Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the annual SEMA Show didn’t happen this year. No 150,000 people overflowing the Las Vegas Convention Center and showrooms at neighboring hotels. No tire marks in the parking lot from all those OEM thrill rides. No miles upon miles of booths to walk past until your feet and legs are begging for mercy. No display after display of customized vehicles.
Instead, there was an online event called SEMA360, with more than 2,000 new automotive products introduced and more than 300 vehicles to see as you clicked and clicked, letting your fingers do the walking, as the telephone directory (remember those paper-and-ink dinosaurs of a different age?) once proclaimed.
So, too, our coverage of the show was different, pretty much delayed until now, when we’ve had a change to click through pages after pages of thumbnail-sized SEMA360 photographs to select and present the gallery below.
By the way, this gallery features cars, hot rods and rat rods. Once our carpel tunnel heals, we might be back with another gallery showcasing SEMA360 trucks and 4x4s.
Feet rejoicing, fingers complaining, eyes bloodshot, we present…
