America loves trucks, and SEMA does, too. Here are our favorites.
Mayhem Metal Works' 1958 Chevy has three big turbos!
Banks Engineering started off with a rusted, $1 farm truck and went to town. Too much to mention here, but it's centered around a GM LFP diesel with a Whipple supercharger. More details to come in separate story.
The builder of this stretched and lowered Chevy put "Bankrupt/35"
where normally it would say C/10. Ha ha ha.
Chip Foose's 1967 C/28 debuted at SEMA in 2018. The 28 refers to the truck's engine, which came from a Camaro Z/28.
The Pure Metal Works Chevy C/10. That's a fuel filter system and
new@396maro C10 taillights there at the back.
This 2003 Mercedes Unimog U500 was driven to the show from San Francisco and will be driven to Denver right after the show. The driver told us it was "real comfortable. You sit way up there with all the semis." Only 187 of these were brought into the US from 2003-2006.
This looks like Greg Tidwell's ocean blue 1940 Ford that just won America's Most Beautiful Truck at the Grand National Truck Show.
This is crazy cool, but all we know is it's a Ford. More info as soon as we dig it up. Stand by.
Dual-engine rat-roddish truck.
Both V8s drive what must be a pair of chains inside the back assembly forward of the wheels, which must turn the drive shaft to spin the rear wheels. That's what it looks like. What do you see? There was no one there to ask.
Low, low, low.
Roadster Shop's 1976 Square Body K10. They off three versions of the RS: a do-it-yourself kit, a body-swap that they do in their shop, or you just tell them what you want and they do everything.
That's the real Chip Foose himself, polishing his first truck, which he bought from his dad. The truck was later "stolen" from him by his own Overhaulin' TV show crew and restored to the shape you see here. And yes, those are Foose wheels.
Hellion Turbo's latest build, a Ram. Note pedestrian impact structure at front.
What better way to show off your Silverado dashboard?
This one was parked in the South Hall with other customs.
1965 Ford F-100 by K-32 Kustoms of Boxer Springs, Kansas.
