HRIA always bring the “best of the best” to the SEMA Show each year, and 2019 was no exception. The HRIA vehicle selection task force brought not one, but TWO gorgeous 69 Camaros to be unveiled to the public AND to their owners in the HRIA booth. When the covers were pulled off at 11 am on Tuesday morning there were over 200 people crowded around the booth to witness, the largest crowd yet for an HRIA unveiling.
A total of 9 vehicle were on hand representing the HRIA, 3 in the booth and 5 more outside. The 5 vehicles parked outside are also moved to the Westgate ballroom on Wednesday to participate and bear witness to the HRIA Awards reception. One of those 5 was actually selected by SEMA to be used in a short video with Blue Man Group and be part of the entertainment on Thursday at the SEMA Banquet. The HRIA feature vehicle program serves more purpose than simply taking up display space or providing a backdrop. The booth and prime outdoor locations are perfect to showcase the talents of the builders and the application of many HRIA member company products. Several of today’s most recognized builders are quick to point to their experience as an HRIA feature vehicle as the catalyst that launched their career.
Congratulations and thank you to the following builders who brought their best to the 2019 SEMA Show to represent the HRIA.
