Hot-Rod Products

SEMA News—June 2015

HOT-ROD PRODUCTS

It’s All About Performance

From the very first SEMA Show in 1967, hot rodding has remained a highly influential niche within the specialty-equipment marketplace. That heritage was again on display at the recent SEMA Show’s Hot Rod Alley, where attendees were able to examine first hand the amazing parts and craftsmanship that go into custom-built rods. These are vehicles that can trace their lineage from post-WWII dry-lake racing, through the street scenes of the ’50s and the ’70s musclecar era, to the restomod movement of today.

Accordingly, the New Products Showcase at the 2014 SEMA Show featured numerous fresh and innovative items for the category along with a full array of featured products from performance companies throughout the industry. The following pages offer a look at these hot-rod products, which continue to breathe new life and performance into a legacy market.
