    Yes WS6 and WS9 should both be on there...not sure about the 2's in the VIN though...I doubt it.

    I think the fact that vin's on WS6's have a lot of two's ie: 2G2FV22 which is how a lot start out is just coincidence. NOT a sure fire way to tell. IT'S A FAKE FFS!

    Yup it's fake!! There needs to be a WS6 on the door ( it could have both WS6 & WS9 ) and the vin # does have alot of 2's (mine has 6 2's in it)

    Well first off... i dont think theres any way to tell from the vin you have a ws-6 car.... because they were just trans ams when they were built in the factory so they got a regular t/a vin. I seriously doubt when they were outsourced to acs that they changed the vin.

    Secondly the first 11 digits of the vin on a trans am should be remotley the same due to the vin breakdown system.. the begining 2 means it was built in canada.... the only place its going to vary from car to car are the last 6 serial # digits, the year digit, and possibly the check digit...

    Id say your best bet is the door sticker... individual options arent listed by vins

    Look for the lower airbox to have a larger gap. Most fakes don't change that part out. They just do the hood, wheels, and badge.

    Just look for the RPO codes.

    You can see WS6 right there on the door.

    That's a good one. That dealer looked at the VIN and saw a bunch of 2's and thought to himself, aww yeah, the WS6's have lots of 2's, yea, that sounds good. What a crock of S**T.

    On the car in question: I say fake!

    If you check out this website, it will prove that to be a misnomer. Essentially all T.A.'s, WS6 or not, start out with 1G2FV22 or 2G2FV22 depending on if they were made in the US or Canada. check it out.

    I guess the dealer that sold me my WS6 was full of S**T about having all those 2's in my VIN. Having 10 2's in the VIN made it easy for him to sound like he knew what he was talking about. Oh well, I don't care. I got a good deal on the car anyway.
