I could hear it from a mile off; a raspy but throaty howl bounced between the buildings towards me as I waited for Antoine and his 135i to arrive. The sun was beginning to dip behind the treetops that surrounded the back lot I had chosen to shoot in, and most of the surrounding buildings and foliage were glowing a rather-desirable bright, burning orange. Antoine’s coupe grew louder, and moments later, he pulled into the lot, ready for the shoot.
BJ Baldwin heads to the Pacific Northwest with his 800hp Trophy Truck to battle Bruce The Sasquatch in a showdown for the ages in Recoil3. If you thought you’d seen it all in RECOIL 1 & RECOIL 2, you were mistaken.
Rusty Slammington – Today at SEMA, one day before the show begins, Mike Burroughs revealed his famed creation. After four years behind closed doors and two years under the knife, we’ve pulled the cover back on Rusty Slammington. From the tube chassis and the and custom H&R suspension, to the race-prepped S38 and the center-lock BBS E52s, little remains from the E28’s past iteration; however, Rusty’s heart and soul remains. Today, a legend has returned.
In 1975, BMW began the Art Car Project, which paired the world’s greatest living artists with the world’s greatest marque, yielding one of the most unique and eclectic collections of art and cars ever. It was Alexander Calder and the E9 CSL that initiated the series, and after completion, the car was raced in the 1975 24 Hours of Le Mans. After the race, the car was retired, and has since served as a display for one of Calder’s final pieces before his death in 1976.
As we grow older, life tends to impede upon our hobbies. It’s been years since the entire StanceWorks family had their cars all together, in one place, and running too. H2Oi 2012 was a special year for many reasons, but it was made all the more so by the fact that most of the group had their cars in attendance. Rodney Nichols’s 190E has since gone under the knife, where it awaits a new driveline (we hope!).
