I am putting the dash from my 93 5spd in my 95 auto. the vin number is riveted to the dash. who would care if the vin on the dash doesn't match the vin on the chassis? i will be the final owner of this car so i don't think it will really matter since i am the title owner of both cars.

The police may care.

IF there is some reason to check your VIN against your registration, i.e. you get pulled over, then you are in trouble. Also, some states inspect the car and the VIN better match the registration.

Just transfer the plate over.

I have the plate registered to the 5spd car (same as the dash) but they will be on the auto car that will have a diff vin on the chassis.

The 'plate' RGAZ is refering to is the VIN plate riveted to the dash, not the license plate.

Most likely if a cop wants to check the vehicles VIN, he will look at the one on the dash.

btw, they might even get suspicious if the rivets don't look original.......

^um, that's not what i meant.

I have my license plate registered to the black car. the black car's dash, along with the black car's vin plate, is going in the blue car. if I leave the license plate registered to the black car's vin, which is now showing on the dash in the blue car, will it matter that the chassis VIN doesn't match?
