One thing you’ll always find at SEMA is that you’ll come away with plenty of personal inspiration for cars you’d love to own, and it’s no different for me and Jules. In all the years we’ve been coming, we’ve never agreed on our favourite motors, but that’s a good thing. The world would be far more boring if we all did that, right? Anyway, just in case you were wondering, here’s what grabbed our attention…
Jules: Lexus LC 500 & Mazda RX-7 FC
I’ve had a soft spot for the FC series of the Mazda RX-7 ever since my Dad bought one when I was about eight-years-old. So, when I saw this Pandem-kitted beast on the Toyo stand I instantly fell in love. Look out for a full feature on this RX soon. The other car that I couldn’t stop looking at was this bagged Lexus LC 500, it was absolutely stunning and I want it. Unfortunately I haven’t got £7.50 in my bank (especially after Vegas), let alone £75,000 to buy one!
Midge: Ford Starliner & Audi R8
“There’s not a car here I wouldn’t want to own to be honest, but if I have to pick one to bring home, and obviously by that I mean two, it’d be Bev’s Ford Starliner. Expertly restored by Walton Customs, and packing a Coyote crate V8, it has to be one of the most immaculate Yanks I’ve ever seen. I’d also like the camo-carbon R8 V10 on the X Force Stand please, purely for the crazy spoiler-mounted roof box. Obviously, I’d look a bit of a dick tooling around Dartford in that one, but I’d never get all my tools and stuff in a normal R8 would I? In fact, I might even consider chopping in my Navara for one of those. I wonder if they sell those boxes in Halfords?”
