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.
2012 marks the 8th year for the Japanese Classic Car Show (JCCS), known throughout the country as the end-all for those in love with nostalgic and retro “JDM” cars. We made the trip out to the Queen Mary show grounds and captured some of our favorites from the show. As my first time attending, I can certainly say this isn’t one to miss from here on out.
We love hearing and reading the stories from the members of the StanceWorks community. It’s always inspiring to see the work and dedication that is put into the cars that are shown off on our forums every day. Mikey Gaumann put together this video documenting the work that Shea and a few friends put in to get his Bavaria sitting nicely over a set of beautiful Impul Silhouettes before Shea starts work on his Airlift air suspension setup.

For years now, the Cadillac de Ville has been a favorite of mine, topping the list of cars that I know I’ll have to own someday. While I’m more partial to the sedans myself, it’s been a long time coming that we get the chance to feature any member of the de Ville family. Cody Craven’s 1966 Cadillac Coupe de Ville hits all the right spots, leaving us to question why we continue to tinker with anything but classic American Iron.
