Vehicles of the 2009 SEMA Show

About this product:

Just when you think you’ve seen everything, it’s time for the SEMA Show and a whole new panorama of vehicular sculpture. Virtually every type of car, truck and—new this year—powersports machine appears in this automotive carnival. While the premise of the event is mainly business—the place where the products that will appear on cars next year are ordered by retailers and jobbers today—the SEMA Show is also a gallery of works produced by the greatest custom builders in the country. The annual SEMA News “Vehicles of the Show” preview provides a mere sampling of what will be parked in and around the Las Vegas Convention Center.

I Can Dream Can’t I?

About this product:

Yesterday, when I unlocked the door to my store, there was a line of people waiting. Fortunately, my two counter people were on time and waiting behind the counter. One was at a point-of-sale terminal, and the other was at the Internet order pick-up desk. Six customers came through the door, and four cued up for Internet pick-up. Nathan, my lead counterman, immediately approached the attractive female and asked if he could help (typical) while I waited on the male customer.
