I eMailed the Internet Manager of my local dealer. I received a call from them yesterday (but didn't realize it since my cell was in the car) saying they didn't have a waiting list. I was asked to give them a call (I forget the guys name). I don't know what they did for the Challenger, but it sounded like he was willing to discuss my doing whatever it is others did for the Challenger before it was officially for order/release.
I'll have to give them a call tomorrow I guess.
