Hello,

There's just something about a classic wagon, especially a clean yet potent example such as this classic black-on-black Nova. Whether it's a trip to the grocery store or the local car show, this bad boy is sure to garner some appreciation.

How can I interpret “garner” here? How is it different from "earn"?

OED:

Garner:

To collect or deposit as in a garner, to make a store of. to garner up, to garner away: to store or lay up, to put away.
