Will the ZED/28 be available in Canada?

Will the Z/28 be available in Canada. I had wanted to buy a '13 Boss LS to go with my standard 12 but they weren't available up here because of some lighting issue. Will the changes made to the Z/28 affect availability here?

The Canadian cars are using the lower fogs for DRLs in 2013. The LS won't mount fogs because of the brake ducts. This also means that regular Boss owners can't install them either if they want to have working DRLs.

Oh, and ZED/28 sounds so much better than ZEE/28 which just sounds like a speech impediment. ;-)

Both the Canadians and British utilize the pronunciation of 'Z' as Zed.

If I understand it correctly, the Z/28 does not come with fog lights.

Correct. USA is the only country which pronounces the letter Z as "zee". Everywhere else it's pronounced as "zed".

I use both. Being British ancestry, it works both ways because saying Zed Zed Top sounds retarded lol.

Maybe Americans will start saying "zed" when the country goes metric - or when hell freezes over!
...but back to the original question, I've already put that query out there and I'm still waiting for a response. The thing that concerns me is that (for whatever reason) GM Canada has elected not to sell the Chevrolet SS in Canada.

Best regards,

Elie

So the question is if the Z/28 has DRL's and I think it does.

Maybe the bigger question is if GM will actually sell the car in Canada.
