Despite all of the controversy surrounding the world’s most colossal stage of automotive excess, there are always gems to be found throughout the grounds.
In an age where visual noise saturates every facet of our lives, the SEMA Show not only embellishes the excess, but also single-handedly shapes the upcoming year of modification trends under its roofs. Through all of the noise, I’ve found I can always narrow down a select group of standouts.
Gathering an excess of 180,000 manufacturers, buyers, and other assorted industry personnel in one place, the 51st anniversary of the SEMA Show was the biggest and best yet. My Vans and adidas traversed more than nine miles each day of the event to bring you the highlights.
