SEMA with Street Standard
On Thursday Matt Haugen from Street Standard stopped by the Car Street Journal conference room at Sema. Matt has been attending Sema for 8 years, and for 7 of those years he has had one of his cars in the Sema show. Matt got into working on cars with his dad when he was young. Helping work on Hot Rods and such at home. Matt’s first Sema he brought his Toyota Tundra. Years later Matt was thinking about starting his own business and build some bad-ass cars. With the help from Cory Hosford, they came up with Street Standard. Street Standard is a car performance go to shop. They can get anything from body kits from Liberty Walk and Rocket Bunny down to Wilwood Brakes. Matt has 2 personal cars here at Sema this year. Which are a 1 of 1 Liberty Walk Lamborghini and a Rocket Bunny Nissan 350z.
The Liberty Walk Lamborghini is a 1 of 1 kit. There is about 20 kits made for that style car but this kit was customize by Liberty Walk exactly for this lambo and will not be made again. The Lamborghini is sponsored by Street Standard, Liberty Walk, and Ceramic Pro.
