Steve:  With all those 6s in your VIN could we say that the devil is in the details?

> With a screw-on VIN plate, obviously it is pretty easy to change VINs/body numbers from one car to another.  Unless there is a database of information available that includes the original body number (or engine number) for a given chassis, or the ability to compare one car with another near its chassis number, it isn't likely that a change can be recognized.  However, for BJ8s there is such a database.  During the last 20 years, with the help of several good people, the BJ8 Registry has been able to document original manufacturing details for thousands of cars and currently has an accounting for more than half of the total cars built (8,969).  So, anyone contemplating buying a BJ8 who wants to know whether the car has its original integrity or not should check with the registry.
