    SEMA if anyone doesnt know is the Specialy Equipment Market Association (http://www.sema.org/main/semaorghome.aspx?ID=/content/SEMAorg/HomePage)

    This year, the SEMA convention will be held in Vegas Nov 2 (Tuesday) to Nov 5 (Friday).

    What's featured in SEMA?

    Performance products for street and race applications to appearance accessories for late-model automobiles. Cosmetic accessories and handling equipment for the booming sport compact market, along with parts and accessories for muscle cars, classics, street rods and light trucks


    Anyways, I was thinking about taking a trip out there this year. Possibly leaving on Friday October 29th and returning on November 2nd (to catch the first day of SEMA only).

    Anyone else intereted in going?

    I love those people. They watch my shows and buy stuff from the people that advertise against them! Hell, I could spend $100k on a custom "Silvia" and it'd be a LEGITIMATE business expense! :D

    Sema is great fun, I've done it before, the strip, the rental car abuse, we actually managed to break a brand new volvo that had only 55 miles on it. I can get the credentials to get in if you want. I think I might concider going. It would be a good time.

    Is there anything else in LV? :)

    Why not look into a trip to the Shelby factory out there?
    I also understand you can Kart race at the LV speedway.

    I just booked my ticket. 11/2 to 11/5. Still looking for a hotel... If Hubert's going, I'm staying at the Aladdin with him. If not, I'll probably go to the Venetian.

    Ideally, though, I'd stay at the LV Hilton. No, not because it's a good hotel but because it's close to SEMA and getting a ride around town during that show is not the easiest thing in the world to do...

    Emil if you are attending the SEMA show only you might as well just stay at the hilton. it will take you forever to get around town.

    I won't be going THERE. Because I'll be HERE. :)

    BTW, if anyone can't get in the Hilton, other hotels an easy walk to the LVCC are Riviera, Stardust, and Circus. None are first class, though.

    Also, if any more distant hotels try to tell you that you can get there by the new monorail, be advised that it has been shut down due to mechanical problems.
