Having made a serious name for himself with his previous build, a black-on-black Lexus SC, Milt Salamanca has been putting fender strength to the test for years now. Touting the license plate “SCWEET 1″, the car was notoriously broad in the shoulders, sporting a widebody capable of fitting what seemed like a dually rear end underneath it. However, as everyone learns one way or another, all good things come to an end.

There’s a group of guys out there who believe in building their trucks a very specific way. The frame and/or body lays parallel to the ground, the suspension is modernized for improved handling at very low drive heights, snd the outside is never touched. No paint is sprayed, no ugly mirrors removed. These are the guys who live by their patina.
Sam Castronova is one of those men.

Our individual love for cars manifests itself within us in a countless number of ways. It’s as though we each find our way to a common place by a path all our own. Some are raised wrenching under a car along side their old man, busting knuckles on tools their fathers and grandfathers used as well. Others find their own way, perhaps inspired by the first cool car they saw pass the school bus we all rode as a kid.
If it hasn’t become abundantly clear by now, we here at Stance|Works are interested in all things “low.” Our estimation is that everything generally looks better closer to the ground. There is nothing new about this concept as it dates back to bored teenagers in the ‘30’s removing leaves from leaf springs on their model A’s just to see what it would look like.

This past weekend marked the first StanceWorks meet of the year for the United Kingdom, held at the yard of Type 2 Detectives in beautiful Cambridgeshire. The event was held in conjunction with the Lowly Gentlemen and the launch of an authorised European dealer. Being typically British, the weather was slightly on the cold side but spells of sunshine gleamed through the cloudy skies from time to time.
