it is possible for an 07 model late 07! That is nice to see that you have returned GoTeamCamaro have you told the big boy's in the office how pissed we are that the challanger was confermed before the camaro! I seriously am surprised that it worked out like that! So are you ever going to show this page to Bob Lutz? Or someone who can do something to make this car a reality.WE are dying to here some good news about the camaro! Considering that ford has a 500 horse power mustang and Dodge now has the challanger, and the longer GM waits to conferm the camaro the more time people have to think about these other 2 muscle machines which could take away possible sales from GM. That is just my 2 cents woth because I really want to be a 5th gen owner! Oh yea the car does look like a mazda but it still looks better than an Impala!

Yeah, that's impressive considering how much lower volume any model is in Aussie land than here. It must be very inexpensive in relative terms to build different combos.
Remember what I told you a while back involving the number 7?

That is a distinct possibility, and one I certainly hope is true. If this were to be sold as the Impala here in the US, there would be no need for an alliance with any other company for GM; sales of the Impala would go through the roof.
