    So we buy the Hellcat. We decided to wait until the dealership closed to pick up the car so it would be dark outside and we could sneak the car home without a lot of people seeing us. We planned to take it out the first time for a local Mopar show so no reason to tell family and friends about it just yet. Anyway, we sneak the car home without seeing anyone really. We pull it in the garage and notice that it smells warm even though the drive is less than 5 miles. Car safely tucked in the garage. I hop in the truck and go purchase a car cover. We get the car covered and get ready for bed. I must have gone in the garage 10 times before we went to bed....just looking at the car!!!!! :drool: Finally get to bed about midnight...can't sleep. Looked at the clock the last time about 3:30. It was right around 4:45-5am.......SMOKE ALARMS GOING OFF AT FULL VOLUME. Both my wife and I hit the floor running!! We don't look for anything or grab anything EXCEPT the keys to the Hellcat and head straight for the garage!!! Open the door and don't see anything out of the ordinary! Turns out there was dust on the back side of the smoke detectors. After all was settled. We both laughed and joked about only looking out after the Hellcat.

    We will never forget the day we bought it and certainly will never forget the first night we brought it home!!!

    I feel for those that somehow got the shaft from the dealer or the factory. That is not something that I or anyone else on the forum had control over.

    On days I leave the house and don't take my HC, I hide the red key just in case someone breaks in and decides to take her. The first night Kitty came home, I too was looking in on her while she slept in the garage. Just stared at the cats head on the side fender and saying to myself..."finally...I can't believe it is actually mine". Enjoy in good health:)

    I don't know the whole story but there were 900 people that had orders cancelled by the factory. I think several owners have been "confronted" by someone that had multiple cars on order and did not get any of them filled.

    I look at my hellcat every morning when I leave for work and then when I get home I check again on her to make sure it's not a dream
