Yesterday I swapped out the small plastic 'stocker type' knob for the Volksrod knob. What a difference! Look and feel are great, and I swear that she shifts easier too. Fantastic work John!

Here is number 67 in my 1967 bus. It has already been used for over 100 miles and many shifts, and it feels and looks perfect! It even got here in time for my first camping trip with my bus.

Yeah, but you can install it and sit and make engine noises as you shift. (Sure, tell me that no one else has done this. )

The final four shift knobs that have been ordered and paid for are going in the mail tomorrow. These are the ones with the oddball EMPI threads and stuff.

I have one more that was just ordered recently that I need to assemble and got in the mail.

That makes 34 out of the 101 claimed. It also means that I got to include a check for $775 in with the knob that is going to Steve. That is the donation money from the sale of each knob so far.

Thank you all for helping me to help Steve keep this place open.

It also means there are still 67 available! Available number are:

009
010
011

Really cool to see these installed in some Volksrods. Glad everyone is liking the way the knob looks and feels in the hand.

Got mine today John, thanks.

My daughters now want one for their bugs. Plus, I need one for the DC.

So, I would like to reserve three more numbers - thread size to follow.

11

72

23

Well... I got a notification from the postal office regarding a package two days ago.. Could not remember what I had ordered lately... As we live at the summerhouse during summer I forgot about it and pick it up before we went back to the summerhouse.. Today I realized that it must be this package and now I have to wait until monday before I can pick up the package!!

I've got mine 😊

Great work John 👍👍

If Keith doesn't take #72 I'll take it for my Baja Champion...

I'm still thinking of other numbers that I could put to good use 😮

Is 42 or 37 still available? I think the Fasty needs one now since the bug has the matching set (hood ornament and shift knob).

I spose I'd better get my matching hood emblem/ornament number, #26.

My shifter is an Empi Trigger Shifter.

I got the 099 Knob Last week evidently... Somehow it got "Stored" without me knowing it arrived. I found it in a stack of boxes Last Night. So I opened it and Took a Peek... That's Some really nice Craftsmanship. I'm Way more than Impressed. I think the price may be a bit low for this item. These should have been 100 bucks each. I'll Up My game when I re-Up my Forum Contribution Gotta at least Double my Donation.

Thank you so much for a First rate Product.
