Prepare to drool, it’s Va va va vroom time. Day one and the SEMA show is firing on all 8 with a shot nitrous! Our preview was just that only a glance at the tip of the automotive awesomeness that is SEMA. Friends at the moment Las Vegas is mecca of aftermarket modified rides and were loving every minute of it. Straight out of the blocks the Battle of the Builders has begun and it is blazing hot. The judges had the unenviable task of narrowing record breaking number of entrants down to just 40. 10 Hot Rods, 10 Sport Compact, 10 Truck/Off-Road and an entirely new segment, 10 from the Young Guns category, builders that are 27 and under. Each and every one an incredible build. But guess what? We’re going to set our sites on the Hot Rods. The top 10 in the Hot Rod category are: Alan Johnson and his ’32 Ford Tudor, Andy Leach with his ’30 Ford Model A Coupe, Eddie Pettus with his 1963 Chevy Corvette, Larry Griffey with his ’54 Chevy Corvette, Mark Markin with a ’38 Graham 97, Jeremy Miranda and his ’69 Chevrolet Camaro, Phil and Jeremy Gerber with their ’69 Chevy Camaro, Scott Roth with his ’69 Chevy Camaro, Troy Ladd and his ’36 Packard Roadster, and last but not least Troy Trepanier with his ’29 Ford Model A Tudor. It is quite a list and virtually impossible for me to conceive of narrowing it down. But narrowing it down they will. Tomorrow the number will go from 40 to 12. This is going to be very interesting! Take a look for yourself and try to pick just one!
I wouldn’t leave you with just that to ponder over, there are a couple hundred more dream rides in the Event Coverage Gallery. Like I said be prepared to drool!
Stay tuned another full day of sensational SEMA coming right up!
Till the next time – Keep on Kruzin!
