A friend of mine brought over a printout of a complete breakdown of the VIN code. It was for every b-body anf what every digit meant. I was wondering if anyone had the link. Thanks.

thirdgen.org has a breakdown of the vin's the number 7 in the eighth place means it is a 5.7 liter for 91 to 93 but bear in mind that thirdgen is for camaro,firebird,transams,and berlinetta owners only but that site is also very useful for info

why is it that the letter 'E' proceeds and that means that it is a 305 5.0L. Now I am baffled. My wagon has a 305 and it has an E7 and so does my sedan, but the seadn has a larger radiator than the wagon...i am way confuzzed.

Also, what is up with my car being built in Iwata, Japan...seems like a waist of money on GM's part...
