So it's not as bad as the nonsensical steering wheel, but the Camaro's shifter is also an ergonomic annoyance. Note how its knob is essentially a ball with its edges chopped off. As such, it doesn't exactly fit well or comfortably in the human hand.

Instead, Mike Magrath instantly identified the person this shifter is meant for ...

See, Lego Man's hands are perfectly shaped for the Camaro shifter. They'd slot perfectly around those chopped edges.

Now, I can approximate Lego Man's hands, but it's just not as effective.
