If you’re looking to replace your car’s stick shift or trying to expand your collection of options, here are 5 of the best new shift knobs to consider.
When you perform upgrades on your car, it’s often not very noticeable to the naked eye. If you get something done under the hood, no one will see it unless they take a peek or hear it on the road. New callipers? Oh, I barely noticed, but that’s cool.
But your car’s shift knob? That is something even an untrained, non-car aficionado will immediately notice…especially if it’s different from the norm! Here are some shifters that will definitely raise a few eyebrows.
For the hardcore heavy metal fan (or anyone who is obsessed with the undead), this shiny skull shift knob will make your dead, black heart beat mightily in joy. Available in half a dozen colors and shades, this shift knob is made with resin and comes with 3 adapters so its able to fit in almost any manual transmission.
If you’re looking to bring a little bit of luck into your life, look no further than this beautiful golden Buddha eternally encased in a snow-globe like bubble. Its perfectly round shape makes it easy to grip when you’re double clutching (like you should), and hopefully it’ll give you luck by granting all green lights along your path!
Looking to be really different? If so, we’re positive you’ll be the only person in the block with this hilarious beer can shift knob.

Here to protect your car from any potential thieves is this awesome Samurai shift knob, which looks like a sword has been driven deep into your vehicle’s transmission.

Wild West movie fans will fall head over heels in love with this awesome shift knob in the form of a pistol. True to a pistol’s actual size and grip, this shift knob is complete with a faux woodgrain finish, a polished metallic body and, yes, even a working trigger! Although we hope you never have to hear it, this gives a whole new meaning to the dreaded “Your transmission has been shot”. Though we’ll tell you to think this one through, because it may come across even worse than the beer can if you get pulled over.
