SEMA 2000, Photo by Randy Burleson Ford Trucks at SEMA
Each November, Vegas fills to overflowing with the SEMA Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo. Take Vegas' bright lights, wild reputation, and 24x7 lifestyle, then mix in thousands and thousands of vendors, journalists, and buyers... the resulting trade show is massive, almost impossible to see in only four days. 4x4Wire toured the show, snapping pictures of the latest Ford products and the hoopla that surrounded them.
