There was a time when most of us hummed car noises while scooting small diecast cars across the kitchen floor. There were toy boxes filled with all sorts of matchbox vehicles. From a bass-boat finished C3 Corvette with shiny pipes out the side, to a car-crushing monster truck sitting atop gnarled tires, the collections were as diverse as it gets. Little metal dump trucks shared space with racecars, fire trucks, and sports cars alike.
With 2013 just around the corner, it comes time for those of us here at StanceWorks to reflect back on our year. 2012 took us all over the country in search for automotive inspiration. From trackside to car photoshoot, it’s clear that 2012 was a year of growth, exploration, and a broadening of vision for me and StanceWorks.
Stance|Works has been built on the mentality that if a car has an attractive “stance” then it’s something that any enthusiast can appreciate, no matter the make, model or decade in which it was built. The reality is, stance is far from anything new.
Every year as the summer sun tapers off and the fall winds start blowing, it comes time for my favorite show of the year, H2O International. Moving to the west coast wasn’t going to stop me from seeing the cars and friends that I looked forward to hanging out with every year. Ben and I packed our bags and flew out to Atlantic City, picked up our car, and boarded the Ferry on our way down to Ocean City, Maryland. There are always specific cars that you look forward to seeing.
Here at StanceWorks, we are in the business of producing the unconventional. “Pushing the envelope” has become nomenclature around these parts, and we are going to do it again today.
This is Zayan Noyes-Aponte’s Mazda MX-5 and it’s running flares to accommodate for the 9.5 -20 RSs that run at all 4 corners. No, that is not a typo… see for yourself.
