The Camaro was imported before the LHD ban was issued by government in 2000-2001, before that the import policy was very strict [compared to now] and so these where allowed.

Spotted one of the Maseratti's today. It was coming out of its parking spot. So I told my driver to stop and let him come out. So he had to take a right to go to his office and he really floored the car while taking that turn,what a SOUND! . He did a little wheel-spin and took off. Did not follow him as i had take the straight road. Here are the pics. The second on shows him taking the turn.
The first pic is lovely and so is the car.

I am rarely envious of anyone, but the thought "What a lucky guy" popped up in my head the minute I read your post. I can't imagine a better car than the Camaro to use in a place as lovely as Goa. Wow!
