2016 SEMA the Good, Bad, and Brilliant #TENSEMA2016

The Good, Bad, and Brilliant: SEMA 2016 brings out the fantastic and freakish

View Full Gallery


What can you say? It’s the spectacle of all car shows that takes place on the largest, most transparent stage the aftermarket automotive world has to offer. It’s the place you’ll see some of the coolest hot rods and muscle cars on the planet wrapped in the latest doodads and widgets available – some for aesthetics and some for performance. Mile-deep, glass-like paintjobs are the norm as car builders take pride in showing off their fabrication and design skills by dialing in the most intricate details to make their car a step or ten above the rest. And by “the rest,” we are talking thousands of cars on display inside the halls and all around the massive Las Vegas Convention Center.

So, with builders going the extra mile in hopes of having their car get some form of notoriety by the thousands of industry insiders, the majority of rides on hand are done with functionality and style that many would consider to be brilliant. Yet, there are those who tend to go a bit over the edge and miss the mark. Although we all have different taste when it comes building and admiring hot rods, to some of us, less is more, while to others more is… well, more.

So, we’ve put together this all-encompassing gallery of Chevys (also a few non-Chevys just because we couldn't resist) from the 2016 SEMA show to give you the full effect of what the greatest aftermarket auto show on earth has to offer.

There’s a good probability you’d love to have most of the cars here in your garage, with a few you’d prefer to admire from afar.

Regardless of your taste, keep in mind hours and hours of bodywork, fabrication, and preparation went into making these rides unique in their own way, and we here at Chevy High Performance realize that tons of blood, sweat, money, and quite a few busted knuckles were sacrificed to get these cars in shape for the 2016 SEMA Show.
