Rusty Slammington – Today at SEMA, one day before the show begins, Mike Burroughs revealed his famed creation. After four years behind closed doors and two years under the knife, we’ve pulled the cover back on Rusty Slammington. From the tube chassis and the and custom H&R suspension, to the race-prepped S38 and the center-lock BBS E52s, little remains from the E28’s past iteration; however, Rusty’s heart and soul remains. Today, a legend has returned.
In 1975, BMW began the Art Car Project, which paired the world’s greatest living artists with the world’s greatest marque, yielding one of the most unique and eclectic collections of art and cars ever. It was Alexander Calder and the E9 CSL that initiated the series, and after completion, the car was raced in the 1975 24 Hours of Le Mans. After the race, the car was retired, and has since served as a display for one of Calder’s final pieces before his death in 1976.
As we grow older, life tends to impede upon our hobbies. It’s been years since the entire StanceWorks family had their cars all together, in one place, and running too. H2Oi 2012 was a special year for many reasons, but it was made all the more so by the fact that most of the group had their cars in attendance. Rodney Nichols’s 190E has since gone under the knife, where it awaits a new driveline (we hope!).
It seems like only a month ago that summer began; the days grew longer and the heat was met with anticipation. However, in an instant, we’re on the cusp of winter (or what we have of such a thing in California) and the warm season has flown past as nothing more than a fleeting moment. The silver lining is that the year’s busiest months are nearly behind us, with SEMA just two weeks away, which ends our “year” at StanceWorks.
Air Lift Performance has been an industry leader, setting the gold standard for air suspension technology and quality. Today, they separate themselves even further from the competition with the announcement of their all-new height and pressure based air management system: The 3H.
