From the November 2001 issue of High Performance Pontiac


I like to collect Firebird memorabilia from the 2000 model year since that's the year of my 'bird. But a lot of this info carries over to the other '98-'02 'birds.

How to obtain GM of Canada Vehicle Documentation--added 09/05/09

--Vintage Vehicle Services can provide vehicle build documentation on Canadian produced and Canadian sold General Motors vehicles from 1945 to the present. This includes but is not limited to Canadian built Oldsmobiles, Chevrolets, Buicks and Pontiacs such as 1970 GTO's, 1969 442's, 1970 Chevelle's, 1993 to 2002 Canadian built Camaro's and Firebird's among others.
In general, on vehicles from 1964 to present, for $57.75 CDN, it will provide trim and paint codes, production date, engine size and horsepower, dealer, number produced, and all the option codes and what they mean on your particular VIN. Also included are the engineering specifications where available on that carline.
Canadian built cars in the late 60's usually had all numbers in the VIN, no letters, or the number 1 or 2 for the plant code as a rough guideline. On US sold and built newer vehicles ( 1980's to current day ), using information from your Service Parts ID Label we can also generate a package for you.
You can contact us at 905-440-7697 from 8-5 eastern time Monday to Friday, or via email at [email protected]

Oh, did I mention the new 2010 Camaro is built here in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada? And we do trucks also.

This is an awesome decoder. It breaks every RPO down by units produced, and tells how many 'birds were assembled just like yours:

So let me know and I'll be happy to hook you up! You guys can also try emailing Marty Straub at ASC @ [email protected] and see if he responds.

IMPORTANT! - 99 and 00 guys, pls send me the born on date from the driver door sticker along with your vin. TY.
