Official Yellow Jacket Owners Thread!

There are enough of us floating around with Yellow Jackets on order now that we should start our own thread!

This will be the place to post your pics when you finally take delivery on your Yellow Jacket in just a few short weeks.

For now, introduce yourself, tell us where you're from, how you've optioned out your Yellow Jacket, what upgrades you are planning, and maybe other cars in your fleet. I'll go first.

I'm from Evansville, IN. Ordered a 6-spd, upgraded tires, NO sunroof, 730N w/ Premium Sound, Mopar Appearance package. My Speedlogix catch can is also on its way (thanks Shawn!) and skip shift eliminator. Eventually I want to get the Speedlogix CAI, Zoomers exhaust (maybe, I have to hear it in person first), and the back-up camera. Before I even drive off the lot I'm going to have them activate the DRLs and Navigation input while driving.

Other cars I own: '05 Audi A6 and '01 Nissan Pathfinder. This will be my first Mopar!

I'm from STL and I have a 6 spd manual on order with the sunroof (to keep the wife happy), upgraded 730N package, appearance package, and the non-3 seasons tires (can't remember the package number).
Well I plan on adding the oil catch can if it comes in yellow. I am thinking about just getting the resonators cut off and putting a stainless straight pipe in its place. I plan on getting strut braces for the front and back and hopefully get them painted yellow. I also plan on getting the windows tinted before I pick the car up from the dealer. I also plan on doing some track days with this car.

This will be my 4th Mopar but first Muscle car. I also own 07 Dodge Ram and 09 Dodge Journey.

Congrats to all you lucky gays that have ordered your Yellow Jacket Challengers. Just one question. Will your Y/J come with the black strip going down the hood? That strip gives the car a totaly different look. It’s unique and sets it apart from other 392s Dodge - Build My Own - Colors

You know, I never noticed that before. That stripe down the hood did not appear in any of the publicity photos, nor on the vehicles at the L.A. or Detroit Auto Shows (they could have been the same car though). I guess we'll find out when the first one gets delivered to one of us!

How do you like the 350 vs the SRT8? I was looking at a V6 Genesis Coupe before the Challenger. No comparison, obviously. But that 500 hp is nothing to sneeze at. And in a smaller, lighter car.
