Giant Preview Of Mopars From SEMA Set-Up Day! #TENSEMA17

  Giant Preview Of Mopars From SEMA Set-Up Day! #TENSEMA17 The SEMA Show in Las Vegas is the perfect intersection of the newest, coolest performance parts and the best of the car-building world. The only down side to SEMA is that this trade show is not open to the public. Only displaying manufacturers, registered buyers, and members of the media are allowed in. To your benefit, Mopar Muscle is not only a member of the media, we are also a displaying vendor, which gives us unfettered access to the show floor even before the hordes of "regular" media are allowed in.

SEMA was a blur this year—but that's really no different than any other year. The crowds were as horrendous as ever in the Las Vegas Convention Center, but the quality of cars made it all worth it. It wasn't just "cars" that got us excited, it was the Corvettes and boy were there a lot of them! The variety was astounding. We saw everything from a super-rare 1957 Airbox to a chromatic C7 Stingray and everything in between.

Killer Classic 4x4 Builds of SEMA 2017 - # tensema 17 . Some are showy like a Vegas showgirl and some are, well, not. One thing they all have in common is that they’re part of The SEMA Class of 2017 .

On day two we came across the Goodguys Fox-body Pace Car, a New Edge race car, and of course, a few of the brand new 2018 Mustangs that have taken Ford’s inside booth by storm . Tanabe’s Revel VLS Gauges from SEMA 2017 # TENSEMA 17 .

Indoors we found tons of high-end builds including C1 through C3 Vettes with LS and LT engine swaps, lots of custom body modifications and tech galore. Outside we found the usual lineup of Optima cars where just almost half of the competition consisted of our favorite two-door American sports car. These Corvettes were all decked out with big sticky tires, a healthy dose of carbon fiber and lots of aerodynamic improvements. But don't just take our word for it, go check out our comprehensive photo gallery and take in all the Corvette goodness we found at SEMA 2017. Oh, and take note, because if we get our way there's a good chance you'll see a few of these beauties on the pages of Vette magazine in the months to come. Enjoy!

Back For The Attack! More Monster Mopars From SEMA 2017! #TENSEMA17 .
More amazing Mopar project cars from the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas! The dust from the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas has settled, and it's starting to sink in just how enormous a year it has been for Mopar builders and parts manufacturers. In case you haven't heard, SEMA is the trade organization that brings aftermarket parts manufacturers together with distributors and retailers, and their annual trade show is the venue where these two monumental forces merge to drive our favorite industry into the following year.
