    I was originally going to order a Challenger, until I heard they were going to Hellcat the Charger. Now, I wish I had stayed with the Challenger b/c it looks like those orders (that car) is getting priority.

    I ordered a Charger when the ordering process opened. I selected silver, nav, HK, black sepia, and a black roof. I ordered at a Central Florida dealer and was first in line. They did not have anyone order a Challenger, BTW. This dealer is a client did not even charge a deposit. I really really want a Charger and even own the tag: H3LL CAT.

    I have been given no VON, VIN, or any real order status. FWIW, I do not even know what the VON means. This is the e-mail from Dodge to my local dealer: "They shut off the ordering to try and get the sold orders scheduled…hang tight and hopefully we’ll see some schedules." I am thinking the odds of getting the car from my dealer are slim to none.

    What do the pros suggest I do to tie up an actual car elsewhere? Thanks for your time.

    If you have an extra $10k to spend over MSRP you can probably have one in a week. Otherwise, honestly, you sit and wait to see how things play out.

    It's kind of like how the Challengers were about a month ago. There were a couple usually posted each week at MSRP that people could jump on if they wished but they'd be gone in a flash. So it is possible to get a Charger at MSRP but it's not easy by any stretch!

    OP I can offer this advice, don't just hang around in the Hellcat Purchasing section of this forum. There was a Charger at MSRP that was posted in the Charger Hellcat section recently and it went under the radar for like a day (hey that's an eternity in Hellcat terms!!) before someone snatched it up.

    You should have been given a VON, Vehicle Order Number, 5 minutes after you placed the order, or 5 minutes the dealer placed your order in the computer system. He could place the order without having a allocation. It would show as a BA pending order. This really means nothing other than the dealer placed an order. If you ask your dealer for a VON and he states he doesn't have one it means that he never placed the order or he is not telling you the truth. Again, he can place the order with no allocation for the car. A VON in BA status is the first step in the long procedure.
