Last Sunday, the sun was shining here in the UK and I’d pretty much recovered from my recent trip to Gatebil in Norway (blogs to follow soon) so it was the perfect opportunity to grab the cameras and head out to a meet!
The meet I headed for was one held by the growing UK following of “StanceWorks.”
“Stance”, the automotive community has a love it or hate it relationship with this form of styling. Opinions usually vary based on the fact that a car is to be driven, and well being super low, as cool as it looks (and it does look cool!) means you can’t always go everywhere (thanks speed bumps) and you can’t go all that fast without some serious scraping and the ability to swap out a sump at the side of road.
But I did this individual styling and I wanted to see some of the UKs finest representatives of the stance scene up close and personal.
The meet itself was being held a couple of hours from my place so I headed to a more local meeting point and formed part of a convoy. The collection of cars there was already impressive and on the way there I took the opportunity to snap some rolling shots.
Once we arrived, the quality and mixture of cars that had turned up already was fantastic! This scene brings cars together from all makes and manufacturers, and it’s brilliant to see it all get mixed up under one roof, just like the car scene should be!
The friendly atmosphere was apparent from the get go, something that never surprises me at car meets but it’s always a pleasure to see, as people from all walks of life have that one thing in common… their passion for the car scene.
As is usual with the UK, we did get some rain. However it came & went without too much disturbance to the meet.
As someone who usually covers and works events revolving around track action of various kinds, it was great to checkout a different part of today’s car culture. To see the already hugely popular States’ ‘Stance’ styling grow in strength over here in the UK is exciting and inspiring!
