As far back as he can remember, Henning Burr has always been a Mercedes fan. His father got him hooked at an early age, and as a Mercedes mechanic, it only makes sense that Henning, too, would follow in his footsteps. His father taught him the ins and outs of wrenching, and capped it with a familiar sentiment: “Henning, you would make me proud if you also drove a Mercedes.” It’s safe to say, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
This one is a fun one… We’ve got not one, not two, but three sets of wheels to test fit on the Ferrari 308… none of which will be the final wheels for the car. However, we’re likely to learn a lot about what fits and what doesn’t. So, up first: a set of Volk TE37s, an all-time classic and absolutely true to the Time Attack spirit of the build.
Each and every project car tells a story of its own. Some, on one hand, tell a story of rapid ascent, fueled by deadlines, Red Bull, and overnight shipping. On the other hand, some tell the story of a slow, calculated burn only enriched my methodic, well-planned, and orderly execution. Few cars, though, have a better story than those that have been with their owner for a decade or more: the builds that have been built and built again.
If you haven’t been following along on our twice-a-week uploads to the StanceWorks YouTube channel, we’ve recently returned to the StanceWorks E36. After more than half a decade off the road, it’s in need of a serious overhaul in order to bring it back to life. We’ve gotten the E36 torn apart at the back end, but let’s just say it didn’t go smoothly. We fought a stubborn gas tank, a broken subframe mount, frozen axles, and all sorts of bushings…
It’s always enjoyable to revisit the StanceWorks Archives for a re-edit. This time around, the subject is the CSF Evo Time Attack build, featured earlier this year: one of the wildest Time Attack cars to feature the homepage. The car finds itself currently undergoing a slew of changes in a quest for unclaimed time at Buttonwillow’s famous 13CW layout. While we wait for the grand unveiling, we present the latest StanceWorks Desktop Wallpaper.
