So I've been regularly checking the Pioneer site coz I want a Pioneer Camaro real bad. According to the site info, it should have already been released. http://www.pioneersl...om/products.php Love my Mustang so much I want a Camaro to compliment it!!

Anyone know what the deal is??
Cheers,
Tony.

Tony I think its quite a while before you see the camaro. Highly doubtful it will come this year. Maybe Jules can confirm though,
Thanks

All release dates as listed on the Pioneer website have been delayed. Not sure when the listings on the site will be updated. I think Jules is probably busy working with the production line.

Wasn't there a report that one of the factories in China stopped making cars and so it has been harder to get cars made. A lot of other companies cars are a bit behind schedule as well.

I think rick1776 has some underground slot cave super snooper contacts. I'll bet you a $ he has some news. He pays the piper more than I do.

What you got Doc?

Waiting on some Patto decals to put on the car. Which ones would you like fitted Jules? I reckon the decals should be arriving by early-ish next year. :D

Busy painting some fuzzy dice to hang from the mirror on the purple Z/28. :P

Man that Camaro looks hectic! The 1967 is such a nice shape, can't wait to get one. Looks very much like a Pioneer one too (especially the chassis/wheels/exhaust pipe).

So no confirmation?
Cheers,
Tony.

I'll do my best to circulate some test mouldings so some of you guys can give them a blast. I expect they will handle pretty much like the Mustang. The track might be a couple mm wider at the back.

rick1776, can I make you a sensible offer for the safe return of the Purple Passion wagon? If you don't send it back I'll send the next goodie to Manimmal. He's a good driver, his mom says so.

Colour choice on the pre-production model is nothing short of gorgeous Jules! Any chance of it being actually released in that colour?

And are there plans to release them all as white kits?

Are you the owner of Pioneer brand of slot cars or something along those lines? If so, hurry up and release the damned things! :) :P

Tony.
