: Hello to all from the newest noob! Super Bee wanted!

Just joined this forum last week, and looking forward to some good info and interesting reading/learning. I'm just coming over from the Viper Forum, as I just sold my 1996 Viper to a guy who had it for less than 48 hours before he wrecked it. No insurance on it either; thank goodness for cash; anyway, I'm looking to get either a 2008 or 2009 Super Bee. My first quest at Rothrock Dodge in PA turned into the usual dealer disaster story, so I'm not sure if someone can recommend a reputable dealer that may have one they are looking to move. I would prefer a 2008, as I'm sure I can get a better deal on it vs. a 2009. Drop me a response back if you can provide any leads. I am located in PA..........

Regards Chris.

Good luck, and I would personally go for the 2007 Bee as it is the best looking of them, but it will be more difficult to find one that is perfect since they are older.

i prefer the 08 b5 blue so i bought one. yellow and orange are just to BRIGHT, but the pearl blue is perfect.

Chris,

I love the story about the new owner only getting 48 hours out of the car. Last I heard about 4-5 years ago, the first year Viper is one of the rarest - because most of them have been totaled by people that didn't respect the hp nor how to use it. My former boss bought one second hand that had less than 1 mile on it when the first owner lost control leaving the dealership. He walked back and took a $15k loss. Or the one that LI loaned to a major supplier who let his wife drive it who tried to take a corner in a subdivision at 90 mph. I worked at a facility where we fixed most of the 'mistakes' people made to a Viper.

The way I found my SRT8 was to use the Dodge.com website and browse dealers inventory. I found 3 Plum Crazy SRT8s in a 60 mile radius of where I lived and was able to check all 3 out - and bought what I thought was the newest of the new - and at the best price. You can also check E-Bay - some of the dealers put their stuff there also. Too bad you aren't tight with a local dealer - if you were, they could search the network and tell you exactly how many are out there and where they are.

Dealers around here don't have many SRTs period, let alone Bees.

Since the 09s are only 425 of them, with some sold, they will be hardest. There are plenty of used 07s and 08s for sale, but an internet search is your friend. You may have to be willing to fly somewhere and drive home.

I found my Bee at Kirkwood (now Brandywine) Dodge near Wilmington in February 07.

Monroeville Dodge here in Pittsburgh had an 09 when I was there a few months ago. I don't know if it's still there or not.

Here what I have going so far:

Dealer in MT checking on $33,100 plus free enclosed carrier shipping; car has 66 miles on hand.

Dealer in IL, Sam Lemans Dodge, recommended by SRT8FAST (Steve), will sell car for $33,000, and will ship for free, probably in an open carrier; car has 64 miles.

Waiting for 1st dealer in MT to respond back; should have something firmed up by the end of the week.............

That Bee just sold dude. Unless you are the one that bought it here is the 09 I was telling you about. I am going by that way later on today. If you want pics or something tell me.

Thanks for the link on the 2009, however I am looking for the Super Bee package specifically; not sure how that could have sold, unless someone strolled in off the street and bought it; Rocky was checking with the owner to see if they could do $33,100, however my gut is telling me he will come back with a no-go. I am probably going to go with the one located in IL...........

This one is a Bee. I've seen it. I even took pics of it a while ago. If you feel like searching the craziness that is the Pittsburgh Spotted thread they are in there somewhere. There is only one hemi orange 09 Charger. If the dealership is too dumb to list it as a Bee then that is their problem and just one more piece of why Dodge is failing. :slap: Offer of pics still stands just tell me if you want me to go soon as I'm going to be leaving in the next couple of hours. :D

Amen to that; who knows the fate of some of these franchises; thanks again for the offer, however I think the 09's are a little too high and out of my price range. I feel pretty good about getting a MSRP $45,320 vehicle for $33,000 plus free shipping; not sure I can do much better than that, although the Hemi Orange is sharp as well; thanks again for the offer to check it out............

i couldnt buy one without a nav screen lol. mine is up on ebay. dont really want to sell it and wont for anything less, but everything is for sale for the right price. getting ready to put a 426 stroker in it which will make it pretty much untouchable after that unless you want to give me an extra 15k lol. only reason i put it back is woman wanted to give me 35,000 for it before i added mods and new tires but would only do it through ebay so i was like hmmm i will put it back on with mods added on price. now i have 3 watchers, but they will probably wait until after auction and try and talk me down and i will tell them no!

No problem. Just didn't want you buying a car halfway across the country if there was an acceptable one a couple hours away.

Hi Chris,
Just wondering if you made it in the 08 bee family yet!
