2009 marked Pangaea Expeditions’ third trip to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Unlike other years where we have attended to cover the event, this year we also brought our own vehicle, the Bio Bonatti project, a Land Rover Defender 110 which demonstrates the use of green technology in an overland vehicle platform.
As the world’s largest automotive aftermarket show, SEMA brings together a collection of some of the finest craftsmanship from all niches of the industry. At this show, everything seems to be modified, including the infamous SEMA Booth Babes who seemed to sport their own collection of “aftermarket accessories”. Unfortunately, it also brings out some of the most head-scratchingly bizarre examples of aftermarket product “innovation”. Check out some of the highlights (and lowlights) of the show for us.
