I found the records for each of those numbers to be Solstice convertibles. Interesting those numbers were used 8-9 months earlier in Solstice production, while the majority of the numbers in the group were assigned to SKY production which was only planned to start some 8 months later (Dec 6 through Dec 16, 2005).

Here is where the importance of the Model year part of the code comes in.

The March 2005 production was 6Y1000xx and you are comparing those numbers to the 7Y100xxx Sky numbers. Different model years are involved here.

The last 6 of the VIN are started over at 100001 with EACH MODEL YEAR. This is why you need to use the last 8 of the VIN.

The last 8 of any GM VIN are a unique identifier that will only reference a single GM car. The last 6 of the VIN are useless without the model year and plant identifier.

As a side note all 6Yxxxxxx cars are Solstice LE5s. There were no LNFs made until mid-model year 7Yxxxxxx. There were no Skys made with 6Yxxxxxx, as all Skys were 7Yxxxxxx and up.

Dave, I see your point and I agree that eight (8) characters must be used. So, in looking back at my search of those missing five numbers in December 2005, I was using 6Y1000xx and finding a March/April 2005 manuf. dates. To find those missing units for 12/05 of my search, I must use 7Y1000xx. My attempts with those changes have not produced those units, so stumped on finding those for now.

I also note you state each model year's production starts with 100001, etc. Somehow, I had thought that was not happening, so i stand corrected on that important point. Thx

Also, in reviewing your previous posts, I believe I understand production went something like this:
1) the first Solstice cars 6Y100001~6Y100700 were produced starting around approx March 2005.
2) then promotion cars 6Y000001~6Y001000 were produced and spoken for in a 41 minute sell out.
3) following were Solstice ~6Y100701 and up began again for an unknown number of units.

Yes, this topic can be confusing! :banghead:

But we know exactly how many were made each year, at least what GM published for stockholder's interests.

reedred (on this forum) and I (on the Solstice forum), tracked production numbers each month after GM published the monthly numbers.

Reed put it together into a spreadsheet, by model year production by month, and published it here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...b?output=html#

For what it is worth, I was tracking Solstices, Skys, Corvettes and XLRs. Reed was tracking Solstices, Skys and Opel GTs. Despite our tracking them slightly differently, in the end our numbers agreed, identically.

Have fun.

:D

Dave, BINGO.
What a link and what a spreadsheet!! Must represent a ton of work on each of your parts, you and Reed. I have seen those numbers before, but never with the monthly breakouts. That's now in my smartphone's email, forever in my pocket. Thx
:cool:

5 minutes per month on old GM's website. New GM does not publish this info, I don't think.

First KAPPA's production, FOUND
 
I realize this topic is off subject for this tread, so I will start a new thread with the topic on the 'dates of the first Kappa production'.
:rolleyes:

Maybe. IF both O2 sensors are operating properly then it probably is a bad catalytic converter, yes.

If your cat was clogged, you could see a reduction of power but usually you'll throw a CEL.
