Carl Taylor has made a name for himself, and it’s one synonymous with some of the most vibrant, boldest builds out there, Stateside or not. He’s no stranger to the StanceWorks homepage, nor seemingly any other blog or magazine, and with good reason. His cars have set a benchmark for style and vivaciousness, pairing bright colors and custom wheels with unique parts and the Players style he’s come to be known for.

We live in a society that is wrapped up in possessions more than anything else: big houses, expensive cars, new clothes, et cetera. Even in the car scene, people worry about how long your modlist is or how much your wheels cost. This has led to the loss of some of the soul the community used to have. It’s full of people trying to out-do the next guy and full of people putting each other’s builds down.
It’s not every day that someone comes along with the intent to change the car scene in its entirety. After all, with the attitude most of the community has these days, that’s not too far removed from trying to move mountains. However, the thought of hard work along with the trials and tribulations of building outside the box was not nearly enough to scare away Kyle Ranauro.
