SEMA: Day 3

Posted on 03 November 2011 by Adam Kaslikowski

Today was a  move away from covering the trucks (I’m not a huge fan) to observing some honest to god sports cars. Yes, there were horrific chrome R8s and body-kitted Ferraris, but there was also breathtaking classic 1973 Celica and a bumper crop of BMW 1Ms. Local Motors still proves to be the friendliest booth at the entire show, and there product is beyond cool. Driving scene was also granted an exclusive interview with Brandmotion to explain the finer points of their Urban Loft Fiat 500 concept. Expect a full write-up next week.

The low point of the day occurred when a buttoned-up 40 yr old parts buyer told a silicon and botox enhanced 20 year old booth model that she looked “stunning.” In a Hannibal Lecter lisp. All these family men are letting their crew-cutted hair down and asking for pictures with the models, no cars in the frame or any pretense other than “I would totally do you if you weren’t repulsed by me.” All the models were extremely generous and feigned excitement for the chance to be hugged by sweaty mid-westerners old enough to be their fathers.

One day left for SEMA, and I’m going to be shooting more sports car and exotics. My life is hard, but someone has to take all these pictures for you fans. Till tomorrow, entertain yourself with the gallery after the jump.
