There has been no official date released at the moment. I wouldn't expect one before next year (calender year 2006).

Keep working on him to get the standard! Way more fun, especially for a roadster!

I said no official news yet, and pointed out thsi thread. Anyone have any new news?

uh-oh, can you wait for an order to be built an shipped? Takes a while. Best we've seen was 2 months, but most take a lot longer. GL

Probably, we do have another car, a Yukon, and the one that's on it's last leg is a 1992 Pontiac Firebird, what can we say, GM all the way!
