SEMA Heritage: Leo Kagan Opens the 1978 SEMA Show

It’s 1978, and then-SEMA President Leo Kagan is driving an antique car onto the floor of the SEMA Show in just its second year at the Las Vegas Convention Center. In the back seat of the car are Robert and Margie Petersen, who were instrumental in producing the very first SEMA Show back in 1967.
