2006 SEMA Show Highlights
By Al Dente
Photos by some guy who went to the bathroom
We took hundreds of photos of Mopar stuff at SEMA, and the ones that came out we ran in our April 07 issue. We have about 300 shots that came out as black squares, which we will be happy to send you on a CD, if you mail us a written request and include $5 for postage and handling. But, as promised, here are a few more shots from SEMA. We downloaded these from the SD card in the guy from Mopar Muscles camera, when he asked us to watch is stuff when he went to the bathroom. Hell never know.
If you tired looking at cars, and there sure was enough of those, you could check out the resident tattoo artist. This guy was selling his artyou paid a bit extra for the girl. A little something to bring home and hang on your bedroom wall.
Megalow is a one-ton Megacab dually thats customized to the core. You can get a lot more info at megalow.com. these guys make a cool bolt-on custom dually long-bed style wheel flare that will also fit any 04-06 Dodge ½-to-1-ton short bed pickup.
We ran a couple of pictures of Freak show, in the April issue, but we didnt have room to show the interior, with the cool Princess phone. So here it is. Notice the weight-saving steering wheel.
Our publisher ordered this custom stretch 300C for the Mopar Action staff to go to lunch in. He even hired a Russian chauffeur, Peekup Andropov, so we wouldnt have to drive ourselves. All that in addition to raises, bonuses, 12-week vacations every other month, plus a cute little thing to come by and tuck us in at night. Is this a great company to work for, or what?
So youre the rally type, eh? This Dodge Targa Caliber, in the Mopar booth, was all set to rumble with a 300-horse 2.4 turbo.
Devin Meuccis 69 Charger was built by Extreme Metal and Paint. FBO systems built the 500-inch stroker wedge. The car was purchased from the second owner in 93, and stolen in Jan. 05 from a parking garage (prior to restoration.) It was recovered four weeks later in a chase with the Washington State Patrol.
