We can safely say it: we’ve survived yet another SEMA. Even after attending my ninth SEMA this year, they don’t get any easier. It’s a week-long challenge for the feet, the joints, and the liver, thanks to alcohol-fueled antics that follow the show each night. This year was a resounding success, not only for ourselves and our Motul-liveried “Parts Car,” but for the StanceWorks family of vendors and sponsors too.
Exactly a year ago, we unveiled the latest StanceWorks build: a 1982 BMW E28 Group A tribute dubbed “the Parts Car.” Inspired by BMW’s ETCC racing efforts of the early 1980s, the E28 is an exercise in celebrating history, restoration, preservation, and most importantly, the embodiment of everything that makes the original M5 a one-of-a-kind machine.
This year, we’re back, and if you ask us, it’s better than ever before.
biIt was nearly 10 years ago that I bought my first E28: a polaris silver 528e, for a total of $400. It was far from love at first sight – in fact, I bought it only to satisfy the sense of need I felt after finding a BMW that seemed far too cheap to pass up. I sold it quickly thereafter, and it wasn’t until more than a year later that the E28’s allure began to grab hold of me.
