How do I get the secret handshake

5903 33
OK, I wanted a Hellcat since I first heard about them. Backed off because I'm so turned off by typical dealer sales tactics on 'vehicles of interest'.

I know there are some decent dealers out there and I found and spoke to a few local ones. Then I heard about Bob Frederick. I got some very positive feedback on Bob from a couple of his past/current customers.

I was on the fence for several days about my options. I emailed Bob a few times (super timely and informative responses). I actually spoke with him today and that sealed the deal. He is a rare breed.

I've officially ordered my Hellcat. I"m at the back of the line waiting patiently LOL. So who do I contact for that secret handshake?

Did you get a number as far as how many people are ahead of you on the list? It would put to bed some of the arguments I've seen here between a couple factions of people.

I ordered from Bob at MSRP on 9/17/14 and sat in BX hell for months. I was told at the second allocation that my VON would get some action in the Spring of 2015. Way too long for me so I canceled my order with him and found one in stock at another dealer for $4K over. Bob was great and refunded my deposit the next day. Although he is connected, it doesn't get you a Cat quickly.

Welcome to the site and the waiting game.

It would be interesting to know the number of buyers in line before you and the wait time that you are looking at.

Thanks,

Turnerz

I'm not even suppose to be telling you this but, its more of a ham boning dance, mixed with baseball signals, and ends with a head nod!

I don't think that ordering from Bob will get me a car any quicker. I ordered from Bob because based on what I've heard about him and my converstations with him (via email and phone) he is a stand-up, honest car guy that treats people with respect.

I despise old school scumbag dealers and their tactics. I don't care if you are buying a Ford Focus or a Ferrari. You shouldn't be treated like slime.
