N604551 would have been final-assembled on or about Feb 25. Should have 02D tag date.
Learning more and more about less and less...

Sure. As long as it's a factory tag! A lot are not.

And by the way, you're missing a digit in your VIN. It should be 124379N604551

I didn't want to make the detective work too easy.  The vin tag and cowl tag appears to be original from what I have noticed, but what do I know.

Here is what I have.  From what I have found it appears to be an L34 car.

I think the original running gear has been swapped out, here is a couple pics of the rear-end numbers.  I haven't researched it much.

I guess its below the u bolt. I'll have to get the car on a lift to pull it off, I'm way too big to climb under and unbolt it.
