Searched JNC and was suprised to find no signs of s gear knob thread.

In my opinion the choice and rarity of the gearknob in your JNC can be just as important as the Nardi or Personal you choose.

I love the extreme to the exquisite and will happily trawl 100's of pages on yahoo.jp for the right one.

This is one I got for my c130 Laurel

Image

We even found one with a Maneki Neko inside for my girlfriends Starion project.




Many have flowers..

Image

Image

Image

Some are just in diamond or crystal styles...


Image

Image

Or glitter...

Image


Many now even have 3D designs lasered into them...

Image

Litterally hundreds of choices from a rare wooden Skyline original to a foot and a half long Bozo eye poker. I've even seen some sell for the price of a set of wheels :shock:
A simple search for a gear knob can turn into the search for the holy grail but to find the Shangri La its often a road worth taking :wink:

They do ones for autos too, I'll try and find one I know of, a flower type but in a T bar shape.

What and where do you search for these gear knobs on yahoo japan?

I find it's a very hard website to circumnavigate and I can't find any!

Thanks :D

Those two geisha rule.
Would dig something like this for my truck.
I've tried to search yahoo jp for things before, but I can't read japanese and most pages wont go through translator.
If any members are willing to help out with it, that would be awesome...

Copy and paste this into the search box: シフトノブ which stands for shift knob and click the search button.

I found by adding: 水中花 which stands for Suichuka (i have no idea what that means) you will narrow the search to only knobs that look like the ones above.
