SEMA SEMA SEMA.... That’s the big buzz this week....  we’re late with the newsletter because we wanted to do a bit of a SEMA  wrap up and let you know a little of what went on and what you can expect to see here as a result of the show.       We had a fantastic turnout at our booth and you can expect to see NO LESS than 14 New Businesses on board with us  by the end of the year !  Major players in our industry know that Hotrodhotline has been serving our industry with the latest news and product information since 1999 and they all now seem to want to be a part of what we do here.   Very EXCITING !   So stay tuned for that.  SCOOP !
Last year was the 50th show for our friend Blackie Gejeian and he had said at that time that it would be the last.....    Well we all hoped that Blackie would have a change of heart and sure enough...  He stopped by our booth at SEMA to let us know that the Show is ON for 2010...  March  19 - 21 at the Fresno  Convention Center.  

And of course our  friend Von Hot Rod stopped by .... our new shirts designed by Hot Rod are so popular we can hardly keep them in stock...  We want you to be sure to remember  Von Hot Rods Pinstripers Jamboree at the Grand National Roadster Show coming up in January. is the OFFICIAL Online Media  for the event so we’ll have lots of news starting next week on this show of shows !

We already have some show coverage online from  John Stimac,  Jerry Cook and a few pictures Jack took at the show but we have hundreds more pictures coming including all of the NEW PRODUCTS that were unveiled and all of the news from the floor of the show.... so stay tuned as we work to get these stories together for you.

Another great development at the show was the signing on of several new professional writers / photographers from our industry to do stories and features for us .....   we’re looking forward to adding to our already  fantastic group with more stories for your enjoyment.
