Given the size and significance of that annual Las Vegas auto extravaganza known as the SEMA Show (hosted by the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association), you’ll find all kinds of coverage in a variety of editorial outlets, both print and digital. So what makes CAR BUILDER’s feature any different? Several aspects.

To start with, we’ve been attending this event for several decades, and have the advantage of historical perspective, having seen all sorts of trends come and go, and we focus on those vehicles and items of special interest to seasoned car builders.

Also, we tend to be a lot more inclusive and even irreverent in our approach. So with the dual advantages of both hindsight and heresy, you’ll see stuff here that you might not find anywhere else!
