Sublime/A8/Laguna Black leather/summer tires/Audio upgrade.
Purchased 2-2-15 at Rouen Dodge, Woodsville Ohio.
Story goes that someone ordered this car with a M6, car arrived with an auto........guy says he don't want it now. The dealer says they called dodge & dodge said too bad keep it....lol.
My guess is the dealer hit the wrong button when ordering. Anyway, I saw it on autotrader along with a slew of other Hellcats within a 200 mile radius of me. This dealer was the only one that actually had it though, the rest were either baiting or lying. I drove 2 hours to see it & when I saw it through the window in the showroom I knew I was doomed....
MSRP was 65,870. When I got there they informed me of the 10K market adjustment.....I informed them that I wasn't interested. They said "how about a 5K market adjustment", I declined again and was fully prepared to walk. We settled on 2K over MSRP. I will fully admit to paying more than its worth but I couldn't let it slip, everything I wanted and no waiting involved.
I left the dealership at 10:30PM, drove it 8 miles on snowy roads till I hit the turnpike & had most of the drivers laguna leather seat sucked up tight....LOL, surprised i didn't stroke out! Most of the freeways were clear from then on but I couldn't stretch its legs much. It got me and my 8 year old son home no problem though. It was a very memorable trip for us, great times. Got home at 12:30AM, (school night/work night mind you) parked the car, got out to open my garage door which was frozen.......broke the garage door.........cleared a spot for the car and proceeded to get 100% friggin STUCK 10 feet from getting in....LOL. Thankfully my neighbor heard all the "noise" & came to my rescue. A little shoveling & finesse got the "cat" safely in its box.
Wont forget that night EVER....best thing ive ever blown this much money on that didn't disappear up my nose.
Its early February in Ohio & my garage is a mess, but here is a pic
I wasn't around for the first Hemi era.......im not missing this one.
