BlueBird VIN definition...

I dunno if this is already posted or not but I downloaded it from the BlueBird portal. Instead of using the questionable online searches. I have a similar one for Thomas that leaves half of the wheelbases off.

thanks Bob, i've never seen that VIN code.

there are a few of them out there. as many searches as i do for them i use the vin decoder a lot.

i should just print out that 7th digit engine code so i can see when looking at auctions.

my favor vin decoder is here.

P.S. You can look up your own bus too. No login, secret squirrel dealer password or anything like that.
