For a Mercedes fan, a trip to nearly any European car show is bound to result in disappointment. Beyond the droves of Volkswagens, BMWs, and even Porsches, they’d be lucky to find even just a few examples sporting the famous 3-pointed star. The sample size slims considerably if you decide to pass up anything made in the last 25 years, but there are a few folks out there with reverence for the classics.
Each month, our friends at H&R Springs release a new wallpaper, featuring the latest and greatest from the H&R collection. This month, they’ve honored our Project Focus RS with its own wallpaper/calendar, and fittingly, we’re sharing with you. Simply right-click and save-as, or head to hrsprings.
Over the weekend following a fit of boredom, the StanceWorks crew took to Craigslist, as a competition of sorts to find the cheapest car for sale. Within an hour, we had our hands on a rather nice example of a 2002 Saturn SL2, complete with working AC, cruise control, and power accessories. Truthfully, it makes a great candidate for a cheap commuter, but for the $201 price tag, we knew what had to be done.
When we last saw Evan Brown (of Item-B) and his RX7, almost exactly a year ago, I was heralding its boisterous presence. I try to avoid superlatives, as they tend to lead to trouble and backtracking in the world of cars, but it only took one glimpse of Evan’s car to know that it was, hands down, my favorite build on a Japanese platform. In the past twelve months, that sentiment has only grown, and today, we’re excited to share the latest iteration.
After purchasing the ’84 533i that would become the my Group A tribute build in early July of this year, I sat down with Andrew to decide exactly where to take the project as a whole. I knew what I wanted, large and by far, but a few important details had yet to be ironed out: namely the livery. As far as the 20 or so original Eggenberger Group A E28 race cars, few had liveries that leave a lasting impression.
