I picked up this shifter knob on ebay last week and it came in today. It is an actual Billiard ball that the seller drilled out and installed a rubber bushing so it can be used as a shifter knob. I could have picked any ball I wanted, but of course I got the 8 ball. It is friggin awesome! It is heavy, and feels better than any shift knob I have ever owned. It will never show wear (it is a pool ball after all :)) and it looks awesome in my box. I know it seems weird to write up a review on a shifter knob, but this is probably my favorite mod yet!

I am at work, so I will post pics tomorrow when I get home.

with the BSP I bet that looks wicked!!! lets see the installed pics!

I had one of those steering wheel knobs that you could turn the wheel with that was a drilled out 8-ball. Illegal, but looked great on my black pearl Mitsu mini-truck. (with full leopard interior LOL) Fun to drive with too :D

My husband wants the yellow number one just too lazy to order it I guess!

Let us know if you reallllly like it after a week so I can pass the info on. :D

Will do, the cool thing about it is it sits a little higher on the shifter, and seems to put it in better reach. It also has some of the shifter itself showing inbetween the knob and the boot, so it has a cool classic look. I really dig it so far.

He was talking about those things that clamp on your steering wheel like truckers use, like Dew mentioned above.
