You might recognize Kenny Wayne Shepherd's '72 Charger from an episode of Hot Rod television that aired last year. Here it is all finished, showing off in the Mopar Performance booth at SEMA.
The Specialty Equipment Market Association, more commonly known to automotive enthusiasts as SEMA, is an organization that brings the manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers of the performance aftermarket community together. Their annual trade-only convention is held annually at the Las Vegas Convention Center in early November, and member manufacturers show their newest and greatest parts to the eager members of the media, as well as potential buyers.
As a way for these manufacturers to display their products at work, it isn't uncommon for them to place a couple of choice vehicles in their booth. Being the biggest aftermarket parts convention in the country, there is pressure to show the best of the best. Our job here is to pick from those, the most impressive, unique, and interesting cars. It's a difficult task, and a lot of nice cars were omitted due to space, but we're giving it our best shot here.
