1949 Studebaker 2R Truck – Goodguys Southwest Nationals

This was one of the rides that I ran into when I walked out of the tent @ the Goodguys southwest nationals. There is just so much awesome packed into this ride from the stance to the paint to the beautiful woodwork in the bed.

Here are my shots of the Piccione Performance 2014 C7 Corvette in the HRE Performance Wheels booth at The SEMA Show 2013. It was cool to see the car brand new at the Scottsdale Motorsports Gathering, in progress at their shop and then see it sitting on the stunning HRE wheels @ SEMA. They had a set of Blue P104s on the passenger’s side and a set of Gunmetal S107s with polished lips on the driver’s side, which do you prefer?

Nelson Supercars – 1968 Dodge Charger – SEMA 2013

Another vehicle that was dressed in beautiful bare metal was this monster from Nelson Racing Engines. With over 1500 hours in this hand shaped and widened body, this thing looks amazing. Besides the meticulous metalwork, Nelson dropped in a gnarly powertrain pushing out a mere 2000 HP o.O. The motor is a 9.4 liter Chrysler HEMI that is twin turbocharged, twin intercooled and twin fuel injected. You may say “wha?” about that last part (I know I did), power can be dialed in from 600hp to 2000hp and the computer handles the tune and automatically switches from 90octane to 116octane. There is too much to detail about this beast but it is truly an inspiring ride!

McLaren Philadelphia Brought out this McLaren MP4-12C to SEMA. Love the Volcano Orange color but haven’t ever seen it inside, looks even more amazing than it does in the sun! What is your favorite thing about the MP4-12C?

Slek Designs All Carbon BMW Z4 – SEMA 2013

I dig the Z4 and Slek Designs took it to another level replacing every panel with Carbon Fiber for a savings of 300 lbs. While a body like this may run you about $25k, there is a lot of great custom work here. In addition to the killer CF body, this badboy is blown, breathes through Magnaflow exhaust has an SAE Motorsport Inc. ‘cage, is held up by Ksport USA suspension, rides on RSV wheels and is halted by Ksport USA brakes. I am interested to see what kind of times this thing turns on the track which is coming soon from what I hear.

Forge Motorsport and Garret Turbo got together to build this highly modified VW MkI Golf. With a 2.0 liter 4-banger pushing 300hp/400lb-ft this thing scoots!

While it may not be the original one-off concept that was unveiled at the 1954 Motorama, it is an amazing re-creation. I am not crazy about how the pictures turned out, but the car is just too cool not to share. Knowing that the owners are from AZ, I am hopeful that someday I will get a chance to get better shots of this amazing car!
