Showstoppers from the SEMA custom car show
Martin Senour Paints turned showgoers green with envy thanks to their Chevrolet Camaro.
Like the replica Eiffel Tower adorning its casino strip, Las Vegas' international car show blends class and farce.
Thousands of people within the custom car industry descend on Las Vegas each year for the Specialty Equipment Market Association, or SEMA, show.
Manufacturers and parts producers push the limits of technical possibility - and taste - at SEMA each year.
Only automotive industry members can attend the show, which is closed to the general public.
Toyota's 86, sold as Scion's FR-S in the US, was a popular platform for modifications at the show. It was treated to transformations from drifting to time attack and open-top motoring.
Vehicles are shipped from all over the US for the show, which serves as a melting pot for car culture.
Everything from off-road to lowrider, drift and drag can be found in the SEMA show halls.
