SMEA 2014 is over, an amazing show has come to a close. 4 days of aftermarket automotive madness in all its glory. Here's what we saw as the major themes...
From the Blue Chrome Acura NSX masterpiece in the Nitto Tires booth to the RCF in the Lexus booth, TraKyoto / Miura-San has made his presence well known outside of the FR-S scene. These things do multiply like bunnies!
From the Mustang RTR to the multiple amazing hot rod builds in the central hall, the domestic aftermarket (some say the originators of the aftermarket) is still going strong.
Seeing major car manufacturers embrace the aftermarket for the first time (BMW and Mercedes) shows that they believe its here to stay...a good thing for everyone. Even players like Chevy and Ford were pushing their OEM aftermarket accessories.
No car is safe from us, regardless of price, make or model - we can customize EVERYTHING.
We saw a few tuners bring out DTM, GT3 and full open wheel racecars this go around. More and more each year!
What will 2015 bring? 30" wheels? Full F1 Cars? Who knows, but check back in a year and we'll have the coverage!
