    So I'm in a fairly good sized town in WA state. And so far the only Charger HC and one of only a 4-5 HC in the whole city and surrounding area. So needless to say many people have never seen a HC in person let alone a Charger HC. So pretty much every where I go I get a lot of attention (some good and some bad). But what's funny is the wife is not a car person at all. To her it's a car and one that we really didn't need (we will save that for another thread). So when I tell her the stories about how people react to the cat she just blows it off. That is until we went out together in the cat for the first time and had both men and women gawking, congratulating us, taking pics, etc . By the time we got home she looked at me and said wow people really do like this car don't they? Yep she's a rock star. Now I know that this won't last forever but this sure is fun having a car that so many people want to see and take pics of. Anyway hope you all are having fun with your rock star!

    Glad you're having fun with the Hellcat. A lot of people have no clue they made a Charger Hellcat around here. It's nice to have something you don't see all the time!

    It's hit or miss.... Those that know what it is go nuts over it.

    Had a guy that works in our building stop and chat with me about it this morning (he has a Challenger SXT). Been trying to see who owned the car for a while and finally crossed paths.

    I'm somewhat famous now.

    I took mine into work for the first time last week. The guys that knew I was bringing it in all saw it...and then days later people from all over came out of the woodwork to say stuff - "I missed your car the other day" or "I saw your car, it is awesome". I didn't know you knew it was here!

    I love it when they hear it before they see it, then the looks of astonishment, shock and awe. :cool:

    Feels good getting the attention these cars deserve. I have the only Charger Hellcat in the UK and only around 10 Challenger Hellcats in the UK.

    Love it, I have taken my car to work two times in almost ten months,, the people here want to see it before I store it for winter.... Sometimes when I'm out with it, people ask me if its a real hellcat, Are people crazy,, where are you going to get a hellcat engine at, then change the bumper, hood, and seat and dash from a sxt.. stupid people, one guy insisted it was not a real hellcat
