For a car so stunning and elegant, I have few words. Perched upon the green of the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the ’67 Ferrari 412 P Competizone was simply unparalleled. I’ve crossed paths with many cars at this point, many on the green and more on the tarmac. Some I love, some I loathe, and of course, best of all, I have my personal favorites. No car, though, has captured my adoration in such a way as the 412 P.
It’s tax season…and that comes right before show season. For the month of March, Air Lift Performance dealers will be offering up to 20% off all products. This includes all complete performance air suspension kits and control systems such as Air Lift Performance 3H (height + pressure) and 3P (pressure only). If you didn’t take advantage Air Lift Performances’ Black Friday / Cyber Monday deal, now is a great time to start your #lifeonair.

They are the reason that you’re here reading this article, they’re probably the catalyst for a number of your friendships, they often motivate our actions and influence our decisions, and on one particular morning, cars were the reason that my alarm had gone off far too early. I found myself sitting on the tarmac as the pilot awaited permission to be the first plane to take off that morning.
Over the past decade or more, we’ve amassed a lot of photos, and with that a lot of photo sets. Andrew and I have shot a little bit of what feels like “everything under the sun,” but only on occasion do we turn the cameras towards creations of our own. Today, while perusing the StanceWorks archives, I encountered the final photoshoot of the StanceWorks E9.
