My lease was up on the Daytona and I wanted to upgrade and I decided I wanted a Billet Charger. Spent a lot of time searching the country to see what was out there. I kept looking at John Dallain's Billet Charger with black strips and red interior that was for sale on here. I reached out to John and we talked for about an hour and reached a deal on the low mileage car. A few days later I rented a Challenger and drove from Michigan to Virginia about 750 miles on a Saturday. Virginia was just starting to open up and we had a great dinner outside at a restaurant. (funny to get excited to be able eat at a restaurant) Spent a few hours at John's house and he showed me some magazines articles and pics of other cars he has owned over the years. I drove my new car home Sunday morning getting 25 mpg. I have never been that way and the scenery and hilly roads made it a fun drive

Thanks again John

Killer story.
Beautiful car.
So, you didn't give your impression on the difference of the Hellcat.

Believe it or not, I drove the car home in eco mode and never got into it. In normal driving feels just like the Daytona but does pull harder..I have only drove it around a few times but feels great to be in a blower car again. I like what you can do in the SRT mode with adjustability of everything.My goal is to get it close or into the 9's with it. I had a 9 second and 10 second Mustang so I'm not new to fast cars
