Seen Around SEMA

Sensible Driver explores the sights and sounds of SEMA, the Specialty Equipment Market Association's annual showcase in Las Vegas. 

Equipment manufacturers, car care experts and auto enthusiasts converge at the Las Vegas Convention Center every year around Halloween to present the best and newest in the automotive industry. 

Here's some sights from around the convention:

And another power slide.

The car registered as number 21 on the National Historic Vehicle Register also made an appearance. The 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback Bullitt '559 appeared in the '68 movie Bullitt. It's owned by Sean Kiernan of Hendersonville, Tennessee.

SEMA is very much an art festival for vehicles. It's a showcase for airbrushers, like Ed Beard Jr and his "DragonLord Van". 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flat 12 Gallery, a speciality dealership in Dallas, put a Corvette engine in this Volvo V06 and gave it away to a lucky guest at SEMA. OPTIMA Batteries sponsored the promotion. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And what would a car show be without a classic Chevrolet?
