SE: the auto show

practical / poetic / persuasive elements of a car show:

practical: security guards keeping everyone in line
practical: signs telling us what to do
poetic: a car with a very unique and unexpected matte finish

poetic: Penny Lane herself, straight from the tire!
persuasive: a HUGE honkin' 'hybrid' plaque on the side of a new escalade. There's no way you can miss this one...
persuasive: but just in case, they tell you in fifteen other places too, including a huge 'hybrid' across the top of the windshield. I think I've got a hunch that this car doesn't run on fuel alone?
persuasive: the car dealers. enough said.
