    My Hellcat still hasn't gone into production (VON on Jan 12th), but my plates showed up at the DMV. I had to issue them to my wife's car until the Hellcat arrives! She didn't notice them for about a week! She has had a few honks, so some of the locals know what they mean......however, no high school kid has pulled up and asked to race the 4 door Lexus! Overall, my wife has been super cool about it, so I am very lucky! Now if I could just get the car into production...... VZM.IMG_20160323_143312.jpg

    My wife was very supportive because she knows how hard I work and what it means to me. Behind every good man is a. Woman that is twice as good

    LOL! I love it, but it will look much better on the Hellcat! :D Hopefully your wait will not be too much longer ... have you given thought to searching for a Hellcat already at a dealer with the options you want?

    In the state of Nebraska, personalized plates must be tied to a registered car in the state. In order to reserve the "707 HPWR", they had to be issued. They sat at the DMV for over a month and they called me 3 times informing me that I needed to pick them up. When the Hellcat arrives, it's $12.50 to have the plates transferred. Not a big price to ensure I have these plates.

    K here in Ontario you order the plates pay them of course then u can sit on them till you want t put them on or sell them to the highest bidder. But once they go on a vehicle the plates will never be able to go in someone else's name, only exemption is a family member that's it

    If you are still sitting on a VON know that there are 1268 Hellcats listed on CARS.com. There has to be something that matches your Hellcat requirements. Filters for the website give you ability to find just about any combination.

    There are 256 HCs within 500 miles of Omaha, NE

    If she is a wonderful wife than locate one and make a date out of the trip! Fly-buy-drive would make a great adventure for you two!

    Trust me, I am aware that there are several Hellcats readily available. The reason I ordered one is to have my name on the build sheet/window sticker. I don't plan on selling this car. To some, their name on the build isn't a big deal and I can appreciate that. It's something important to me....plus, I have a deposit down on the car that is non refundable. I'm sure if I really push the dealer, I could get it back. At this point, I can continue to wait. The fly-buy-drive idea is very tempting! Thanks for looking though!

    Remember, if you don't have a VIN, then you don't have a car. The dealership can't keep money if they haven't provided anything for it. A VON is just an order and its not a real order until it gets accepted by FCA. I also had a non-refundable deposit on a MY2015, VON issued on 12 Jan 2015 for a Charger HC but after 6 months of no movement and no VIN, I found one issued as dealer stock in GA and got my deposit back from my local VA dealership.

    You sir, have way more patience than me. I got tired of waiting after the first month without a VIN. Found one 600 miles away and got my deposit back. Hope you get a VIN soon.
