43 teams are currently competing for a share of a $10 million purse in the Progressive Auto XPrize Foundation, which is encouraging innovators to create production capable vehicles that are both fuel efficient and functional for everyday use. The winner will be announced in May 2010 and competitions will include fuel economy, acceleration, and hill climbing. 12 teams displayed their concepts in all stages of completion at SEMA.
The Chinese companies that are copying many of our industries components and dumping them on our shores were here in force unfortunately.
|I got an STD at SEMA. I think their booth models had tank tops that said STD on them!|
|At least these are not bad tires.|
|A real Chinese name no matter how funny it sounds to Americans is probably better than one of those fake JDM names or something that is supposed to sound cool but doesn’t translate, see STD above.|
|We copy anyones wheels for a price.|
|Due to a sluggish economy, many companies cut down on the amount of live models and spokes people. This is a knock off of Jessica Barton produced by 0BX for your booth, get her on ebay.|
So much for this years SEMA show.
