Check out this, uhh, drag truck, I think.

SEMA is beautiful and ugly and fascinating and cheesy and wonderful and terrible and endless and endless and endless. Many different kinds of auto aftermarket everything fill the halls. From air compressors to detailing products, wheels to roof racks, tool sets to alignment racks, radio-controlled trucks to 12-foot-wide and -tall monster trucks, it’s all here. 
I walked past a big Fiat Chrysler display of drag cars and Mopar goodies…and then Cherng Yi Hsing’s display for chrome-plated plastics. I saw a stand for GoPro cameras and then another for a half-million-dollar custom, tank-tracked off-roader. If you’re a car nerd of any kind, something here will almost certainly tickle your fancy. And something else will make you angry at the world.
After clocking over 26,000 steps in less than eight hours, I slumped in a chair and collected a few photographs. Check out the gallery below to see what I saw and get but a glimpse of the glory that is SEMA.

This 1949 Dodge Power Wagon is modified by Legacy Classic Trucks and hoisted by Earth Lift. Fun fact: This particular Dodge gets power from a Chevrolet LS3 engine.

This BadAss tool set ranks among the most straightforward displays at SEMA — also the most common.

This is called the Elevated Creeper. It holds 350 pounds and goes as high as 6 feet 2 inches. As you’ll see in the next photo, it also folds flat. The point is to work on higher parts of the car without stressing your body.

I think it should come with a pillow.

AntiGravity Batteries took the performance car route with its display, showing off sport cars and sport bikes along with lithium-ion batteries with a claimed weight savings of 35 pounds compared to a lead-acid battery.

You’re looking at a 2018 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Crew Cab Short Box Custom Pure Michigan Adventure Concept. It’s a display for Gentex as it a rearview mirror that doubles as a backup camera, as well as a light bar and a DVR. Nothing says serious adventurer like an installed DVR!

Cherng Yi Hsing chrome-plates plastic. It looks like this.

If you think your car cover is much too bland, Cover King color matches its covers to OEM paint. This is great to show what’s underneath the cover, or at least what you wish was underneath the cover.

Yukon Gear & Axle put this gnarly Jeep Gladiator on display to show off its gears and clutches

Traxxas builds radio-controlled cars and trucks. The display proved more popular than I would have guessed, especially with folks who are old enough to drive the real thing. But hey, the company built a small off-road course for people to try. Vehicles rolled and fell off hills and suffered multiple collisions, folks just picked them up and carried on. Cost-effective!

Close to Autoweek’s heart, IMSA had a display showing off a couple cars, including this WeatherTech sponsored Ferrari 488 GTD race car.

Hyundai’s booth had a pleasantly surprisingly strong reference to motorsport, including this Michelin Pilot Challenge Veloster N TCR race car.

You’re looking at a 2020 Ford F-250 “Baja Forged” truck modified by LGE-CTS motorsports. This army green truck got a truckload added parts (get it? Truckload? Cause it’s a truck?!?). The suspension is raised and modified, the tires are knobby and all-terrain. You can sleep on the rooftop tent, carry equipment in the utility box track bed and wench things to safety or out of the way.

Hawk Performance brake pads went the classy route with this beautiful Porsche 356 on display.

This is not a race car, but the 2020 Toyota GR (Gazoo Racing) Supra Racing Concept. It’s replete with race car stuff and meant to show what a Supra race car would look like. Toyota recently revealed the Supra GT4 actual race car and the two look awfully similar.

Taking a close look at an NHRA Funny Car forces you to respect how much power and violent forces these drivers deal with. Fox interviewed folks from the sport throughout the day.
