The Nissan, or more appropriately Datsun, Z chassis, has always been a favorite among car enthusiasts worldwide. The aggressive yet classic body lines have been a definitive shape in the automotive industry for decades now. Erik Jonasson’s journey is one that takes us back in time in more than one way.
In 2006 Erik bought a 350Z, which was driven everyday for nearly 4 years.
Neslted between the rolling hills of central California, along the beautiful Pacific Coast lies the Avila Beach Golf Resort. StanceWorks proudly invites you to join us for a weekend of cars, sand, and sun as we host the first annual Avila Motoring invitational. Car enthusiasts from all over the West Coast will enjoy a scenic drive along the shoreline on their way to a wonderful weekend in Avila Beach, a town known for its beautiful scenery and relaxed atmosphere.
A large part of the automotive build process lies in the search. We scour classifieds, dig through boxes of parts, and roam junkyards looking for that thing that strikes us as “just right”. Each one of us has an image in our heads of the perfect car and it constantly infiltrates our daydreams. For some it’s a sleek black VIP car with flat lipped wheels cambered into radiused fenders.

This past weekend, a quiet aerodrome in Turweston was invaded for the fourth instalment of the ever expanding Deutsch Connection 2012 show, or DC12 as it is more commonly known. Deutsch Connection is a club run by a group of like-minded Scottish German-car enthusiasts who have religiously made the 800 mile round trip for the last 4 years to host the DC show.

It goes without saying that for any car enthusiast with a brand preference, (let’s be honest, we all have one in some way or another) the rare and odd-ball models and versions of our favorite cars are the ones we lust after. Perhaps it’s a car that came in a unique factory color, or there’s a chance it came with special body cladding.
