Welcome back guys! Hope everyone enjoyed the AutoFashion's VIP Festival coverage.
Such events like SEMA and AF happen once a year so I try my best to do a full coverage and to make you guys feel as if you were there rather than posting random photos and writing nonsense.
Well today's SEMA coverage part 5 will be our final and I'll be showing you some new places within the center and everyones favorite, photos of models.

The model you see at the top was stationed at Giovanna wheels. No one was paying attention to the cars when the model was posing. You can see the group of gentlemen talking to each other but their eyes looking at something else.

These models were kind enough to take pictures and talk with those who came up to them.

I walked up to random booths where models were present and asked for a picture.

Jenny Chu looking tired.

I was right on time when the Audi R8 was revealed, but my camera was aiming for the model, not the car.

I've seen the SC at various events on Volk TE37's, but not the model.

Searching and searching...

and I find this Gorilla chilling on the couch.

After walking around for a bit with Jeremy, president of Elite-Autosports, we bumped into Vaughn Gittin Jr., this years Formula D Round 7 champion. It was really unexpected because he was trying to leave the place but Jeremy noticed who he was and said "how's it going."
Now if you encounter a famous person who's cocky, he/she will just say 'nothing much' or just leave without saying anything, but Vaughn talked with us for awhile and left but a few seconds later, he turns back and comes to us, saying if we wanted his autograph.

Seriously, Vaughn Jr. was awesome! You don't see a lot of known people having this kind of an attitude. We sort of felt bad because after he gave Jeremy his autograph, people were crowding around him again.

He's not only the champion for Formula D, but also a champion for his actions and attitude toward his fans. Thanks Vaughn for your time and sincerity!

SEMA had this arcade racing machine in the Ford booth, which seemed pretty fun.

IMG_5647

and right next to it was this Ford flipped upside down. I had no idea what kind of an art that was.

After checking out the Central Hall for the second time, we decided to go to the North Hall. I found an exit leading to Lexus's and other cars on the second floor and found the Brembo booth. I was tempted to steal one :)

IMG_5657

I felt the cool breeze, but at the same time, it was HOT because of the sun. This hybrid Lexus was parked in front of the entrance and I remember seeing it at The Pursuit 2.

Seemed pretty funny so I had to take a photo.

Overall, I had a GREAT time at SEMA. This was my first time ever going to such a huge event. Thanks to Alvin and his brother, once again, for letting me stay at their hotel and to Sean from LEDmod.com for lending me his flash and lens. I'll be heading back to Vegas for SEMA in 2011 to bring you guys an even better coverage. Peace!
