This Hellcat is my very first Dodge in 20 years. Any other first time buyers on this forum?

My first car was a 72 Duster 340 4sp bought in 1984. Ended up 440 tunnel ram, 727 w/5500 stall, brake, 14x33 slicks, tubbed, etc....still street legal. Sold in 2001. Had a 69 Dart a couple years ago. Had a 451 stroker, tubbed, 727 w /4000 stall and brake. Now the HC. Love the HC. I don't consider it as "cool" as the old iron.....but it's sooooo much nicer to drive!

I’m not sure about the question? Is it how many Hellcat’s or how many Dodge’s? I’m a first time Hellcat owner but how many Hellcat’s do you think I could afford besides the one I bought in 2016? I do have a 2013 Daytona Charger bought new (been a really good car) and a 2001 Ram 2500 Cummins. Otherwise have always had a Plymouth musclecar every day of my life since 1969. The new Dodge musclecars are better in every way than the musclecars ever were back in the day.

My first Dodge and high horsepower vehicle. I have had a Chrysler 300S in the past, but it doesn't even compare to the hellcat.

My first car was a '94 Honda Accord, salvage title (former rental), with 3 different paint jobs and always leaking fluids. Came from a Honda/Toyota/Lexus family. I broke the mold [wiggle]

My first new Dodge was my 2004 HD Hemi (hence the most unoriginal user name ever).

In November of 2011 I traded up for a 2012 Power Wagon

In October of 2017 I added a leftover 2016 Challenger Hellcat to the fleet.

So far the Hellcat is the only stock vehicle I have. It’s hard to imagine needing more HP with this car.

I just meant Dodge in general.

I'm a new owner and this is my first Dodge product. I've had a few fun cars but this is definitely the most powerful. Its been awhile since I've had a muscle car and I felt it was time. Loving it so far!

My HC is the first Dodge and I will never turn back. Its been 3+ yrs of smiles and giddiness each time I get behind the wheel. Previously had 3 different generations of Mitsu Eclipse and a 98 Jeep GC Laredo. I've transitioned through my own Fast & Furious phase from Brian to Dom... LOL.

First HC but not my first Mopar. Also not the fastest vehicle I've owned either. And TBH, I'm a fan of anything fast.

My first Dodge was a '18 Hellcat. Now I'm into my second Dodge; '19 Hellcat RedEye. Many years ago my first venture into Mopar territory was a '62 Plymouth Valiant. Loved that car with my aftermarket 8-track tape player.:)

I almost had a Dodge before buying the Hellcat.
My 2010 Ram had a mix of Dodge and Ram on it, having been made right as the name change went into effect.

Never owned a MOPAR before my Demon. And what a way to jump in. The car is insanely fast but also insanely comfortable and easy to drive. Has an actual backseat and trunk. Shocking! I always did appreciate the oldschool craziness that were Hemi A and B bodies...esp in those high impact colors. It's why I ordered mine in B5/Demonic Red (even though that was not an advertised combo) :)

Had a Dodge Dart in high school, one good friend had a valiant shift on the column, other good high school buddy had a 73 road runner we totaled. Had a terrible Ram. Worst truck I ever had. This critter is like being on LSD from the 70s and twice as fast and able to fall asleep in it. Before I was a vette person and no comparison. Idiot next door, 2018 ZO6 owner, keeps asking me where my car is. He should be careful of his bat mobile mouth.
