To put it simply, life has its ups and downs. Each and every one of us is dealt a hand of cards, with some of us landing more advantageous hands than others. As we make our way through the journey of life, it can often seem as though the dealer does his best to do his worst, and it’s those unexpected cards we’re dealt – and how we respond to them – that often wind up defining us most.
For better or worse, it seems we’re always adding to the StanceWorks fleet of vehicles, which now overflows from the shop out into the parking lot, and we presume one of these days our landlord will ask us what on earth we’re actually doing. Nevertheless, we pride ourselves on finding hidden gems buried within the depths of Craigslist, AutoTrader, and the forums too.
The FIA’s Group A died out in my early childhood, leaving the legends largely to physical media – film and print photos – as relics of the past. We all have our favorites when it comes to motorsports, and for me, it’s the factory race cars from the mid 1980s that excite me most. Our latest find from the reels is a look back on 1986’s complete season.
To put it simply, there aren’t a lot of cars that make me smile. By looking at them, I mean. Sure, time spent behind the wheel, with the pedal down and the revs up will almost always lead to a release of endorphins, it’s difficult for a car to evoke an emotion of happiness from its presence alone.
If you were to ask us, we’re tempted to say there’s no better way than to spend a Friday than at the track, especially when it’s on the clock. Luckily, our friends at KW Automotive agreed, hosting what they’ve named the “KW Shakedown” – a private track day for the KW family of employees, dealers, ambassadors, and friends – at the Streets of Willow Springs.
