That Car/fiber dash doubles up the interior IMO

Thank you. It's a GM piece that's part of the jet black suede group.

It's a nice bauble. BTW I heard the word bauble for the first time a few weeks ago, my wife mentioned it and I said what's a bauble...

Its a southern slang word for ornament. I never heard it before until I had a 7th grade teacher use it in a sentence. Love that term.

Looks like carbon fiber!!!



BTW, for those young pups who have never seen one, this is a necker *** and it attaches to the steering wheel.

Thanks for posting !!!!!

Just ordered one for the carbon fiber vinyl I installed a few weeks ago. I hunted for one like this but kept coming up empty. NICE find.

Your welcome. About three months ago I contacted this guy because he was selling Z06 and Z51 emblems and I told him he should consider making G/S ones. All of a sudden last week I got an e mail from him with the picture I posted here so I had to jump on it. I warned him I posted it on here and he better start making more.

Yeah, it was for those days BEFORE power assist steering. Sometimes you needed HELP to get the wheel around
