Pep Boys parts off the shelf in my Maro... Hurst Short Throw!

Ok, So today I had a Hurst Short ThrowShifter and the gauge pack console installed in my ride. I was pleased with the install and the feel of the shifter, However I was struggling with that ugly @$$ white ball thats too damn small for my hand. I walked into Pep boys to get some new micro fiber cloths for my ride. You all know you have to wash and wax your Camaro after a new Mod. Thats when I saw a brushed aluminum Hurst T-Handle on the shelf. I had to get it, for $35 bucks what did I have to lose. I love this thing, and it makes this short throw pop. Pep boys though, Really! All I can say is Thanks.

I didn't realize they still sold car parts last time I was there it was go-carts, scooters and quads. Good score looks good.

That is awesome. In high school I had a 82 Celica with one of those.

Make sure you some kind of rag around to place over it when you park it on hot sunny days. That aluminum gets really hot.

That is awesome dude, I remember having that shifter handle on my high school ride (an old Datsun 510 4 speed) I loved having that handle. I imagine if I had a manual Camaro, I would be looking for that same handle for sure.
I am however looking for the stirrup style shifter conversion for my Auto, it is reminiscent of the one I had in my 68 Camaro

Just something different!

Thanks Guys! When I saw the T-handle it reminded me of the B&M shifter I had in my 64 Nova! I love putting in an old school touch. This shifter feels right banging through the gears!

Check EBay - I bought one a couple of years ago for around $18. They're pretty nice.
