We and the fellas at Drifted have been talking a good while about the idea of working together in creative ways that could not only help each community grow but to bring about some great collaborations. It’s with this in mind, that we are proud to announce Drifted joining the StanceWorks Syndicate.

So it’s March going into April out in Orange County, California. Supposedly it’s considered the rainy season…. yeah, we can’t tell.

It’s been a mellow week in California, running between various car meets and taking in all that the car community has to offer here. Between the sunny weather, proximity to the beaches, and the prevalence of car enthusiasts, it’s hard to beat an environment like this. It really gets the motivational juices flowing and makes you excited to spend days and nights in a garage getting your car ready for the next meet.
This past Sunday, despite ominous skies and rumors of rain, over 150 cars turned out to welcome Fifteen52 to the west coast. With cars coming from as far away as Seattle and Mexico, the welcoming committee turned out in full force to enjoy coffee and donuts over discussions on cars and the upcoming show season.
Tonight, coolant, oil, and ATF will spill onto the floor. Sparks will fly as cutoff wheels wear themselves away to their own demise. Grease and grit will work their way under our fingernails as we do whatever it takes to build a car and send it screaming through the night as fast as we can, as loud as we dare make it.
