^ aticle says reuse vins kinda scary thot. They should reuse vins from cars that are Junkyard material or totaled.

Ya.... that would kinda ruin the VIN process though. Having more than one car for a VIN :dunno: A lot of stuff could go wrong with that.

simplest solution would be to have manufacturer code, model code, and production number:

ie. US built 2004 Camry V6 XLE 4TMCV30605225

apparently that costs billions of dollars. That would be too easy.
