Vin won't tell you a lot, You want to check and see if any service records, Check for oil leaks around motor and around the diff, You also might want to check the codes, You can do this within the car no reader needed.

Thanks Mr. Bill, this car is coming from carmax, they want 22,000 for a 2004 blue ZO6 6 speed. I just dont want to buy a fake zo6 and later find out I was duped
Art, you can't buy a fake '04 Z. They stopped making the Fixed Roof coupe-only option in 2001, when they introduced the new Z06. The Z has a permanent hard top with a trunk, while the 'sport coupe' has a large rear glass in a hatchback configuration.

Agreed, just make sure it is FRC 01 and above and it has to be a Z06!
I have seen far too many coupes and convertibles with Z06 brake duct coolers, mesh grill inserts, and Z06 badges. It ain't a Z06!!
