It was a few weeks ago that photographer and friend of StanceWorks, Eric Dowd, reached out with the latest of his work to share with us. Presented with some fantastic photos of a rather nice, simple E30, we were eager to share ourselves. Ethan James has put together an E30 with a tried and true recipe, executed with taste and refinement.
I could hear it from a mile off; a raspy but throaty howl bounced between the buildings towards me as I waited for Antoine and his 135i to arrive. The sun was beginning to dip behind the treetops that surrounded the back lot I had chosen to shoot in, and most of the surrounding buildings and foliage were glowing a rather-desirable bright, burning orange. Antoine’s coupe grew louder, and moments later, he pulled into the lot, ready for the shoot.
I’ve heard my fair share of tales of car ownership, and up until recently, I’d have said “I’ve heard it all.” Stories ranging from lucky back-yard finds that cost little more than a 6-pack of beer, to long cons, with enthusiasts spending years convincing others to let go of their prized vehicles. Anthony Herrera, however, begins his story a bit differently than most.

The Lotus ownership club is a relatively small one. Founded in 1952 in North London, Lotus is a sports car manufacturer that focuses on the ethos of light weight and superior handling. Known for icons such as the Esprit, Elan, and Elise, Lotus has earned their keep as a special name amongst auto enthusiasts – especially those that love to drive.

The E36/8 Z3 M-Coupe is definitively a “love/hate” car. Its unusual styling presents an unmatched love in the heart of some, versus a foul taste in the mouth of others. The controversial “clown shoe” shooting-brake body lines are unlike any other BMW, before and after – and it only seems fitting that such a unique car has a rather special cult following.
