    Even the new Camaro's are being built in Canada. Look at the first number of any VIN... if it's a 1 it was built in America, 2 is Canada and I think 3 is Mexico. All Fbodies start with a 2.

    2008 Z06 - Velocity Yellow - OEM

    2017 Silverado Z71 5.3 - OEM

    2002 Z06 - Electron Blue Metallic - D1 - E85 - 701 rwhp 687 rwtq **sold**

    2002 Z28: M6 NBM - cam and boltons - 396rwhp 357 rwtq **sold**

    WOW... I feel dumb now to not have known that. Guess when people sell thier Camaro's they shouldn't put canada because it looks like it turns people off who don't know any better.
