Very generous of you Sheepdog. I don't have the gun that will fit them, but I'm sure someone here will be glad to have them.

Thanks!

Most folks that I know of having a SUV are living in them as they can't afford to drive them any more.

How many of You remember making "floor shift knobs"' out of all kinds of oddball stuff. Beer tap handles, chrystal door knobs, fancy umbrella handles, & all kinds of fancy knick knacks, & accumulated junk. I lathe turned a chunk of bright red plastic one time, with an opening in the top where we installed a little dial type thermometer ! Who knows why !!
I had one I made from a brand new 2 stroke engine aluminum piston with a really high polish, that was just about perfect size. I used it for many years till someone stole it out of My 37 Chevy coupe ! I made a few aluminum ones in a local small foundry, where we made our own casting patterns out of almost anything we wanted. A friend of mine had a fairly big aluminum Eagle's head, that we cast & polished, that looked pretty good in his 37 Ford coupe. Those were "real" floor shift's, that stood about 2 feet high or more. We used to extend the shaft even farther, so the shift knobs could be seen thru the windows, & above the top of the dash from outside the car. Had a friend with a chopped 32 Ford pickup, that You had to reach up quite a ways to grab the shift knob. (a Green & gold "Rolling Rock" Beer tap handle) Way Cool !!!
Oh Yeah, I was there for the whole enchalada !! "Fuzzy Dice", "Moon Discs", "Moon Eye decals", chrome reverse wheels, Flame paint jobs, Model-T coil security systems, multiple engine swaps, etc. I had a little 53 Ford coupe with one of the toughest "Flatheads" around ! Stoplight to stoplight, & sometimes a lot farther, that little Flathead ate 57 Chevy's for breakfast !!

:( Man I could just cry ! :cry:


And just to think, some of these guys never got to see all that !!!

I remember a lot of different shift knobs...made out of que balls, eight balls and stuff.....but my favorite was just a plain old Hurst T-handle I had in a '73 Roadrunner with a 400cid.....850cfm Carter thermoquad.....I still miss that car.....traded it in on a '75 Ford F150.....

Yea, but the roadrunner just didn't go in the deer woods very easy.... :eek:

And to make it worse, the Ford had a 300 cid straight-six....that motor really sucked.....
