Historically, it’s coupes that get the love. There’s something iconic about a two-door’s profile and their sportier disposition. Sedans, on the other hand, are born and bred as a means to an end, a way from point A to point B with the capacity to carry a family. As such, the E9 Coupe has found its way to the spotlight and is heralded as Hagerty’s 2019 top car to invest in. The E9’s four-door counterpart, the E3 “Bavaria” as it is known stateside, seems all but forgotten.
With the hot rod build and the rush of SEMA, it’s been months since I was able to hit the trails and put my Land Cruiser to work. On top of that, a failed transfer case from mid-summer left the truck in a largely unusable state until time allowed for a repair. The post-SEMA dust has settled, though, and now that the FJ60 is back on the road, I’ve been eager to get out and earn a few new paint chips.
As one of the busiest Automotive photographers on planet Earth, Mike seems to be accruing an incredible archive of machines, both new and old. Amidst the incredible features he sets up for the homepage, a slew of cars and mini-shoots here and there bubble to the surface. We lovingly refer to this extra body of work as “The Crawat Files,” and our latest peer into Mike’s archives reveals a gorgeous and firmly-planted E24 coupe.
No matter your age, old or young, there’s something truly special about the Viper GTS coupe. Sure, it’s plagued by American details such as an entirely plastic interior and a Dodge namesake… but look at it. Listen to it. Is there anything cooler than a car that actively tries to kill you while you drive it? Exactly. Nevertheless, it’s been a few years since Sebastien Polit made his debut on the StanceWorks homepage with his ’95 E34 Touring.
It’s that time of year once again: a look back on my biggest moments of the past twelve months. Each year brings about a new sense of excitement as I take my first opportunity in 365 days to look back on the photos I’ve taken, the cars I’ve build, and the adventures I’ve been blessed to have. It’s easy to forget both how long and how short a year can be, and just how many memories can fall to the wayside as we hustle our way from one day to the next.
