If no one finds it by the time I can check on it later this evening I shall post it up. I learned vin decoding in insurance school (yeah I know, sounds retarded, but thats what it was.) and the numbers tell a huge story. Quite cool stuff, just wish my brain would spit it out. :lol:

below to translate the VIN (vehicle identification number) into a description. Several of the fields are manufacturer specific and are not included in the tables below:

Character #1, length 3 of the VIN number is the World Manufacturer Identifier (WMI) the first character is the country, the next 1 or 2 designates the manufacturer. (see table below)
Character #4, length 5 of the VIN number is the body style or features, which varies by manufacturer
Character #9, length 1 of the VIN number is a check digit, which helps programs verify that the VIN has been entered accurately
Character #10, length 1 of the VIN number is the model year (see table below)
Character #11, length 1 of the VIN number identifies the assembly plant
Character #12, length 6 of the VIN number is the manufacturer sequence number

Open the drivers side door and there is a manufacture sticker on the lower right side. It will tell you the month and year assembled. Mine is 01/2007. Hope this helps.
