If you ask Magnus about the whirlwind that has been the last couple of years for him, he’ll tell you that the timeline is marked by very definite moments in time. With moments like the debut of his movie, ‘Urban Outlaw’, and the completion of his STR 02 build, there are specific dates that stand out in his mind as mile markers along the crazy road that he has traveled.
Earlier this year, we featured Riley Stair’s incredible Datsun 260Z. In typical Stair fashion, no facet was left untouched, resulting in a build has left a lasting impression. During our shoot, the car has just 9 miles on the odometer after an LS6 swap, and has since been tearing up the streets of Sacramento. For our latest StanceWorks Wallpaper, we bring you one of our favorite images from the set:

Uneventful evenings at the StanceWorks shop have spawned a number of games. “Coaster Golf,” like frisbee golf, only with card-stock coasters snagged from tables at restaurants, offers a downsized form of competition on boring days. Flinging used latex gloves across the shop and into the trash can is a daily occurrence, and when successful, warrants cheers every time. There’s even a ping pong table, for when we’re feeling a bit more organized.
Perhaps synonymous with the Mclaren namesake itself is their iconic, burning and glowing Papaya Orange colorway. As one of the first cars uncovered on the fairways at Amelia Island, this particular 1969 Mclaren M6B/GT lit up the field. Despite having its cover pulled back, a blanket of dew and moisture still clung to the to the bodywork and lexan windows. Still, its lines danced and its color popped, lighting the way as the surrounding cars slowly but surely came out to play.

“What year is that thing?” – If you’ve ever owned a classic car, you know the question well. Chances are it’s the first thing a curious stranger will ask you when you pull up at a gas station. Older cars just seem friendly and inviting. You’ll end up deep in conversation with passers-by as they reminisce about how they had a friend or relative who once had some similar car when they were a kid.
