Default VIN numbers

Can someone point me to a source on the web where I can find out what each of the numbers in the VIN means. For example, which letter means it a 4WD manual 2.2 liter turbo, etc.

Thanks
Mike

Exclamation A way-way-back search may find it...

Wow. this had been discussed at length here some time back... I think that a search in 'General' will turn it up.

Good luck.

Smile Gack!

That was in no way intended as a flame.... The thread was about a year ago, and I was feeling to lazy to look...

Post a link to the thread here when/if you find it.
