When we are young, our environments influence the way we act and behave; our surroundings make us figure out what our strengths and weaknesses are. Some people are given what they desire, whilst others have to work to earn everything they own. The term “car enthusiast” is thrown around pretty loosely in the Australian car scene, and has lost its true meaning.

The lowrider community has been one that we at STANCE|WORKS have admired from afar for quite some time. It is, after all, where the mindset of “low is a lifestyle” truly began. It is, without question, one of the most in-depth and involved niches of automotive society. Lowriders have led way to an entire subculture, and is, as a whole, one of the few styles born right here in America.

I feel these earlier BMW’s and cars like the E24 6 series have so much character, it’s hard not to love them! This probably was a key reason behind why the second word I ever spoke was “car”.
Fast forward to early 2004 (at age 15), I decided I wanted a restoration project; something fun, cheap and simple.
Melbourne is supposedly in the top ten most liveable cities in the world, it’s well-known for its green gardens, its fantastic layout and mass amounts of different cultures. One thing it’s also known for is the weather. You can see all four seasons in the same day, at times within an hour.
The skies can clear up, the sun will shine and you can walk around in a t-shirt with no problems.
