Should be engine, doors, dash, and I think maybe on the RPO sticker on the spare tire cover of the trunk?

The sequence number (the last 6 or 7 characters of your VIN) will also appear on the transmission case and underneath the plastic top radiator support. I'm sure there are other (supposedly secret) places as well, to help cops find stolen and altered vehicles. These also let you know whether your car has the original trans and engine - you've heard the term "numbers match?" [edit: seems I've also seen stickers with bar codes on body parts that may also carry VIN information]
