Event Coverage: Sema 2013 – Part. 3

4

Back with more from SEMA 2013 coverage from the Performance Improvements gang. Today’s collection of photos is mostly from the South Hall with a few cars from outside the convention center thrown in for good measure.

Look for at least one more batch of SEMA coverage to come before we move onto the Texas Mile.

  1. Greetings from Sydney, Australia. Thank you again for your great SEMA coverage. It was great to see the Australian made Holden HSV Maloo ute on display, with the wheels that look like Magic Bullet attachments.

    • @Troy good spot. I actually never knew what year that bumper was specifically, I generally separate those trucks by pre 56 and post 58 lol.
