As the dust settles from Las Vegas and our heart rates have finally gotten to a normal pace, we present our favorite SEMA builds from 2019.
The “Green Hornet, a 1968 Shelby GT500, was part of the test program Carroll Shelby and his team developed to bring cutting-edge automotive engineering to the late ’60s muscle car. It was designed as a prototype for the California Special trimmed Mustang, one of only two notchback coupes produced by Ford and Shelby, making the car truly one-of-a-kind. Thought to be lost to the crusher, the Green Hornet was discovered to still be in working order. Craig Jackson, CEO of Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction purchased the car and with the help of Pennzoil, meticulously restored the prototype back to factory-spec.
This Porsche Baja 911 was a Battle of the Builders Top 12 Finalist, and with Russell's background of being lead fabricator for Singer design, it's easy to see why.
The original ’68 Bronco originally had a tired old 289 V8 putting out around 100 horsepower, and Dave Pericak wanted to go big, really big. The vehicle now has Ford’s brand new 5.2-Litre supercharged V8 from the Gt500, putting out a massive 760 horsepower and 620 lb-feet of torque. Leno wanted to the Bronco to be a sleeper, so it held on to the period-correct wheels and tires and kept the transmission a manual as opposed to the dual-clutch only option from the GT500 (this required a ton of engineering on Ford’s part).
A monster truck that SILENTLY destroys everything in its path? Yes, please! Our very own Bobby Wayne Stauts caught a glimpse of BigFoot, no not that BigFoot, THIS Bigfoot.
The world-famous Ringbrothers are half custom car builders and half-mad scientists. Their latest creation is a 1969 Mach 1 Mustang known as “UNKL.” The car was unveiled today at SEMA in the Flowmaster (Holley) booth and boy was it a sight to see.
