Highlights from SEMA Show 2006.

By Brian Vermette, RaceDriven.com.

Wow, for a lot of car enthusiants and beyond, this week marks one of the biggest shows for the aftermarket, the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. I am always amazed with just what some of these manufacturers, designers, and builders can come up with in how to transform a stock vehicle or plain sheet metal into something of a work of art. Some of the vehicles photos that I saw on alot of blogs and websites that covered this huge event were out there and for the most part I was impressed.

The two of these vehicles that most impressed me was Chip Foose's Hemisfear, a hotrod that Chip has been working on for years and what a combination of colors - black and what looks to be gray/carbin fiber look and the other, oldly enough, its the Edelbrock 1932 Ford Roadster, simply put, the TV Show "RIDES" had an episode dedicated to the building and unveiling of this read and if you look really close on the photo, under the hood is an image of the american flag and I believe it says the words "Made in America".
