xxxxxx = six digit vin sequence from that assembly plant

That way all you have to do is look to that year/plant/sequence and it tells which car it went in. Traceable if stolen.

In the car registration VIN the engine code is the 5th postion, a letter

example 8R02Jxxxxxx

68, R=SanJose, body (different than door tag codes), J=engine code, sequence vin.
