nce a year, the big players of the automotive aftermarket congregate in the Las Vegas Convention Center for the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) trade show. Companies bring out high-end project vehicles and new products. This year's SEMA show did not disappoint, with over 1,500 new products on display smack dab in the middle of Sin City.
Good, bad, or indifferent, the SEMA show is not open to the general public, but we were there in full force. We walked what seemed like miles of booths, scouring each one looking for the best products that will help you turn your Bow Tie into a super Chevy. With so many products to inspect, we were hard-pressed to just pick a few, so we decided to give you a nice round number of 101 to whet your gearhead whistle. The information is quick and dirty, but should be enough to let you decide if you want to investigate further by contacting the company directly. So grab a drink, sit back in your favorite chair, and enjoy Super Chevy's Top 101.
