Ford brings no fewer than three Fiestas and seven Focus models to next weeks SEMA show in Las Vegas
SEMA you later
The annual Specialty Equipment Market Association show has to be one of the few auto shows where, unless you’re an exhibitor, buyer, manufacturer or member of the media, you have to experience it vicariously through articles, photos and videos. This is due to the fact that, like the Consumer Electronics Show, it’s really a trade show and, therefore, the general public is not allowed inside the exhibit halls.
Despite this failing, it has become a show in which auto manufacturers find themselves compelled to attend. And attend they do, with most exhibiting a number of over-the-top concepts that are constructed in collaboration with aftermarket parts manufacturing partners.
