Glad to see it's back. I've been wanting to run my VIN forever. I thought my wagon was odd since i have no rear defroster (aftermarket) & manual mirrors, as most RMs have pwr every thing.

Does this mean I have a 1 of 1 car??

I suspect that due to the sheer number of options, most cars are going to be 'rare'. My OCC is 1 of 1 with only 4 having at least as many options according to the site. The Camel interior wasn't real popular as only 421/4,347 had it.

Wish that site worked for the 80s G-bodies as it would be great to get this info on the Turbo Buicks.

Guys, keep in mind that there are RPO codes for production weeks. That's where most of the "rarity" comes from. They might have made 4 or 5 wagons in your combo that WEEK, making Compnine think it's rare.


It's more for statistical info than anything. Or checking out a car with a worn SPID to make sure you get the gears you want. Smile

PostSubject: Info about Compnine   Fri Apr 20, 2012 4:43 pm

I received a email from the owner of www.compnine.com today and would like to pass on part of that email to the forum.
I hope we can all enjoy the free information that Jason has given us access to.
Part of the email is as follows:

The VIN decoder is certainly of the most daily use for businesses, but that's not to imply the casual user has been discounted or somehow set aside. Quite the contrary, unless you're doing a significant number of weekly searches the "demo" on the site is designed to be enough for most individuals. It's typically set to two free searches a day, and it resets at the end of a each day. Right now it's set to TEN free searches daily and will stay that way for a while. The goal is to allow regular vehicle owners the opportunity to run all of the vehicles they own, and some of the ones they may be considering purchasing, all for free. If you need to do some extensive searching, or your business relies on the information, accounts start at just $5 for 50 monthly searches with no daily limits.

Will this tell you every option your vehicle has based on the VIN? Cause my RPO sticker is so faded I can only make out one code. I'll post a picture later to show you what I mean. I would really like to know what my car was equiped with.

That's why it'd be great if it worked on the Turbo Buicks. Since the VIN only tells you that it's a true turbo car, only an RPO code will tell you if the car is really a Grand National or a Turbo T (T-Type). If the original RPO sticker or trunk lid is gone, nobody knows.

I also heard that the rpo codes also list region, dealer etc,.So you will have 1 of 1 with those options delivered to a certain region, dealer etc,.

This is very neat.

My car's birthday's coming up!

Vehicle: ROADMASTER ESTATE STA WAG
Year: 1993
Build Date: 1993-05-05

A spry 18 going on 19.

Surprised there were so few Black RMW wagons and that it doesn't note wood grain or not. Mine has it of course.

41U EXTERIOR COLOR,PRIMARY (41U)
EXTERIOR COLOR,PRIMARY,BLACK (41U)
276

GU5 AXLE,REAR,3.23 RATIO 3.23R(GU5)
6,855

G80 AXLE,REAR,POSITRACTION,LIMITED SLIP POSITRACTION L/SLIP R/AXL(G80)

V08 COOLING SYSTEM,HEAVY DUTY HVY DUTY CLG(V08)
7,134
4,132
V92 TRAILER PROVISIONS TRLR PROVISIONS(V92)
6,830
F40 SUSPENSION,HEAVY DUTY,FRONT AND REAR HVY DUTY SUSP(F40)
9,713

Also surprised to see that I have a posi rear-end and 3.23 gears. I would expected 273's and a non-posi. But I guess its part of the tow/heavy duty package. Glad I didn't upgrade to 355's when I had a chance. Clearly to get some pick-up on the low end, I'd need 3:73's and that's no good with a auto.

Woodgrain was standard, it would only denote NON woodgrain with the WB4 RPO code.

Found something useful to go along the compnine tool for those those who stalk wagons and want to know whats in them. If you go to carfax's web site the front page asks for a vin or now a plate number to get your report. If you put in the plate number the next page shows the car that is registered under that plate and the VIN. I tried it out on my plates and a few random ones and it worked great on all but one of my vanity plates. Could be a big help for mystery cars on craigslist if the plate is visible Smile

Don't be. History reports on Carfax can include inspections, registrations, and title transfers. Not just accidents.

It also records emissions tests where reported too,.

For me a car that has a lot of reports, is more credible than one that is bought new, goes to a state that reports nothing like inspections or emissions etc,. goes through 2-3 owners , then interestingly pops up fpr sale 15 yrs later with ridiculous low mileage,.
I know a guy that pulled the cluster on a car he,d bought, and a paper tag with the vin was still on it,. only thing was, it wasn't the same vin as the car,..and he had no way of verifying mileage.
Carfax are idiots tho,. if a car is imported to canada, and it has a digital dash than can be switched from miles to kms with a button like the caprices and caddy's,. carfax only reports in miles, so when it gets a report thats now in kms,.it puts up a red flag for mileage discrepancy,.
try explaining that to some good ole boy, if the car is up for sale and they pull a carfax..

The carfax confirmed for me (before I bought my OCC) that the seller was truthful. He said the original and second owners were from Texas and the car had 51,355 miles. Car fax showed the mileage each time the car was registered and emission tested (every two years), and the transfer to owner #two. So I bought it! Smile

Here's something funny. I had wanted to get a vanity plate for my 95 DCM RMW last year but never got around to it, then stored it for the winter and forgot about it. Today I checked and saw the plate I wanted "RD.MSTR" is taken Sad
I ran that plate in carfax and as it turn out its on a 94 Roadie Wagon! I ran its vin through compnine and even funnier its a DCM woody with tan guts and no tow package. I guess if I can't have the plate it may as well be an almost identical looking car.

And as others have said, those records are a lot of times maintenance, emissions, or registration renewals.

Ah. I forgot about emissions. (Naturally... lol)

So yeah, Mike, 8 records for something 20 years old sounds like a really good sign to me.

I looked my car up and found it was made on 4/27/12. The oil needs to be changed, I haven't washed in a week and a half, and I have it all loaded up with baseball equipment.... Not much of a birthday.
