Hot Wheels at SEMA

As our cab neared the show, we started to notice that there were a lot of people standing outside... not just a bunch of people, but a lot of people. Not a good sign.

As you can see from the picture on the right, there were a few people at the show. This picture shows the people in line for their attendee passes, which were required for entry into the show. You see, SEMA and AAPEX are not open to the general public - you have to be involved in the automotive business in some capacity. I believe, however, that there were a lot of people there who weren’t really in the automotive business - all that’s required for entry is a business card that indicates you’re in an automotive related business and $50 (or $10 if you register early).

After standing in line for over an hour to receive our entry passes, lanyards and ID cards, we were ready to hit the show. While we were standing in line, I noticed several television cameras, television lighting rigs and a few famous TV personalities. This was going to be a great show!

There were two cars that were really popular for use as booth cars at the show - the MINI Cooper and the Hummer H2. We saw more variations of the MINI and Hummer than just about anything else.

There were MINIs with drag racing gear, road racing gear, big wheels, small wheels, graphics, stereos - you name it, they had it. The Hummers were usually outfitted with some impressive dubs - 22”, 24” and 26” wheels were commonplace at the show.

We took all of Tuesday to get a “lay of the land” - we tried to speedwalk the entire SEMA show to get an understanding of where everyone was located, and to formulate a plan of attack for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
