Re: Shift knob ideas...
Doh, another couple of ideas. A glass ball, or one of those big glass pretend grapes or cherry's that Grandma had on her table in a bunch as decoration. How about the 1 billiard ball to remember the year the Towers came down. One of those dummy pineapple grenades upside down, or just cruise K-Mart for things that could be converted to your use?
My job, basically is to think up Goofy Sh*t.
