OEM Plus (and then some)

Fast Car - - Over There -

One thing we’ve al­ways loved about pub­lic opin­ion across the pond, is that mod­i­fy­ing cars seems to be more ac­cepted than any­where else in the world. In the USA you could al­most call it main­stream, mess­ing about with cars is some­thing that spans the gen­er­a­tions, it re­ally is a way of life for all ages and peo­ple from all walks of life. What this means is that, in­stead of shy­ing away from peo­ple chang­ing up their mo­tors, the OEM man­u­fac­tur­ers ac­tu­ally em­brace it. They kind of have to, es­pe­cially as they all want to be at SEMA to pro­mote their ranges!

Kia, Honda and Toy­ota all laid on top dis­plays this year but, once again, it was Ford that led the way. What these guys do is al­most un­be­liev­able. They not only put to­gether a load of mod­i­fied SEMA Edi­tions them­selves, but they in­vite some of the world’s best builders to get in­volved too. That way you get to see cars like an im­mac­u­late Shelby GT500CR from Clas­sic Re­cre­ations and Speed­kore’s bonkers Shelby GT350R Car­bon Fiber Edi­tion, sat right next to an RS200 rally car and a stun­ning 1960 Star­liner. Epic stuff!
