    How long does it take to get them? Well, they can take up to 4 weeks. But sometimes they take over a month. Sometimes they are really fast and get here in 3 days, sometimes they are slow and take 2 months. They are really finicky.

    They probably found that warrant for you.
    I would be careful answering the door from now on.

    Depends on how many Hawkeyes are available to make them? I guess 4 weeks does sound like a long time.

    I just get satisfaction knowing that all those Hawkeye football players are just getting more and more pissed for every Cyclone plate they make.


    EDIT: ^^^He beat me to it^^^

    Was your plates something intelligent and witty? If so the thug hawk prison boys might not be quick enough to figure it out so they keep having to redo them and with 2 plate quota the hawks have, they can add up.

    Keep it simple and it might speed them up.

    Very much depends on where you bought the vehicle. Sometimes these places keep your money and dont pay the registration until you turn them in - I've seen it happen more than once. Call the DOT and find out the status. Those that don't pay right away are typically crooked.

    We got ours last summer and they were in very quickly. I'd guess they're busier with 'em this time of year.

    I got them 2 different times. One was about 6 -8 weeks and the last was 2-3 weeks.

    Must only make the plates every so often.
