I prefer the easy ability to categorize people over here versus facebook. But Jesus, this place feels dead.

Maybe it feels dead because there's fewer garbage posts being constantly thrown on your feed?

Pinstripping is alive and well in the Kustom motorcycle circles (particularly bobbers, choppers, and baggers)... there's just been a noticeable slow fade from the automotive world, staying in lockstep with the frequency of everyday sighting of 30-50's cars as these collectibles are continuing their fight for preservation from the outdoor elements. The problem, in my opinion, is one of applicable aesthetics. In the 60-70's +, automotive design changed: more planar surfaces and standardized dimensions that unified car bodies into more cohesive forms. A good pinstripe over the headlight of a 40's ford is like a necklace draped down a busty chest. But a pin stripe floret on the trunk of a 70's Pontiac-brick is more aesthetically akin to a tramp stamp hovering above some flat'n flabby. Pinstriping is at it's best when it can accentuate a form and shape, 3-dimensional visual interest and visual tension between components which more moderns cars lack in comparison, with the sole exception of more exotic variants of coarse.

Precision German Performance is, bar none, the best independent BMW shop in town. They've taken great care to ensure my cars stay on the road, and the costs are always incredibly fair. There's direct interaction with the owners, and after experiencing the work and character of a large number of independent BMW repair shops in Southern California, I can say with confidence I wouldn't go anywhere else.
