The nostalgia junkies at Gennie Shifter are making it possible to detail your engine compartment the same way you personalize your interior. The company's new skull air cleaner toppers offer a custom touch akin to some of Gennie's shifter knobs. The toppers are made from cold cast resin and finished with hand-painted details. There are four designs to choose from-Top Hat, Biker, Demon, and Celtic-each available pre-drilled to fit on 1/4-20 or 5/16-18 air cleaner studs. Tapered adapters are also available to provide extra clearance for finned air cleaners. For more information, contact Gennie Shifter at (877) 7-GENNIE; www.gennieshifter.com.
