It was five years ago today that I funneled my thoughts through my keyboard and onto the StanceWorks homepage. In coming across this old gem today, I was reminded how little has changes, but how much we have grown. We set out on a mission to move the car community in a direction we saw as positive and reinforcing, and I like to think we’d made some serious strides. See our article from 2011 below, and let us know how you think it has aged 5 years on.
Unless you’re new to the StanceWorks homepage, chances are you’ve heard of Riley Stair. Aside form being one of StanceWorks’s closest friends and supporters, he’s also responsible for a number of notable builds, most of which have earned screen time here on the S|W homepage. There was 2015’s most popular StanceWorks feature, his LS6-powered Datsun 260Z, and there was his Cummins-powered ’49 Chevy 3100 pickup, built as a project between him and his father.
For a Mercedes fan, a trip to nearly any European car show is bound to result in disappointment. Beyond the droves of Volkswagens, BMWs, and even Porsches, they’d be lucky to find even just a few examples sporting the famous 3-pointed star. The sample size slims considerably if you decide to pass up anything made in the last 25 years, but there are a few folks out there with reverence for the classics.
Each month, our friends at H&R Springs release a new wallpaper, featuring the latest and greatest from the H&R collection. This month, they’ve honored our Project Focus RS with its own wallpaper/calendar, and fittingly, we’re sharing with you. Simply right-click and save-as, or head to hrsprings.
Over the weekend following a fit of boredom, the StanceWorks crew took to Craigslist, as a competition of sorts to find the cheapest car for sale. Within an hour, we had our hands on a rather nice example of a 2002 Saturn SL2, complete with working AC, cruise control, and power accessories. Truthfully, it makes a great candidate for a cheap commuter, but for the $201 price tag, we knew what had to be done.
