    Stopped at my favorite pizza place around lunch time today. Parked in the open with a nicely customized pickup a few spots over. Had to wait a bit for my order. I surveyed the place (old habit from comin' up in Brooklyn) and noticed tables with elderly patrons, the owners grabbing a bite, and a young lady.

    The young lady left, a few minutes pass, I get my order and leave. As I approach my car she is in the cool pickup and asks about my Hellcat. Turns out she has one also, she is all about Mopar! As we talked we realized our cars are from the same dealership from around the same time...wait...I think her car is the one I originally lusted after as it came off the carrier with my car! It was not available :( I love my Phantom but Sublime still haunts me :p. I snapped the pics below at the dealership last summer.

    Pretty cool if, after almost a year, I bumped into the owner of the Hellcat my car transported with. Hope she is on the forum as it would be great to have a local with a cat to chat with. I'm surrounded by Mustangs!!! Here are the pics of the cars together last summer before I took delivery.

    Last 2 pics are my baby right after she came home.

    Very good story and even better thread post. I have a lot of pics and video from the truck when it was coming down the street even. What happened to you is pretty damn special. Great story snd another win for the hellcat brotherhood and sisterhood. Thanks for posting. I Hope this thread takes off because I don't have a story like that. Something tells me I will someday

    My 04 Rumblebee had a similar story. I traded it to a dealer about an hour away for (don't hate me...) a Harley Davidson Edition F150. It had really low mileage and was in mint condition.

    About 6 years later I saw it in a Shoprite parking with the driver was sitting in it. He was quite elderly. I introduced myself and asked if the last four digits on his console plaque were XXXX. He smiled and thanked me for taking such good care of the truck for him. Made me happy to see him so pleased with it.

    I recognized my truck because of the unique bedrails and trailer hitch plug I added to it. I see it on the road every few months and it makes me smile every time. Same elderly gentleman driving her :cool:

    The reason why I think will happen to me is for the same reason. I really babied my 14 r/t and didn't want to sell it. I know the guy who bought and he told me that I would get first shot if he decided to ever sell it. Which I may add he didn't plan anytime soon because he is 80 years old.

    Small world buddy. Black with BM wheels and the red interior looks great. Think you came out just dandy!

    Didn't consider that Matt. Man, that would be too crazy :eek:

    Thanks. It does suit me better. I like the mild Mad Max flavor of the black and Brass Monkey look. Another way the universe keeps things aligned. If I had Sublime I'd be jonesin' for the one year Phantom paint :D.

    Thanks, then I'll confess to trading a 2014 GT500 to get the cat. I've had a few Ford's and Chevy's in my automotive history o_O. Hope your RT finds its way home someday, under the best of circumstances for the current owner.

    Thanks, JollyR. The red and red belts do add a bit of spice and complement the red Brembos. They reminded me of the Black Mamba look I really enjoyed a dozen years ago.

    I also hope fellow forum members add their Hellcat or Mopar stories to this thread. Always makes for interesting reading that adds a personal side to our lust for Mopar.

    Yeah, it was a cool ride and one of 200 Black Mamba's produced. I had it for a a few years then traded it. Moved to an '08 vert.

    It was cool having the Mamba and the Rumblebee, which was my daily driver. Good times, good memories, and all Mopar, baby!!!

    Thanks, JollyRoger! Wish I could have kept them all. Having said that, I feel very fortunate to be able to negotiate hard style and experience a variety of rides over time.
