Earlier this year, we spent an afternoon with the Low’n Slow crew from Los Angeles, California. Throughout the day, we took the chance to shoot several of the crew’s cars, such as Jesse’ s Celica and Milt’s 350z. Last but not least, we’re proud to share four of a kind: Noel, Victor, Chris, and Squires’ Gs and Zs.
While entirely unique in their own rights, 350Zs and G35s are very similar cars, sharing what is essentially the same chassis.
Having made a serious name for himself with his previous build, a black-on-black Lexus SC, Milt Salamanca has been putting fender strength to the test for years now. Touting the license plate “SCWEET 1”, the car was notoriously broad in the shoulders, sporting a widebody capable of fitting what seemed like a dually rear end underneath it. However, as everyone learns one way or another, all good things come to an end.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for Andrew and I. In the past 3 weeks we have been out at H2Oi in Maryland (yes, we still need to get those photos up), in Big Bear for Oktoberfest (coverage on that soon), up in NorCal doing some collaborative work with eGarage (which turned out amazing) and just flew back in from Texas for Wek’Fest.
A lot of people ask us, “what does it take to be a sponsor on Stance|Works?” The answer sounds simple enough: Be a manufacturer or fabricator and have a standard of not settling for the “status quo.” Not as easy as you would think. Today’s industries are made up of mindsets that insist on making “the quickest dollar at the lowest cost,” which would be fine, if quality wasn’t the variable that was sacrificed.
Edafe Omosowofa’s name might not be synonymous with “Oh my lord, that’s slammed”, but if you’ve been a part of the 350Z community for very long, chances are “Royal_T” rings a bell. His Z has always been at the top of the food chain. It’s unbelievably low and flawlessly executed. It’s also driven. Hard.
