[Gallery] SEMA 2023 Day One Round Up

Click Here to Begin Slideshow Day One of SEMA 2023 is in the books and it was all about the reveals -- from TJ Hunt's stunning BMW M4 GT3 in the Meguiar's booth (which accidentally stole the thunder away from Toyota's press conference) to several Ring Brother's builds to Shawn Smith and Lopez Performance's "Illicit" 1969 Chevrolet Camaro collaboration with Aeromotive to the many other amazing customs unveiled for the enthusiastic (and bustling) SEMA audience. Numbers feel normal again, post-pandemic -- 2,200 exhibitors and approximately 160,000 attendees according to SEMA. “The incredible support for this year’s SEMA Show demonstrates that our industry is strong and thriving,” said SEMA President and CEO Mike Spagnola. “Our members, many of whom are small businesses, are true drivers of growth and prosperity in the United States.” Industry business and accolades continued with the Product of the Year awards, Manufacturer and Channel Partner of the Year (Dee Zee and Summit respectively), all announced at the SEMA Breakfast which typically opens the show. This year's keynote speakers were Ant Anstead and driver Tanner Faust talking about Radford's Pikes Peak International Hill Climb award winning vehicle, also on display in the Central Hall. The show and SEMA itself has made a point of embracing emerging technologies and diversifying its members and input. Central Hall is hosting both the African American Automotive Association in the former General Motors space complete with iconic race vehicles and a stage, as well as the FutureTech Studio, "an expansive exhibit dedicated to renewable fuels, hybrid technology, sponsor vehicles, engaging discussions and education to keep members on the cutting edge." Ongoing throughout the week will be the Battle of the Builders competition. The initial Top 40 vehicles were announced on Tuesday, October 31 (hat tip to Rodger Lee and Danny Shaffer's 1967 Mustang which is gracing the RacingJunk booth) and will be narrowed down to 12 by Wednesday, November 1. In the meantime, enjoy a survey of some of the best of the silver lot in the following gallery! Photos by Chadly Johnson Click Here to Begin Slideshow
