2. Here is the funky shifter in the Camaro. The manual trans stick has been heated and bent around, which has damaged the chrome finish, and 20 years of service has worn it out. It bolts to the back of the trans and has a rod that goes down to the gear selector. We removed it and tossed it in the trash. The only thing that will make our install easier than yours will be the reverse light and neutral safety wiring. Since our car had an aftermarket shifter, that wiring is already in place.
