I just bought a 79 L82, and the first thing I noticed was the speedometer is backwards. The outer numbers are in km per hour. Goes to 240. The odomoter also turns in km. I drove it 600 miles home, and checked a lot of mile markers, it turns 1.7 times for each mile. Was it origonally an overseas car? My first Vette, I will feel stupid if this is normal. Tell me it's not.

Sounds like it was for sale in Canada
