The SEMA Las Vegas automotive aftermarket trade show, which ran from November 5 to 8, showcased an astonishing number of meticulously restored vehicles of all shapes and sizes.
Event organizers estimate that over 230,000 automotive aftermarket specialists and motor vehicle aficionados made the trip to participate in the 2019 edition of SEMA Las Vegas.
Inside the colossal facility housing the event, a selection of meticulously restored and refinished classic and rare vehicles, used by paint suppliers to showcase their latest products, conspicuously vied for the attention of trade show participants.
The area surrounding the exhibition hall served as a vast open-air showroom featuring every vehicle under the sun: from high-performance machines and 100% factory spec rebuilds to motor vehicles transformed beyond the point of recognition, in categories ranging from subcompacts to gigantic monster trucks. It was virtually impossible for visitors to take it all in.
When it comes to vehicle restoration and personalization, SEMA is the place to visit.
The following is a sampling of vehicles that have been reborn and rejuvenated. This is the stuff that future careers are often made of.
