Max Prince can't un-see what he saw at SEMA

At 8:30am, I fall in with the masses being herded into Las Vegas Convention Center for the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. More than 135,000 people will pass through these limo-tinted doors before Saturday, and I'm told there's no way any one meager man can see everything that's inside. It's the… » 11/14/14 4:05pm 11/14/14 4:05pm

This 980 Horsepower '66 Chevelle Has A Fighter Jet Cockpit

The 2014 SEMA show was a very good one for American muscle, with cars like the Ford Mustang King Cobra and the revival of the famous Yenko Camaro. But the SEMA Muscle Crown (Is that a thing? It should be a thing) goes to a car called "Recoil." It's a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle with 980 horsepower and an interior that's… » 11/06/14 3:21pm 11/06/14 3:21pm

Just when I think General Motors' SEMA offerings will be total duds this year, they go and totally redeem themselves with a very badass 1971 Corvette powered by a brand new LT1 crate motor from a modern Corvette Stingray. It's for Jimmie Johnson, a man who knows more than a little bit about speed. » 11/04/14 2:55pm 11/04/14 2:55pm

This Boring Camry Is An 850 HP Sleeper That'll Melt Your Eyeballs Off


The Toyota Camry is the gold standard of beige. Apparently knowing that full well, Toyota saw fit to take to SEMA the ultimate Sleeper Camry. No, seriously. That's what they're calling it – the Toyota Sleeper Camry. And it's got an 850 horsepower, supercharged, nitrous-injected V8 that will make you scream for momma. » 11/04/14 2:36pm 11/04/14 2:36pm

GM Knows The 2015 Chevy Colorado Looks Cooler Without That Chin Spoiler

Here's the second "modified" 2015 Chevy Colorado as presented by GM. It's just like the first one; establishing that a roll bar, bikes, stickers, and removing the front spoiler rounds out Chevy's "how to quickly and cheaply make a Colorado look cool" list. If the spoiler must stay, can we at least get a quick-release? » 11/03/14 1:41pm 11/03/14 1:41pm
