Next week automotive companies and enthusiasts travel from around the world to convene in Las Vegas for SEMA. As we near the last few days before the big show, there are still builders frantically rushing to complete the last finishing touches on the impressive show cars that line the countless rows of the convention center.
Practice makes perfect, and good things come to those who wait; two common phrases that hold frustratingly true. Jaze, the owner of Broadway Static and the not-so-subtle green Felony Form wide-body E36, is all too familiar with those words of wisdom. In regard to his car, it’s not his first rodeo with an e36 BMW; he previously owned an rather nice 1JZ swapped 318is. It was a car that anyone should be proud to own, but Jaze wanted to go a little bit further this time around.
With most of the show season behind us and the days growing shorter, it’s time to look forward to the fall and winter months that will be spent in the garage tinkering on the builds that will roll out on the streets next spring. I’ve been hard at work in the studio working on the most recent run of Lowly Gentlemen gear which I’m pleased to announce is now available. At the forefront of the fall line are 3 new shirt designs in the StanceWorks Lifestyle collection.
Nic and Stephanie Foster’s E21 deserves every bit of recognition it can muster up. As one of the most admired E21s on the planet, there’s no shortage of folks seeking to photograph their build; however, Nic and Steph are selective people. When media does surface, be it photos or video, there’s never a doubt that the quality will be unparalleled. The team at MACHETE is the most recent to have their take on the car, and it goes to show that only the best work with the best.
The team at Air Lift Performance sent us to Cleveland, Ohio, to visit Street Machinery, a shop that has earned worldwide rapport for its world-class hot rod and truck builds. Alongisde our old friends, JJ Larson and Matt Crane from AWOL.TV, we took to our cameras. Boris’s truck plays off of the ultimate 2-faced style; the exterior’s patina is earned and as rich as they come – it’s what fans of the style spend years hunting down.
