If it had quad exhausts that popped out, and 80% tined windows, I'd have thought it was real :p

SEMA has been 100% carbage for years.

Don't be too harsh on the show. Its more like 99.5% carbage.

That Challenger SRT10 concept for instance..... thats not carbage in the least.

:| ... I don?t think that looks too bad ... it?s well made at least ... and even the proportions aren?t bad. If I?d walked past that I wouldn?t feel the urge to kill it ...

The worst thing about it is the numberplate IMO (what a clot!), apart from that I think we?ve seen a lot worse here.

This whole stand at MPH08. Full of the kind of cars idiots from football buy.



Matt black Maybach and Gallardo. A selection of SUVs at the back etc etc etc. Horrible stuff.

Flat black looks better than some gaudy color like yellow or orange. Not carbage IMO. Lip on the wheel is a bit iffy

OK I do sort of agree with you there, and I do believe I took the photo in the wrong bit of that stand. At the back of the photo you can see the white cars, which were ghastly (look at the Cayenne! Actually, don't.) They even did it to a new Challenger.

I'm always staggered when so much skilled work goes into something like that... seems such a waste.

Yeah, why don't they be like the guy who built that Countach from scratch in his garage instead of basing it on some rubbish cheap car.

Or he could shoehorn a ZR1 engine into the solstice.

*I keep having dreams of buying a ZR1 crate engine.
