In no way is Dirk Deppen’s approach to building cars subtle. The idea of a “sleeper” is lost on him; the importance of aesthetics and the cohesion between style and performance are paramount in his list of build plans. Just one glance at his main project, an E30, gives it all away: a turbo 5.3 LS, enormous fenders, wild wheels, and everything in between make for a wonderfully ostentatious machine. His E28 on the other hand, is admittedly a bit more nuanced.
Just under a month ago, Jeremy Whittle made the move to the West Coast, and in tow was his heart-stopping E28. It only seemed fitting to welcome him to the StanceWorks family in style, so we went to Los Angeles to do what we do best.
We’ll let the video do the talking.

Henry Ford can be credited with more than just a couple of great innovations. Some may argue that the assembly line production of automobiles, or perhaps his Model T, which revolutionized American transportation, were his greatest contributions to the world; however, something else comes to mind. “Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black.
Jonathan Braswell isn’t a name that rings with the sound of e-fame and notoriety. It’s likely a name you’ve never heard before, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t intentional. While much of the car scene is built around those who are after trophies, features, and fame, it’s worth celebrating those on the other side of the coin. Jonathan has been lurking in the shadows for years, building his cars for himself and himself only.
