Along with many other events that suffered from the economic side effects of 2009 was our industry's coveted SEMA Show - but it wasn't a total wash. In fact, we saw more quality even if there was less quantity, as we noted several custom builds and quality parts that quickly piqued our interest as we ingested the dry desert air while navigating the floors of the convention center hallways and recovering from the previous night's debaucheries. Plus we got to see the Lexus LF-A up close and personal for the first time, which was nothing short of being totally F'ing bueno.
