I am ordering mine in the morning. Since I am out of state it is taking a little longer. I am hoping to have mine in about a month or so.

Still waiting for my regular plates to come in...

...but I'm having a hard time coming up with something creative or unique for my personalized plate. NJ only allows 7 characters, less if you go with one of the special plates (Animal Friendly, Save the USS New Jersey, Shore to Please, etc). I want "DRKJEDI" as a reference to my love of STAR WARS, but my wife and 12-year old think that's too geeky. So far she has suggested SKYHIGH, TRU LUV, HOT SKY, GRAYSKY, and BLUESKY (in reference to Mr. Blue Sky from one of my favorite bands, ELO). None of those really strike me, so I'm still wracking the brain.

I know this is a dumb question...but how do we get a custom plate? Are you talking about the license plate in the back? Or front? In Oklahoma we don't have to have both.

Custom plates...you go to the agency that you get your car plates from and ask if you can get a personalized plate, or custom plate. In Michigan it's the Secretary of State's office, other places it's the Dept. of Motor Vehicles, etc. Most States charge an extra fee each year for the use of a special plate, instead of just the normal one you would be assigned. Just ask, or go online to your State to check the details on how to order one.

I know Virginia has a ton of plates (many of which blow my mind that they exist) but one thing they don't have that you OK peeps get to enjoy are colored plates (http://www.oktax.state.ok.us/sp7.html) -- I would love a static gray plate to match my Graphite Silver Sky... oh well.

I listed my plate several months ago..two were available at the DMV (California), by the time I got around to ordering (couple of days) they had already been snatched up - may be coincidence, but I think not. So I suggest if you have something special keep it to yourself (unless you have the plate already)

What plate where you loooking at? Design and tag? Too bad cali doesn't have more options I looked at them and think I'll just stick with a random plate. Even if I did have something "special" in mind I don't know that it would be worth it on the available plates.

You order the vanity plate from the DMV, takes like 4-6 months to get it. I am trying to get creative with my tag on the red-sky. We get 7 letters, have not come up with to much yet. But then again I have lots of time to think about it!!!!

In Delaware, we have a black plate with white numbers that is available at no extra charge (regular plate is blue with gold lettering/numbers). I intend on getting that plate for my Silver Graphite Sky.

I think it's strange that you can't pick up your personalized plate until you have a car to put it on! In Ontario you order the plate and they mail it to you. When it comes in you (or your dealer) simply brings it in to the Ministry and they associate it with a vehicle. I have SUMR SKY in my office and it will stay there until my car comes in.

Yeah me too! I will try to place an order before this week is up. I liked some of the ideas posted. I am still trying to be creative myself. I will let you know so that way if you ever see me in OKC and you read my tag, you'll know its me.:thumbs: :lol:
