Every year at SEMA, there seems to be at least one car that overruns the place with all sorts of modified versions at what seems like every other booth. At SEMA 2008, for example, the show was overrun with modified Nissan GT-Rs. So much in fact, that we– it was overwhelming.
This year, SEMA decided to run its own award for “Hottest Car, Truck, and 4×4 SUV” at the show. The winner is decided by how many show up on the floor. “A booth space is a ballot, and the models these exhibitors have selected represent their vote,” said Chris Kersting, SEMA president and CEO. And after taking a brief walk through the show floors, there was no doubt as to the winner this year: The Chevrolet Camaro. Some were heavily modified tunes, some engine swaps, some even made to look like a different car altogether.
Oh, and the winners of the “Hottest Truck” and “Hottest 4×4 SUV” awards? Ford F-Series and Jeep Wrangler, respectively.
Take a look below for some of the Camaros I came across at SEMA 2010. This is by no means all of the Camaros at the show – in fact it’s a very small sample – but they’re the ones that I walked by when my camera was handy and I had time to stop. Sadly, Christine couldn’t make it to the show this year to do her fancy photo work, so what you see below is my feeble attempt at car photography, which turns out to be blurry, unfocused, and usually with part of the car cut off.
