    70's here, if my car wasn't broke or if I already had the replacement I'd be doing the same thing!

    Well, here on the east side of Pa, the weather has had more unusual warmer days with a few cold ones here and there.
    I was out in my garden last weekend preparing them for the winter. I actually had RED strawberries growing.
    They are predicting 76 degrees for Christmas eve and my Charger is at HHP waiting for us to come and get it, as it's returned back to the street tune. I just can't wait, but I'm not sure when I we can get there. Christmas is a wonderful family time for TC and I to enjoy ours. Keeps us very busy :)

    Go for it.

    I've been stored for 2 months and it's all good. Clean stabil and in suspended animation. Plus it's not registered so makes my decision easy!

    pinetreecat....I love the photos of your car. I'm waiting on ISG to call me back to order my replacement in Granite, sunroof, A8 with SEPIA!!! If I had to put it in suspended animation
    for months it would drive me insane.

    You'll get it,

    I waited so long for the car to get here I actually don't miss driving it. I check the storage once a week, the little C-tel battery gizmo is doing its thing and the California Car Cover is keeping the Granite clean. It's all good. Planning an early spring road trip when the roads clean up.

    Here's one when I took delivery, in a snow Squall.... 20151017_133356.jpg

    I like every color that the Hellcats are available in from the factory, some more than others but I
    like them all....Then, then there's the Granite Crystal...it DOES it for me. I love these cars in this
    color.

    Nice picture pinetreecat. Would you change anything about the car if you were going to order
    a new one today?

    Granite Crystal is one of those colors that looks way better in person! For a non High Impact that would be the one I would choose.;)

    WAY WAY WAY better looking in person. On the lot where I bought my cat there was and still is
    a Granite, M6, sunroof 392 car with the hyper black wheels. I came so close to buying that car
    instead of the cat because the dealer was so high on their ADM.

    I agree Hemi Rocket. The Granite looks much better in person than in most photos.

    I'm ~80 miles south of Baltimore & the weather has been pretty mild. Rain today, but forecasted for ~75* tomorrow which will shatter the 66* record.

    the worst thing about warm weather is the storms that fallow. Like today! I got caught in a nice hell storm with one inch hell, out on the interstate and traffic came to a stop so there was no going to cover!
    So dam glad I took the wife's car.
