Chevrolet has been bragging that over 10,000 orders have been placed already on the Camaro range, with hard-top deliveries set to begin in February. Limited official UK sales are widely expected to kick-off in 2010, although GM's troubles in the coming year are likely to affect whether that happens or not.
