Huh? Did they run out of extra doors and stop making the Charger?
Try and buy a new narrow body Hellcat Charger.

The cold has set in, but the trims are leaning out. Guess that means I'll have to drive it and figure them out. Already went on four highway runs :)

'22 Challenger Hellcat
...just got off the phone with USAA with good news. The deposit on the Hellcat that I ordered from my local dealer that I ultimately canceled when they started playing games has gone from a temporary refund dispute to permanent. This was after they told me that my deposit was non-refundable and refused to tell me under what conditions it would be, which was insane. They should have known me better than to blink having bought 2 Jeeps from them last year within weeks of each other in addition to several referrals, but they tried to play hardball and lost.

I've been waiting for two months to get this hashed out and now that it is I'll get my 10.5-inch rear wheels and 305 M/Ts ordered from Discount Tire...after I blow the stockers off right in front of the dealership! Good thing they're just across the street, 'cause there ain't gonna be shite left for tread afterwards.

Can't wait to see the ADM they throw on it when they finally get it, I checked their allocation and they're getting ZERO Hellcats in any configuration in '23...fuck 'em!
...I'm THAT guy, again, quoting myself...ANYWAY...

No sooner had my deposit been officially permanently refunded than the dealer called me to tell me that the Hellcat I ordered arrived. Apparently one hand doesn't know what the other is doing over there. It got there Friday morning (complete with my name on the window sticker under "built especially for...") and my salesman let me know. My wife and I discussed buying it anyway and putting it on ice and while crunching the numbers the salesman was breathlessly texting me that the GM needs to know if I want it or not and the tech has to complete the pre-delivery inspection. It was getting later in the day and I was certainly in no position to accommodate them after the bullshit they put me through so I told them that after waiting 3+ months, another couple of days wasn't going to kill either one of us.

We really struggled with the decision about buying it or not...tying up nearly $90K (MSRP/sticker plus TTL) just to sit on it and see if the resale/value increases significantly was something we finally decided it wasn't worth to us. This post may NOT age well but then again we still have our other '22 so we're not Hellcat-less. Being in no particular hurry to let the dealer know one way or the other I waited to hear back from the salesman, which was right on time (yesterday) and told him we weren't interested...there was no response.

What's really funny about the whole thing is that literally, within seconds, not minutes of the car arriving I asked what the exact OTD price was going to be and my salesman responded immediately, yet a few months back he refused to do exactly that and told me "don't worry, we'll figure that out when it gets here". I insisted and he refused to answer which gave me a real bad feeling and prompted me reaching out to Koons and the rest is history. While I have no doubt they'll be able to see it and likely will at well about MSRP, it's a shame the salesman/dealership couldn't have been more straightforward with me; they apparently thought they had me over a barrel. They were mistaken...

Before storing
I usually run around county 15 -20 minutes with the AC cranked ( I read this some place )
Gas up
Air tires up
Hand wash ( wipe down after dust buster )
Park on rubber mats
Trickle charge till full charge & remove charger
Check charge monthly ( I won t leave the charger on )
My garage is 60 all year so I leave the battery in the car
Sometimes I wish I would lift the car off the tires but now & then I need to move it to work in garage
I ve seen many storage combos over the years on here
Some start weekly
I don t think that is a good plan

It comes down to what you feel the best doing. I think the gas had to do with having a metal gas tank and if it is low condensation could rust it. Tanks are plastic now for the most part so that one is out. I try to park my car with the least amount in the tank

Mine will look painfully similar to last year, covered of course. Oil change, oem wheels back on and over inflate junk A/S Pirellis, wash and wax, detail interior and leather clean and treatment. Trickle charger. Roadrunner put away last week.

Downgraded to a Demon for one mile. Then back to normal.

Passed inspection. Still on break in miles so only did light acceleration on the highway. She wants to pull so bad.

Wait, what the hell did I miss?!

Last time I focused on what you were doing was cursing at a transmission and threatening a sale?

Did you buy a new HC?

Sorry about being so utterly disconnected... :oops:
