It seems like a lot of you guys enjoyed my first coverage on this event, so I'm hoping this one will be as good as the first. I'm now finally back from Vegas, so I'll try my best to be more descriptive than just dumping in photos. I usually say "there are tons of photos to share" after I come back from an event, but for SEMA, it's not just photos but cars in general I need to share because every year at SEMA, you'll come across cars you've never seen before. If it was the same car as last year, then it probably went through a makeover with new paint or aftermarket products. There is a reason why so many people working in the automotive industry go to this event because of business purposes or to get new ideas. The overall layout was pretty similar to last year's event, so I didn't have a difficult time navigating myself to certain areas. In my part 2 coverage, I'll be covering the Central Hall where all the Performance related companies displayed their products and cars. Get ready because this one will be long and fun.
The first booth I came across was H&R's. This section was at the way back..wait..I can't say the back because Central Hall is just way too massive, I can't actually tell where is where. Anyways, these BMWs were displayed under their booth. The 1M on Super BBS RSs in 19s was pretty interesting.
Subaru had some nicely modified cars and products on display.
This hatchback had the new Rays, which will be showed later on in Mackin Industries booth.
We all know Subarus are famous for Rallying.
Turbo sizes from BorgWarner.
M3 under aFe's booth.
Evo and Fiat under a booth called Zeitronix.
Rotora had an awesome display setup. I love White, so anything in White is awesome (^_^)v
Veilside kit and Advan wheels on this GT-R R35 under Rotora's booth.
Keeping it simple, yet aggressive! Loved this Evo 10.
Injen had some cars outside and inside on display. This Ralliart Sportback on the new Rotiforms looked pretty unique. Not really my taste, but it sure was different.
Ouuu~ I had no idea what this car was, so I did my Night Import research and found out it was a car from the Philippines. What's really unique about it, is its 250HP coming out from a hybrid engine.
I forgot what booth this tC was under, but it was looking pretty darn good! I'm not a fan of 2011 Scion tC models because of its tacky design, but this one killed it in a good way.
I think this guy was Neil Tjin...not too sure, but he's definitely known in the automotive industry.
Check this out! This is what I call ART! The design was done by the infamous tattoo artist Mr. Cartoon.
Camaros were taking the Spotlight at last year's SEMA and it seemed like this year was no different.
What would you do if you saw a Cop in a Mustang like this one?
Whoa~~ this one was either a conversion or had a unique body kit.
I forgot to mention the amount of CLEAN classics!
Does it look boring?
In your face!
I was around this booth for awhile checking out their products.
Honda presented a lot of modified CR-Zs last year and for this year, they had a mix of new and old cars.
Crazy fitment on Vossen wheels.
Seems like this car was featured in Super Street.
Bisi from Bisimoto brought out his new race car.
Those Purple Rotiforms are catchy!
I like the bunny...
2012 Civic Coupe with HPD racing components. This one was pretty awesome.
K Sport had a pretty big booth space at the way back.
I don't even remember seeing this Insight last year. Wheels and BBK setup was GORGEOUS!
NRG wasn't as big as last year, but I like how they set up their booth space.
Grandpa loving the muscle car.
Cheverolet's area was entertaining.
Corvettes I would love to have.
I'm not sure of Chevy had a Tuner Challenge like Scion because there were a few Chevy Sonics modified by different companies.
Fatlace's Sonic was full of win.

Domestics at SEMA are worthy paying attention to.
I seriously digged this color big time. It might be the one..hint hint.

I can't explain how much I love RWBs. Nakai san is a genius and seeing his work in person was a different experience. I promised you guys on a Random Nightlight feature on the Green one, so stay tuned. This one is for Fifteen 52 and named Hoonigan.
GoPro's Race Car.
BC Racing Suspension and their displayed cars.
Cusco USA! I heard 'Tarzan' Yamada was here, so if you got a pic with him...I envy you!!!
DSPORT brought out an Evo and R35. I didn't know Vinh was there at the left. Wdup yo!
What a surprise! Who would've expected to see HKS at SEMA?
Wow x2! HKS's S2000.
I remember this booth being very colorful.
One of the cars that got a lot of attention by Medias was this widebody GT-R from High End, painted Matte Orange by DTM Autobody.
Well that's about it from the Central Hall. I think I have more photos to share from this area, so I'll continue on with Part 3 sometime during this week.
