They say never to meet your heroes. They might not live up to your lofty expectations, they might not be the mythical entity you always thought them to be, and they might just let you down. With that thought creeping around in the back of my head, I was trying not to get too worked up about the argyle-clad monster that was suddenly in my path.
Between the finished projects that grace the homepage of STANCE|WORKS lie true works in progress; cars that have yet to hit the streets in final form. For some, it’s an interim that is more holy than the completed car itself, and for others, it’s merely a means to an end, the path required for the car they dream of. Brody’s 1930 Plymouth falls in between; a rat rod slowly coming together to terrorize asphalt and children alike, and we’re excited to share his progress.
Californian summers are rich with car shows, meets, and get-togethers, filling nearly every weekend with an assortment of events to fit your choosing. We spent our Sunday afternoon at the 3rd Annual Motor Union, hosted by 5&ADIME at the Green Flash Brewery just north of San Diego. With a relaxed atmosphere and fun vibe, it was the perfect way to kick back on a day off.
When Scion introduced the first generation of xBs, they did something that would later shape how many automotive companies viewed the aftermarket industry and enthusiasts. Toyota created the Scion brand to provide automotive artists with a blank slate.

Last week, Andrew and I packed our bags for Ohio, Andrew’s home turf and old stomping grounds. We’d be joining BMW Team RLL for the sixth race of the ALMS series, this time at the classic Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. The summer humidity was a literal warm-welcome back to our home-side of the country. The lush green grass and midwestern trees offered the perfect setting for the latest American Le Mans Series race; the perfect contrast to the sands of Laguna Seca.
