I loosely remember the first time I saw Van Go – perhaps it was in a magazine, or maybe online – the details are fuzzy, but unimportant. What I do remember was a sense of curiosity.

The snow outside is probably going to stick. The salt trucks are out here in Minnesota. The road and cars are covered with the white dust the county lays out on the road to keep us all from freezing to death in a ditch. This means my ‘72 911 is tucked safely away in the garage.

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.

Recently, SS & SZ reached out, eager to share more with the StanceWorks audience.
