Uneventful evenings at the StanceWorks shop have spawned a number of games. “Coaster Golf,” like frisbee golf, only with card-stock coasters snagged from tables at restaurants, offers a downsized form of competition on boring days. Flinging used latex gloves across the shop and into the trash can is a daily occurrence, and when successful, warrants cheers every time. There’s even a ping pong table, for when we’re feeling a bit more organized.
It seems rare that a Daily Grind update offers a chance to share so much, but a lot has happened at the StanceWorks HQ since our last report. From new parts and new art, to new cars, both big and small, we’ve been having fun this summer.
Easily the most exciting update is the announcement of the latest Lowly Gentlemen art print. Hand drawn by Andrew once again, the latest limited-number print features a draft drawing of Mercedes’ famous Sauber C9 prototype race car.
Practice makes perfect, and good things come to those who wait; two common phrases that hold frustratingly true. Jaze, the owner of Broadway Static and the not-so-subtle green Felony Form wide-body E36, is all too familiar with those words of wisdom. In regard to his car, it’s not his first rodeo with an e36 BMW; he previously owned an rather nice 1JZ swapped 318is. It was a car that anyone should be proud to own, but Jaze wanted to go a little bit further this time around.
With BMW’s launch of the F80 M3, the E90 and E92 are no longer the new kid on the block. Instead, they’ve officially cemented their position in the M3 legacy, and will, from here on out, presumably age like a fine wine. We will watch them depreciate in value for the next few years, but in due time, their place amongst the hierarchy of BMW M cars will ensure they’re a classic in the future.
In perhaps the only video we’ve been more anxious for than the long-awaited release of “32 Hours 7 Minutes,” the team at Stereoscreen has produced “Adrenaline – The BMW Touring Car Story.” Yesterday, the latest trailer for the upcoming movie landed on Vimeo, and we have to say, we couldn’t possibly me more excited.
The film takes a look at BMW’s charismatic drivers and fascinating racing cars from five decades.
