not price gouging. The sale and possession of those rivets is illegal per federal law and most states have laws against it. That prevents people from switching VINs on cars or changing to make a cheaper model car more valuable. So it could be a sting. those rivets were never a GM product. They were keep under lock and key at the assembly plant and only a few people were permitted to install VIN tags and those rivets were strictly kept counted and inventoried even then.
