On Saturday afternoon, the StanceWorks HQ parking lot filled with the sights and sounds of vintage race cars for our first ever PRE/GRID event. In association with VARA – the Vintage Auto Racing Association – we put forth an event that aims to celebrate everything that makes the world of vintage racing special, and with a bit of luck, we hope to bring a few new faces to the track for the next VARA event.
Over the past two years, the StanceWorks FJ62 Land Cruiser has certainly earned its keep. From off-road adventures driving under a hot day’s sun, to cold nights spent camping inside, we’ve certainly found it to be a home away from home. More than that though, it’s spent nearly two full years on daily driver duty, and while I’ve tried my best to keep it clean, Chloe has done her best to give it that “lived in” feel, and perhaps not in the best way.
The StanceWorks forums are currently undergoing a much-needed overhaul to combat the onslaught of spam that has long since plagued the boards. Please be patient with us over the next day or two as we overhaul our software, implement new anti-spam measures, and do everything we can to reignite the forum community.
“I’m not really a BMW guy.” It sounds downright blasphemous coming from the owner of an Alpina, the real deal. But then again, one look at the car might just reveal some blasphemy too. Alpina isn’t known for horseplay, and so the idea of a street-sweeping wagon may be a bit foreign in nature to enthusiasts of the marque. Nevertheless, Ryan Stewart is unfazed, convinced that his take on the high-output estate car is exactly what an Alpina should be.
At StanceWorks, we try to share a little bit of everything. From modern to classic, and subdued in nature to over-the-top: if it excites us, it earns a place on the StaceWorks homepage, and that’s how it’s always been. However, it’s hard to suggest that it’s anything compares to the excitement, the history, and the character of vintage motorsports… in our opinion, at least.
