SEMA, for those that don’t know, is an event held in Las Vegas every November and it is the Mecca of automotive goodness. Every year thousands of auto enthusiasts from around the world flock to this jewel in the desert, known as Las Vegas, to see what aftermarket parts can be expected for the upcoming year. This is also a time for people to see how the many hundreds of cars on display can be modified to gain the most horsepower, torque and aerodynamics. The owners/builders of these cars proudly display their labor-of-love to see the many reactions of people in attendance.
If you are an enthusiast and have yet to attend a Sema show, don’t hesitate, book early and save your dollars for this experience, it just might change your life, no joke. Last year when I attended I was just there to cover the event and instead I got sucked into the auto craze, Thanks to Miller Motorsports Park (they held drift car ride-alongs last year). While getting a ride I quickly realized I wanted to build my own drift car. Over the last year I’ve been building a drift car that we will be using in some pro/AM competitions for 2014, so keep an eye out for that. This event is by far one of the best auto galleries and places to meet some of the best people in the industry, it’s also a great place to make some lifelong connections.
If you come to Sema make sure to check out every hall and take your time, there are so many cars, girls and gadgets that will blow your mind. It might seem a bit overwhelming at first, but if you go in with a game plan as to what your must see items or booths are, you’ll have a great experience. If you were not one of the many thousands that attended, as always, here’s a little picture recap, enjoy.
