    Love seeing Gretsch guitars with old muscle cars, so today, after taking my baby out of hibernation I thought that I'd take a photo of her with my two Gretsch. A 5120 and a 5422, along with my 98 Subaru. As I am a consummate "modder" nothing stays as original. upload_2020-5-22_21-45-37.jpeg

    That blue is for Subaru what orange is for Gretsch. :)

    One day I'll have a cool car... my Gretsch guitars don't pair well with my Honda Pilot.

    Subaru! Made here in Lafayette
    The factory is on Indiana Hiway 38---AKA the Bataan Memorial Hiway. Go figure.

    For tax and shipping purposes, it's considered a "port"....

    The Subaru WRX STI is one of my favorite cars. And I think it's good that you put down towels(?) for your guitars to stand on - I think it's weird to see guitars sitting/lying bare on pavement, grass, dirt, etc. where they could get scratched or dirty..

    While I wouldn't call a WRX a muscle car (pocket rocket, yes) we MINI Cooper S guys were warned to be respectful as one just might embarrass us if provoked.

    The state gives them tax incentives---for over twenty years---not to mention infrastructure upgrades. They really upgraded the nearby railyard.

    Subarus don't sell too well here coz the local dealer is a tool.
