Hi all I'm Paul is otherwise known as StanceAuto, is200_lex , Stanceautomag

Founder of this Magazine and Manchester-born, I now live in Cheshire. I'm a massive car and van enthusiast. I've been customising, buying and selling cars and vans all my life (it runs in the family). I'm the owner of a Lexus IS200, fully modified and supercharged for that extra whoosh. It is my latest passion, but I may end up doing another car.

I run this site in my spare time as I'm a self-employed courier by day delivering Medical, Bioscience and Air Freight. I'm proud to say I'm playing my part during the Covid pandemic, delivering much needed medical supplies.

I started this Magazine so I can play my part and get involved in the car street scene as it is getting so big now. It has lots of fantastic cars and great people with fantastic stories. I hope to bring you lots of cool content and bring 'like-minded' people together as a community so that we can all enjoy the same passion.

     

Head of International Photography

I started my career as a sports writer/photographer for Sports Illustrated covering the University of South Carolina Gamecocks in Football, Basketball, and Baseball. 

Relocating to San Antonio, Texas, I began working for European Auto Group where he is most known for the episodic vlogs regularly posted on YouTube and the publications featuring his photography to include Road & Track, CarBuzz, Jalopnik, Dupont Registry and many more, highlighting the only gated six-speed manual Ferrari 430 Scuderia in the world, the ONLY factory platform manual MKV Supra and the world's first gated six-speed manual Lamborghini Huracan, built by European Auto Group. 

I also shoot for Slammedenuff Clean Culture and now Stance Auto, featuring the cleanest car on the planet 

I fully believe in hard work, determination, and always progressing as he strives every day, to become better and better whether it's with a camera, editing, or producing quality content in any field.

Author, also Admin for Stance Auto Magazine Page on Facebook

Most know me as Andrew Paul. That’s kind of a ‘stage name’ so-to-speak from my days as a Wedding and Beauty photographer (long story). I’ve always been into the motor scene ever since owning my very first car, a 1983 Ford Cortina Crusader (God I loved that car…). Since then I have owned too many to list. Plus, I did 3 years of buying and selling cheap runarounds during the late ’90s on the south coast to support my DJ’ing income. From an editorial point of view, I have worked for commercial magazines and directories in the advertising sector. By day I’m a consultant in Pharmaceuticals but I’m also an Automotive and Commercial photographer in my spare time.

Hi all! My name is Elliot Haywood,

Rep and Moderator for Stance Auto Magazine Group on Facebook

I own a Nissan 370z Nismo Tech called Lucy, of which I am very proud of, but I have plenty of plans for her so follow me on Instagram @that_nismo.z to stay updated. I'm based in Southampton where I work for the University. I have only been on the car scene since I was 17 and the first car I started the car scene with was a 2012 Suzuki Swift Sport, I named Evie, which I travelled over 250 miles to collect and drive back. Brilliant car but it was time to move on to the 370z Nismo. I am an admin with Southern Modified UK based in Southampton, and you can find me at local meets and most shows so come and say hi if you see me. The car scene is a truly brilliant place, and there are few things I look forward to as much as a show weekend.

My name is Carla,

aged 24, born and residing in Jersey, Channel Islands.

Head Author and Moderator for Stance Auto Magazine Group on Facebook

I have been a petrol head all my life, growing up with a family of car enthusiasts and being introduced to the world of motocross just at the age of 5.

My occupation is very different from my hobbies and passions. Unfortunately, I am stuck behind a desk all day working as a Trust Officer for high net worth individuals.  Luckily, I have a few clients who are also petrol heads and make my life easier.

I am new to the Stance Auto team and sure am loving every single thing about it.

I currently drive a Honda Civic Type R and absolutely love the JDM community
