that's not the only place VIN is stamped
I could think of at least one more place where you see VIN clearly, plus other places which can be traced as well. Don't do it. If you get stopped and police gets suspesious and if they remember those cars a quick glance will raise a red flag FAST. I'm not gonna go into the details but that's one of the reasons my '89 was recovered as it was registered as a '90.
You are asking for trouble there buddy.
its either cast or stickered on the engine and tranny seperately, also stickered in the drive door or door frame. any other places? you should really watch the original gone in 60 seconds by halicki much better than the new one
I basically have an awesome condition 90 (great drivetrain, interior and body) but it will have a tough time passing the idle HC emissions testings where I'm thinking of moving to. As an 87 though it would have no problems.
I guess I'll give this some further thought. It's just such a sweet ride I'd hate to be stuck not being able to insure it due to strict emissions numbers.
dont do it, period. is it worth getting arrested and having it on your record? I bought a '87 IROC back in '98 from some grandma in long island, to make the long story short got stopped 4 months later cops took the car and arrested me, car was stolen and re-tagged, it was really an '88 and thank god i wasnt the first owner since it got stolen, so i got out of it without getting booked...they kept the car though, and i never got the $ back [img]graemlins/4.gif[/img]
Yeah, you're right. I guess I'll start doing some searching on high HC and see if there is something I've overlooked. It's funny because I've taken the car through in need of a tune-up and the HC is way over (as in 300, when the limit here is 220). After a tune-up it is always just around 100. That's fine for here in WA but won't cut it in BC where the limit keeps going down and is currently 78.
Thanks for the advice though!

Due to what I went through I won't reveal other places where one can read the VIN
