He’s back. For the third year in a row, Evan Brown returns, bringing heat to the winter with what may be StanceWorks’s first-ever feature hat-trick for a single car. Version 3 of his Item-B RX7 sets the stage for a no-holds-barred take on speed, car culture, design, and of course, style.
It’s easy to forget that non-sunny weather exists as one sunny, 60 degree winter day rolls into the next, but mother nature seemed bent on a wet forecast for our early spring PRE/GRID get together. After postponing once to avoid an ominous forecast, we decided to simply stick it out when it decided to rain the following weekend. Fortunately for us, the rain wasn’t enough to deter many dedicated vintage racers in their slick-tire-equipped vehicles.
The wonderfully talented Scott “Funky Mac” Mackay and Nick Dimitrov recently got together and put their talents to work. Featuring Nick’s wild E30 M3 build and Mac’s camera and editing work, the result leaves us drooling for more. As a complete restoration featuring an immense amount of work and custom parts, Nick’s E30 would be hard to celebrate as well in any other medium. Sit back, turn up your speakers, and click play to enjoy the latest StanceWorks video feature.
That’s right folks, PRE/GRID is on, rain or shine. Head to the StanceWorks HQ and join us on Saturday for a day of celebrating vintage race cars, rain or shine.
Our latest find in the depths of YouTube comes from the team at Defined Cars. Their first video highlighted one truly incredible car: a RWD-converted ’74 Saab 99 built by Jesper Schwartz. From its fantastic sounds and incredible original color, to the fabrication and the car’s uniqueness in every regard, there’s literally nothing we’d change. Enjoy this inside look at Jesper’s creation and what it took to build it.
