Blade Spoiler?

Does anyone know exacly what the blade spoiler will look like on the car? Because, in the little picture from the accessories book it is too hard to see. Is it a spoiler similiar to the RS package, except it just rises up more, or is it supposed to be like the spoilers from the 60's/70's that go straight up? In the picture it kind of reminds me of the spoiler on the Ford Mustang GT500. If anyone konws that would be great because I would like to know exactly what I'm ordering by Oct. 13th, even if accessories and options are not needed at that time. As of now here is what I know I am getting:

2SS/RS Package (Option)
6-Speed Trans / LS3 engine
Rally Yellow w/ Black Rally Stripes Exterior
Tan Leather Interior
20 Inch Polished 5-Spoke Wheels (Option)
Floor Mats (Carpet and Rubber)
Cold Air Intake (Dealer Accessory)
Cat Back Exhaust (Dealer Accessory)

I was just wondering....so you are going with tan leather inside of the yellow...I wonder how that would look, I figured with the black racing stripes that you would go with black leather, just my opinion.

I really want to see what the spoiler will look like. I do not like the stock one or the big "wing" one. I'm hoping hte blade is better then both of them...

I originally was going to go with Black Leather, but it gets too hot in the summer, in my opinion. So, I am convinced that Tan Leather is better for me. I've seen many Vette's, Porsche's, Ferrari's with Tan Interiors in Yellow Exteriors. Now, granted I will have Black Rally Stripes, but an interior's color only really matters when you have a convertible because than everyone can see the interior and exterior at the same time.

But, you bring up a good point. So, hopefully it doesn't look too goofy, but if I see a picture of the tan and don't like it, I'll opt for the Black Leather. But for now I'm planning on not sweating my @ss off in my new Camaro!

So I take it the Blade Spoiler is the more pronounced lip spoiler in the back with the stripes closer together? Pretty nice, I'm sure that's what we all wanted: a taller version of the stock one. We know all we really want is a reincarnate of the 69' spoiler. ;D

The Blade stands too upright for my taste. I'll be sticking with the stock spoiler.

As soon as I can see it on the car I will make my decision. Until then it will be the stock spoiler for me!

Yes, but it's angle is more upward rather than swept back.

I prefer the swept back look more.

Seeing it on the Camaro may change my mind, but I have to wait for that.

Some of the previous posts are incorrect. The blade spoiler is the one that is on the two pedestals and sits a few inches above the deck lid. Its shown in the accessories thread, top left picture in the brochure.The lip spoiler is the one that mounts directly on the rear edge of the deck lid. According to the designers at Indy, they don't share the same mounting holes. If you order your car with the lip spoiler and want to change it to the blade spoiler after delivery, you will either have extra holes showing or you will have to order a new deck lid to go with the blade spoiler.

No. This is not correct. See the attached pic. the blade spoiler is clearly similar to the previous first gen spoiler and is attached to the deck lid.
