SEMA ROLLS ON

By JOHN GRAFMAN

The SEMA show for 2004 offers so much to look at that we don't know where to start. There is something for everyone, and then some!

Barrett-Jackson auctions is well known for the classics that come across the auction block. This is just one of the hundreds.

Factory Five Racing shows what a little imagination and some dollars can buy.

The GM display showcases many cars but it's hard to beat the style on this GTO.

Hot Wheels deserves the distinct honor for the longest line at the show. No models, except for the mini cars themselves. Not to mention they are signed by Larry Wood too!

The parking lot handled the overflow from inside. This is just part of the excess.

A new sport that is catching our attention is UROC. These vehicles can seemingly do the impossible and the drivers have nerves of steel.

Nissan, as does many other companies, has its own in-house tuning by the name of NISMO.

The show within the show. An episode of Overhaulin' was being taped right before our eyes. This includes the whole crew and Chip Foose as the man who never sleeps.

What show would this be with out some race cars?

The Acura A-Spec line now has tricked out the RL, watch out Audi, BMW...

This Mercedes SLR, as rare as it might be, has a rather special set of rims to make this custom car even more so.

Volvo XC90 takes on a new flair in foul weather colors and humorous moose badging (just a bit similiar to Ferrari's logo).

A Foose custom Cadillac XLR with numerous mods including a stainless steel roof panel by Quality Metalcraft Inc. takes the somewhat ordinary and turns it into extraordinary.
