Well, just got back from my two day trip to Vegas for SEMA a few hours ago. And I gotta say I hope SEMA this year is a sign of things to come because despite a so so economy this was by far the biggest turnout I've seen there ever!

I had a great time. I got to meet Berry Meguiar and shake his hand! I saw Boyd Coddington and his head Mechanic Duane were there. My dad got a picture with Jay Leno! I also saw Mike Pennington walking around as well and said hi.

Ok to some pictures

This definitely wins for most bizarre creation there. This is two mini Coopers put together with a Hot Tub in the middle. If one side broke down you could literally turn it around and drive the other side.

There were so many 05 Mustangs there it would have been impossible to post them all. They were all modified too already. Here’s a picture to show how prevalent they were.

http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/gallery/data/500/193IMG_2348_small.JPG

A little forced induction anyone?

You knew someone had to do it, a turbo per cylinder on this hot rod.

http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/gallery/data/500/193IMG_2355_small.JPG

As seen in magazines.

Icebergs Vette! This thing is sick. It has a perfect custom paint job that looks three feet thick. The attention to detail is incredible. The flames even continue in to the door jambs. This is truly something you guys have to see in person if you ever get the chance to.

http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/gallery/data/500/193IMG_2381_small.JPG

Saleen 05 Mustang already.

http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/gallery/data/500/193IMG_2387_small.JPG

Well, hey had a 26 last year. Now the inevitable 28 has arrived. Think they’ll have a 30 next year?

http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/gallery/data/500/193IMG_2388_small.JPG

And the all new 4 passenger Ferrari.

http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/gallery/data/500/193IMG_2389_small.JPG

This wins for most WOW! This was a Mini.

http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/gallery/data/500/193IMG_2394_small.JPG

This was probably one of the cleanest, nicest classic cars there. This apparently is Joe Rogan’s car. Well just look at it, HEMI!

http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/gallery/data/500/193IMG_2401_small.JPG

New Mercedes.

http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/gallery/data/500/193IMG_2403_small.JPG

I just want one joy ride and I promise I’ll bring it back.

And finally a nice panorama of the outside area.

How long does it take to fully wax that truck???:coolgleam

Mike Phillips

Hours!

I'll ask John next time I see him how long each of the trucks take to fully wax. I know sanding them down and buffing them out took a very very very long time....

I remember them asking for volunteers over on Autopia.org to help buff it :)

Great pix ! This show was so big and soooooo many people here it wasnt even funny, I have a bunck of pictures I will post when I get home. I was able to get a lot of pix in the ford booth before the show started so there arent alot of people crowding the cars.

That SLR belongs to one of my clients, they also have the Mayback that was in the lexani booth. They were supposed to have the carerra GT there also but I dont think the wheels were done yet or ?? I didnt et a chance to talk to them.

Yeah but those trucks sure are pretty. Deffinitely the cleanest best looking Semi's on the road.

I have helped John and Jim numerous times clean the trucks. The larger trucks we can get done in about 6 hours with a team of 7 people and orbitals. The Renegade takes about 5 hours.
Your arms are sore at the end of the day that is for sure

Here are some shots from the ford booth. These are some of the vehicles we worked on and maintained this week.

This is just a directory listing with the pictures I took listed, they are full size and resolution so dial up users beware !

Sorry, I was lazy and didn't have time to resize them all. I will do it later but I wanted to post some pix for all of you that weren't able to attend.

Nice pictures everyone!

And the other night on the speed channel there was an hour and a half long program on the SEMA show. I just barely caught the end of it, but they stopped by the meguiar's booth and showed some of the new products and there was about a 15 second clip of Mike Pennington doing his intent stare in to the paint while wiping down a car.

Not sure if it's going to be on again or not, but if it is it's worth watching to see what your missing if you didn't go.
