The madness that is The SEMA Show is upon us yet again! We’ve been here since Sunday snapping pictures, shaking hands, squeezing baby cheeks and doing our best to keep our feet from falling apart. This year we focused on finding new projects and builds we hadn’t seen in the past. That includes vehicles that simply got a makeover from years past. Inevitably, several rides make appearances year after year. We hope that in this gallery and those to come later in the week, you also see something that you’ve not seen before.
We know most of you are looking at this on your smartphone right now but do yourself a favor and revisit the page when you get in front of a big screen. Galleries are always best viewed on large screens. Give your favorites a click and let us know your thoughts down below. Stay tuned for much more throughout the rest of the week. If you want to get the scoop before we gather up the next gallery, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
We cannot forget to say Thank You to all of the wonderful builders, brands and companies that invited us to stop by for a visit. Thank you so much for letting us spend some time with you to learn more about what you’ve been working on. Excited for what’s ahead!
Straight from Canada, this 900 horsepower Steampunk Copper creation is packing a turbo the size of your duffel bag.
If John Wick drove a Cadillac instead of the muscle car.
The color combo on this 1952 Skyine Deluxe Kustom is nailed.
The unmistakable Ford GT.
Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s 900 horsepower Ford Mustang RTR.
We love seeing land speed represented at the show. Team Vesco has been involved with breaking land speed world records since 1933.
Chris Carlson Hot Rods 1949 Buick Sedanette 56 S. A true work of art.
This Plymouth looks like it came straight out of a comic book movie. We want one.
The Chevrolet Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo Concept was developed as part of the Vision Gran Turismo Project, celebrating automotive innovation and design. Developed exclusively with Sony Playstation and Gran Turismo 6.
Yes, that is The Batmobile and it’s much larger in person than expected.
Tried to get security to let us move the barrier for a photo. No dice.
1969 Ford Mustang GT. Mothers Polish always hits us in the feels.
What in the world is that you say? Well, it’s the worlds fastest log of course. Seriously, it holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the fastest motorized log by traveling 76.625 kph (42.64 mph).
Have you seen a full carbon fiber body Ford GT before? Now you have. Click on this and save it as your desktop wallpaper. You’re going to want to keep looking.
The Mopar booth is always exciting and filled with things for attendees to do. This year they teamed up with the Bondurant Driving Experience and hooked up a Dodge Challenger to a triple-wide game display with real life vehicle controls and movement.
The one and only modified Tesla Model X we’ve seen. Nice work Toyo Tires.
The infamous three-wheeled, two seat Vanderhall. Two very narrow seats mind you.
Rutledge Wood brought out his Toyota Tundra and this crazy three wheeled scoot. The truck didn’t grab us even with it’s loud paint, but this 5HP man size tricycle certainly did.
Did PPG hand out free orange paint this year? If they did, genius. We do love orange but we have to wonder what brought on such a strong showing this year for the color? We counted over 40 vehicles on day one alone.
The flat orange + matte grey combo looks like something you’d see in Sin City. The movie not Vegas, wait.
After five minutes we gave up waiting for this Camaro to turn into a transformer. Don’t tell us you don’t see the face in there?
Something you’d most likely see at Hot Import Nights or your local Sunday Cruiser show, not SEMA. We’re happy this Datsun made it.
Long, low, and lean. This is Big Daddy.
We leave you with this Chevrolet Chevelle SS 4×4 because we’re at SEMA and of course you can do that. Tomorrow we will bring you something from the lifted side of life here in Vegas. Trucks and oddities you’d find favoring the dirt. See you then.
