Cindy "Crash" Raschke
August 20, 1967 to February 27, 2017
We are sorry to say that our very talented friend of many years passed away earlier this year, so we will no longer be selling her hand painted shift knobs, the last of the knobs will be on display in our offices.
If you happen to be one of the lucky ones to own one of the "Crashstones", her one-of-a-kind hand painted resin shift knobs, then I suggest you hold on to it and treasure it dearly. We are opening up a Gallery Page dedicated to the knobs she painted and ask you please to send us a pic of yours either on or off your vehicle. send to [email protected]
Years ago we asked "Crash" Cindy Raschke, a really great artist to take a crack at painting some of our knobs. Not just any great artist. She was an insanely great artist. The result was an exclusive series called, "Crash-stones".
Like any of our custom painted knobs, they were sanded, primered and prepped in-house. But that's where the similarities ended. Because only Crash could Crash a shift knob.
The detail work on each of these beauties was flat out unbelievable. The sheer amount of colors in each individual knob boggled the mind.
One look and you knew you'd got yourself a functional work of art. For either your car's shifter or to keep on your shelf.
Either way it was a little masterpiece straight outta the wonderfully warped sensibilities that was Central Texas' very own, CRASH.
