Earlier this morning, you might've noticed the corner of the Z06's Service Parts Identification sticker. It's the sticker GM applies to the inside of the glove box that contains your car's RPO (regular production option) codes and VIN (vehicle identification numbers). Yeah, it made me curious too, so jump with me for a translation of what our 2002 Z06's VIN & RPO codes reveal...
