Welcome to the Finger Lakes! Our theme song:

In a town this size, there's no place to hide
Everywhere you go, you meet someone you know...
In a smokey bar, in the backseat of your car
In your own little house, someone's sure to find you out
What you do and what you think
What you eat and what you drink...

Sunny Manitoba

The Guess Who, Bannatyne Avenue, Winnipeg, 1971.  From Wikipedia:
The album covers and the title track illustrate a transition in band member Kurt Winter's life.
Bannatyne Avenue is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the home city of The Guess Who. The front of the album cover for the vinyl LP has the words "So Long, Bannatyne" above a red Chevy with a Manitoba license plate. In the background there is a building labeled "Bannatyne Apartments". On the back of the album cover is the red Chevy again, but in a residential neighbourhood. The song lyrics include the line:
So long Bannatyne, hello my Chevrier home.
For bonus points: what's the purpose of the wire hanging out of the Chevy's grill? 
Hint: Manitoba.
