It’s likely safe to assume that if you frequent StanceWorks, you’re at least loosely caught up with 2021’s K-Swap Ferrari project. With a focus on time attack racing, we’ve put an emphasis on shedding pounds, and one major avenue for that is the building of a custom interior using lightweight, minimalistic products.
Every year, StanceWorks hits the open road in search of empty trails and breathtaking scenery. Our travels have taken us through both Utah and Colorado, but after a hiatus in 2020 thanks to the global pandemic, we’re back for 2021 with a trip to Idaho. While “Idaho” often conjures thoughts of potatoes and farming, its home to some of the United States’ most beautiful and remote landscapes.
The annual StanceWorks Off Road adventure is upon us! Tomorrow, we set out for Idaho, where we’ll spend the next number of days travelling the Backcountry Discovery Route. In preparation, we’ve transformed the latest shop truck and tow rig: the 1997 Ford F-350, equipped with a 7.3 Powerstroke. We’ve given it a slew of supporting mods: new suspension and 35″ Nitto Trail Grapplers, as well as a GFC Rooftop tent, Rigd Ultraswing, and a Dometic fridge to support us for the trip.
When it comes to modified car events, I’m pretty confident that, to any self-respecting enthusiast, Players will need no introduction. Jay, Carl and the wider Players team, veterans of the modified ‘scene’ in the UK, have been curating some of the best car shows for well over a decade.
As they continue to age, it’s hard to imagine anything grows as gracefully as the W108 and W109 platforms from Mercedes Benz. They are definitive of an era, and somehow manage to be the subject of lust of seemingly all automotive enthusiasts. Mike Crawat has worked his photographic magic, capturing a gorgeous trio amongst the fall leaves. In celebration of a timeless classic, enjoy these aesthetic shots of what Mercedes can rightfully call: the Best or Nothing.
