Talking Does anyone know when is it coming to the Middle Eastern Markets?

Hello Fellow Camaro fans,

It is a fact that here is not the right place to introduce myself, I just wanna mention that I'm an Arab man living in Bahrain (which sould explain the wiered question to most of you), a country in middle east. And no, it's not near Dubai, it's near Saudi. Anyways. Does anybody know when the new Camaro Ariving here to our Markets? Usually it takes somewhere between 5 to 6 months from the initial release in the US markets. I wan to order it from USA if it gonna take this long. And I need to know how to do it!!

And BTW, I forgot to mention that I think American cars suck. Poor quality, high petrol consumption and always feel like a water bed when driving them. however, I already own a Chevrolet Corvette, and always thought Camaros are Sh*te. I've just watched this movie Transformers and I liked bumblebee (the new yellow Camaro Robot) and thus I'm geting one for sure.

...I'm not sure what to say to that second post...and I'm not in the mood for a fire-fight, so I won't touch it. I will say - don't say that Camaro's are **** to often, it won't go over very well, especially here on a Camaro site.

But as far as I've heard, Camaro is going to Austrailia, and to the UK...haven't heard anything about the middle east, yet...

And Welcome to the boards!

I wouldn't say Camaros are Sh*te, I'm buying a new one, and hoping that I'll be getting a chick just like the one in the Transformer's movie. Lolz.

Don't worry thoug, Advice taken

Forget about it mate. After the high school girls in Bahrain become either as thin as sticks, or as fat as pigs. I'm gonna buy this awesome Camaro. And I and go to have rounds all over Bahrain high Schools (the time when girls are perfect). I'm thinking about buying a Yellow Camaro, convertible, with Black stripes. The Corvette was awesome when it first got here, the corvette did it's part and I had a good time with it, but you can see corvettes all over the country now. I'd day the car lost it's glamour a bit. Which sucks. I'll sell it and will use the money as a down payment for the new Camaro, I just cannot wait any longer. Just can'ttttt

I don't quite understand what you meant up there mate, can you please define "Strokes" for me mate?

Did you mean:
1 - strokes like in touches?
2 - Illness
3 - Mark
4 - Hit
5 - Swimming Action?
6 - Event?
7 - Clock sound?
8 - or Sloping Line?

In all cases it did not make sense to me!!

Strokes, can mean any number of things...I think of it as, diff ways to stroke while painting, or diff strokes of genious/luck/ideas...

but anyway you think of it: Different preferences for different people.
This lingo-divideis gonna be interesting, I can see it already.

unkbd was referring to what motivates me to buy the car, wasn't he? :-) lolz. I don't mind him saying that Dragoneye. Everything we do in life is for either sex, or money (which is ultimately sex) lolz. Hell yeah, I like sports cars and being ass kickingly fast purely for Girls/ladies/ho's or whatever female human creatures you'd like them to be called mate. This is something I'm not ashamed of, it's the truth everywhere, I'm just being honest about it. Unlike most of us who use the lame execuse of making the earth a better placde to live. Well, a bed is doing this job already. Earth cannot be a better place to live in especially with the new gorgeous peace of machinary that we call Camaro :P lolz

PS: I notices that the Session timeout on this page is quite short, I have to referesh the page over and over again when writing responds. Just a pointer

To answer the basic question, you have as good of an idea as we do. We don't know exactly when the car is coming out over here but it is expected to be January 2009. Now, for some of the other things . . . I'll just follow Dragons lead and not say much.

But, am I the only one that notices that it seems like the Camaro will appear to be a bit of an exotic over there? Odd considering the fact that I see 2-3 Camaros a day (mostly 4th gen).

lucky. I'm blessed if I see 1 a week...Not counting the one in my garage
Though, that is a good question, Hey, Bastard... (can I call you that?) Are there many Camaro's over there? or are they exotic-esque?

DragonEye, you can totally call me Bastard without any offense taken, that's what's written for a nickname, isn't it?:-P.

And sorry folks for saying stuff about Camaro. I just hate the fact that my brother could've died in one 2 years back. It was 4th Gen. And I think this pretty much answers your questions wither we get Camaros right here or not, in fact we have here (in my town only which is called Isa_Town - Google it) shit-load of Camaros. We don't see much Ferraris or Lambourginis (whatever the spelling is) on the road, we see one of each from now and then however.

I thought the new gen Camaro is coming in mid 2008. Jan 2009 is too far

The world has seriously became one little village mates. I reckon you still imagine Arab men as dark beareded guyz with Camels for transportation walking in the desert to reach for a small Oasis somewhere? Lolz

i3litzkrieg - You have an interesting nickname, you're a MetFan?

While many still kinda think that, unfortunately there is also a good portion who view all arabs as terrorists. However, I know that is about as accurate as labeling Americans as racist war mongers.

It seems to me this thread tends to get... . This forum is for discussing THE CAMARO...be very careful discussing comments regarding nationality.

RaginBastard, welcome.

I will take exception to one of your comments though;
[B]"And BTW, I forgot to mention that I think American cars suck. Poor quality, high petrol consumption and always feel like a water bed when driving them."[/B]

American cars DO NOT suck, the quality has improved dramatically, their efficiency has also improved dramatically, and I would like to know what American car you drove which felt like a water bed.

I will not deny that there have been a fair share of American cars made which we would like to forget, but every country has manufactured cars which they would also like to forget about.

Now, back on topic! If the Camaro were to be exported to Bahrain, I'd look for it within a year of being introduced here in the U.S.
