Hurst shifter option?

Whats the deal on this option, anybody hear anything yet? I was at my local dealer this morning asking about it but he's saying they don't know for sure yet. He said their putting oders in for this option, but it's not showing up on the build sheets. Are they still gonna offer this now or is on the back burner again? And I'm happy to say my local dealer came through and price matched my other offer! It goes to show you how important it is to have everything in writing. I walked in and asked for my saleslady, but she wasn't there so another one asked if they could help. I asked if they could match a price and told him what the other dealer quoted me. First thing he said was...how could they sell it for less then what they paid for it? Needless to say I pulled out the dealers offer and showed him what I was quoted, I'll have to talk to my boss he says. The boss comes out and says...I'll match it! So my business will be staying local rather than 60 miles away. I'm ordering tomorrow, so you can tell I'm happier than a pig in....well you know,lol!

TPW 8/23 is the first week for KAE (Hurst) and I hope to be one of the first from the factory.

Well thats good to hear! I'm ordering my camaro tomorrow and it would suck if I ordered the shifter and it didn't come with the car.

the only bad thing is..

the aftermarket short throw and the factory option are different,

the factory option looks just like the stock shifter but with the hurst logo on the side.

i was kinda hoping it was going to look like the aftermarket version with the white ball so i could change out the knob.
