2016 M6 White/Sepia - I call it "2NDBYT" because I got lucky enough to get a "second bite at the apple" with this one! Also -there's the double entendre there for anyone who decides to race me again after they get bit the first time - they get bit again by the 'Cat. ALSO - "second bite at the apple" refers to the legal concept of "Double Jeopardy," so as a litigator, I suppose this makes it a "Triple Entendre" for me.

OK - It's all kinda dorky, I know, but I own it. :)

The backstory: I bought this car in January of 2020 and 2 months later the world came to a screeching halt. My firm went 100% remote in March and I almost never drove the car after that. I hated just watching it sit in the driveway and I thought I needed a truck so in August I traded it in on an old LBZ Duramax and the equity that I made on the 'Cat in the 7ish months of owning it nearly paid for the truck! (Covid used car prices were bonkers back then and the dealer didn't really know what they had in the truck).

Fast forward to 2 weeks ago... I see MY Hellcat for sale on a Houston Honda dealer's website/CarGurus for basically the same amount that I got on trade for it 2 years ago (same VIN). I did a little quick research to make sure it hadn't been wrecked in the 2 years and then quickly bought it. I flew down to Houston and drove it back 5 days later (last week).

She is almost EXACTLY the same as she was when I trader her in except the interim owner removed the "D O D G E" from the trunk (which I hate and will soon reinstall).

I rarely regret selling a car (there is always something new on the horizon), but this one left a mark. I think she's a keeper.

Here she is...

For what it's worth, her "twin sister" so to speak was one reason why I regretted selling her. I had this 2016 White/Sepia Jeep GC SRT before I got the 'Cat and they were a match made in heaven. That's why selling her ultimately felt so wrong. :LOL:

2022 Red Eye Challenger Jailbreak. Just some PPF, ceramic, and added some pinstriping on the OEM stripes. Missing my side hellcat emblems for now (satin chrome), waiting for new ones to come in (removed for PPF).

this car is also my summer daily driver.

Haven't had the car long, favorite aspect of the car is easy, the WHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE.

I appreciate the input, but I cannot express to you how little I care about being "disqualified" from a popularity contest on an internet forum. ;)

Meant to say earlier, Mattm400, that is a GREAT shot right there!

Just my opinion, but there’s never been a meaner looking vehicle on the road than a Widebody Hellcat on those steamroller tires at all 4 corners. I even prefer it over the Demon. That low angle shot just nails the look.

Are those stock stripes from the factory and did you have a body shop paint the red lines? Looks awesome man. I’m thinking of doing the same. lol. On my black ‘22 Widebody.

there’s a whole story about how the car ended up like this. Lol.
The car is black with gunmetal stripes. I had the car PPF and they covered up the stripes and I didn’t like the edges. Made an air gap. I wanted the shop to redo it all and put new stripes on top but that would be a lot of rework.
After telling the shop they did the red pinstripes free of charge to cover the air gaps to see if I liked it. It came out good to me so I’m not complaining anymore. Red eye red stripes. 😁

the other good thing is now my stripes are still layered with PPF so they won’t get any damage or rocks can’t chip through the vinyl and damage the paint. Vinyl has some protection but it’s not PPF close.

Glad to hear it worked out for you. A lot of detail shops hire kids with little or no experience that do the work. I have a couple areas on my PPF that’s coming off a little. And a couple air bubbles but it’s not bad. Just shows up more on black cars.
