This special once a year show is the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world, featuring many of the top automobile builders. 100,000 industry leaders from more than 100 countries for unlimited profit opportunities in the automotive, truck and SUV, power sports, and RV markets.
Join us at the show, and view our newest ‘build’, The Royal Purple ’99 Firebird Pro Touring-LSR Car. The car is painted in DuPont ‘Brilliant Black’, and is apply named ‘STEALTH’.
This ‘Build’ is dedicated to the home shop builder, the gals and guys who have a passion for car building, not just buying that special car they have always dreamed of. The innovative ideas applied to this ‘stunning’ example, while not a trailer queen, do in fact show that one can build that dream car on a set budget, using only the best parts available from the aftermarket industry.
This year, we are honored to be the 2013 Covercraft SEMA Show Feature Vehicle, something special to our entire team, and our growing list of ‘official’ sponsors.
We are not new the show, having been the 2011 Royal Purple SEMA Show Feature Vehicle with our current ‘National’ record holding Royal Purple Maxx2Racing ‘Bad Bird’ LSR Race Car.
While the car is still ‘under construction’ one will see many features unique to these late model vehicles. Triangulated 4 link rear suspension, Occupant Compartment Frame (OCF), and RideTech ShockWave suspension front and rear.
Yet to be added to the car are a ‘killer’ set of ultra-high performance brakes, a racing and/or Nascar spec. rear pumpkin with high ratio gears, axles, a spec. racing driveshaft, and racing and highway wheels. Auburn Gear has sponsored the Posi unit for the car, with Continental Tire providing the tires for the show.
You will note that many of the small parts from our ‘official’ sponsors have not shipped yet, and will be installed on the car as they arrive over the next few weeks.
Our schedule includes photo and video sessions throughout the entire time frame we are at the show, Saturday, Nov. 2nd-Friday, Nov. 8th. On Monday, Nov. 4th, many of our sponsors will be at our location for their placement of their decals on the car.
Drop by and say Hi, and ask questions, and tell us about your special home shop car projects. Our ‘brag board’ shown below for this year is special to all, including our media outlets, and Graphics sponsor.
