Default Anyone want to share SEMA2012 pictures on this thread?

Hey all,

Went to sema last year, posted some awesome pics of it here. Had a blast with the G8 vegas and sema crew, and saw an in-the-flesh ute that I made a terribly dark (gopro without light!) youtube video about. I even enjoyed the ZR-1 Hotlaps... talk about a rush!





Who is going to SEMA 2012?

Who will share some of their favorite pics each day of the show?

I already saw a G8 widebody.... and my favorite color too!

My company has 2 booths. Right next to each other in the South Hall. Just below the Mopar booth. Here are some pics. Hopefully I get to get out and see the show this year. Last year I spent the ENTIRE week locked in my booth.

It's a trade show for the industry, I do not have an "in" in the car industry. In the shooting/sporting industry however I do, but not so much use for this

The official Chevrolet SEMA pictures show seems to be here:

https://theblock.com/

I see several shots of a maroon "Impala" but with that platform being discontinued, I wonder why they bothered to put it up at sema. Could it be similar front/rear to what the upcoming Chevy SS might look like? I know the side lines of that Maroon Impala are definately not zeta, but the front bumper could be imagined to fit on a zeta, no?

Look forward to meeting you.

Here's a few pics I got today. Snuck up to mopar booth on the way to the bathroom. I saw they had a cover over this thing Saturday when I was setting up my booth. I'm not a dodge guy, but this thing is beautiful.

The other is Rutledge Wood from Top Gear USA. He stopped in my booth. Really knows his cars. We have an old crx that has a new civic si motor in it, and he knew exactly what it was just by looking at it (for those who speak "rice", I guess its called a "k -swap". He's the most humble and personable celeb I've ever met.

There's a few people from Oz over for SEMA this year, one being the owner of HDT Special Vehicles in Aust. Fingers crossed he brings back some funky new kit for us down here.

You could have sent a nice front end conversion out over this way too

A few reps from my company are out there now after Sandy delayed their flights on Monday and Tuesday. I wish I could go out but I'm not that high up or important enough to go. Maybe someday.

The Impala pictured is the new production 2014 Impala built of the global Epsilon II architecture. The same platform underpins the US Buick Lacrosse, Chevrolet Malibu, and Cadillac XTS. The old W-body Impala has zero in common with this new platform, other than name and it drives the same set of wheels, the front.

There will be some family resemblance in styling, but from spy shots the new Impala front clip won't portable to the SS RWD sedan.

Thanks for the clarification, Joemac. too bad that GM couldn't use SEMA to hint or gain interest in the SS, but this doesn't surprise me anymore, GM.

Met a couple super cool Aussies. They own a car dealership there. They're specialty is Holden and they customize most of them. They gave me their Facebook that had 500+ pics of cars they've done.

I'm beat...thank God SEMA is over.

Phone died friday, Buford took alot of pics though. Most of the GMH crew followed him around cause he was our ride up there. Car pooling ftw. The trans-am converstions were a nice touch. Also talked to a aussie at Magnacharger for a good half hour. Be on the look out for a new maggie, low profile, no rear cogs (YES!) and new styling. I want one so bad i almost walked off with the display one. Should be out March-May and it does work for the L76 with DOD enabled....anyway i'll see if Buford can post some pics he took, or i'll just steal them off his facebook page.
