About this product:
While the SEMA Show is the industry’s premier trade event, it is also one of the most fascinating displays of automotive excellence to be found anywhere. Some of the best and most creative designers and builders in the world craft rolling works of art for the Las Vegas gathering, and the cars and trucks they bring to town are a show all their own. For the past few years, SEMA News has previewed some of these automotive sculptures, and we’ve kept the tradition going for 2010. Enjoy these sights, and make ready to see even more in Las Vegas!
