Who needs an interior, anyway?! Today, I’m ripping the guts out of the Ferrari 308 GTBi, beginning with the gorgeous factory seats. I’ve bought a set of Bride Zeta IIs from Japan for the build, and have decided an F40-esque interior is more my pace. Out comes the carpet and the sound deadening… it’s all just unnecessary weight. Soon, we’ll begin the quest to find the “right” replacement carpet, and decide just how much of the interior should go back in.
“Better late than never,” they seem to say. It’s been more than a year since my latest project made its debut with H&R Springs, center stage, at SEMA 2018. After a blisteringly-fast 6-month build, I turned up the day of roll in, excited to show the world what I had been working on through the summer and fall months of the year.
Just over a week ago, we hosted our second Open House at the StanceWorks Headquarters, as a celebration of sorts for 10 years of automotive content and community. As the fourth “major” event we’ve hosted at the shop (PRE/GRID and our Open Houses, for those counting), it surpassed any and all expectations. With a start time of 11:00AM, the lot was full before the event had a chance to begin.
Towards the end of last year, I hauled Rusty Slammington out to the Los Angeles Port. There, Keith Ross and Jared Houston exercised their talents, snapping photos and videos which later culminated into one of the best pieces of 2017. It was the first time I had ever had someone else shoot the car, and with that, I stood back and let them work. As the light faded, though, I couldn’t help but grab my own camera and snap a few.
Year after year, we continue to both refine and redefine our apparel. Each line brings forth not only new ideas in design and product: each new line further embraces our character and our passions. Today, we’re excited to announce the latest from the Lowly Gentlemen, which includes four all-new shirt designs, as well as two new hats, and an art print too, all designed by the hand and pen of Andrew Ritter.
