This is driving me crazy. We are now getting Chargers in 2 and 3 per week and I am still i D status. I dont know if I can wait until who knows for my Daytona. I know I am just venting and I am not the only one in this nice boat here, but man this sucks. I keep seeing these cars come in and then I ride in them and sell them to people who just woke up that day and said "hey lets go buy a Charger today" so they do and then they are enjoying their's now and I c]go home to wait some more. THIS SUCKS!!! Thanks for listening :happy:

I'll bet they're not waking up and saying, "I think I'll buy a Charger Daytona today" and just going out and getting one. I've been waiting on a Charger R/T, just the way I want it, since mid-May. It's not a Daytona but I just recently dropped the Protection Group option since DCX might not actually end up building it, or so it seems. As soon as I dropped the option, the order started moving. Have I seen a bunch of Chargers on dealer lots? You bet. Would I have been happy with any of them? Maybe, maybe not. I'd always be wishing I had this or that option that the dealer hadn't picked out for his inventory.

I'll bet you're going to be a LOT happier with your Daytona, just the way you want it, than a lot of impulse shoppers are with their purchases.

My $0.02. YMMV.

As Bluto (John Belushi) famously put it in Animal House...

"My advice to you is to start drinking heavily." :happy:


I'm also playing the waiting game, although I went for an R/T instead of the Daytona. My estimated ship date was scheduled to be today, and as far as I can tell I haven't even gone to D2 status yet. So I guess I have more waiting to do. Reading the posts of the guys who already got their Chargers and are loving them makes the wait that more difficult.

But hey, with every day that passes, that is one day closer we are to finally picking up our new chariots. Hang in there, man!

Maybe not all but taday it happened. Couple walk in and have been on vac. all week. Well just yesterday their a/c goes put in their 97 Bravada w/just over 100k on the clock. Well they have been looking at SUV all afternoon yesterday and thismorning. Well they come in looking at Durango's. So they pick one out they like drive it and as we come inside to write up the deal they see a Silver Steel R/T on the showroom floor. Well they love it but like red o.k. we just got one in yesterday and it has rear dvd, just what they want. Just over 1 hr later its going home w/ them and I am still waiting :cry: :sad: . But your right I would be much happier w/ the Daytona so hurry up and wait. :whistle:

We waited 6 weeks for ours (Daytona) and it was worth it. One of the things my wife really likes was on the window sticker it said-
"This vehicle was especially made for...(insert name)"
That made her feel special : ).

funny stuff..it is the simple things that we enjoy!!! congrats on daytona man.

hey brian i was thinking about the daytona....you could easily drop in the regular shocks and then install the eibach springs and drop her to the ground....esp. with your employee discount. the gomango stock car monster.....that would look very aggressive and i would be too jealous. saw willie today - he told me your are thinking about the srt8 now....you are never gonna get a charger man - too busy hanging on the fence...LMAO
take care and enjoy your vac and happy birthday stud!!!! 30 huh????

I woke up on a Sunday and decided to buy a Charger but had to wait til Mon. Did a little research, found exactly what I wanted loaded, and went straight to the dealer the next day. We were just casually car shopping and when I saw a pic of the charger, said that's it. Done. Never looked at another car.
