When it comes to the unique, the obscure, and the remarkable, there’s no better place to look than the greens of the Pebble Beach Golf Course. Each summer, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance brings about some of the automotive world’s greatest treasures and oddities, and thus it should come as no surprise that it stands as one of our favorite events of the year. It offers a chance to capture the details, facets, and intricacies of cars unlike anything else.
It was just an un-assuming little squareback, sitting in California waiting for a new owner to claim it. The beige wagon wore layers of paint over body panels that had seen a rough handful of decades, but its patina was endearing in a way.

It was more than a year ago that Sebastian Sieberg & Sebastian Zimmermann of SSSZ Photo shared their work on the StanceWorks homepage. The duo brought us a look at the Nurburgring Historic races through their own eyes, and with such beautiful and powerful imagery, we were excited to share. Recently, SS & SZ reached out, eager to share more with the StanceWorks audience.

It’s hard to believe that it’s going on two years now that I’ve owned my FJ62 Land Cruiser. I bought it on a bit of a whim, in need of a new daily driver. I had eyed cheaper 4x4s such as Monteros and Jeeps, with the 60-series Land Cruiser taking a back seat solely due to cost; it was, after all, the truck I wanted most of the lot. However, one within my budget was hidden in the depths of Craigslist, with no info and a misspelled title.
