Re: Hi from Tasmania
I'm also a fairly recent addition to this site, am in NSW so nice to see so many Camaro owners/fans from outside North America!
Good luck with finding a car, as Steps said take your time and make sure you get the best one you can afford - and get it fully checked over by someone who knows 1st Gens inside out before parting with your $$.
If you're looking to import from the US, make sure you get firm quotes from at least 3 or 4 shipping companies, and check every word to make sure everything you will eventually have to pay has been covered. Before I found my car, I got several quotes - they ranged from $2500/$3000 AUD to around $4500/$5000 AUD. Somewhere in between the "top shelf" and "bargain basement" service should be around $3500, but look out for hidden fees - fuel duty, wharf fees, truck cleaning fees, AQIS inspections, steam cleaning, levy charges for days ending in a 'y', etc etc. Not trying to put you off, the $ is too good to pass up, but some shippers will quote low to get your car on the water - then when it lands on the dock they hit you up with all the extras that you MUST pay to pick up your car (or else wharf storage fees can be applied after 3 days or so off the ship).
Anyway, once you get the car nothing will get the smile off your face, so keep us posted when you get one!!
