    i know this may seem pretty mundane (since it's about the older ones) but it seems like the youngsters get an incredible amount of attention. There have been a few postings here on the younger generation (your kid or grand kid LOL) buying a Hellcat. And it seems like a lot of opinions and tell all stories follow (and they are funny or somewhat good common sense advise) but what about the older Hellcat owners. I'd be willing to venture most Hellcat owners are in their late 40s-50s and yeah the 60-70 year old as as well. But is anyone 80 years old here? And if you are let us know because you need to start a posting. And the headline should maybe be something like this: "I am the oldest one here to own a Hellcat and I'll smoke all u youngsters" or something like that. And then all the forum members will start chiming in. And some of the possible response will be: hey old man bet your insurance is $300 a year cause u can't drive over 55. And then another response will be do u drive it to the coffee and donut shop? Can you actually hear the Super Charger or do your ears always have a ringing and whining sound (may have been from the nagging wife all those years). Anyways who here is the oldest Hellcat owner? And let us all know cause if anyone here has some good and practical advise for these young guns that would be you. And I'm still a youngster just 53 years and when I was 21 years old I should have been dead in my 1984 VOLSWAGEN GTI which I crashed for all the wrong reasons. But heck when I was kid I just wanted to have fun:D
    These were my vehicles when I was 20 years old. And I did lots of crazy things back then and lucked out to say the least. For us older ones, we know u have to take the school of "Hard Knocks" to know.

    51 here, and feeling older everyday in this "brave new world"... wouldn't want to be young anymore... so the Hellcat will have to do for reliving the past! That and the Viper ACR-E!

    MOPAR or NO CAR!

    I was at the dealership the other day looking at the pearl white charger hc that had just come in and a guy pulls up and easily was in his 70's and bought it.

    I'm 53, but I know of a buyer who was late 70's.

    The Hellcat is a kitten when you need it to be, so I think it's easily adaptive regarding age. I sure don't like the idea of someone very young driving a 700 HP car. When I was in my early 20's I was pretty stupid with the fairly low power of my first cars. With 700 I might not be here.

    I agree with you about being young with this car. When I was 17 or 18 coming up on curfew holy crap 85 - 90 on 30mph back roads. No fear. And that was in a Buick Skylark with 4cyl.

    Maturity comes with a lot more patience and appreciation. You hope.

    Went up to HHP to get a baseline dyno and as I was leaving this guy in a red Challenger HC drove by me. Unless he had a super hard life growing up, I'd say he was pushing 80 if not past it.
