Whalen Shift Knobs

I tried a BMW chrome shift knob. Retained heat beyond belief. I had a Whalen metal knob on my '05 MCS. Never retained heat like the BMW knob. I had Doug Whalen--Whalen Machines-- make me a #3 billiard ball(2 1/4" diameter) for my MCS. Was great.
Just received a fire engine red knob (2 1/16" diameter) which matches my Crimson Red perfectly. Love the feel and it looks great. Sorry no photos. Technically challenged. Check out Doug's website. Whalenmachines.com.

Totally off topic, is your car's name supposed to be Snoppy? I'm thinking it's Snoopy and your wife's is the Red Baron but I thought I'd ask. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
