The SEMA show is over, and in this case what happened in Vegas will not stay in Vegas. The Show was great, more than just cool cars, eye candy and parts. All the display halls were full, unlike past years. Huge numbers of people attended, the correct people, not inflated numbers with all the shop rats. People who were actually looking for product, not just swag. Another interesting observation; everyone was really up-beat and smiling. This is a good thing, because it means customers are starting to spend again, things are looking up for the automotive hobby. Over the next few weeks I will be talking about some of the new products unveiled at the SEMA show. I was once again invited to be a New Product Judge, and I found some great new products. I was still confused how people can submit an exhaust system as new, to each their own, I did find some great 'new' products. Watch this space....

  1. Kevin, we just past paths in Vegas. I was at the Luxor the 10th, 11th & 12th for my grandson's wedding. My son, Tim, said he heard about some special car deal in town. When we were checking out there was a grey Fisker (sp) (Holland) electric waiting for pickup with a Calif. Mfg. tag.

    I drive a 1983 Datsun 280ZX that needs a little work on the cooling system. Took it to Laguna Seca a few years ago for some hot laps. Love the corkscrew and turn 6. 5 speed, just fun to drive. You might enjoy Tim's blog Tim was teaching basic when he was in 8th grade and built vacuum tube amps in the late '80's. & '90's.

    My blog, is mostly about my hobbies and such.

    I think we both shook them up on the Engineer title thread. I realize it was a UK site, but felt compelled to voice my experience and thoughts. Keep in touch.
