We had the opportunity to go to the premiere aftermarket auto show in the world, the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, NV. Anything you can think of for your car is there; plus 63 other things you didn’t even know you had to have. This being our first time at SEMA it was overwhelming to say the least. The show encompassed most of the 3,200,000 sq. ft. of the Las Vegas convention center. To say it was large is an understatement.

The show had 25+ cars vying for commemorative plaques featuring the fallen towers. Team Swat , Team Aftermath, and Team JDM Fresh all took home a hand full of plaques. The racers had three categories: fastest e. t., best reaction time, and quickest 60’ time. Great [...]
