SEMA: Day 1

Posted on 02 November 2011 by Adam Kaslikowski

Ow. My whole body is tired and it feels like my feet are about to leave my ankles over irreconcilable differences. The first day of SEMA is in the bag and here is what I’ve learned:

-Matte finishes are king

-Colored wheels are everywhere

-GM is banking hard on the Sonic being an aftermarket hit

-Lexus is committed to bringing sportiness to their entire lineup

-Car enthusiasts are an ill-groomed and socially awkward bunch

I bounced around a convention center the size of an aircraft carrier all day hitting every press conference between 8 am and 5pm to get the lowdown on the newest trends. I’ll be posting in-depth details of the most important announcements in the coming days, but for now, I’ve got a jacuzzi with my name on it. Peruse through the gallery after the link while I recover…
