I would be totally happy with a black auto hellcat to commute in.

So I made an offer on a Hellcat. 2016 Challenger in Plum Crazy with the 6 speed manual and the brass money wheels. Hood is painted.

If they can get close to the numbers I have seen online then its a deal.

Let me know how it goes. Rather do a charger hellcat though.

Well that was a bust. 689 with 5k down plus tax. Also insurance was triple the viper for a daily.

Stopped at subaru on the way home and leased an STI in WR blue in a limited with the small wing for under 400$ a month and minimal drive offs. Wife really likes the STI so she may end up with it in a year or so. Like it though.

Got home. FYI I got a monster of a deal on this thing. Like I should never tell a soul. Like I could sell it right now and make money sort of deal. Its not a hellcat but its a lot more under the radar and more importantly it fits in the garage and does not cost 255$ a month to insure. Kind of disapointed I could not get it with the big wing in the limited in WE blue. I am sure you can order it that way but every single limited had the little wing in town.

This thing STICKS on off-ramps, stereo is fantastic and it does not shoot fire or try and burn me or cause traffic accidents like the Viper. Wants to cruise at 78mph on the freeway though and had to use cruise control to get it to be happy at 65.

Cobb tune will happen soon, but nothing else. Car is plenty fast. Also compared to the American stuff you can actually see out of a WRX. Its like an old Acura legend it has that good of greenhouse.

Plus its the last gasp of the EJ25.

Nice purchase. I actually like them without the big wing.

Little wing isn't growing on me as well. Did a full paint correction this morning and used up he last of my three year ceramic coating that I won at an auction a while back. So not a swirl on the car and looks much better now.
