Fellow Canadian's Who Ordered a Hellcat

I was just wondering if anyone has an update on the status of their HC who got a VON when ordered? I ordered July 23 when my dealer call and said he was able to place an order. I called my dealer on Friday and he said no change in status still in B something status. Dealer has been family owned for over 55 years and has a Five Star Status (highest quality service rating awarded by Chrysler Canada), got an email from area rep and said they were going to build 3 HC per month for western Canada with first ones going to Vancouver and with the amount of orders for HC it might take 3 years to get one.I talked to the dealer in Ontario where I bought my Yellow Jacket and said they would get one HC but it would be about a month before they could option it, and he said they would build 50 HC for Ontario. If anyone would like to add to this, true or false, I would appreciate it.

Well I ordered in July and still in BX status so I decided to go to a few other dealerships and boy are some crazy.

Langley Dodge, Willowbrook Dodge and Carter Dodge all wanted way over MSRP, heck two of them wanted 5,000 over MSRO just for the 392 SRT.

If things don't change I'm going to look for a different ride entirely and give up on Dodge. I find most of the dealerships to be very slimy.

Not a very good experiance so far.
Yes the lower mainland dealers are d-bags. I went through it in 08-09 buying my SRT. I'm surprised at Carter tho, they and Destination in North Van were two of the better ones. PM me I can talk to the right person at Carter.

Willowbrook and Langley are well known high priced dealers, even on regular cars and trucks. Coquitlam tried to tell me in 2009 that only RTs came in 6 speed and they would graciously sell me a 6 spd RT at SRT price. They would not look up on the computer a 6spd SRT and laughed at me when I told them they were wrong- unbelievable but true.
How many people with 95k cash wants to buy a challenger...

No banks will finance 30k over MSRP
And there's the rub. It is only about a 3 month window when they can have this cash grab. By April sticker price will be the norm I think.
