A beautiful warm autumn day for visiting the North Carolina Art Museum in Raleigh, North Carolina. The special exhibit until January 20, 2014 is the Porsche By Design: Seducing Speed. I took some photos with my little Canon Powershot and thought I'd share.

All cars were in one building except for Janis Joplin's Porsche. It was in the regular art building with paintings, sculptures, tapestries and such, because it is a work of art.

Interesting. I love the culture clash in the last photo of the car in the forefront and the classic icon towards the back.

You know, I have never been particularly fascinated by cars, no matter how well thought of a particular brand or model is. Cars are transportation and my Toyota Corolla will get me to my destination just as fast as the Porche, if both are following the speed limit. Having said that, for some reason, that last photo of the cream/yellow model is "speaking" to me. I love the color and the style. What is it about that car???????

I think has the classic, clean lines like a vintage straight razor...no fuss, no frills, just practical.

I'm just catching that. Before you get the the car there is the aisle off to the right with El Greco. I think the Janis Joplin car would have went well there as well.
