I'm new to these forums, but now that I have my Challenger ordered I guess its time to start posting. Saturday I ordered a blue with white stripes SRT8 392 with an automatic transmission. Can't wait to get my hands on it!

Yeah they said mine was almost complete and they were just doing final trim work or something like that. There is a way to track it with the VIN right?

welcome and congrats. There is a thread going thru here tonight saying it can tell you how to track it but I didn't look at it. Resume Speed is a moderator on here and if anyone can help you track he can.

How did you just order the other day. Order blanks been closed for a long time now on the 392 IE. Did you order from dealer with one on the way.?:scratchhead:

Landers McLarty Dodge in Bessemer, Alabama has an allotment to order two IEs. He has ordered one for dealer stock and has not yet ordered his second. This is being saved for a customer to order. I am sure there are a few other dealers out there that did not order their full allotment either. That is the only way you can still order one from the dealership.
According to Rammjeger's comment that his is almost complete, it seems that he took one that the dealer had ordered for his stock.

I figured they were ones that dealer's had ordered for stock but as long as alot guys have been waiting it seems like new orders should come last. Iknow they can't seperate them like that.

Yeah Hemi420 is right. The dealer had already ordered the car for dealer stock. They had actually ordered 2, one white and one blue. The white one was already sold, and the blue one wasn't. The guy at the dealership actually thought they had only ordered one, but he told me he would check just in case. He disappeared for about 20 minutes and finally came back with a printout with a VIN and details on the car. So the blue one had all the options that I wanted so I bought it :) According to the dealer the car was in the "body shop". Anyone know what that means and how long it usually takes after that?

From what I've read if that meens stripeing it takes a week and another week to get to the dealer. I'ld be curious to see what happens if you try that link.

Yep, I'll dig up my VIN tomorrow and try out that link. They did mention something about putting the stripes on at the body shop. Does anyone know if the stripes are painted on or are they decals? I'm also curious what the ratio of white to blue cars is. Is it 50/50 or are there more of one or the other.

Roughly 50/50 and the stripes are vinyl stripes.

Who are you buying your car from?

That's kind of ... "aggravating" that a car without a buyer until 1/15 was built before a car with a deposit dating back to 11/9. You would think sold cars would take priority over unsold cars. :indifferent: Ahh well I guess I have to go back to the patient waiting and congrats. :D

Yeah sorry to cause you aggravation :) From what I understand according to this article the first one rolled off the assembly line only on the 7th of January:

2011 Dodge Challenger rolls off the production line with a party | Red Letter Dodge

So they have only been in production for 11 days. I don't know how they prioritize them, but I assume maybe they send a few to each state. I'm getting mine from Landmark Dodge in Morrow, GA. Landmark is one of the biggest Dodge dealerships in the south, so maybe they pulled some strings to get theirs earlier? Either way, I still don't have it in my hands, and its not even on the train yet, so I guess it will still be a while yet :)

That was just the party equivilent of a "grand opening". :) The first forum IE built was on 12/21.

It's not a huge deal to me though for 3 more weeks or so. Once it starts to warm up then angry phone calls will be made. :smokin:
