"You can have henna color you want,....as long as it's blue"

The first I heard of Subaru was when a 10th Grade biology classmate told us his dad worked at a Subaru dealership.

You don't make anything but the best in anniversary trim. That's how this works.

The only color more conservative is grey. That's barely blue at all.
