Well, here is a collection of absolutely wonderful machinery from the 1970’s and 1980’s that I really hanker after.
Saloons, Wagons, coupes….all collected together and driven on track, on roads and just cruising. The Mercedes with the surf board on top particularly appeals…I have an old W124 estate – I think it might succumb to that look!

October 12, 2013–January 20, 2014
Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed marks the North Carolina Museum of Art’s first design exhibition, exploring the history and development of the Porsche lineage from the 1930s to the present day.
Featuring more than 20 automobiles, Porsche by Design presents cars owned by Ralph Lauren, Steve McQueen, and Janis Joplin, as well as the one-of-a-kind ‘Panamericana’ concept car on loan from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
Car lovers will appreciate the rarity and engineering genius of the automobiles on view. Art lovers will be intrigued by Porsche design and the connections that can be drawn with other works of art. All will gain a deep appreciation for hallmarks of the Porsche marque: beauty, artistry, technology, and innovation.
A great little video showcasing all the iconic Porsche 911 models over 50 years and ending with a ‘birthday song’ using the delicious ‘flat six’ engines as the instruments….nice.
