Most of you know Ramsey asked me to display the Power Wagon in their booth this year. It was quite an honor, and I'm very happy to have been able to make the trip. The show itself is insanely huge. The amount of vehicles on display is somewhat overwhelming and the miles you walk every day really add up by the end of the week. And although there is a lot of stupid stuff there, it really is worth checking out if you have the chance.

Driving to the show Monday morning. The weather was awesome the first 3 days, but cooled down and actually rained on Thursday.
Image

I did a lot of looking around on Monday while the show was still closed, but had to constantly dodge huge shipping crates, forklifts, manlifts, and the occasional super car. Ford had the new GT on display.
Image

It wouldn't be SEMA without ridiculous excess.
Image

Image

Stanceworks unveiled the new version of RustySlammington in the H&R booth. I loved the mix or Rat and high tech. It was very cool in person with clean fab work.
Image

Image

Because air jacks.
Image

Image

Image

Image

SEMA had some cool vintage stuff, like this real Petty Superbird. I love the little aero details like the door handle block offs and the bumper fairings.
Image

I only took pictures of these, well, because guns. Pewpewpew.
Image

Image

Clean old school rod with nice fab work.
Image

Image

Bitchin' tractor just because.
Image

Dirt Every Day project.
Image

I have seen the future, and it shall be mine. The new(not yet in production) 42" sticky Trep.

There were a few Ultra4 cars in attendance, including Shannon's new race car.
Image

Image

Rally Fighter chassis.
Image

All of the Ultimate Street Cars were on display. I only took pictures of the 48 hour vette because I love early C3's.
Image

Image

The Roadkill General Mayhem Charger with a Hell Cat swap.
Image

The only other Power Wagon I found, a Legacy crew cab.
Image

Under the hood of the Farm Truck. That's a lot of nitrous solenoids.
Image

A cool Datsun 520 pickup with Miata drivetrain, including the front and rear suspension.
Image

I'd drive this everyday. Seriously.
Image

The Ford GT Le Mans car. Totally baddass, and I'm not a Ford guy.
Image

Image

Image

Fake V-12 in an MGA. It's actually a really well done modified small block Chevy.
Image

Cool '36 (White?) tractor Rat rod. These guys were from Victoria, and we had plenty off time to chat while we waited two hours to get into the parade.
Image

A couple of the Weld 'r Up Rat Rods were parked out front. They're a little gaudy for my taste, but they do nice detail work.
Image

Somebody's LSD inspired Burning Man.... car...thing. It's hard to comprehend the amount of stainless tubing and welds on it. It was actually pretty amazing.
Image

Fully independent front and rear, with a Coyote engine.
Image

I thought this electric canopy lift with tent walls was pretty slick.
Image

Here's the rear suspension on the Poison Spider LJ. The upper links are outside the frame. Not much triangulation, but nice packaging.
Image

The Ramsey booth, with my friends Ryan(Ryno) and Lee. Both helped a ton in the last couple weeks of the Racetractor build.
Image

Stadium Super trucks are awesome.
Image

Of course it wouldn't be a trip to Vegas with out Fremont Street.
Image

Tony Montana
Image

Mr. T
Image

Big Biers.
Image

Big Balls.
Image

If you waited in a long line, you could go in a quick ride in a z06 with a pro driver. For a factory exhaust system, the vettes sound awesome. Click on the pic for video.
Image

Some random trophy truck details I nerded out on.
Image

Image

The IFS of Gordon's mid engine TT.
Image

Very nicely built Pre-runner.
Image

Image

Image

I geeked out on this cool fabricated cam-over latch. I'll build one of these for something, lol.

That cam over latch is sweet. :cool:


What's missing under the jack outboard of the frame, jack handle?
Oh and make sure your crew unlocks the jack pre race.. :roflmao: :eek2:
