    Terry, is it possible to lease a hellcat or whatever it is you want to buy? Even if it was for a few months like say next May to sept, then you might find that its not your cup of tea, or u might love it. At least you wouldn't lose a ton of $$ in depreciation, if u bought it, then decided its not right for you.

    2017 Challenger Hellcat, Yellow Jacket Exterior, Purchased Dec. 5th 2017
    Hello [​IMG] [​IMG],

    After the last go around I had that some of you read about in the, (Black Listed Dealer) thread a few days ago.
    Click on link below,
    http://www.hellcat.org/threads/black-list-of-dealers.13662/page-2#post-2607689

    It was suggested that I not give up and get an attitude.
    Well, I damn sure had (is the key word) a "Negative" Attitude but it had nothing to do with the Hellcat cars.
    That included several of my closer buddies and my wife of plus 35-years.
    So, I got right back on the computer Researching Challenger Hellcats.

    Here is what finally did take place with me Searching on the internet using all the different Search Engines like, Car Gurus, Cars.com, Autotrader, etc.
    Well I never really went beyond the 2016 Challenger Hellcats within 500-Miles of my Zip-Code.
    I did look a few times in the past at the 2017 Challenger Hellcats but the pricing was BEYOND this Fellow's Budget.
    (With the existing 2008 Bullitt Mustang at Gateway Classic Cars in Nashville on Consignment)
    Guys, not one of the Rich & Famous on this end I can assure you fellows & Linda.
    (Linda I read what you have to say so when I say, fellows, I have Not-Over-Looked-You).

    Well here is what I did do the other evening as I changed my Searching to the 2017 Challenger Hellcats.
    As I went through the different search engines I was on one and as I rolled the pages down guess what I found ???
    A 2017 New, Yellow Jacket Exterior, Black Interior, A8, with Sunroof the exact options I wanted !!!
    I was thankful it did not have the Summer Performance Tires, Satin Finish Hood.
    I'm not racing it so the All Season Tires are exactly what in my case I really wanted.
    Also, I'm going to have the Hood Wrapped in the Satin Finish so it would be crazy to pay the $1,995.00 and then pay to have it Wrapped to Protect the Factory Finish.
    This way I do it from the Beginning the way I want it.

    Oh, for those that enjoy reading how transactions go when you're dealing with a Professional Salesman and Management;
    It took like maybe 30-Minutes from Start-to-Finish for this Transaction.
    Then of course following up with sending information for acquiring the loan etc.
    BTW, I got a Lower-Rate from the Dealer than my own, Bank-of-America that we have been with for plus 40 yrs.
    The agreement was they would sell the Challenger Hellcat to me for my Bid if I would commit to letting them run the Loan.
    They also use Bank-of-America ...........
    The salesman I'm working with is CJ and he is definitely on Top of His Game, guys.
    Let me share you an example:
    I mentioned to him I'd like to see some pictures of it as it sat right now at the dealership.
    He had my cell phone # of course.
    Minutes after the transaction had taken place my Cell Phone, Lit-Up !!!
    He did not wait until the next day, he went outside and did it right then and they were now Closed.
    (I called 17-Minutes before they Closed)
    There was not one single thing that I asked CJ about or to do that it was not done. [​IMG]
    The reason I chose to call them even though I saw they were almost ready to close is I was NOT going to take any chances on this one getting away.
    It is one of my All-Time-Favorite colors.
    I had a S/C Saleen in it, Custom ordered Vette in it, Audi S-4 Custom ordered in it as some immediate examples.
    And after talking with CJ it was what guys (and Linda) ???
    Brand New, Non-Molested, with a whopping 33-Miles and Approximately 5-months old.

    I got Cathy (Wife) to come over and look at it and she said, perfect, see it was worth waiting.
    As some of the people said to you, the other Dealership & New Hellcat Owner did you a Favor Terry you'll find the one you really want.

    So, people, sometimes things do work out for us and this is an example of that very thing.
    That's why I'm taking the time to share all this with you.
    Especially the ones of you like me that are doing your Research for the Right Hellcat !!!

    Time for the pictures that were sent to me.
    Before that I almost forgot one very important thing to be sure to mention.

    I have a very close friend in Dublin, Ohio which as it turned out is like a 25-minute drive to Bob-Caldwell Chrysler.
    She, Mickey (Mick) left work and actually went over and met CJ and checked out the Hellcat for me yesterday.
    She just happens to be the President of UNIVENTURE an International Company with multiple locations.
    So for her to just jump up and go do this for me is actually a (Very-Big-Deal).
    And also took pictures that will be below along with CJ's pictures from the night before.
    Mickey called me and said the Hellcat is Bad-Ass for sure as she is a Car Gal .........
    I'm glad I remembered to mention this for a couple of reasons.

    1st of course to mention that Mickey was nice enough to do that and also took her Daughter with her.
    (Her Daughter works for Univenture)

    The other reason is to say to you that like I'm doing will maybe purchase from Out-of-State ???
    Try your best to locate someone you can Trust to go check it out in person for you.
    Then you can know that all is as it's supposed to be before you drive or fly to another State.
    Here are a lot of pictures and in my case I don't mind sharing even the Purchase Agreement.
    I'm doing that so you that are still Searching can see Facts {Not-Opinions} guys.

    I could NOT locate a Bright Yellow Hellcat T-Shirt on such short notice but this will do. LOL !!!

    CJ guys took these at night for me and they were already CLOSED !!!
    (He actually took a lot more pictures but they were very much like the ones above I posted)

    Yes, these are Definitely going to be installed once I get it back home and Registered.
    Also the, Satin-Finish, Wrapped Hood.

    [​IMG]

    I consider myself a very-very Lucky fellow guys & Linda.
    At 72-yrs old this will more than likely be my last, Performance Machine !!!

    I hope the information above might possibly help those still Researching and those that will be in the future.

    So now that you bought a Dodge, does that mean you'll leave this forum and never come back as long as you own that yellow boat?

    They will definitely will be now that I'm on them. LOL !!!

    Thank-You Sir. :D

    Gabe, You wish ..... LOL !!!

    Friday I will know but everything is already done it's just me signing the Official Contract.
    I'm looking to get in and out of that dealership quick.
    I have a long trip to get back home and don't want to do it in the dark if possible.
    My insurance company has even done their thing with the Dodge Dealership already.

    Earl,

    Well my man there's one thing for sure this will be a 1st for this guy.
    Never owned any Challenger must less a Hemi Hellcat.
    It will be an easy drive back for the most part as I need to Break-it-In.
    So I'll chill and just take the necessary time that it takes to do it correctly.

    Have a nice Christmas Holiday coming up buddy.

    Gabe,

    I am so use to you so I know that there is no damn way you could have the hard on for me that you post. :funnypost:

    So, it's all good on this end.

    Have a nice Christmas coming up.

    T.

    Terry, congrats on your new Challenger/Hellcat.. Although i hate to see you part with the Bullitt/Mustang, I can certainly understand your reasoning for wanting to enjoy something new and different from a performance/muscle car.. Anyway hope you'll enjoy the Hellcat for many great years to come :biggrin:

    Thank goodness No-Snow for Friday.

    Yes I will be watching how I drive it until I put the Break-in-Miles on it.

    Thanks my man.
    Well as I have posted I'm not parting with the Bullitt because I don't dtill like it as I certainly do.

    It's simply either now or never to make this change so I'm in. :highfive:

    Going to be a Longgggggggggg day tomorrow.

    Terry
