I believe I can help with question #2:

The pics that you have seen of Camaros with amber rear markers, are of international spec cars. Something about the laws of our friends across the pond and down under, etc... US spec Camaros will have red taillights only no matter what trim level. The only difference in the RS package in regards to the taillights is that they are darker red in RS trim.

Pricing: Dec 16, 2008.... Release: First 1/4 2009 (on or about March 1)

Amber taillamps are for overseas vehicles; Europe and Australia. All US models will have red taillamps with the RS optioned cars having a 'smoked' version.

Preliminary MGP estimates for both A6/M6 V8 cars is 23 MPG.

and thats all... thanks for the help guys :hello:

Just to confirm everyone else....

Production starts October.
September Indy show releases more cars/info.
SEMA will be VERY Camaro-ized this year.
Prices released in December (so dealer orders then as well).
In dealerships March '09.

Yellow taillights are only because cars were in Australia.

Estimated hwy numbers for V8 are 23-24, but I'm sure it will get better than that. Most times they underestimate it, because the tests aren't real world, and you get in more trouble if you over-estimate. :D

Dang, Jonz, we really do think alike. Same cars, then same posts at the same time... :)

Works for me. But if I get bizarre sometimes, you'll have to switch and be the straight man. :D

Announced a long time ago. I think Feb 16th was the date they said it would "go on sale" when they had their big release of the production models.
