ILB Drivers Club | Stanceworks UK Meet
The start of the meet already had a decent amount of cars there, and later in the night more and more cars came Nice looking supra Advent Works: South Texas Stance Meet #1 &emdash; NSGRM MarchMay 27, In "Event Coverage". STANCEWORKS | UK MEET @ HERITAGE MOTOR CENTRE. On March 26, by tiefundbreit. Continuing on the coverage of the UK roadtrip, here's my. 19th March · England. Share; 5, Views. Held in Milton Keynes once again, the first Stanceworks UK meet of the year is always a good place for car.
These were newer cars though, personally I prefer a classic, more fittingly, a Bavarian classic. The red E30 Touring, sitting slightly lower on an immaculate set of Alpina alloys definitely fitted the bill.
The car looked fresh off the production line, the owner has a car to cherish there. More classics lined the outskirts of the parking area; Beetles and this Type 3 Volkswagen stood between the newest crop to leave the factories. Exhausting the car park it was time to head indoors, where the big builds started to appear from the moment you set foot inside. Laid straight ahead in the hallway a line of cars on the PVW trade stand, and on the walkway around to the ticket desk remarkably well kept cars from some of the European attendees.

Tickets purchased, wristband adorned and into the main exhibition halls I went. First stop, the Rollhard stand. Starting to make my way around the trade stands it became apparent why so many people love this show. With so many cars being unveiled at once you start to miss things.
With a 6-week turnaround, they have transformed a once tired looking Datsun mini truck in to quite a show stopper. To most it may not be fully appreciated the work it takes to get a truck on the floor like this.
Opting to leave the chassis on show you can see the custom fabrication that had to take place to achieve this, chassis rails sitting millimetres from the ground.
Still with its original paintwork thanks to The Paint Box I am sure that over the rest the year Jay and Carl will have more plans for the Playdat. This looks like it is just the beginning. Another car that was hard to ignore was the Design4Automotive E Wrapped in a bold yellow with contrasting Rotiform OZTs, this is a Mercedes that gathers a lot of attention.
I go back to StudioInCar for a moment though. The closer you got to this M3 the more secrets you begin to notice. Then you start to notice that the 4-cylinder S14 engine appeared to be missing in favour of an S54 from the E46 M3. You then start to notice the OZ Racing wheels seem to fit nicely in the arches.
Maybe a little too nice… The big secret project Purist hides is the installation of an Airlift V2 kit. A bagged E30 M3. I did not think this day would come.
STANCEWORKS | UK MEET @ HERITAGE MOTOR CENTRE | TIEF & BREIT
As the owner of a bagged E24 myself, I have felt the upset of the purists out there first hand. Unsure of my feelings when I first heard this was on display, seeing it up close you can really understand the reasoning. It is a work of art.
A beautiful combination of form and function. Meandering back around the show it was time to be reminded that this was after all Ultimate Dubs, a car show for VAG vehicles. A car I admired from the Stance Works meet the previous year. Wrapped in mint green, with colour-coded Porsche twists and a baseball leather retrim this Audi most certainly looked fresh. Nearby sat a clean and original Mk1 golf complete with period features.
Purple appeared to be a colour of the event, this Audi A5 made the trip all the way from Spain to visit the show. Close by was a Porsche of a similar shade wearing a set of Rotiform FUCs, and in the other hall an Audi A3 with contrasting bronze touches and a Mk3 going for a slightly more sinister vibe.
With the weekend drawing to a close, I began to ponder. One that gets displayed outside of the usual show ring. Walking around, more cars began to fill the car park.
And slowly, a car park that in we struggled to half fill was overflowing with supporters. All braving the weather for a catch up. A buzz flowed around the venue, groups of people congregating to discuss the winter builds and chat about what we have all been up to since Gaydon.
As with all StanceWorks meetings, it is the attention to detail of the builds that help give the quality to the gatherings. Each enthusiast pushing the boundaries, allowing their imaginations to run wild and opening the minds of others. A pair of Aston Martin calipers tucked tightly behind a set of BBS RF faces on an early Golf, perfectly engineered wheel fitment allowing wheel fitment of barely millimeters between wheel and arch, chassis rail and ground, and hardline installs with precise angles leading the pipework into perfectly trimmed interiors - it was all on display at the meet.
StanceWorks had provided a comprehensive opening meet to the show season. A big thank you to all who made it possible. With an ever-increasing demand for parking space, the rest of the year can only provide us with positive feelings.
