Creating Value, for what its worth… Dec29

Creating Value, for ...

Value… its a funny word. It has weight but is completely variable. So how does one define value? What one person finds valuable, another may not. In essance value is an opinion, a matter of prefernace. So I ask, “Does this blog have value?” In talking with freinds, fans,...

One Spicy Civic Dec29

One Spicy Civic

Words by Sam Hussein Photos by Adam Frandsen What can I say about Huey Le’s 2007 Honda Civic Si?  Words do this car no justice.  The only way to truly admire it is to see it in person.  Huey bought the Civic back in December of ’09.  He enjoys being different which is very hard to do when you own a Civic.  It takes thinking outside the box.  So Huey started with the Habanero Red Pearl, because of its rarety due to its being a discontinued color.  With a plan already in his head he quickly got started buying parts and wheels.  Currently sitting on 17×9 Transparent Candy Teal BBS RS’s, these happen...

Stay Classy Tampa Dec23

Stay Classy Tampa

Words by Sam Hussein Photos by Adam Frandsen When you hear the term ‘wheel whore’ you think of low cost wheel swapping just to change up the look of a car. Lenny’s outlook on that is completely different. When I first met him a few months ago, he was rolling on 1pc Rotiform BLQ’s. Not even a week after that, he wanted to reschedule for another shoot since he had new wheels on order. Come to find out that he decided to go with 3pc Forged Rotiform BLQ’s. The fitment is so much better and the look, more aggressive. The way this Audi sits on the H&R coilovers just makes everyone’s heads turn whether...

F1 2010 Highlights Dec16

F1 2010 Highlights

I’ve had a passion for open wheel since the days when the Miami Grand Prix roared through the streets of downtown. So it’s no surprise that F1 also became an infatuation, the elite of the elite, racing gods amongst men. Names like Button, Senna, Fittipaldi, Hakkinen, Coulthard, Shumacher....

One Sexy 240 Dec16

One Sexy 240

Words by Leo Diaz Photos by Henry Z. De Kuyper, Super Street I have to say that this car really is one of a kind. I met Gabe early this year. He was more than willing to help with State of Stance and within no time was part of our staff. Getting to know him is part of appreciating his car. A graduate of the University of Miami’s engineering program (all about the U!), he has accepted a job as a Design Engineer for Honda Motor Co. in Ohio. Because of this move he has to say goodbye to his beloved purple people eater to get his career started. I will say though, that he did give me a sneak-peek at his next build and believe you me, it will...

Escaping the Abyss Dec08

Escaping the Abyss

Words by Leo Diaz Photos by Joe Dantone Those of you that have been following StateofSTANCE for some time now, may remember the Abysmal 240 that I posted up. This S15 is no different, just as stunning, just as raw, just as mean and just as abysmal.   This S15 is reppin’ the East Coat hard and was captured beautifuly by Joe Dantone   For more pics visit his...

Tandemonium Prologue

Tim and the guys asked me to join them at a Tandem Drift event they had put together. While at the event, I had the honor of riding shotgun with J.Lowe. Well known in the Florida drift culture, he has been terrorizing tires and tracks for many years now. Here is a clip of some HD footage taken...

Asymmetrical Forged Pistons by JE Dec06

Asymmetrical Forged ...

JE has just released their line of asymmetrical forged pistons. Boasting that their asymmetrical design lessens thrust load from the minor thrust side and of course the less material equates to even less weight. They already have applications ready for BMW M3 (92-99), Dodge 420A/SRT-4, Honda...

Fist Pumping Stance Dec02

Fist Pumping Stance

Words By: Leo Diaz Photos By: Adam Frandsen   This Jetta owned by Luis Cardona has one killer fist pumping stance. Lou has been in the Euro scene for over 5 years and started to feel things getting stale. He noticed that in the stance scene there is a wide variety of makes and models and so his wheel fitment addiction begun. The car began its life as his dealership’s Waterfest car before he got his hands on it. Since then the car has seen many stages before arriving to its current State of Stance. Don’t be surprised if next time you see the car its already looking different. Lou gets bored relatively quickly and jumps on new projects...
