    Just a little background on me so you can fully appreciate the story. I have a daughter in college, a son in highschool, and another younger son that is 5 weeks old. My wife had a work get together yesterday and wanted to go (first time out since the baby was born). I dropped her off in the hellcat with junior strapped in the back seat. Went home for a couple hours and then we went back to pick the wife up. She comes out of the restaurant with her girlfriends in tow to see the new baby. They stop and I hear one of them say "we have to get a pic of the car!" Then I was politely told that I was not driving a "dad car". I beg to differ. 4 doors and a baby seat! couldn't qualify more! I smiled on the inside! While they only can appreciate the car for what it looks like they have no idea what else it is packing!

    Hey, if it has a backseat its a dad car. I have 4 kids ages 9, 6, 3, & 1. I have taken every one for a ride and the kids LOVE it.

    On another note, congrats on the new addition to your family.

    I have a car seat in the back of my challenger for my 7 year old.... So I second the idea of it being a dad car.

    Hell a viper could be a dad car, kid doesn't have to ride in the back

    It's perfectly practical for kids! I love the idea of having a Hellcat as a kid hauler lol

    The worst thing is my kids are always trying to sneak contraband in mine. The last time I took them to a car show,I spent an hour picking up cheese-zits out of the back seat.

    I have three 8 year old girls and they love riding in my Hellcat Charger. I don't like the fact that they tell their mom what speeds we hit sometimes, but that's life and consequences.
