    Our cars are Canadian and BTW it also has kilometers on the inside set of numbers. So it could be sold in Standard (MPH) or Metric (KPH) use countries. Look at the mph it is in white along with the numbers, below that is kph in gold, same color as the numbers.

    Bottom line it didn't matter what country you where in you could still drive it.

    OK I am aware of where our cars are made and figured that all of North America was not needed to be mentioned because it was obvious to everyone but maybe not... Also ours here have the MPH on top and the KM/H on the bottom as opposed to the other way around like the "export ones". There is in fact a difference. Here is a pic of one...

    Guys...,

    We DO indeed use MPH in the UK and i initially looked at a few "euro" spec cars before deciding i had to have a "proper" TA and imported one from upstate NY. Something as minor as the dash reading predominately in KPH would have driven me nuts. Had to import really as for some reason we seem to hold the world market in V6 cloth interior cars and it had to be a WS6 too !!!!!!

    Also the euro cars have built in fog lights in the bumper, foldaway door mirrors to comply with some silly rule of ours and a big long plate aperture in the bumper for our normal plates. Having said that if the car was built with a 12" x 6" space in the US then we can fit that size plate! Oh... and far too many amber turn signals fitted her there and everywhere!!

    Interesting to see also, the pic that Cutlass posted as i thought they NEVER built a right hand drive TA for any market at all , unless it is a camaro as i am not sure how similar the interiors are??

    My thoughts on all of it !!

    Yeah, it's interesting, as is the display. The article is blunter about the car's shortcomings than I'm used to. One annoyance: "Like the Camaro on which it is based"
