They are called "Rosette Rivets" and are very hard to find and are not legal in some states, here is a link to someone selling them thru Cars-on-Line,

GM Rosette Rivets for sale

I found a pair thru a vendor on e-bay selling data plate rivets, but I don't remember their name.

Good luck,

there is an ad in hemmings motor news every month in the Pontiac parts section. don't know if its a good thing or bad thing for them to be available for purchase. someone could be dishonest.

In my state, once the vin tag is removed from a vehicle, it is considered tampered and a new VIN plate must be issued by the state. This greatly decreases the value of the vehicle. It is considered a crime to remove the VIN tag from a vehicle, and if my memory serves, this is a nation-wide thing. VIN tags should be masked off when a vehicle is refinished, but never removed. Once removed, the entire vehicle is suspect.
