[Non-Tech] SEMA Event 2016 Recap

I am a car guy. The picture above is my 2016 Subaru BRZ that I purchased this year and began modifying the same day I brought it home from the dealership. As a car guy, attending the annual SEMA conference in Las Vegas has been a bucket-list item I have been wanting to cross off for a number of years. 2016 brought the opportunity to attend — attendance is not open to the general public — because a friend (Russ Taylor) managed to have his 2015 Z28 Camaro racecar entered as a Feature Car in the event!

Walking around 7 miles a day at the Las Vegas Convention center for three straight days last week, I saw hundreds of amazing cars and trucks. From classic street rods, hot rods my Dad used to build, 1970s muscle cars to modern muscle cars and Japanese import tuners. I took more than 100 photos and filled my Instagram account that follows my car passion. Here are the top 10 cars I thought were at the show.
