With most of the show season behind us and the days growing shorter, it’s time to look forward to the fall and winter months that will be spent in the garage tinkering on the builds that will roll out on the streets next spring. I’ve been hard at work in the studio working on the most recent run of Lowly Gentlemen gear which I’m pleased to announce is now available. At the forefront of the fall line are 3 new shirt designs in the StanceWorks Lifestyle collection.
Nic and Stephanie Foster’s E21 deserves every bit of recognition it can muster up. As one of the most admired E21s on the planet, there’s no shortage of folks seeking to photograph their build; however, Nic and Steph are selective people. When media does surface, be it photos or video, there’s never a doubt that the quality will be unparalleled. The team at MACHETE is the most recent to have their take on the car, and it goes to show that only the best work with the best.
The team at Air Lift Performance sent us to Cleveland, Ohio, to visit Street Machinery, a shop that has earned worldwide rapport for its world-class hot rod and truck builds. Alongisde our old friends, JJ Larson and Matt Crane from AWOL.TV, we took to our cameras. Boris’s truck plays off of the ultimate 2-faced style; the exterior’s patina is earned and as rich as they come – it’s what fans of the style spend years hunting down.
It was more than a year ago when we first saw Blair Peterman’s ’78 Audi Fox as we drove down Ocean City’s main strip. H2Oi presents a chance to find some of the community’s best and most feature-worthy cars each year, and our afternoons are sometimes spent hunting down OC’s best. One of 2013’s most alluring cars was the white-topped Fox coupe, parked outside of Blair’s hotel.
With BMW’s launch of the F80 M3, the E90 and E92 are no longer the new kid on the block. Instead, they’ve officially cemented their position in the M3 legacy, and will, from here on out, presumably age like a fine wine. We will watch them depreciate in value for the next few years, but in due time, their place amongst the hierarchy of BMW M cars will ensure they’re a classic in the future.
