This week is one of my favorite weeks of the year — it’s SEMA time in Las Vegas.
SEMA is where the automotive aftermarket comes together to show off what it’s been working on for the past 12 months. This is where the newest trends in both new and old cars take hold, and it’s the best place on earth for a car builder who’s looking for the latest and greatest in carburetors, fuel injection, suspension, brakes, tires, wheels, tools, paint, engines, and more.
Granted, SEMA is full of everything the automotive aftermarket has to offer, which does mean a lot of lifted trucks and stanced imports. But there are also a bunch of items here that apply to classic American cars as well — especially for those owners who are looking to modify their cars for increased comfort and safety to support more frequent use in the modern world.
I’ll be on-site starting today, documenting what I think are the best new old-car items to feature in ACC. Anything in particular you want to see? Let me know in the comments below. And look for our photo spread from the event in the next issue of ACC!
