I started working on the feature for my old truck this morning (yay?) but I realized that I have out my license plates in most of them because I am super paranoid like that and I couldn’t get them all done before work today, so ya it’s not up. However I figured this would be a good time to big up one of my favorite automotive blogs:
I know it seems somewhat counterproductive to shout out another blog but I really respect what Joe has going on over at and his blog is one of the main reason this blog exists. He noticed an niche that needed some exposure in the blog world (Hondas and Acuras) and set forth to represent for them and his scene without the bullshit. Which is the heart of what is going on here as well.
I check daily and coming from the average BMW owner mentality I was never really a Honda guy but thanks to cars like this, , and blogs like I have come to respect them.
If you like well written blogs that really capture what the car tuning culture should be about then head over and take a look at The Chronicles just be sure to come back to stanceiseverything.com when you are done because I’m working my way up to big things as well.
Sorry for the lateness of today’s post, I had to be up really early today to get my car into the body shop to fix a few scratches from a recent misjudgment. That all worked out and I am back to looking fresh to death though. I plan to feature my death truck (92 Blazer) soon but until I have time to sit down and write about that ordeal I figured I should throw up some quick random cars for those of you who check this blog everyday (and I thank you). Also I am placing an order for some stickers today, get stoked!
The concept of theme Tuesdays here on Grosirbajuanak is simple, every Tuesday I pick a theme and post a collection of vehicles with that theme that meet the stance criteria (modified suspension that fit the vehicles overall theme). This weeks theme Tuesday topic is: E30s
As a former e30 owner its about time I posted a gang of e30s on this site. E30s will forever hold a place in my heart. The take to drops and rims very well and other than an extremely low oil pan it’s all gravy.
Have any suggestions for a Theme Tuesday Topic? Let me know in the comments.
The VW I wrote about last week (vrsexy ) recently got pulled over and pulled off the road in a Ministry of Transportation spot check. The owner shared is personal account on two of the boards I frequent:
“This is a friendly warning to all the modified cars, tonight my car was pulled off the street for being low, they had Mavis fully blocked off with two MTO cruisers and one MTO van. They pulled over and inspected every car at the Central Parkway Tim Hortons
Another set of MTO cruisers (Van and Charger) were also set up on Britannia and Mavis (Terry Fox Tim Hortons) and were inspecting cars, they literally pulled over every single modified car..
One cop told my friend who has a civic “We are coming down to Mississauga more since we notice that there are a lot of modified cars here…”
My car is pretty low and I was expecting to get a ticket, but didn’t think they would block off a major road like that…
He put my ownership paper between my tire and fender and told me to turn, when I did, he laughed and told me your ownership is stuck between the two so now we are towing you car…
I received a court summons and was told to raise it up, take pictures with a camera that has a date on it, and the prosecutor will try and help you out…”
My biggest issue, and most car enthusiasts issue in general, with cars getting pulled for being ‘too low’ is that there is no standard practice for testing if a car is too low and nor is there any specific part of the Highway Traffic Act that states when a car falls into the category of being too low and therefore unsafe to drive. Whether or not you get a ticket or have your plates removed is completely up to the officer that has pulled you over and that is wrong. If this law is to be enforced it should be documented plain and simple.
The best advice I can give you guys to avoid having your cars pulled off the road is this:
No part of your car can touch the ground but your wheels, nothing can be touching your wheels but the ground, and generally try not to drive like a jack ass (not saying everyone who gets pulled for this does) it just hurts the rest of us.
I Didn’t hit up any shows this weekend so I am digging into my bag of local message board finds for this mornings post. I drove an e30 for almost eight years so I still have a lot of friends in the local BMW community and the cars I am posting today just happen to be some of those friends. These cars can be seen holding down the streets of the GTA.
This one was inspired by a video I saw over on the . I have re posted it here with a few other amazing wheelstands I found on The Mustang one however is easily the longest wheelstand I have seen done by a car that was not set up specifically to do wheel stands.
Well it seems there has been a changing of the guard for e36 convertibles in the GTA. Since the last one got sold it opened up the door for a new kid on the block. The new kid said to hell with the door and smashed down the wall Kool-Aid man style, this car is off the hook.
The owner of this ride spent a lot of time (and money) restoring the body and building the wheels you currently see on this car and it all paid off in spades. There have been a few e36 convertibles on Max that have done the low BBS game but I think this one just .
I am sure a lot of you may not have ever heard of a Lada let alone seen one in person (I have not) so when I Spotted this quick progressing build over on I figured it was worth sharing since it proves that with a little drop and elbow grease damn near anything can look cool.
Sickfinga is crazy about his weird European cars so I will have a watchful eye eye on this odd little build and keep you guys in the loop. There is talk of spacers next….
I have been to a few Street Classics shows before and I always have a good time so when I saw a flier for their Pre 1955, Hot Rods – Roadsters -Rat Rods, show I made sure to stick it on my fridge so I would remember to cover it.
While the show was smaller than previous Street Classics shows I had been too (due to age specification) the quality of cars was still amazing.
We young punks are not the only ones with a sense of humor
Vintage trucks just have a certain look about them that makes them unique. I think it has to do with the balance of round fenders with strong body lines.
Chopped, dropped, and channeled, no bondo here
While technically all the cars on this page could fit into this category I am going to use it to separate the other rods from the Highboys and Lowboys
Ford Highboys and Lowboys
In this weeks Theme Tuesday I alluded to the fact that it was one inspired by an event. Well this was the event.
Hopefully I can make it this show again next year and see more classics.

I’ve loved 32-33 Ford Highboys (fenderless) and lowboys (full fendered versions) since I was a kid and since I saw a few at a car show this weekend (coverage to follow later today) I figured why not post up a few awesome ones from across the internet today.
