TUNER INVASION

By JOHN GRAFMAN

What would you do with nearly 30 billion dollars? The correct answer is "buy aftermarket equipment." That's the figure spent last year, according to SEMA. The Specialty Equipment Market Association held its annual International Auto Salon (IAS) at the Convention Center in LA, April 2-4. Words really don't capture the moment as well as some choice pictures. Our gallery shows both the efforts provided by the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and the aftermarket companies. All right, we threw in a few good shots of the girls too.

The show must go on! Check out Tuner Invasion, Part Two.
