Wahey!!! Good news indeed. I bet the journey to and from your holiday will be more exciting than the actual holday this year. I take it, you'll be on the new "62" plate as well.

Stray - getting her on Friday/Saturday. Made a nice space for her in the garage. Then off on hols on Sunday, unfortunately without her. I'll try my best not to wish my hols away, so I can get back to the car. It's typical though! - wait all that time to get the car and then only get a day to play before my hols!!!!!!! It will have personalised plate, not a 62 though.

Red - I'm sure she will be in the back off my mind though whilst away!!!!

Congratulations. Looks fantastic and looking at those pictures make me wish I had mine even more. I've ordered the same spec but it will probably be December until I get it.

Congratulations, a great colour choice. A quick question to the guys who have imported their camaro's - i notice from these photos that behind the rear tires they have added extra plastic extending outwards at the back of the arch i guess to cover the wheels at the back of the car. The question i have is, is this a requirement for the car to pass IVA inspection or was this to pass the car into European standards?

I only noticed those when I read your post. However when I privately imported mine from the 'states in 2011, these weren't necessary to pass the IVA test. To gain type approval as an official import,the rules may be a little more stringent though. I am aware that technically no part of the tyre should stand proud of the bodywork (as you face it, or look at it from behind), as a safety precaution, to prevent stones or excesive spray flying all over the place.
Regards.
Tim.
