For five years now, a tradition has continued: a post that looks back on the year that has passed, highlighting the best imagery captured over the last twelve months. It’s an opportunity for Andrew and I to share our highlights, talents, and memories too… and this year is no exception. This time, however, I’ve decided on a different approach.
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.
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.
For years, we’ve worked to bring the StanceWorks community together. We’ve hosted our fair share of shows, from “Project 512” and the Avila Motoring Invitational, to Air Affair and “Stance of the Union” on more than one occasion; however, they all stand with a degree of separation from the heart of StanceWorks itself.
Today, BMW has unveiled the latest product of their racing efforts: the 2016 M6 GTLMs in their final liveries. Numbered 25 and 100, and emblazoned with colorways and designs of heritage and importance, the pair of cars is set to make their racing debut this weekend at the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona. Tomorrow, Andrew departs for Florida, where he’ll set up trackside and photograph them on their way to what we hope will be their first win.
