1933 Ford “Dry Lakes” three-window coupe, built by Creative Concepts and Halabura Hotrods. It’s powered by a 1953 Ford flathead V8 bored and stroked to 285 cubic inches. The attention to detail is amazing. SEMA Show, Las Vegas, NV.
The Speciality Equipment Market Association (SEMA) in Las Vegas is regarded worldwide as the leading trade show for customization and tuning. At this year’s SEMA show from November 3-6 2015, BMW presents a selection of distinctively sports-oriented performance parts to the trade fair audience. Trade fair visitors will see a BMW M Performance modified BMW M4 Coupé as well as the first BMW M Performance Parts for the new BMW M2 Coupé.
What is more, the new “M Performance” inscription in dynamic technical design is to be seen on selected parts. The inscription reflects the increased flair of BMW M Performance as well as underscoring the functional orientation of all BMW M Performance Parts. Evidence of this is also to be seen in the new, extremely sporty parts and components with which BMW has fitted the demonstration vehicle. The new inscription will initially appear on the BMW M Performance Parts for the models BMW M2 Coupé and BMW M4 Coupé, but in future it will be used for the entire BMW M Performance product portfolio.
Chip Foose’s 1956 Ford F-100 pick up. Originally his father’s shop truck it went through a complete transformation in 2005. Every body panel on the truck has been modified and the list of changes made by Chip’s crew is endless. There isn’t a better looking F-100 on the planet. SEMA Show, Las Vegas, NV.
This is the 1961 Impala Bubbletop Wagon of Joe Horisk. GM never built such a car so in order to grasp the full extent of what has been done to this once-a-sedan you need to do yourself a favor and look it up on the internet. It will boggle your mind. SEMA Show, Las Vegas, NV.
One of the most famous funny cars of all time, the 1972 Hot Wheels Plymouth Barracuda “Snake II” of Don Prudhomme. It will be auctioned off by Barrett-Jackson later this year in Scottsdale. SEMA Show, Las Vegas, NV.
In my opinion, the coolest car in Las Vegas this year was the “GoneMad” ‘55 Nomad of Art Boze. Built by Classic Car Studio in Missouri, it sports a Shafiroff Racing Engines 509ci, 625hp big block. Such a great color combination and creative use of satin and gloss paint. It just stops you in your tracks. SEMA Show, Las Vegas, NV.
Sometimes the most interesting cars at a show are the unfinished ones. My initial reaction was that it was a ‘32 Ford, but there are so many modifications that resemble the lines of other years, like a ‘28-’29 Model A for example, that I’m not sure. Amazing workmanship. SEMA Show, Las Vegas, NV.
This is Bruce Levens’ 1951 Ford Coupe. Built by Chad Wick the car is an absolute work of art. The engine is a 1956 Lincoln V8 and it along with other details like one-off gold wheels, custom hood and fender panels, a hand-made dashboard and hand crafted bucket seats covered in Italian leather, all add up to a truly one of a kind custom.
