I am a huge fan of the Specialty Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas (SEMA). It is a huge convention loaded with all things for motor vehicles. My dad was an auto mechanic for 45 years so I grew up with the sites, smells, and sounds of auto maintenance and customization. I love to be around this world as it allows me to reconnect with something he held dear his entire adult life until he passed away in 2002. Thanks to Lon Damon and Lincoln Electric I got to walk the floor and take photos of incredible booths and incredible cars. I also had a chance to catch up with friends Scott, Red, and Mark at the Lincoln Electric booth. It was fun to do a little pulse on pulse aluminum MIG welding with Mark and Red and chat with my friend and featured guests, Aaron Hagar, his wife Michaela and his crew, from Rat Runners Garage in Tahoe. Zombie apocalypse vehicles and custom vehicle wraps were big this year. Enjoy my tour of SEMA.
