Some time ago I
wrote about the latest wave to sweep across parking
lots around the world. It’s something that’s been
around since the inception of the car but of late been revived
to unbelievable “heights”.
Now truth be told this is still not my cup of java but after the
very well put together KING OF SLAM event I can definitely see
I can only relate the Stance movement to the runways of New York
during fashion week. Only the best models walk the catwalk and
everybody is envious of the models but in reality nobody wants
to walk around on 9inch heels all day.
I have to commend the organisers on the awesome venue. The effort
put into the setup was prevalent on entrance and I enjoyed the
fact that there was enough space outside to have a mini shoot
with very obliging ‘Stances’.
Inside the venue was also not disappointing at all with the camouflage
theme so apt as most of the cars on show seem to transform when
stationery which became apparent when preparing to leave after.
I really have a new found appreciation for the stance guys because
like in true motorsport there is a lot of preparation and setup
to achieve the desired end product. These guys really get down
and dirty to look this good.
The selection of cars was also very diverse. It’s really
apparent that no brand is left safe on any level anymore and with
either air, coilover or angle grinder, anything can be made super
For now I think only the bikes are safe from these guys but I
have seen pics from overseas so I am positive that somebody is
busy in a garage somewhere.
Slaapstad seems to more awake than I thought and the underground
movement is surfacing fast. Glad to see the guys have a lot more
respect for our men in those CCT-GTI’s and driving high
and parking low. Check out the rest of the gallery below.
