SEMA 2013 wrapup

SEMA 2013: Wrapup

by Sarah Forst

SEMA 2013 rode into the Las Vegas Convention Center last week bringing us the hottest trends, products, and vehicles to drooling gearheads. To put it mildly, SEMA is insanity. 4 short days and 4 long nights leave show goers exhausted (bad pun?) but there's no better car wet dream on the planet! Grab your box of tissues and check out our coverage. I’ve photobombed the OEM booths to bring you this year’s factory certified trends.  But first, the Hottest awards go to…. Drum roll or clerical error?  I'm having a serious case of déjà vu!

Hottest Car: Ford Mustang

Hottest Sport Compact: Scion FR-S


MIQ can't afford booth models…

Hottest Truck: Ford F-Series

Hottest 4×4: Jeep Wrangler
