I've always wanted a good ole American made muscle car. I was a Mustang guy since I was a kid, but I was pulled over to Mopar when the Challengers hit the market. I've never had the change to get my hands on one because life just got in the way.

In 2014 I bought my wife a 2014 Charger R/T Road and Track. It's been a great car. Perfect for her, still looks sharp, and drives like a bat outta hell...

This year was my time, I saved up some cash, ordered me a Scatty on Feb 16, took delivery of it on April 14. I ordered it just as I wanted.

-Manual trans
-Shaker package
-Dynamics package
-Sunroof
-Harmon Kardon system
-Alcantara leather/suede vented seats
-GPS
-Red Brembo calipers
-Drivers convenience package
-Install Mopar Stage 1 lowering springs right after purchase

Has most everything I could want in a muscle car, except for "auto-up" windows. You figure for $53K that would be standard.

It's gonna be my weekend warrior, I've got about 170 miles on it thus far.. I love it, it's a great car, sounds great, rides great, and you definitely feel that 392.

Future plans for the car, install Corsa Sport exhaust with quad chrome tips (that'll probably be a year out at least). I will try that Hellcat light air duct tube to the air box in the near future.

I've finally got my car, it's been 22 years in the making. I look forward to sharing experiences and photos in the future.
Cheers!!!!

Welcome from North Texas. Nice looking ride! The shaker contrasts great w/ that color. Interesting you did not receive the T/A style wheels w/ those option packages (dynamics + shaker).

Those wheels, the 7 point Y-spoke are included in the dynamics package. The car came with the stock SP wheels, 5 point H-spoke, but I had them change out the wheels since I ordered it specifically that way.

I like the ones on the T/A, but I've always wanted those 7 point Y-Spoke wheels. As for the color, the white really pops out.. everything else looks very detailed.. I like the contrast. Anyway.. thanks for welcoming.

Welcome from NC! Nice shaker..and you got the stance right too. I also went with Stage one springs on my R/T and am very happy with them.
