SEMA 2017 Highlights from Day Two in Las Vegas

Day 2 of SEMA 2017 is in the books and we’re already started on day 3! We started the day off with the annual SEMA Prayer Breakfast, which is organized and sponsored by Coker Group President and SEMA Chairman, Wade Kawasaki. After that, we were on our feet to see some of the finest automobiles, parts and people from the aftermarket industry. We spotted a bunch of great cars, rolling on Coker Tire products, including a couple of Chip Foose 1932 Fords, and many more classic cars, hot rods and muscle cars. Take a look at our favorites, and look forward to more highlights as the week rolls on.

SEMA 2017 features a bunch of high end hot rods. George Poteet’s 1932 Ford Tudor is on display in the Ford booth and it’s had a crowd around it all week. The Johnson’s Hot Rod Shop-built Deuce rolls on Firestone Dirt Track tires.

You’re just gonna have to trust us when we say that this Rick Dore creation rolls on Coker Tire products!

SEMA 2017
Heavily chopped, channeled and modified, this Model A coupe features a ’32 Ford windshield and grille, while horsepower comes from an supercharged, Ardun-headed Flathead. Tall and skinny Firestones fit the bill.

Classic Corvettes are notorious for two-tone paint jobs and wide whitewalls, but this one has neither of those traits. This ’57 Corvette is plain and simple, rolling on blackwall bias ply tires (from Coker Tire of course) and plain steel wheels with dog dish caps. We love the subdued look!

Another classic Chevy is this 1967 Camaro convertible. It doesn’t appear to be a highly optioned car, aside from the fancy factory hubcaps and V8 engine. Gotta love those skinny bias ply whitewall tires! SEMA 2017 is packed with awesome custom builds, as well as restored classics like this one.

Samuel Hard built this killer Shoebox Ford, which will be sold for charity. The chopped top and custom treatment offer a nice foundation for a set of steel wheels and wide whitewall tires.

Chip Foose is known for his custom car builds and his artwork. Check out this Deuce roadster that he named “P32”, thanks to a heavy aircraft influence. This car has been around the block a few times, but it’s one of our favorites!
