Pickies coming soon but have to go out tonight. First impressions AWESOME. Love it already ... got to get used to people pointing as you drive by and swooning and photographing when you stop. I've had some nice motors but never quite this reaction. Better get some cool shades !!

A bit embarrassing, but in a nice way. Pickies attached. The first one is at W H Brand's when it was delivered to them last week.

Congratulations!!!! Those new style wheels look sweet, and of course you couldn't have chosen a better colour. I bet you'll have more fun in the Camaro, than you could in a poncy Ferrari, or Porsche.

Looks fantastic.

At the moment it's looking like the 1st week of December for mine.

Rick - Quick couple of questions. Did the car come with any paperwork, manuals and service book etc and did you get rear floor mats.

It has an Owner's Manual and a Warranty & Service Guide in a leather (ish) wallet. I'm slowly working thru the Manual (just under 1/2 way thru !) and continue to be delighted with the toys on board. I'll have a few questions for everyone once I've finished (like is the rear view and driver wing mirror auto dimming - manual says "the dimming feature and the indicator light come on each time the vehicle is started" - haven't seen that !)

Rear floor mats - no.

Still getting road positioning right - a bit hairy at times on the narrow country lanes round here - compromise between not dinging the rims and not losing a wing mirror !!

IOM, black stripes, orange interior, standard silver 20" wheels & splash guards.

I'm getting a pro detailer to give it the works and protect it with Gtechniq's silver package & 2 layers of Exo before it gets delivered to me.

It's been hard enough keeping my current car clean in our so called Summer so no way am I going to get chance during December. Plus I want to drive it straight away rather than taking hours detailing it myself.

The wait is driving me mad already so no dilema for me. The sooner it's here the better

Dwew the orange interior is top dollar. The door panels are illuminated tastefully too with a lovely orange glow. I love my inferno orange look in and out!

Great to hear other Camaro owners so full of excitement!

Sweet car Rick! Not sure if you ever get used to people staring and taking photos. Wait for spring/summer the B roads are brilliant.

Thanks. I find myself still ogling at it when I go outside.

Hopefully by spring I'll be a bit more used to its width viewing from the "wrong" side !!
