Camaro 2010 pix at Paris AutoShow 2008

Hi everyone,
my name is francois as you noticed I'm french and of course a true lover of american muscle cars and in particular...the Camaro.
It's been since the new mustang 2005 that at last legendary american muscle cars began to reborn from their hashes.
As Chevrolet announced the concept in 2006, I wrote to the french marketing direction to have details about the car. I got an invitation to the Paris autoshow to see the Camaro and...seat in it
Someone at chevy france told me that the Camaro would be sold in france early 2010 - ok I'm not going to debate about this possibility because we know how hard it is to import US cars on our soil due to our damn security/pollution standards. Anyway I'm sure that if the Cam comes it'll be a hit.

As I told you I got IN the car, and well...it's beautiful ; this is truely a revival I forgot how much I love USA for these kind of wonderful toys. This is a MUST have car with a true soul that beats everything I know (I don't like european sport cars very much - except Maserati)

Well here are some pix I took, I know this is not very original but well you're in love or you're not...

Welcome francois! Great pictures! Thanks for sharing them!

I think it's great that GM will be selling the Camaro in other markets besides the U.S market. So France will also be getting the Camaro too? Cool! Hopefully in a couple years you'll be able to own one!

Thx guys!

well I'm praying everyday for the Camaro to be my next car in 2010 I will have a 45.000€ budget for it => 57.000$ at today's quote - but you know the Camaro would be probably a little more expensive ; and I don't want to imagine if i have to buy it with a french importer if chevrolet doesn't sell it...I remember that the HHR should come in france but didn't due to the very specific security/pollution french standards - Gosh I should live in the USA...

Chemical you're damn right! There's nothing on this planet like the sound of a good american made V8! I like the P51 Mustang aircraft sound too (even if it's a Rolls Royce merlin engine).

Thumbs up Great Pics!

Think many of them will sell over there? The cost of fuel must be wallet breaking??

Welcome Francois - What was the general consensus of the crowd? Did many like the car?
