Default SEMA Show: Las Vegas 2010

Hey all, just thought i'd post up a quick thread to see if anyone from here is going to be at this years SEMA show in Vegas? It would be a great place to perhaps put a few faces to the names on the site.

For those that don't know, SEMA is basically an industry trade show for the automotive world. A lot of concept/customized cars are shown along with high end builds among aisles upon aisles of new products on display from various companies to be released in the coming year. Basically car heaven.

I'll be there all week and will add pics to this thread once I return. In the meantime...anyone else going?

wow, what a ride! another year done and still trying to catch up on sleep. saw some great builds and magazine features up close. lots of great parts coming out as well. amazing the economy is still struggling down there. quite evident by the amount of empty space and actually being able to walk the aisles relatively easily. quite a difference from a few years ago but definitely on the road to recovery.

i've got just over 800 pics and no way i'll be able to post all of them any time soon. however here are a few to get you guys going. enjoy.

Wow!! SEMA has some really great cars on display this year!!
Nice pics!

Also loads of detailing products(polishes, waxes and sealants) are on display there too!!

I had a question, can you buy stuff displayed at SEMA?(mostly small items etc.?)

I've heard that the entry is via a VIP pass only? and acquiring that is super difficult!

hey sohail, sema is actually an industry trade show. there are no sales allowed on the floor. sales as in cash and carry. the show is designed to showcase new products for the the upcoming year and to generate long term sales by setting up accounts or placing orders with companies you already deal with. truth be told it's just one big party with a side of business. haha.

getting tickets you do have to run a bit of a gauntlet. it's for people/companies who are affiliated with the industry and not open to the general public. proof has to be provided of credentials etc. last year even after i received my passes, they asked me to provide proof once i got there. luckily i carried the right stuff.

having said that, if you're ever in vegas at the same time as sema, be sure to go to the convention center and check out the cars and displays on the outside.....there are some phenomenal rides which the general public can access. without hassle. cheers.

perhaps someone can answer, is there a way to post up a mass amount of pics? as mentioned i've got close to 800......the whole posting one at a time is gonna kill me...

does anyone know of a quick program to use that might re size pics quickly without having to use sites like photo bucket or something of that nature?

download Irfan View ( free download) and use it's batch file processing feature to re size all the images at a one go . Make sure to have a backup of original images as process is One way and once you have re sized the images, it will not allow you to revert them back to original.

between excellent images . I see few crazy ideas as well, specially the one with 4 rear wheels

thanks for the info, i'll get that downloaded. greatly appreciated.

i've done tandem axle set up's back in the mid 90's (they were big back then, a bit of a rarity these days). if you have any questions about it just ask. i'll be more than happy to share what i might know. cheers.
