    How can I determine where my 1990 Chevy 1500 Silverado was built ? Is it in my Vin ?

    I found this list, but the few sites I visited said it was the 11th digit. The tenth digit represents the year, L= '90, M='91, N='92, P='93, R='94, S='95.....
    here are the 11th digit plant codes. I don't understand why J represents 2 plants

    Well there's no 'L' so I assume it's a '1' and that's either Oshawa Ontario Canada or Wentzville Missouri ? But on my owners card it's clearly an 'L' ?
