If you walk around at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, you’ll find all kinds of bitchin rides in booths and outside the show’s halls. What you might not realize is that there are quite a few of them that are at least partially unfinished. If you stick around long enough to see the cars coming out of the show you’ll find many of them are rolled out and don’t actually run. That’s because some of them didn’t actually make it through the SEMA Thrash. Builders like Chip Foose cannot have a car show up unfinished, so it is all hands on deck to put the finishing touches on their cars before they are loaded into the transporter and shipped off to Vegas.
Chip Foose posted up this video the day before yesterday to show just what it is like getting their E-Type Jaguar and Camaro ready for SEMA with just 5 days left before the show starts. Check it out, it will definitely be relatable to any of you that have built a car before and had to thrash to get it ready for a particular deadline. I’ve personally done the SEMA thrash on several occasions, and also built a lot of cars in a hurry before heading to a race or event, so I can definitely relate.
