Compnine experiences

I entered the VINs from a few of my Canadian Firebirds and got model number and build dates known - but got the RPOs. Is this an American conspiracy because Canada gets the RPOs from VINs at the dealer?

Seriously, I understand from Okfoz on Thirdgen.org that excluding the Canadian car is intentional (may be because GM Canada has the database). The problem is the % vs RPO. So, when my GTAs are of less that 378, that number is between T/A and GTAs. S, what is the actual number.

Re: Compnine experiences

compnine.com

Anyway, in addition to lots of assembly diagrams, it will apparently also tell you how rare your car is (although I believe the entire database is still being populated).

Re: Compnine experiences

No, it's just hit and miss. They are continuously expanding the database, check back in a week or so and you'll probably find the VIN there. It seems cars older than 1990 are the files that are missing the most. Just have to keep trying.

Great site, I love it! No more phoning the dealer for RPO breakdowns!
