SEMA 2016 PAS Elite Tuner DSC 1731

The largest automotive trade show through the eyes of a noob and a veteran, respectively.

Adam Gordon (AG): As a first-timer at SEMA, the Las Vegas Convention Center is truly a sensory overload. It can be overwhelming at times when you don't know what to look at, or which hall to explore next. With luck, I was able to see the entire show, only finishing my tour of duty in the final hours of the last day. Picking favorites from the plethora of builds was a task in itself.

Micky Slinger (MS): This was my third SEMA. Since 2013, I’ve been trekking out the desert, setting up basecamp at one of the hotels near the Las Vegas Convention Center (RIP Riviera, forever in our hearts), and running through its halls like a madman, camera in hand. Everyone else with a media outlet is doing the same, so you fit right in. I have to say, the builds this year were outstanding, and the vast majority were actually functional cars, which was a nice change of pace from last year’s “stance-offs.” The one thing that did remain the same was the seemingly never-ending sea of people that you will have to elbow out of the way to get to, or shoot anything.

Formula Drift Round 5 2013: Seattle, WA

Formula D threw down in Seattle, Washington for the fifth stop on the 2013 tour to perfect weather and a sold-out crowd. The Evergreen Speedway track has been on the schedule since 2006, and has provided some of the most dramatic finishes over the past several years. This year would be no different as there were several major shakeups in the championship point’s standings. Friday’s qualifying was topped by Darren McNamara, piloting his Falken Tire S14 to the top position with a qualify score of 97.5, one of the best so far this season. Fredric Aasbo slid into second in…

Pioneer DJ Art Mix

The Old Union Bank in downtown Los Angeles played house to the annual Pioneer DJ Art Mix event this passed October. Against the backdrop of the Los Angeles Art Walk, which draws 10 to 15 thousand people annually, custom-designed art pieces using Pioneer's CDJ-2000nexus multi player as the canvas were auctioned off to support the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. All proceeds went toward improving music education and programs in public schools across the U.S. Bids started at only $500, and considering the Pioneer CDJ-2000nexus Professional Multi Player retails for more than two-grand, many brought in much more than a…
