Secret NYC Subway Station

Monday, November 8th, 2010

The NYC City Hall Subway station is a hidden architectural gem that has been closed for decades. The station was built in 1904 and features tall arches, brass fixtures, and amazing skylights. Even though the station has been closed it is still being used as a turnaround point for the #6 train. Next time you are in NYC jump on the #6 train and instead of getting off it’s last stop, Brooklyn Bridge, stay on the train till it reaches it’s turnaround point at City Hall. More pics after jump…

BMW Classics Private Collection

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

BMW Classic is located close to the BMW Museum in Munich. BMW Classic was created to archive, restore, and preserve the company’s 90 year history. Earlier this year they opened their doors to the public allowing access to old vehicle new parts and their restoration services. Hidden in the back warehouses of BMW Classic is an amazing collection of the company’s past greats. This private museum has never been shown to the public but a source at autoblog.com was granted access. We are big BMW fans at EP, this collection showcases the diversity of their great designs over the years. The orange Jager CSL is drools, from the body flares, to the duck tail, not to mention the BBS wheels…wow! More after the jump…

Vintage Porsche Ads

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Came across these amazing Porsche Ads from the 80′s. Lovely use of typography and image perspective which visually gives a sense of speed. The ads are fun and playful, a stark contrast to the yuppie teutonic image of porsche today. Cheeky slogans & imagery for the flashy buyers, detailed descriptive fine print for the engineering types. A nice homage to the brand since many purists consider the water cooled 993 series 911s the ultimate porsche. More after the jump…
