i'm just curious about this. does anyone know what part of the vehicle the VIN actually corresponds to? for example, take some of the more extreme offroad rigs that are still street legal. body panels chopped or removed, axles, tranny, engine, suspension, tires, etc. everything else changes, but the VIN stays the same. in some cases it's really a matter of pulling the VIN off the old pieces and attaching it to the new creation. at that point, what the heck is it identifying? i mentioned this to a few friends (over more than a few drinks) and they agree it seems odd. anyone on here agree?
