Just to share my other hobby, not car related until Mustang Sally or Hey Little Cobra comes up on the song list, this is a drumset I built last year. Took a year to assemble at a cost that many pay for their Mustangs. Top of the line of everything and I did a color change from the originals to create the effect that I wanted. The drums are old Rogers from the 60's that all came from different drumsets that needed to be refinished. I did not want to take originals in beautiful condition and change them, much like refraining from stripping an original factory paint job on a Mustang that still looks new. I bought one full set that was so nice that I just packed them away and kept searching for more. As you can see I use this kit for a contemporary band at my church (Methodist), my other two kits are used for other purposes.This kit has such a range of sounds and accessories needed for the various types of songs we perform with influences from traditional to reggie to Latin to African to light rock to Holiday music. Never did I expect to be in a church band, and to have so much fun with it too. Like cars and car parts, you never know where you might find something you want or need. The picture was taken at a retreat in Rhinebeck NY with the Hudson River in the background, One year while performing there, I looked out towards the lighthouse and there was Pete Seeger's sloop Clearwater in full sail gliding past the lighthouse.
