G & R Mufflers

My flight landed in San Diego in the morning and I hopped in the rental and headed north to meet up with the guys from Rare Visions.  They were heading in from the desert and we joined up in Lake Elsinore, CA at a muffler shop.  As I suspected, G & R Mufflers isn’t your ordinary repair shop.


Here, Gary Koppenhaver has created a family of muffler people, playing the guitar, golfing, and just primping.  He eschews the notion that he is a folk artist, even though UCLA art classes have visited to critique his work.  “I just do this because it is fun.  I don’t really think of it as art.”
