Anyone going to SEMA 2017?

Hi Guys,

Well I've finally stashed enough cookies away to be able to head off to SEMA this year. It's been 10 years since I last went and I am really looking forward to it.

I've heard this year will be the last in the current location. The major hall is due for renovation and won't be available next. Don't know if that's true - just rumour I've heard.

Anyway, anybody on this forum going this year????

No secret Darren. You gotta be employed in something automotive related. I work for Holden

Yeah we went a couple of years ago to Pleasanton and was amazed at how many cars they get to the show and also the swap meet is huge.
To bad they have a weight restriction for luggage on planes

Yeah that Ring Brothers 'Defiant' Javelin is the biggest stand out in my opinion. Baller!

Plenty of 69 Camaros and things like the Ring Brothers Charger 'Defector' that appears near stock at first glance (though of couse is far from it), perhaps is why less limelight?

Mind you, the 1600hp 300MPH Venom F5 would be fun to give a punt around...
