SEMA 2016: Las Vegas, NV

The largest automotive trade show through the eyes of a noob and a veteran, respectively. Adam Gordon (AG): As a first-timer at SEMA, the Las Vegas Convention Center is truly a sensory overload. It can be overwhelming at times when you don't know what to look at, or which hall to explore next. With luck, I was able to see the entire show, only finishing my tour of duty in the final hours of the last day. Picking favorites from the plethora of builds was a task in itself.

Import Face-Off 2011: Crofton, MD

Photos by Cliff Wallace In the FWD class, Chris “The Magician” Miller struggled to even qualify as he was forced to back out during the first round due to a leak in the burnout box. For his second, nail-biting attempt, Chris almost hit the wall as his Orange-camo Civic jerked hard left and crossed the center line, which made that pass ineligible as a qualifier. Before his third and final attempt at qualifying, Chris was expected to only peddle across the line to take the low risk number 8 qualifying position. Instead of taking an easy pass, The Magician went…
