Under the Digital Knife – Kevin Trower Re-imagines the Classics

Mike Burroughs

While StanceWorks is home to many facets of the automotive world, it's the obscure and unique that often pique our excitement. Our friend and photographer, Kevin Trower, shares these same interests - however, he takes things one interesting and beautiful step forward. Over the past few months, Kevin has spent his time splicing, blending, merging, and chopping together a collection of photoshopped classics, ranging from vintage Subarus to iconic Cadillacs, each with their own humorous and unique style. As each photo made its way to his personal blog, I found my excitement growing more and more, yearning for the chance to share his creations with our community.

 

 

Each car has received its own set of wheels and a suitable stance, ranging from low-riding land-yachts to poked econoboxes. The massaged classic ads and dated press images culminate into a sort of "visualized day dream" of what we only wish we could get our hands on. Kevin has taken a wider view, toying with cars few acknowledge and fewer love, instead of the run-of-the-mill sports coupes of the '90s through now. Each car is sure to leave you with a smile; photos are worth 1000 words, and photoshopped classic car ads are worth a little bit more. Enjoy.

    Cool to see some Dutch ads. How ironic to see the Nissan Laurel “op eenzame hoogte” (at lonely heights) as it seems pretty low to me..

  • darkyoshi154

    I have the model year newer than the olds wagon in blue!! Aways wanted to see one low so this is great!

  • Jack

    All cars look good when they’re low, even if it’s a very basic model

    One of the best features on S/W yet! Amazing work!

    I have an example of stance working in the real world of my 1967 Autocross Corvair.  See:  http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x425/slrman/67Corvair5_zps531c9cf5.jpg
     
    This car could be driven on the street and frequently was.  It also was autocrossed very successfully for 7 years and was never defeated by an American V-8 Sedan.

  • johnygezony

    I would totally rock that woody wagon. What a gnarly ride that would be

  • doubleoh9

  • PaulWilson1

    Any chance of a Renault 5 GT Turbo one ?

    Fantastic work! Juuuust perhaps worth noting where a large percentage of the wheels used in many of the images is sourced from? Haha, wink wiiink.

  • Kevin
  • Hagen

    The first C32 Laurel is from a Norwegian car magazine. “Autofil”, “Norsk motorveteran” or something like that.

  • z chopper

    a 1972 sunny 1200 sedan would look sweet

  • AndrewAveryMiddleton

    Some good cars there – destroyed… Good thing it’s just photoshop.. Great skills on the Mac though :)
