abbreviation thread?

Is there a thread or some other place to get the information on what all the abbreviations mean? FA5? FG2? etc? I know there are more and I'd like to know what they all mean. Thanks.

Those are chassis codes. There isn't any such thread so a quick google search will be your best bet.

FG2 = USDM coupe
FA5 = USDM sedan
