For performance-industry insiders, they constitute a rite of fall as regular as the turning of the leaves and the towering compulsion to strangle Dick Vitale. The Specialty Equipment Market Association and Performance Racing Industry shows-or simply "SEMA" and "PRI," as they're known in the business-have for decades served as the launching pad for the hottest new products from the automotive aftermarket. There are diversions, to be sure-gigawatt car-audio systems, neon valve-stem caps, and implausibly proportioned spokesmodels at the all-encompassing SEMA show; gigabuck laser milling machines, 2,500-horse tractor-pull engines, and implausibly proportioned spokesmodels at the race-oriented PRI confab-but for those willing to choke down overpriced convention-hall food and suffer through the plantar misery brought on by several days of nonstop perambulating, there are untold treasures waiting to be discovered.

Here, in no particular order, are some of our most promising finds for 2006.
