Another question for the great minds of VV: Where can I get info on
decoding my car's ID tag/engine number?  I am trying to find out as much
as i can about the car, but the PO is, at this point, being a bit
unresponsive.  I know how to decode the VIN (10765W164166)...my engine
number is TI2I7RB (If I am reading it from the right place).  My ID tag
says 2331 Body and E-1 paint.  The bottom of the tag has W2LC4P -- ...I
know there is supposed to be another number somewhere on the drive
train...but I haven't jacked it up to try to find it yet.  

I am debating stock restore vs. fun modifications...and would like to
know what I am dealing with.  I own the shop manual and How to Keep Your
Corvair Alive and have Corvair Basics and Care and Feeding of Your
Corvair on my next to buy book list (the second recommended to help me
with my upcoming clutch job)...do I need to add another book to the list
(IE, one with info that would help answer questions like above).  Thanks
