Oh, yes! Notcot is a fine site. Just an aggregate of design and interesting art. From that page:

"If there was any question that air-cooled Porsches are having a moment, today’s Luftgekuhlt (german for air-cooled) proved it without a doubt. Pulling into Vernon (the city’s crest says “Exclusively Industrial”) amongst the quiet empty warehouses on a Sunday morning, the streets are filled with Porsche coupes… parked all around the Modernica warehouse for blocks, and driving around hunting for parking. It seemed like a lot of Porsches outside the event… as soon as you step INSIDE, there are literally hundreds of them - gorgeous shiny curves in a rainbow of colors. And for every car there are about a dozen people and probably a dog and a toddler too. The crowd was HUGE! And beyond gawking at all the cars, getting to know the vintage porsche community (cars and porsche specialists came from around the country - and beyond!)… Modernica gave everyone free reign to wander the workshops and warehouses!

When Shawn first told me about the event - as soon as i heard Porsche and Modernica and Deus Ex Machina, and every Porsche fanatic we knew were coming together… AND limited edition products specially for the event… i was in. In the Dabs Myla building at the Modernica factory, there was a pop up shop filled with Porsche parts, limited edition Porsche/Modernica Eames Chairs, Deus Ex Machina t-shirts, posters being screen printed live, stunning products from Discommon Goods and more… This Luftgekuhlt is the third and largest event yet. All three have been in LA - can’t wait to see where they decide to hold it in 2017!

Take a peek at the experience and details on the next page!"

Thanks, just a little cautious when links are provided without context

Some beautiful cars there!

Wow! Such great images! I wish I could have been there for that. I'm about as big a fan of Modernica products as Porsche. Having a mid-century-modern theme at my house, I have several of their pieces, the latest one I transported in my Boxster:




For many years, they were the official supplier for the Herman Miller Eames collection and are still considered more true and accurate than the examples produced by Herman Miller themselves.

Thanks for the link!
