And if you ever decide to export a US vehicle to Europe, make sure that a) you clean off the (original) hammered VIN for easy inspection, and b) the EU custom agents know where to find it, or they will put in a new (random) VIN in a easy access location of their choice which is usually not visually appealing. Plus it can cause number matching confusion down the road with resale.

And if you don't have a hammered VIN or can't find it, (re)hammer one in yourself in convenient chassis location (must be in non-removable body panel). Much preferable over the sloppy jobs done at border (been there, done it...)
