|The 2003 SEMA show was held at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV from Nov. 4-8. For Bob and me, it's an 8-day long work week! Bob leads the DC Image Team and had 25 new Image Team vehicles and 7 SkunkWerks vehicles. There were also a number of repeat vehicles. The SEMA show is the largest automotive aftermrket parts show in the country. The show encompasses 2.5 million square feet of display space. It's a lot of walking, talking and work!!
For us, the week-long event is highlighted by various evening activities also, including a Primedia reception, the SEMA Banquet and the BF Goodrich event at the Las Vegas Speedway. We got to ride in a ASA Stock car 5 laps around the "bullring", a ride in the SCORE off-road vehicles, a ride in the Rock Crawlers, driving an autocross, and a chance to drive an open-wheel Dodge racers sponsored by Skip Barber Racing School. We also were able to spend time with old friends such as Pete Chapouris, Tony Thacker, George Barris and various vendors. We did have some opportunity, also, to go cruising, dinners, and walking the show with some of our special Prowler friends who came in for the show. All in all, it was a great week and I hope you enjoy the pictures!|
