Default How do I find out if my Honda is from US or Japan?

Basically, I need a new hubcap and if the car is US made it's a lot less than if it's Japanese made. I have the VIN number available (1HGCD568OVA157669)I just wondered if anyone knows of a website I could find out or something? I'm not having much luck myself.Thanks in advance In case this helps any: It's a 1997 Accord, but I don't know much more than that.

1 = USAThe first letter/number in the VIN designates its place of origin. 1-5 is North America, and 1 is the USA.Check the link...
