SEMA 2011 - Day 1
The winners were (in the order above) the Chev Camaro, Fiat 500, Ford F-Series and Jeep Wrangler. Congratulations to everyone.
After breakfast I walked the complete North and Center Hall. I didn't try to make press conferences, my intent is just to see the show. I can't list every single exhibitor, and I didn't try to collect stuff from each, but I did collect product info from the ones that really interested me. I was impressed by the Dynacorn International Inc. display of the "new" old cars they produce, including the just announced 1964-66 Ford Mustang Convertible. Their full lineup includes the '67 Camaro, '69 Camaro convertible, '69 Firebird and convertible, '70 Chevelle and convertible, '47-'50 Chevy pickup cab, '55-'57 Chevy pickup cab, '68 Mustang Fastback, '70 Mustang Fastback, '67 Mustang convertible, and '70 Challenger couple.
The show isn't just about hot rods, muscle cars and performance parts although that's what I focused on. If you are a shop or parts house owner there are hundreds of exhibitors with stuff to fill your shelves or help you run your business.
I'm heading back tomorrow and probably Thursday. I'll write more after that.
