I have been making Custom shifter knobs for over 12 years now, ever since Ed" Big Daddy" Roth and I sculpted the large Flying Eyeball together, Ed looked at the sculpture and said to me "you know you should make a smaller shifter knob in the same shape ", and that's what got the ball rolling ( Eyeball that is) so the Flying Eyeball shifter knob was born. Then I wanted to make a skull shifter knob but did not want it to look like any other skull knob out at the time, after some research I realized that there was only one basic skull shape available with no character, I wanted to make something different with Plenty of CHARACTER, my skull knobs were the first to have an open mouth Screamin out "LOOK AT ME".and to have Pistons and Gears Bulging out of the noggins, Poppin Eyes and Brains falling out, Top Hats and so on, Shifter knobs with ATTITUDE, all my designs are ORIGINAL and COPYRIGHTED
I sold many Custom Shifter Knobs on E-bay over the last 12 years and like most things that are original and selling on E-bay everyone got into the act selling Custom shifter knobs styled after mine, they say copying is a form of Flattery so I guess I should be Extremely Flattered to have so many knobs of mine copied, but so it goes, I just wanted to make clear that my shifter knobs have been around for awhile and are original designs.
All the shifter knobs I make are cast in a Space Age resin, airbrushed in Kustom colors and clear coated, others are hand painted and airbrushed and each one is made one at a time, no two are the same each one is given INDIVIDUAL DETAIL.
Kustom "one of a kind" shifter knobs can also be made, have one in mind that you would like to have created ?, drop me an E-mail at email@example.com
Not just shifter knobs, but a work of Art in miniature.
