Every year, Las Vegas, NV plays host to the most anticipated automotive aftermarket expo in the world, the SEMA Show, which brings together tuners, car customizers and countless enthusiasts to showcase their latest and greatest products and builds. The 2012 SEMA Show (from October 30-November 2) proved that the industry is recovering dramatically after being hit hard after the recession tightened everyone’s pockets in 2008. With attendance numbers up for both visitors and exhibitors, this year’s show at the Las Vegas Convention Center featured nothing but the hottest custom rides, most innovative aftermarket parts and, of course, the after show parties.
Highlights from the show included: a slew of street-and off-road-ready Jeeps, such as LeBron James’ gold Jeep JK Wrangler built by Ultimate Auto; more than 50 customized versions of the new Scion F-RS and Subaru BRZ models; La Reina, which was crowned “Lowrider Truck of the Year”; Snoop announced his collaboration with Mister Cartoon’s Sanctiond car care line; and the debut of the 2013 DUB Edition Toyota Avalon, which was showcased with Toyota!
