ID this shifter

Post by Attorney Isaiah Loophole on Tue Oct 16, 2012 10:58 am

Picked this shifter up the other day. Just wondering what it is. Its like a Hurst Indy but it is stamped Taiwan on the boot and base but nowhere on the metal have I found a marking. Anyone ever seen one?

Your handle looks different, but base is the same.

Alex they don't know a damn thing about that, too young! lol I've got a few old "Kraco"matic stereos!

Bryce, Eric has some kind of exclusive access to The Samba. He finds shit all the time that ordinary folks like our selves just dream of finding.

You mean they don't remember the under-dash EQ/Boosters from such electronic giants as Sparkomatic, Kraco, Jensen, or Clarion?

Under-dash cassette (or 8-track) add-on players?
8-track to cassette adapters?
Stlllwater Super Kicker speaker boxes?
Record albums skipping for 5 solid minutes on live FM radio?
Upside-down 96 Rock license plates?

Surely you must be wrong!

I'm not freaking wrong, I remember all that and owned some of it and stop calling me Surely or what ever!
