SEMA Show 2015

For the past 3 years I’ve attended the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show in Las Vegas. I go to find new products for my automotive business (McDermott Automotive), and to keep up with with innovation in the automotive world.

It’s an automotive industry trade show, manufacturers and service shops bring over-the-top cars to attract attention and establish credibility. I’ve never seen so many $million cars in one place.
Ironically, the SEMA Show isn’t a car show, but it’s the best car show in the world.

My new project

It needs a little work, yes. But it will be so cool when it’s finished! I’m thinking that I’ll need an extra thick coat of paint on those floorboards, or maybe it would be better as a Flintstones car, where you can put your feet on the street to stop and go!

2009 CMBC Car Show

On Saturday Aug 8 CMBC hosted our 2nd annual car show. Our goals were to have a great show, provide an opportunity to connect and reach out to the community, and collect food donations for the CMBC food pantry. The show exceeded my expectations. We had over 70 cars, and a good mix of church member cars and cars from outside the church body. We met a lot of great people from the community. We collected several shopping carts full of donated food. We had great music led by Larry Haggin and his band, and a great BBQ lunch that was organized and cooked by Jay and his volunteers. The weather forecast was for rain on Saturday, but God had a better plan (he always does). The weather was absolutely perfect, warm and bright, with filtered sunlight behind the clouds. Kudos to the car show committee (Ron C, Tom, Ian, and Dave Mc) for lots of great planning. Thanks also to several others who volunteered their time to ensuring a successful event (Jay, Larry, Curt, Mazie, Dave M, Miles, Jerry, Tim, Liz, Melissa, Kari, Ted, Robin, Ron, Chuck, Greg, others I missed?)

Following are my pictures from the event. There are 2 albums. One for the casual viewer, who wants to get a quick flavor for the event. The other is for the serious car lover, many more pictures of the cars.
