    After all the lurking, participating in numerous threads, soul searching and the constant prodding from my friends and even my wife, I finally ordered our Challenger SRT today!

    She'll be Bright White with the A8 tranny, the Black/Ruby Red interior, Technology Group and the Uconnect NAV.

    This has been one heck of an interesting voyage. We originally intended to get the SXT Plus. Then we drove the R/T Plus and liked that one much better regarding performance. But of course (now that we were on a roll,,,) we said; "Why not try out the Scat Pack that everyone is raving about with the big 392. So we did. At this point, there was no going back to the R/T, lol. And of course, we wanted to see what the optional 'High Performance Seats felt like as comfort is a top priority for us. The dealership didn't have a Scat with that option,,,, but they DID have an SRT which comes with those seats standard. We sat in the seat of the SRT and should've stopped there. But NOOoooooo,,,,... :confused: We had to test drive it as well! The salesman set the suspension to it's softest setting (Street) and now we had the power of the Scat and the road compliant comfort of the R/T Plus. At this point, we were sunk! I even threatened the sales person not to even MENTION the Hellcat! The price of the SRT was way over what we had originally intended to spend and 485 HP is more then we'll ever use!

    So, in closing,,, now starts the waiting game for a time machine replica of the car we wanted to have when we were dating. I had a 62 Chrysler 300 at the time, which was nicknamed "Mongoose". We're naming our new SRT "Mongoose 2". We started out in a Mongoose, and now we'll end our days in one as well!
    ;)

    That's exactly what I was afraid of. Luckily for me, they didn't have a Hellcat on the lot! ;)

    LMAO,,,.... Talk about opposite sides of a rainbow. :)

    It just made me laugh the way you said it. Sounded like you were saying 'you think you were going to be 77 today'. I know what you meant but it was funny (to me at least). Don't forget... Your Hellcat is in the garage.

    Absolutely, "LOVE" the car! Every time I take her out, it's just as exciting and enjoyable as the first time I drove her off the lot! The A8 tranny is amazing! It's as if it has a mind of it's own that always wants to maximize performance. The power and sound of the 392 has put a permanent smile on our faces, lol.

    Damn near close to it. But it was worth every penny! And I forgot to mention the adjustable suspension, tranny and steering settings. It's like having more then just one car. Yeah, it was worth it! I can just imagine how the Hellcat owners feel with the extra power and that fantastic super-charger whine! :)
