Re: Exporting to Australia

No im sorry but you cannot export ANY of our 1st gen Camaros. There was a bill passed called the Camaro conservation act and it prohibits exports of Camaros to foreign lands. Sorry, Maybe you might be interested in a nice Nova or Vega?

Thanks for your interest. Come again.

Re: Exporting to Australia

Im just waiting for my 68 RS/SS to land in New Zealand in the next 5 days cant wait, have waited for this vehicle to arrive for the last 8 weeks.

My understanding is when u import the vehicle into Australia you have to convert it to RHD is this correct.

Re: Exporting to Australia

Adrian, I'm just about to ship my 67 from Miami to Perth. You need to get an Vehicle Import permit from Dept. of Transport in Canberra before you can start the process and that will take up to three weeks to receive if you have all the relevant documentation. Send me a pm if you want more info.

Nahh you dont which is great !! They said as long as the car is older than 30 years then it doesn have to be done. It took 8 weeks for your car to come in ? This isnt to bad but man, I imagine how many sleepless nights you have had dreaming about your new toy in your garage !!!
Out of curiousity mate, how much do you think you saved importing your own car ? Im still debating whats better to do.

I appriciate your time on that mate. I spent the day calling up every where to get all the information and documents. Im all set up now As i asked the last person, why did you choose to import rather than buy one already here ? Do you think its worth it ?

Re: Exporting to Australia

Hey Bernie:
So you got the 67, Congratulations! Iím surprised shipping it to Miami got you the best deal. What is it, 5 weeks and counting till it lands in Australia? I hope it is even better then you expect!

Re: Exporting to Australia

Hi Gary, yes got the car and it goes this week to Miami. The better deal fell through as the shopping line discontinued out of Savannah. Customs holds car for up to a week before it leaves and hopefully six to seven weeks to its landing. It has a tracking system so I can keep an eye on its progress. We had to do brake and muffler work to get it roadworthy but is now a goer. Will post pics when it's here.
Cheers Bernie
