I think the VIN on Ressler's ZR1 is 5900001 and Leno's is 5800001, or something like that(not exactely sure with those numbers)
I hope that make at least a little sense.
On the ZR1...
Regular production ZR1s start with vin 800001
The first one is Cyber Gray 1G1YR26R895800001 (owned by Jay Leno)
GM used a different 900000 vin sequence for Mr Ressler's BD1 car, it's 1G1YR26R495900001.
Currently the production sequence for CTF cars has began with a 0. I'm guessing that they'll make production cars start with a 1. So the first VIN will likely be 2G1FK1EW9A9100001 (a discussion of VINs can be found here
). Who knows if they'll do something like the ZR1 with Hendrick's car and give him a different VIN series than anyone else.
