Model Year Indentification, the alpha-numeric way

Beginning in 1980 Model Year, the world standard became "Globally" based on how a vehicle (anything mobile that had a "title"), short of "Sleds" at that time (Naturally), used the 10th POSITION in their 17 CHARACTER Vin listing as how to determine exactly what Model Year it officially was....

Below is a list of 1980 through upcoming 2019 and its "10th" character...

1980: A
1981: B
1982: C
1983: D
1984: E
1985: F
1986: G
1987: H
1988: J
1989: K
1990: L
1991: M
1992: N
1993: P
1994: R
1995: S
1996: T
1997: V
1998: W
1999: X
----------
NOTE: Sleds began using this in 2000 with the "Y" as the 10th character

2000: Y
2001: 1
2002: 2
2003: 3
2004: 4
2005: 5
2006: 6
2007: 7
2008: 8
2009: 9

2010: A
2011: B
2012: C
2013: D
2014: E
2015: F
2016: G
2017: H
2018: J
2019: K

Note: the letters: I, O, Q, U are not used due to the possibility of them being confused with other alpha or numerical markings....

(There really wasnt a use for the "Z")
