Like Shifting With a "Geisha's Ceremonial Dildo"

We're headed to JCCS this weekend, and my hand-made bosozoku shift knob just came in the mail today nearly a month after it was ordered.

It's ridiculous, of course, but it's also colorful and fun, and with no stickers, wings, neon, randomly applied plasti-dip, stick-on chrome vents, demon camber, orange wheels or other tacky garbage anywhere to be found, the Mean Mommy Wagon could otherwise easily be accused of taking itself too seriously.

My wife says it's like shifting with a "geisha's ceremonial dildo." I can't top that, folks.

  1. I want a knob like that. It's ricey, but in like a classy sort of way, like getting bombed on sake while touring the Imperial Gardens and puking in a garbage can next to the hot-tea vending machines.

    Where'd you get it?

    1. Haha!! Elegant, yet trashy.

      I ordered it from mr_grip on Instagram--they're made to order and not cheap (this one is his shortest model and was $80 shipped), but quality is nice. Just be prepared to wait nearly a month.

      If you order one send me a pic!

  2. I used a Dogfish Head tap handle as the shift knob in my mustang for a little while. It rattled too much and the length pretty much defeated the purpose of my short-throw kit.

    1. Silly shit like that is kind of fun for a while. I thought I'd swap this out pretty quickly and reserve it for cars-n-coffee and the occasional laugh, but it's actually really functional.
