Welcome to the CRG!
I don't know if anyone on here has come across a vin tag miss used, BUT there are plenty of fake trim tags out there, that are being misrepresented, almost on a daily basis. If you follow the threads on here or do a search you will see plenty of fake tags, from ebay auctions and similar sellers trying to pass something off as original.
I guess what I am saying is we don't need to re-count any stories, there are enough current stories for you to get your fill.
Spring is finally here....
I agree with Cook, there is a couple legit typo's out there, but a huge amount of fake stuff. When looking at a car now a days especially a 69 Camaro, you almost have to go in thinking it is a fake, and let the docs and dates do the talking. The CRG members here are A-1, if you post up pics they will tell you if it is real.
