2018 Chevrolet Camaro review: Converted for Australia

The Chevy Camaro by HSV isn't the perfect solution for Australia. Naturally, we'd prefer GM just make the damn thing RHD, but it has decided that in this generation it's not viable. As a fallback, this thoroughly developed and even locally crash-tested for ADR compliance solution is instead a better (and cheaper) option than other conversion jobs...
