Christopher Björåsen’s enthusiasm towards E28s began as quite the opposite: disdain. Unable to understand why anyone would purchase such an “ugly” car in his youth, Christopher has since turned around entirely. His E28 now stands as a StanceWorks favorite, sure to inspire future E28 owners, showing what can be made of a car often seen as little more than a boring family sedan. Be sure to read Christopher’s full story below.
Scrolling through the SW Photo Archives, we’ve stumbled across an un-shared set of Jeremy Whittle’s noteworthy E28 in it’s final stages. While his car has made numerous appearances here on the pages of SW as one of our company project cars, his final touch of radiusing the rear fenders was only captured in this set.

After a tour through Italy in an E28, a stock, red one no less, I found my inner “old man” starting to show. For the first time in my life, I’ve had the passing though of “now I can understand how these old men prefer their cars stock. It doesn’t need to be changed.” Luckily, it’s a fleeting thought, and I am constantly reminded that there is something truly special about modified cars and their inherent sense of self-expression.
For many of us, cars are as much a part of who we are as the blood that flows through our veins. Over time, that love for cars often culminates with the affinity for one car in particular: our favorite car. Our favorites often fall into one of two categories – classics, or machines built to push the limits of automotive engineering. Sometimes it’s both, and on occasion, it’s neither.
Dont Miss: The 2009 StanceWorks Cross-Country Road Trip – Part I
We were three days into our all-but-agonizing road trip. Rife with troubles and issues, Andrew Sylvia and I had our fingers crossed that from Odessa, Texas, on, we’d have smooth sailing. Our sights were set on Tucson, AZ, to visit Nic and Steph Foster, our first true “stop” of the trip. With 8 hours of driving ahead of us, and wanting to make an early arrival, we were up and on the road at 4:00am.
