Default Replace Shift Knob

Why is it that Saturn had to use a completely different way of attaching the knob!? I want to install an aftermarket knob but most of them are threaded and I don't want to go through a whole long process of cutting the rod and what not. Do you guys know of any knobs that I could use?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

momo shift knobs, or any other shift knob that uses set screws will work nicely.

Ironically, the usual question is how to get it to stay on. I suppose if you can find a way to pull it hard enough, it will come off.

All the rubber fell off of my shifter knob, so I'm left with a metal knob that is jagged, so I need to replace it.
