Well... I got the VIN#-1G1BL52W2TR174997. The 8th digit is a W. I don't see an P's. So, stay away from it them. I would be going from my Roadmaster, which is pretty quick. What is the ratings for a L-99? How dissapointed would I be(performance wise)? Also, does anyone have a current CARFAX account where they could run the number for me? I've only seen a picture of it in the new Auto Mart. 81,000 miles, Beige w/matching leather, alm. wheels, white walls, all power equipment, etc.. Looks like an old man's car. They advertise it at $136.84/month w/ no money down.

You're right; the 8th digit is P for LT1. I'd sure stay away from it!

WOW! Hey, thank you VERY much VIN Guy. Could you please do me one favor? Could you run my VIN because I know that it's been repaired before but the report I got (I think it was CARFAX) was VERY vague and didn't even mention anything about a wreck. All it did was told me that it's a good title. The VIN is 1G4BT52P8SR421062. Thank you again.
