I’ve been out of this site for a long time, but I’m planning to get back into it again. I went to the Sema show and it was an  increbile fulfillment of a childhood dream. I will be back! Here are some highlights of the show.

Not a vehicle you see modified very often!

Petty colors look good on this Dodge Charger Daytona:

Pro Street with the big and littles wheel and tire combo:Image

Love the look of the big tires and worn, battle scarred exterior hunkered down:Image

There are actually a few converted convertible Satellites i believe that have been given the Dodge Charger Daytona treatment:Image

This thing is so crazy! I’m pretty sure it is a tube frame type vehicle with fiberglass body panels.
