    Your on the right site :D

    here ya go...
    here is the way to read VIN plates
    for example:
    6H8VXV35F1L123456 Here goes:
    6H8 is World manufacturer identifier (6H8 is holden)
    VX is model code
    X is luxury model (K=executive,L=berlina,X=calais)
    35 is body style code (69=wagon,35=wagon)
    F is engine code(A=3800 V6,F=Gen 3 V8, R=3800 V6 supercharged)
    1 is model year code:1=2001,2=2002 etc
    L123456 is the sequential production number, also called Holden 'tag' number

    He could look up that list but it doesn't have VG utes in it, nor explain any of the details.

    6H8VGK80HML470283
    Holden (6H8),
    VG ute(VG),
    base model(K),
    2 door utility body(80),
    V6 engine (H), this is also the 2nd letter of the engine number.
    model year of 1991(M) model year means it was built between 1/9/90 & 31/8/91),
    L is the Elizabeth (SA) production line,
    and the last 6 is the sequential production serial number.

    So what happens now if some Retard wants to go a Police station and cause you a world of head aches by reporting that VIN as STOLEN?

    At the very least, you will be arrested next time you are done for a Randon RBT! Now you have publicly advertised your VIN, you leave yourself open to abuse!

    Everyone else, please do not advertise your VIN on a public web site! There is nothing stopping Retards from reporting your VIN as stolen, annonymously, then you might loose your house, your kids, etc

    I'm thinking it's like the Credit Reporting system, no liability - but able to get you arrested.

    Someone please correct me if I am wrong!

    A VIN number is registered to a name (check you Certificate of Rego). A quick look at that would sort out who owns it. Not to mention if they check the car, every VIN number is stamped by a robot into a solid peice of chassis that is not replacable (ie the firewall), if you've managed to scratch that off, weld a plate over it and restamp it in such precision that it could not be noticed, then I raise my glass to you.

    A VIN number is not really impossible to steal, but it is impossible to duplicate it onto another vehicle, nor is it of any use to anyone. It merely ID's the vehicle for rego purposes and for parts n stuff.

    a quick check by the police would see he owns the car?? dont think he'll get arrested...or lose his house and kids

    edit: also the vin is displayed on the windshield, so anyone can walk up and see it..

    VS never had the VIN stamped into the actual body like the later models did (VT~VF) in the floor pan under the drivers side carpet.

    VS only had the ally plate visible at the bottom of the LHS windscreen reveal window and also on a tag revetted to the body prior to paint shop underneath the LH headlight. Also the VIN appears on the compliance plate that's attached to the firewall.
