Check out these strapping classic car-upholstery accessories

Couch straps VW GTI interior

Cars and rock and roll have gone together since the early days. Whether it's Hot Rod Lincoln, G.T.O or a bunch of songs by The Beach Boys, auto enthusiasts were instrumental to the history of the genre. Photography has played a huge role in our hobby as well. Think of the number of cars you know about but only ever see in pictures. A company called Couch definitely sees the connection and creates seriously cool straps and accessories using deadstock automotive upholstery. They even offer a range of wallets and shaving bags, if you're not a rocker or camera buff but love the classic style.

Their products run the gamut of classic cars. They have guitar and camera straps made from the upholstery of an '80s Volkswagen Golf (pictured above), the vinyl trunk liner from a late '60s Ford Mustang, vinyl seats from '80s Mercedes-Benz, a fantastically retro shaving bag from a '70s Jeep Cherokee interior and a lot more.

The deadstock material is the probably best part of the line. Couch finds the leftover fabric from places like auto upholstery shops. It means that no classic cars have to give up their seats to furnish you with a wallet or guitar strap. Even better, you're not putting something around your neck made from material that someone sat on for 40 years - that could get kind of gross. If you're in a band that needs a retro look or just want to take your classic car love with you everywhere, you might want to give Couch a browse.
