By no means am I well-traveled, but I do consider myself lucky to have attended some major automotive events which shaped the scene today. For the old school heads, events like Showoff, Battle, HIN, and Tokyo Auto Salon should immediately come to mind. If you resided on the west-coast consider yourself lucky to have grown up around the scene. But for us International folk, it has always been a challenge to participate and experience this culture we love. One event that has managed to elude my travels was SEMA. I don’t know why it’s never been on my flight plan but I decided to cross off that notch this year with a trip to this infamous show. So off I went to Vegas with a few friends in tow to experience and capture my take on SEMA 2013. I hope you enjoy the photos and keep in my mind this is strictly from my personal perspective. I didn’t capture everything but this should give you a good glimpse if you didn’t attend. If this wasn’t enough, check out additional photos here.

Spotted Magnus Walker!

So, um… there were a lot of Rocket Bunny FR-S projects in attendance…

When a brand new 2014 Lexus IS350 powerplant won’t do, just swap in a 2JZGTE!

Liberty Walk clearly killed it this year. Catch this 3-series going up and down here.

And finally, the car everyone’s been talking about – the Liberty Walk Ferrari F458.
