UPDATE Nov 4 @ 9pm: Just got back to the Hotel. I can barely walk (did about 300 squats for those extra nice low angle shots), I took 1200+ photos (from noon till 5pm) and I only covered the cars outside. I should have a couple sick albums up on MadWhips.com before I crash.
UPDATE Nov 5 @ 8am: 2008 SEMA Show Pictures Leaving hotel for Day 2! I will upload way more photos tonight!
UPDATE Nov 6 @ 9am: Today I can barely walk. Yesterday I took over 3000+ photos inside the Las Vegas Convention Center and again did close to 500 some squats for those low angle shots. My flight leaves in a couple of hours and I will probably spend the 4 hour flight processing some more photos for tonights upload to MadWhips.com. Hope you’re enjoying the photos so far!
The SEMA Show is the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world and IS NOT OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. But don’t worry about that minor detail, I plan on taking more photos than I ever have at any event so far in 2008 so that you can see all that was showcased and ready for 2009.
This car show is the Ironman of Car Shows and I have no doubt I (WhipDaddy) will be victorious in my pursuit to capture all the hottest modified and exotic cars at the SEMA Show (2000+ photos coming soon to a MadWhips.com near you).
This show will be the 20th Car Show I attended this year and will conclude my reign of car show coverage for 2008. The events I was able to cover this year were:

It’s launch will include a full on celebratory launch party, complete with give away contest prizes!
