Just saw this thread and it brought to mind when I had the dmv verify the frame vin on my 1980. If I had brought along the LST I might have had some ammunition to shoot back with. My frame was stamped k0062 before the kgdxxxxx. That didn't match the vin plate and she sent me off to the chp to sort it out, which only made things worse (they stuck me with a "truck" plate because it had a terra top on it). The LST had pre-printed on it k0062 before the vin. Anyone else notice this?
