Event Coverage ~ 2011 SEMA Show ~ Las Vegas

This week the annual SEMA show took place in Las Vegas. This is the automotive trade show that many wait all year for to release new products and new builds. This year was no different. There was a lot to see and a lot that debuted at the show.  Stephanie & I made a day trip to the show on Wednesday. Yes, I said day trip! We were on the road at 4am and back home by 10:30pm. The show is from 9am to 5pm so we had a lot to see in a short amount of time. Anyone that has ever been to SEMA knows that you can only see a small percentage of the show in one day. We came, we saw, we met with companies and individuals so it was a successful trip for us. Lots of things in the works for 2012.

This Bugatti Veyron was the talk of the show for many. Matte white paint job, rimmed up and center stage in the DUB Magazine area.

No shortage of Ferraris in Vegas!

Always great seeing our friends Toon$ and Julie!

How low can you go?

My friend Mark Arcenal of Fatlace had this RWB Porsche in the Falken Tire booth.

Lowriders were once again featured at the SEMA show. It is nice to see the industry recognize the hard work and craftsmanship that goes into building one of these rides. Weather they want to admit it or not many of the  builders from other custom car cultures are influenced by the artisians who build Lowriders.

I believe both Joey and Albert won awards at the show. Yes, even though it is a trade show, awards are still presented.

That’s all for today! Time to go through some more photos!
