One of the most recent installments of Air Lift Performance’s “Life on Air” series features a familiar name and face from the StanceWorks Archives. This bike hauler shows us how it’s done, low and slow. Matt Waln, a first responder out of Warrenton, VA shares a little about himself, his style, and what motivates him to build machines that move.
The team at Air Lift Performance sent us to Cleveland, Ohio, to visit Street Machinery, a shop that has earned worldwide rapport for its world-class hot rod and truck builds. Alongisde our old friends, JJ Larson and Matt Crane from AWOL.TV, we took to our cameras. Boris’s truck plays off of the ultimate 2-faced style; the exterior’s patina is earned and as rich as they come – it’s what fans of the style spend years hunting down.

There’s a group of guys out there who believe in building their trucks a very specific way. The frame and/or body lays parallel to the ground, the suspension is modernized for improved handling at very low drive heights, snd the outside is never touched. No paint is sprayed, no ugly mirrors removed. These are the guys who live by their patina.
Sam Castronova is one of those men.
