More Camaro News from Motor Trend

http://www.motortrend.com/features/a...evrolet_camaro

Cliff notes:
Mules on the road in Australia soon?
20s doable on production car, but even 24s will fit.
Production dimensions slightly different than concept, styled same.
V6 version to have 3.9L? and start around $21,000?

It's a pretty good read.

Interesting indeed. 6 mos ago everybody's eggs were in the "basket" of there not being a lo-po v6...it was just going to be a multicammer and the V8.

I found this it says mules already out

http://blogs.motortrend.com/1010511/...event/#Scene_2

"Holden boss Denny Mooney says Camaro mules - jammed in cut-down Holden Commodore bodies - are already on the road in Australia, and the first prototype body-in-white has just been built. Camaro is definitely go.

GM's other Aussie star cars? The little Daewoo-based Chevy T2X crossover concept (third from top with Nick Cannon) was styled by Max Wolff, a Holden designer, and the Chevy WTCC (fourth from top with Mario Lopez) concept - an outlandish take on a European-style road racer - is also the work of a Holden design team.



And finally, there's the Holden Efijy (at left with Christian Slater), a wild re-imagining of the 1953 Holden FJ sedan. The FJ Holden - a car that owes its basic design to a 1940 concept for a small Chevy - is as iconic a car to Aussie GM fans as a '57 Chevy is to their American counterparts. Detroit showgoers may wonder about the Holden badges on the flamboyant Efijy (which was built on a C5 Corvette platform) but there's just enough Detroit DNA in the design that it could be one of the surprise hits of the show.

More photos of Stars and Cars below include (from top): Rosie Perez with the Pontiac Solstice hardtop, Jay-Z with the GMC Yukon Denali, Nick Lachey with the Cadillac XLR-v and Carmen Electra with the Chevrolet Camaro coupe concept"

I wouldn't be suprised if there are Camaro Zeta Chassis running around under Holden bodies. This is not uncommon for companies to do

Looks pretty good!
Definitely could be close to production dimensions there.

See if you can make the marking lights taller too, as they will no doubt be bigger on a produciton car (federal laws will mandate that change). Maybe make them double the height and see how that looks.
