We hope this finds you comfortably relaxed following a filling Thanksgiving meal with family and friends. With the holiday season upon us, we’ve restocked our shelves with StanceWorks shirts, stickers, and license plate frames. The Pentagon stickers have returned and our US plate frames are waiting to find their way onto StanceWorks cars. The Lowly Gentlemen have discounted the prices of all goods for the weekend.
At first glance, it’s impossible to understand what makes Ollie Young’s E36 one of the most impressive feats of perseverance and ambition I’ve yet to witness. Its first impressions insist upon justification, and moreover begs the question – what makes this truly torn-apart E36 different from any other drift missile out there? The answer, however, lies in the subtlety hiding behind the garish (skin? Damage?).
With each new article comes a new story, often entirely unique. From the car to the owner, each presents a story that tells of what is often a lifelong love for automobiles – I find myself prodding each owner with questions, inquiring about the idiosyncrasies that define each car’s uniqueness and history. My favorite question of all, however, is about the owner.
It was a 3:00am wake-up call for Super Lap Battle 2013. Andrew and I had been up late the night before, cutting, weeding, and masking sponsor stickers: VAC Motorsports, Swift Springs, KW Suspension, Motorsport Hardware, Avus Autosport, and most exciting for us, StanceWorks as well. The event marked our first true endeavor as StanceWorks into the world of Motorsports as a team, and our ’97 M3 had to look the part for the big day.
Earlier this year, we had the opportunity to create one of the most unique StanceWorks articles to date. Gavin Haywood sank more time and effort than imaginable into re-creating the perfect VW MK1 – in full 3D. His detail work continues down to the unimaginably minute, including the plastic stampings on the taillight housings. It’s an article you don’t want to miss, and it’s time to honor such a creation as a StanceWorks desktop wallpaper.
