    ....what did you do to calm the excitement or anxiety of the last few days of waiting for your Hellcat?

    I started thinking about this a few days ago when I got word that my Charger was about a week away from its delivery date. I'm starting to find myself on Youtube a few times everyday watching videos of people taking delivery of their cars, Charger and Challenger burnouts and just about anything Mopar. Were any of you doing things like that, or did you have to do the total opposite and try to do something to take your mind OFF receiving the car. I figured that it would be an interesting topic to find out what people had to do to survive the car delivery waiting game.
    (And sorry if someone has posted a topic like this already!:D)

    I did not sleep for DAYS! I am serious. It was horrible! The hour long drive I had from the dealership was done on pure adrenaline, and even that was gone by the time I made it home. I crawled in bed around 11 AM, and Marty said I did not move until 9 PM when I got up to potty, down a bottled water, and go crawl back into bed. I got up at 6 AM feeling MUCH better! :D I made breakfast, cleaned the kitchen, and then drove Dante around Toombs county for 2 hours, LOL!

    Loss of sleep is common. It's actually like the disclaimers on all those pharmaceutical ads :confused:. Hang in there and do whatever helps keep your mind off of it. wait, don't they make a pill for something like this o_O

    This is really getting nuts! I am sitting here watching Hellcat videos that are in German. That wouldn't be a problem if I actually understood German. (Now that I think about it, I'm not even sure that it's German!?)

    Oh well, I do know that I speak horsepower, which is all I need to know.

    I think my Hellcat fever is getting worse!:confused:
