That's because its a MT not because of the sport package.

Is there another way to get your VIN besides the dealer?

Window Sticker

The sticker has the build date top left 120110405, so 4/5/2011

Ok, here's what may sound like a dumb question....

What does the build date actually designate? The day the chassis starts the assembly line or the day it rolls off the line? My Corvette has a build date of 8-6-76. If I am not mistaken that is the day the trim tag was attached to the completed body and car was finished. Obviously I'm comparing apples to oranges but it's just an example....

Also, what is the time frame of the car on the assembly line?

Looks like bossstl's car will be shipped by rail and mine will go by convoy.

Do you know what the significance of the date underneath the barcode is? the line starting with "BC"

While I don't know for sure, I think it is the date that ID was created, which is probably the same day the VIN was assigned.
