I'm hearing through channels there are 72 onboard a ship headed to the US as we speak.... assuming nothing has changed that means Benicia, CA will be seeing some new SS off-loading soon....

I live about 30 miles from Benicia. AHHHH, yes the great big offloading area where all the cars from Asia are offloaded. Know exactly where that port is!!!! OK, dz28, what is the name of the ship???? I beleive shipping itinerary is a matter of public knowledge. How long would I camp there??? It gets foggy and chilly in the mornings over there. It is on my route to Sonoma(Sears Point) raceway whenever there is an event at the track. Need info---keep it coming!!!!!

I know Benicia very well. I used to work for GM in Overseas Distribution Corp. Benicia was one of the ports I managed. That was back in the mid to late 90's... love that town and Walnut Creek as well since I probably stayed there no less than 30 times in 4 years. No name on ship, my contacts are engineers and have little interest in logistics. I am keeping my ear to the ground though and live five minutes from GM's Milford Proving Grounds. Once production versions start showing up in town I'll snag some pictures of them running about town!

thanks for the update :D
finally we get even close to seeing these in person in the U.S. and not just at a track but on the road, in dealerships, etc

I've seen them but all so far have been engineering prototypes. Saw several 2014 Camaro's in Milford at lunch today including a convertible. They are always running around town and many of the MPG folks commute east right past my sub. I'm always seeing interesting cars/trucks running through my streets...

Lucky! I guess asking for "spy" shots might not happen

Maybe! Still have a contact or two out in Benicia.... I'm also following the Benicia Herald that sometimes posts ship passage.... you just never know where the information may come from....

I actually saw an SS on Woodward (Michigan) two weeks ago, silver. Looked great in person, sounded pretty good with a mildly aggressive takeoff from the light with a driver in his early 50's or so.

If I am reading this correctly, production started and 72 cars are on a transport in the Pacific ocean. That information matches up with another thread:

I was at Pocono Raceway yesterday and stopped by the Chevy hauler and asked about the release for this car and was told sometime in September. Take it for what you will but at least that's something.

sure seems like that's solid info, it's timed right with the original availability date everyone was familiar with, which was just a date range and not to a specific day

E-mailed my dealer yesterday if there was any new "inside scoop" on our cars. He has one on order for himself also. He said "Next week I'll know more". Let's hope so!!!
