I was checking out Motor Trend December 2000 and I saw the prototype steering wheel again. I had forgotten about how great it looks. I wonder what the chance is that it actually had a working air bag. I would love to have one like on the prototype. I wonder if Art Hyde could comment on that steering wheel?

I never saw the prototype steering wheel. But I thought it was just the FR500 wheel. I heard ford didn't use it cause there were airbag deployment issues. I used it in my car anyway. Is this the wheel you are talking about or is it different?

Hey LOK N LOD, is that the FR500 steering wheel in your car? If so, is it much bigger around than the stock wheel? I was thinking of getting one.

Yes....it's an FR500. The wheel is the same diamater around. The difference is the thickness of the grip. There is a VERY noticeable difference between the two and the FR500 feel much sturdier. Plus the perforated leather is a perfect match to the interior. I reccommend the FR500.
