Specialty Equipment Market Association, or SEMA as the rest of the world knows it. Once again we attended SEMA and much to our surprise there was a resurgence of enthusiasm in the air. The past couple years at SEMA had been good, but it did not have that “WOW” factor, maybe it had something to do with a harsh economy or whatever.
This year there were so many manufacture builds that they overflowed into the outside parking and show areas, and not just slapped together garage builds, we saw a lot of quality built vehicles. There was also a continued growth...
3SDM From The Ashes
Where Euro Flare meet Japanese Style
Photography by Jasper Ash
Jasper is not just an important contributor to State of Stance. He is also a tuner much like all of us. He has a car, which he loves, and enjoys modding as much as we do.
That is more than evident in his latest setup. Much of us remember his Scion tC on Roti’s or on the ever popular SBC Enkei RPFs, but this last set of wheels takes the car into another level.
Blending the car’s Japanese-esque lines with the very euro style of the 9.5″ wide 3SDMs is bold, it’s classy, it’s sexy, it’s just damn genius.
Wheels alone don’t make...

Our staff is not that big, but we pack a big punch. It’s only 8 of us, yet 5 of our cars have graced the pages of Canibeat.com. It’s no surprise that we love Canibeat and appreciate the love they show SoS.
Here is their latest feature highlighting our Gulf Coast Coordinator and...
We’ve had the amazing opportunity to be a Media Sponsor for Formula Drift’s 2011 season. It has been an unforgettable experience and has given me the chance to meet some of the coolest people in our industry and around the globe. This last event was different, its been a very long time since I have had a camera in my hands and even longer since I’ve done so for motorsports. Considering I’ve spent the last year behind a computer looking at code, writing articles, sending emails and packing and unpacking booths; the best parts of this last year have been meeting so many of you, either at events or at our booths....
In the scene, there is no wheel more coveted than the always infamous BBS RS, a classic mesh design that has surpassed the years and remains ageless. Morphing from a vintage build to even the most late model cars, it continues to catch our eye. As did these two black beauties both sporting the mesh goodness so sexy that I think they beat Charlie Sheen’s Goddesses.
Hailing from the West Coast of Florida is Sam Hussein. Sam’s tC is unlike many I’ve seen. While most Scion owners go the route of flashy mods and car show builds, Sam went the opposite direction and built a clean and simple ride that sits low and wide. Once...
