 6 to 8 weeks from date you get a VIN also known as status going to D1.

    Good luck. It will be in soon.
    Did you say Charger?

    Nope, Challenger. Go Mango, Racing stripes, sun roof, P Zero tires, black rims. My mid-life crisis has started to dig her claws into my back so the hope is I can leave her in the dust when the car arrives. Spent all day today on YouTube but I'm guessing I'll learn more from you guys then those who love to post burnout videos.

    Bah to the mid-life crisis! I am about to be 50 and I am loving life! Never have I felt so free and confident! I am young enough to still do pretty much what I want, and old enough to: 1) be able to afford it, 2) not have to answer to anyone but the Police, my husband, and God (not necessarily in that order), and 3) not give a crap if anyone does not like the choices I make. Life is short, but sweet, so ... live it UP! :D :cool::p;)

    April I just skated past 52 and to be honest I have life by the low round circular things. A great woman by my side and soon a fantastic chariot to carry her in. In reading your signature and looking at your avatar you may find it funny that I told my nephew that the very first song I'm going to play in the car as I drive it off the lot is INXS "The Devil Inside".

    I'm not a sensie around here, but there's a lot of cool advice available, search engine is good. Hope you get a VIN soon. It rolls downhill from there.

    The first song I am going to play as I am driving off the lot in Jimi tomorrow is, of course, "Purple Haze", followed by a rock block of Hendrix songs. Especially my favorite one of all ...
