Dan is one of those local guys here in Milwaukee that you see him coming from a mile away because of his bright car, extremely low ride height, and impressively large beard. As part of the Function:Error crew, Dan is one of the very few non-Subaru cars in the crowd but one of my personal favorites. He recently converted his car from being one of the lowest rolling static cars to an even lower rolling bagged car with the help of Lower Standards’ very own Jason and Chubs doing the install. If you’re rolling through Milwaukee, keep an eye out for the bagged taxi. Dan is one of the nicest guys I know and he would love to give you a hug if you see him in person. (more…)
On a last minute decision, we decided to make the long haul from Milwaukee down to Chicago to attend the Tuner Galleria event at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. Having never been to Tuner Galleria before and knowing what Chicago is capable of, all I knew was to expect a high number of even higher quality cars.
A short video showing a little bit of Kyle’s e21 build in progress. Kyle’s e21 will have a full tube chassis, Pontiac big block under the hood, caged, raced, and daily driveable. The exterior will be kept mostly stock so watch out for this thing on the streets.
Although 2013 isn’t quite over yet, it’s been a year full of new adventures, road trips, and surprises. Along the way I tried to document as much as I could through photographs so I could remember the good times and share them with friends that were there and friends that couldn’t make it. (more…)
With a very rookie-esque skillset at filming and editing videos, I gave it a go one night while we were hanging out at the shop. (more…)
H2o is the show of shows if you’re into the European modified car scene. When I made the final decision to take a long weekend off of work and make the trip from Milwaukee to Ocean City, MD for H2oi, I couldn’t have been more excited. (more…)
This is the first of many short features of cars from people who help make LS what is it. We want to show who these people are and the car they choose to express themselves with. This is Dylan Chartier in our first installment of The Lowfiles.
When first receiving the invitation to the 1st ever Quality Counts Pop-up meet I was expecting a modest turnout, dominated mostly by Subaru. Lower Standards rolled into the show fashionably late, scraping underbody up 4 stories of the parking structure. The turnout was impressive with a good mix of JDM, euro, and even American cars.

As trends come and go in the Volkswagen scene, one style has seemed to not only hold it’s own, but taken off in popularity over the last few years. OEM Plus is arguably one of the cleanest styles in the import car scene. Maybe it’s the subtlety of the modifications that make one do a double take. Maybe it’s the intricately well planned simplicity of creating a modified “version” of what Volkswagen would have produced if they churned out factory modified cars from Wolfsburg or Puebla.
Enter Matt Christensen’s 1993 Cabriolet…. (more…)
