These days, Adam Woodhams has earned quite the reputation. Taking a look back, it’s possible to see his growth as a builder right here on the pages of StanceWorks, starting with his Audi A8 in 2011. Then there was his ’57 Chevy Pickup in 2012, and following that, there was his gorgeous ’51 Pontiac Chieftain in 2013. In 2015, he finished his latest project, a 1959 Buick LeSabre, but it’s only now that he’s ready to share it in motion. Stay tuned for the full feature.
The year is 1951 – one in an era often glorified with the image of the American Dream. CBS has just introduced color television, Sugar Ray Robinson takes the middleweight boxing championship title, and Audrey Hepburn earns her first starring role – the lead in the Broadway play Gigi. The American economy is back in a steady climb, and the American automotive market is at the cutting edge of style and technology.

If you remember our article on Alex’s E28, you may just remember our names. After that was posted, Mike graciously asked if we would consider submitting some more articles. Alex and I talked about it and knew right away what our first submission would be, Adam Huddart’s 1960 Bel Air. It’s just that quintessential “car guy” car that we knew Stance Works viewers would love. It doesn’t completely follow any one genre, just like Adam himself.
