The ones I've seen have orange lenses in the taillights. Still looks weird compared to the US versions.

The guy pictured near the burnt orange Camaro is Aussie living legend, Kevin Bartlett, the racer who brought a 2nd Gen Camaro to Oz to race in our premier motorsport category.

Some might remember images of his Ch 9 (or some say Ch 6 Camaro )...

so many marking lights on that car. right hand drive would be so weird getting used to. would be cool to have one to add to a collection though.

I myself don't know if I would ever want to even try driving a RHD vehicle.

It's defintely weird, when I worked at the BMW factory I got to drive a lot of the cars from the waiting area to the shipping trucks and we have a few English and Japanese models at the time, it takes some time to get used to shifting a manual with your laft hand. I just can't steer with my right hand, I always use my left to steer.

A friend's father had a RHD Jeep Wrangler that he delivered the mail with. I drove it once, and was surprised that it really wasn't any different. This was an automatic, which certainly simplified things, but it really felt no different other than a different viewing perspective.

i had a buddy who converted a civic to rhd. it was pretty crazy looking. he was good at driving it. he said it took alot of getting used to. but the hardest part was getting used to entering the car on the passanger side.

I had a RHD Cadillac for about a week to do some testing once. It was actually not that hard. The only thing I kept doing was hitting the wipers instead of the turn signal, since they switched side on the stalks.

It is kind of fun to look over at drivers to your right and pretend that there is nobody driving. Plus, it is really wierd since you are so close to them. Good times!
