Congrats on the car, maybe! I hope it all works out for you, but knowing that hemi orange is a limited color they might try to get a little more out of you.
I used to live in Stevensville, and that's where I'm getting my Challenger from!
Stevensville, hell thats not far at all. What a small damn world,it's funny I had never thought to go on line and fish for chally info and the funny thing is there has been nothing but good people attached to this car from its inception.I was out of the counrty when the dec 3rd dead line hit and to tell you the truth I forgot,but my dealer who was the sales manager and I personally went to talk with him multipule time, and left all my info and a cash deposit .Just shafted me and neglected to call so my car went to some buddy of the owner of the dealership.
This wasnt easy to take and for months now I have had a deposit on one of the first challys at my local dealership to come off the truck.
I know now that whole deal was tainted from the get go and I simply got out of the 09 Rt ,and went to a direct source.
Things in my opinion had a way of working themsleves out and Bob Fredericks will hande this for me. I put confidence in the fact he's a straight shooter and he's not here to sell cars but to help Dodge! What a perfect connection to make for years to come as I buy more product from a dealer that has integrity,and isnt in it to milk you dry.
Im driving 7 hours one way the day of pick up to get the car and will have the wife and kid along in the new Rv,so well make a trip out of it on the way home.Great way to break in the car I feel if not relax once its all over.
It will be fun to remember some day.
Nothing will match the 26 hours straight run home from Miami Fl,To Michigan in my last 73 challenger rallye 340 hi-po.
I only stopped for gas and 2 waffle house stops the whole way home my buddy who tagged along was amazed.It is what had gotten me into a total realization of what Kowalski must have went thru as he was on the road days at a time.That was a treat of a lifetime and you know what that challenger made it without a single issue( 10 tanks of gas ) Ugh!
You have to live it some times and you know what it was one of the best times of my life I was never tired and loving every minute of it.Since then I hate to drive,lol serious!
I got home and slept for 2 days.
I got up twice to actually look outside to see the car and see if it really happened or not.What a good horse she was I was sorry to sell her back a few years ago.
Things look good:
My deposit was recieved today he emailed to confirm that, he has my build spec's and its a go the minute Dodge opens the stable doors and allows orders to be taken for the 09's.Then well talk specifics.
I cant wait its pretty neat hes as excited about this as we all are that was obvious from speaking with him on the phone the other day.Cool guy!
Your lucky you were not here this winter !!! Holy crap record snows off the lakes buried us for months not a single warm day since last November.
The vette had some serious flat spots on the tires this spring I'm due for a change and this car will be perfect so to let the vette sit a bit with 50k on it.Thats a true sign of a horsecrap long winter.FLAT SPOTS!!!
Lets just hope all our dreams come to fruition.Like I stated before this is a once in a lifetime deal here to actually have a car company re-make your most favorite car and do it justice.So many times they get it wrong and well all have to settle,not this time.Keep us updated on your info as it trickles in.
