It’s easy to feel removed when you skim the pages of the latest car magazine, scroll through the most recent blog posts, or watch as famous builders share their work in the viral videos that make their way around the internet. The budgets seem endless and the shop space dwarfs the suburban garage that your build has been relegated to. They seem to collect piles of parts beyond your wildest dreams and build cars with no bolt left unturned.
The biggest lie any true car enthusiast will tell themselves is that they will “keep it simple” or “leave it alone this time.” Four years ago, I purchased a grey-market 1986 BMW 525e, and it was my only car and daily-driver. The plan was to just do wheels and a drop… “stay conservative,” I told myself.

Older cars just seem friendly and inviting. You’ll end up deep in conversation with passers-by as they reminisce about how they had a friend or relative who once had some similar car when they were a kid.

Dont Miss: The 2009 StanceWorks Cross-Country Road Trip – Part I
We were three days into our all-but-agonizing road trip. Rife with troubles and issues, Andrew Sylvia and I had our fingers crossed that from Odessa, Texas, on, we’d have smooth sailing. Our sights were set on Tucson, AZ, to visit Nic and Steph Foster, our first true “stop” of the trip. With 8 hours of driving ahead of us, and wanting to make an early arrival, we were up and on the road at 4:00am.
