Erica Nagashima - SEMA Model Spotlight

Nov 7, 2014

In a whirlwind of brand new parts, breathtaking car builds, and press conferences, SEMA can be quite overwhelming. After going up on a club (on a Tuesday), a Tacos El Gordo fix, and a pathetic attempt to stay hydrated, normally what comes next is a hangover. The next day you'll find yourself walking through the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center like R from the movie Warm Bodies. But just as in the movie there were plenty of SEMA models to bring us back to life.

Our Teresa Palmer or Julie in this case is beautiful December cover model Erica Nagashima. Conveniently, she was at the Scion booth where we had to regularly go to check on our Scion Tuner Challenge car.

How was your SEMA 2014 experience?
SEMA has been amazing! It has been so great to work with such a great company and have hilarious coworkers like Sadie May and Rebecca Garcia by my side. I love them!

How many years have you been a part of SEMA?
This is my third year doing SEMA.

The Scion shaggin' wagon "Riley Hawk Skate Tour xB." It's so cool! Shag carpets and an 8track player!
