SEMA - The Largest Automotive Aftermarket show on the planet !
Pictures by: Jack Lawford

  The SEMA show is the annual trade show of the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association ... the trade organization for virtually everything automotive. This year was the 40th year for the show, which began back in 1967 in Dodger Stadium with 98 exhibitors. This year there were over 2000 exhibitors taking up over a Million Square Feet of Exhibit space..... Now that’s some WALKING ! 
   Our first stop was at the Kicker Booth to see “Impression”, an awesome creation by Robbie Acevedo of Pacific Coast Customs. This fantastic truck won a “Mothers Choice” award at the show and it was well deserved !  Robbie is a young guy of just 22 ..... and we’re sure we’ll be hearing his name for many years to come !  Robbie is helping us out with the Young Rodders Contest each month and is donating Pacific Customs T Shirts and Posters to the winners... Watch for that announcement later this week. 

 Without a doubt... this is one of the finest pieces of work that Jack has ever seen..... Check it out....












Most booths had a great car showing off the product.....


  Very often the crowds were shoulder to shoulder.....



We are always running into Hotrodhotline visitors... This is Donna Cardia’s mothere ...Donna is one of our Young Rodder contenders.



 The B & M Racing booth was always busy with lots of new products on display... but we did have a chance to talk to Jim Adolph for a little bit and reminisce about Big Al’s career in Racing....


 Our friends at the NHRA were there with lots of info about current racing programs and lots of history too....

This is really where it all started..... this hobby we call Rodding... if a few guys hadn’t gotten together way back when.... we wouldn’t have the industry and hobby we now have.... You can find out all about the history of the NHRA and lots of great exhibits and shows put on by the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum.
