And What a great way to recycle a piece of American Automotive History!

I am trying a few new things for the Guys in our Lives....
I found this Wooden Car Shifter Knob at a Swap meet and Drilled the center to hold this Corvette Paint insert. Very cool metalic colors to this Corvette paint from the Bowling Green Plant.

* Not sure on the wood- went I cut into it for the inlay it smelled sweet and was Reddish in color, so it does have a darker stain on it
* 2 3/4 inches tall - 1.8 inches diameter at top
* 3/4 inch at the base
* Has Metric Threads And an Aluminum Base, so it can be retooled to fit a smaller shaft.

I personally Hand cut the Oversprayed Car paint, so each piece is One of a Kind. This piece turned out really Cool and does not have to be used as a Shifter...would make a great paper weigh.

I purchased the paint rough from a Gentleman that I met at the Carlisle Corvette show last year....he actually worked in the Bowling Green Plant and took home some of this "industrial waste" and made knife handles & letter openers out of it...we got together and I have purchased box lots of rough from him over the years.

A Great Holiday present for the Car Enthusiast in your family!!
