Our talented friends at Praemio regularly turn out some of the best content to be found in the automotive world. As filmmakers and automotive enthusiasts, their talents shine through, both visually and through unparalleled storytelling. Just over a month ago, the team dropped “Triplespresso” – the compelling story of a few Porsche cup cars…
It was a few weeks ago, with the shop door wide open, that a fellow BMW enthusiast spotted the slew of E28s inside the StanceWorks HQ. Driving an absolutely gorgeous 535iS of his own, he pulled up outside, eager to talk shop and gather opinions. It wasn’t long before he asked about suspension options, having eyed a few different setups, but expressing some doubts about the results they might offer.
If there’s one thing BMW did extraordinarily well in the 1980s, it was perfecting the grand tourer. That is, of course, if you ask me. I may be alone in suggesting there’s no better example of both era and machine that represent a perfect balance between the driving experience as an enthusiast, and the driving experience as a traveller, but I mean it.
We’re excited to look back on a few weeks ago: the 2017 SoCal Vintage BMW show, in Van Nuys, California. Our friend Alex Rodriguez attended with an incredible Super 8 film camera in hand. Upon seeing the results of his on-film efforts, we knew we had to share. So, kick back and enjoy a few minutes of modern yet classic film footage. As they say, they don’t make ’em like they used to… and we think that goes for cars -and- cameras.
It’s not all too often that I come across a car that excites me. Perhaps it’s a bad sign: nearly a decade of writing feature articles and submerging myself in the depths of automotive social media have left me a bit jaded. In fact, it’s a running joke; “Mike doesn’t like anything,” and rooted within every joke is a bit of truth. I hope, of course, that my sentiments aren’t misinterpreted. I encounter cars on a daily basis that I enjoy, respect, and have a desire to share.
