The new steering wheel actually looks really good in person and is more comfortable and user friendly than the older design. One of the biggest criticism of the old wheel was that it looked and felt awkward. Guess what, it sold almost 250,000 copy's, all attached to Camaros. It will sell.

Thanks everyone, I'm EXCITED! G, I am so jealous that you got to take all these pictures of my car before I even get to see it! Friday can't come soon enough I've been waiting a year and a half for this car, so I'm gonna put some miles on her over the weekend

I've had steering wheels that weren't my absolute favorites before but it's not like that affected my experience with the vehicle in any way. I figure if I can't appreciate the overwhelmingly positive and fun qualities the Camaro has, but instead get hung up on a steering wheel I would have designed a bit differently, I've got bigger problems to deal with.

Jeez, everyone, relax.

And I've never seen so many people complain about a steering wheel. I drove a Cruze and wasn't a huge fan of the wheel. But then I don't buy cars because of steering wheels, so I figure I'll get used to it and it really can't/shouldn't be that big of a deal. I've had steering wheels that weren't my absolute favorites before but it's not like that affected my experience with the vehicle in any way.

I'll be way too busy flooring the gas pedal, feeling the wind through my hair, and drifting around corners to even remember the steering wheel's there!

Especially if you get an SS, you won't notice the steering wheel after you press the gas pedal.

Camaro5 family, I'd like to officially introduce Lyssa, named after the goddess of rage and fury, on her way to becoming a fierce firebreather.

From what we've been able to determine, she is the first 45th in California. She was built on 8.4, delivered to the dealer on 8.15 at 2:00 am during the night drop, and will be delivered to me on 8.19 at 10:00 am by the wonderful Tommy Edrisi at Selman Chevrolet (thank you, Tommy!) Thank you, also, to Becky - I could not have made it through with my hair intact without her to ease my anxiety with her status updates and calm words of wisdom!

Over the next few days, Lyssa will undergo a special new car prep/detail. Details by Pic will be cleaning her up, Chips Away will be installing her clear bra, and We Do Windows will take care of that clear glass and give me some protection and privacy.

My very special 45th will be highlighted in several install features as she gets upgraded for this year's SEMA show, with these articles to be followed by a full piece later on. To all the purists out there, the original parts will be retained if there is ever a need to put her back to stock.

To everyone who helped with the car or who helped me emotionally, thank you so very much. I've been waiting for this car since March 8th of last year, when my confirmed one-of-a-kind, loaded, pristine, low-mileage 35th SS Convertible was rear-ended at a high rate of speed while I was stopped on the freeway. After 18 months of driving a four-cylinder with an automatic, I can't wait for some horsepower mated to a manual transmission!

My builder has assured me she's gonna be "a sweet ride" and I can't wait to see her - finshed or not!

But I agree, I am soooooooooooooo excited to see the final version.

Oh, BTW Camaro5 family, my wheels are so amazingly awesome... and sexy. I never thought I'd say this about a wheel, but they make me think nasty thoughts! I can't wait until they get on the car so I can show them off.

If you look closely, the following pics are from inside the trunk. So it would be safe to assume that the trunk was popped in preparation to open it.
If you look at the other back end pics they line up perfect.
