    "You did what?" an employee at the MGM asked, as Head of Sales John Acton and I stood before her, tired, and wearing the sort of cologne that can only be earned from nearly 30 hours of driving through the desert.  "That was pretty stupid," she continued.  Neither of us had the energy to...

    At SEMA, things aren't always as they appear.  Take this Karmann Ghia for example, finished in candy green and featuring a custom interior, it fits the mold of today's hot rod scene.  But where we'd expect to see some sort of big displacement air-cooled lump, we were instead greeted by a Subaru...

    SEMA's North Hall is a fairly diverse place, where nearly any company that considers themselves under the heading of "Collision and Repair" sets up shop.  As such, it's aisles seem to be a bit less trafficked than the more in-your-face South and Central halls, even though there are always more...

    The widebody look was definitely a thing this year at SEMA, but very few were able to pull it off as well as Legacy Innovations' Corrado.  Starting with the already aggressive factory fender treatment, Legacy added an additional 2" to each side via custom-made metal flares, allowing the Corrado...

    The SEMA Show is certainly no stranger to the more extreme expressions of automotive design, modification and fabrication, and the Bus dreamt up by Utah street rod builders SKJ Customs is one of the more impressive undertakings at this year's event.  Powered by a supercharged flat four engine...

    With last year's widebody S4 SEMA build, Southern California-based Allroad Outfitters set the bar quite high for outside-the-box display vehicles.  For this year, they've doubled down on Audi with a new widebody S3 and SQ5 on Volk Racing TE37s to sit alongside their S4.  But it's not their Audis...

    Every year the entire aftermarket community descends on Las Vegas, Nevada for the SEMA Show, and each time, the industry finds a way to outdo itself.  Regardless of personal preference or taste, the SEMA Show is guaranteed to have exactly what you're looking for somewhere within it's more than...

    As we progress towards SEMA, a steady stream of parts has begun to arrive at MOMO's American Headquarters, allowing their techs to finally get things underway.  And like many of the builds appearing at SEMA, this one is going to go down to the wire. Still waiting on certain pieces of the puzzle...

    With summer officially over, and the more basic among us flocking to Starbucks and their local breweries for Pumpkin-infused everything, those of us in the aftermarket industry have turned our attention to SEMA.  This gathering of automotive excess in Las Vegas brings out the best, and sometimes...

    Alright, we'll level with you.  We hit quite a few events throughout the year, and don't always have time to give each car, venue or event the love it deserves.  We've at times even been known to rediscover features from old backup hard drives.  It's simply an unfortunate side-effect of the...

    Tanner Foust has become pretty attached to the Volkswagen Beetle over the past year.  Aside from beating the snot out of his Beetle GRC during the last few months, he has also quietly been working with world-famous Porsche specialist Akria Nakai from Rauh Welt Begriff (RWB) and the minds at LTMW...

    SEMA has always been more about the wild side of the automotive aftermarket, but that does not mean that tame vehicles (or at least cars that seem that way) aren't welcome.  Case in point is Jason Crouch's Volkswagen CC. Starting with arguably one of the best looking sedans on the market...
