Thursday 3rd November 2016. Today is half way through the SEMA show and there was still so much more to see. We woke up to a beautiful day and had a breakfast orange juice sitting around the pool and still we were talking about the previous day’s antics. We knew this was going to be a great day and we were looking forward to it. Potentially the highlight of the visit to Las Vegas?
Adam had a meeting first thing with another Ford dealers and we set of early with him. As after the meeting we were going straight to the SEMA again. On the way out from Vegas we passed some famous landmarks that look pretty normal in daylight.
The roads are just spectacular, pretty straight and in the middle of a wonderful mountain range scenery situated within the Mojave Desert, Nevada. But, did you know that Las Vegas was settled in 1905 and officially incorporated in 1911. At the close of the 20th century, it was the most populated American city founded within that century (a similar distinction earned by Chicago in the 1800s). Population growth has accelerated since the 1960s, and between 1990 and 2000 the population nearly doubled, increasing by 85.2%. Rapid growth has continued into the 21st century, and according to a 2013 estimate, the population is 603,488 with a regional population of 2,027,828.
We arrived at the dealers and left Adam to do what he does best. While we had a look around.
Once business was completed it was time to head for SEMA, on the way back we had a couple of interesting pics. Anybody would think that Yogi and Mart had been on the medicine!
We arrived at SEMA in good time and eventually found a parking space. We wasted no time in getting into the halls to explore some more.
After the tour of the inside we found some more cars outside. This by the looks of it was where the “Ricers” were hanging out, with all the bolt on bits to their cars. You either like or loath them. But, there was the odd American their to show how it should be done.
We found what we came to see in this display area. The truck that started it all and still the king of Monster Trucks – Big Foot.
Then of course the Promotional Ladies have their own little section, there wasn’t too many in this hall, but it looked like Mart was having a good time do some promotional work too!
Our next post has the very special meeting we can’t wait to share with you.
