For years, we’ve worked to bring the StanceWorks community together. We’ve hosted our fair share of shows, from “Project 512” and the Avila Motoring Invitational, to Air Affair and “Stance of the Union” on more than one occasion; however, they all stand with a degree of separation from the heart of StanceWorks itself.
It should come as no surprise that both fashions and trends come and go – whether its apparel, design, art, or even automotive, styles emerge and retreat with a nuanced flow.

We’ve made it to June, and with it comes the long-awaited summer heat. The snow, for most of us in the Northern hemisphere, has melted away, and droves of tourists now flock to the closest shores to enjoy the best weather the season has to offer.

From its small stature and lightfooted presence, to its iconic traits and its well-penned lines, the BMW 2002’s allure has ensnared a considerable number of us.

Nick Tabeta’s endearment for 02s is no different, having spent a number of his 23 years on Earth looking on at BMW’s nimble coupe with hopeful eyes, yearning for the chance to own one.
