    WW2 P-40 Warhawk bomb release/gun trigger. Excellent condition. Got it in the mail friday. Been looking for a couple years. Only ever seen two. One was in a museum and not for sale and the other was big money. Going on a 26" shifter, I'm stoked....

    Thought I would take one of my Indy 500 pit badges out of the drawer and stick it in a knob. Took a piece of Olive wood and turned it down and glued a pit badge from 1992 (actually a garage badge but they are commonly called pit badges). 1992 was one of the years Cadillac provided the pace car.

  6. I purchased this way cool knob at GNRS and dusted off the airbrush to see what I could do.. Eleven different shades of pearlescent nail polish later I ended up with this (haven't cleared it yet):

    My old devil (Vincent Price meets Salvadore Dali), recently installed. The horns are worn down enough & are in the right place not to be painful.

    I've had this one for as long as I can remember. The Pittsburgh area guys will dig it the most, since it's one of their ancient breweries. The casing looks similar to some of the other tap handles on this thread, so I'm assuming that the different breweries more than likely utilized the same manufacturer. The casing says "Robbins/ Attelboro, Mass."
