It was five years ago today that I funneled my thoughts through my keyboard and onto the StanceWorks homepage. In coming across this old gem today, I was reminded how little has changes, but how much we have grown. We set out on a mission to move the car community in a direction we saw as positive and reinforcing, and I like to think we’d made some serious strides. See our article from 2011 below, and let us know how you think it has aged 5 years on.
For the StanceWorks family, H2Oi comes as a chance to bring everyone together. While cars and car shows are what we do, there’s far more than automobiles to our weekend. We made the trip from Orange County, CA, to Ocean City, MD for one of the best weekends of the year.

Each year, the BMW Car Club of Great Britain hosts the BMW Festival at the Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon. This year, it took place on Sunday 19th August, a gloriously sunny day in central England. The show grows in strength each year, with thousands of BMWs in attendance. 2012 celebrated BMW Car Clubs 60th anniversary, more the reason to make the Festival the largest and best yet.

What does it take to be called the “Grand-daddy” of car shows? Well, besides for longevity you certainly have to have the cars on display to back it up. This year marked the 63rd year for the Grand National Roadster Show, making it the longest running indoor car show in the world.
The absolute coolest thing about checking out the Roadster Show each year is the eclectic style of vehicles on display.
If you’re anything like your grandfather, there’s a chance that, a long time ago, behind his garage door sat something he cherished. Maybe it was American iron, or perhaps it was foreign steel. It could be that he waxed it every Saturday morning, or maybe he left it dirty after the Friday night races. One thing, however, is for certain: we have quite a bit to thank him for.
