For the StanceWorks family, H2Oi comes as a chance to bring everyone together. While cars and car shows are what we do, there’s far more than automobiles to our weekend. We made the trip from Orange County, CA, to Ocean City, MD for one of the best weekends of the year.
Every August, the Monterey area of California experiences an influx of automobiles from eras passed. Pre-war machines are oiled up and emerge from their hiding places. Classic chariots are are given a final wax before hitting the roads of the beautiful coastal towns. Over the course of one week each year, over 50 events are held to celebrate the love and reverence for historic automobiles.
Every once in a while, it’s nice to leave the lowered cars behind in the name of some weekend fun; however, there’s no fun in making things any easier on ourselves. Instead of speedbumps, we made a Sunday of climbing rocks and dodging holes. Andrew, Cody, and I got together with our great friends Geoff and Kyle, and their pair of Range Rovers, to hit the trails in Big Bear, California.
Bonneville Speed Week 2012 is the end-all for a number of facets of automotive culture. From hot rods to belly tankers to jet-powered stream liners, for many, it is the mecca, the one event per year that represents much more than itself. For many, the journey is a yearly pilgrimage, and we can’t say we blame them. Our plans are to join them next year in the STANCE|WORKS project Model A, but until then, Darkcar’s short film will have to tide us over.

Nick Lanno’s bagged E30 is a sight to be seen, hovering millimeters above the ground atop a gorgeous set of RSs. In many ways, it’s what many believe an E30 should be, yet there’s no question many of us have trouble rationalizing such builds to our parents.
