For over 30 years, Meguiar's has been actively building and supporting the car hobby all over the world and the owners of nine of the top show cars in the world have accepted Meguiar's invitation to display their cars at SEMA this year.

The cars will be on display outside the Convention Hall beside the Car Crazy TV Stage.

"The car hobby is a global fraternity that shares an amazing passion for vastly different cars," said Meguiar's President Barry Meguiar. "We attempt to capture this phenomenon with our Car Crazy TV Show on Speed Channel, and are now doing it live at SEMA. Having nine cars for our first year is a great start on what we believe will become a major feature at the SEMA Show."

While the showcase is focused on providing a unique look at the car hobby in these nine countries, the cars on display are certain to attract some serious attention. Some of the treasures that are set to be on display include a 1953 Ford Truck F100 from Costa Rica, a 1939 Lincoln Zephyr Custom from Mexico, a 2000 Toyota Celica from China, and a 1978 XC GS Ford Falcon Hardtop from Australia.

Of special interest to eurotuner readers will be the 1981 Mk1 VW Golf owned by Greg Howell in the UK. With its 130PD turbo-diesel engine, the able VW tuner has updated VW's classic hot hatch.

Before making their way to the SEMA Show, all the cars will stop at the Marconi Automotive Museum in Tustin, CA for private showings to museum visitors during October.
