It's coming!

uk.msn.com has the Camaro on the front page - plus it's in the Excel motor show blog here:

http://msnukcars.spaces.live.com/Blo...C56!3276.entry

and here:

http://cars.uk.msn.com/britishmotors...mentid=8895863

Still unsure on whether we'll get a RHD model (with the Australian market being targeted I have to say, Yes) and god only knows if we'll get an "options" list as I seriously suspect we won't (too small numbers for GM to care).

I'm probably still gonna go LHD and import around the same time and just purchase the UK bits (orange evil horrible ugly rear lights) and whatnot. If for no other reason than I can get an SS V8 for about half the money (I don't even need to know what the costs will be as it's irrelavant).

Just need to wait. A. Long. Time. :(

Well, when you get it, make sure you bring it along to one of our Mustang meets. It's already got quite a few fans in our community and I can't wait to see one in the metal.

If and when I've seen it and it's as good in person as in the pics, I'll get one on order and then I might just come along (if I'm not beaten up for owning the wrong badge ).

I've seen it now - at the Excel show in London (I'll get some pics up later, but you've all seen it already - the Hugger Orange 'vert).

My thoughts? Too big - I mean, it's the concept but still - it's ruddy HUGE.

Still, the Chevy people there told me it's definitely coming here in RHD early 2010 and I'm on the brochure/call me/test drive list. Hopefully it'll at least feel smaller than it looks.

Otherwise, I stood for ages drooling over it

Quite tempted by a Corvette now mind you - it's quite a bit smaller :P
