    Steve,

    Do you want to get rid of your stripped knob?

    If so PM me.
    Thanks.

    Since these are so hard to locate, have you considered using a Heli-coil to restore the threads and re-use your shift knob?

    I was looking for a replacement OEM knob for a couple of years until my sister totaled her Jaguar coupe. I was going to grab the shift knob off the Jag as a memento for her -that was until I discovered that it fit PERFECTLY on my Z. Woodgrain and real nice! She forgave me later - much later.
