I just received an email with this latest shift knob from UUC. I'm not sure how I feel about it. Not sure if to get it or not. Why does this car have so much aftermarket support?:banghead: :D

I was just about to start a new thread about this. I wonder if those rubber inserts remove?? :hmm: That's the only thing I don't like about it.

A little too "not Caddy" for me.

Be glaaad you don't have a Mustang!!!


But I prefer the V's knob to this one, even though the V's could be larger.

From what I read the rings are there to keep your skin off the stainless steel when it's real hot.

I like the looks of it, but haven't made up my mind whether or not to purchase one.

I like the GTO knob also. I should have gotten around to doing that mod also.

The poll asks if I would buy such knob, but I don't see a price anywhere. Am I missing it?

I just looked on their site http://www.uucmotorwerks.com/. They are asking $139.

The shaft on the knob looks WAY too long. :ill:

The shaft on the knob looks WAY too long. :ill:It looks long but installed it's actually shorter than the factory knob on the UUC shifter.

I think the reason it looks long is because the boot does not come up on the shifter.

Sorry, looks too much like a male "unit" for me. I would pass.

Now Reed, on the other hand... :lildevil:

I went to UUC's web site. I like the RK5 knob. To bad they don't make it for the V.

I'm not a big fan of the knob, MY VOTE GOES FOR THE MONARO GTO KNOB,
alot cheaper too

THE uuc is probably heavier and better for shifting though, just like the momo shifters

I think the ladies might like this knob more then most guys here would. On the other hand, this just might attract the ladies, much like Reed has been able to. :p

Does the word "Fugly" come to mind?

My vote goes for lastss aluminum knob (this UUC knob is strikingly similar......).

This UUC knob is a little to flashy for me, almost looks like it was bought at AutoZone. Just not my cup of tea.

My wife said "you should get that!" Then I explained it was for the car. She said "nevermind".

Shift knob is just about last on my list of mods. When I finally get to the last thing on my list, I still wouldn't get that one.
