We didn’t have a booth setup at the 2013 SEMA Show, but our neighbors at Coker Tire sent us some cool pictures to post here. Our guys in the Honest Charley Garage had a lot of work to do to help prepare Coker for its big SEMA event, so we were proud to see our craftsmanship on display to more than 100,000 car guys. Take a look at some of the cool stuff from SEMA, and look forward to another new blog regarding the new Lencki Six engine that we helped recreate!
Coker used our shop truck in their booth to display one of its tire molds. These molds have always been somewhat mysterious, but Coker put it on display so everyone could see how its tires are made.
Look for more on this incredible Lencki Six engine recreation in a future post!
This ’55 Chevy gasser got a lot of attention because it’s based on a popular model kit from back in the day. Very cool!
The 2013 Ridler Award winner was on display in the Ford booth. We love that they took a ’40 Ford to extremes without losing the classic shape and style.
Speaking of extreme, check out this slammed, aluminum-bodied dually hot rod, built by our buddies at Cutworm Specialties. Their shop just across the state line in North Carolina, and they build some killer, hand-crafted hot rods!
Lookie there! The Street Rodder Road Tour car is making its rounds, and we spotted it at the Ford Racing booth outside.
This year’s America’s Most Beautiful Roadster certainly lives up to its title. We love track-inspired hot rods, and this one is downright perfect!
Another hot rod that we’d classify as downright perfect is George Poteet’s hugger orange ’34 Ford three-window coupe. This car won the Goodguys Hot Rod of the Year award and it is VERY deserving!
With retro “show rod” styling, this hot rod pickup has cool written all over it. From the crazy grille to the ’57 Chevy hood spears in the roof, this hot rod is detailed to the max.
Ok, so this thing looks pretty rough, but it’s one of the coolest sleepers of all time. Known simply as the “Farm Truck”, this long wheelbase C10 is powered by a nitrous-fed big block Chevy.
We love chopped, channeled and slammed customs, and this early ’50s Chevy is without a doubt one of the coolest customs we’ve seen.
Salt flat racing has created some of the craziest and coolest race cars of all time. This swoopy, long nose Studebaker makes us wish we lived closer to Bonneville!
