Rejuvenation for Older and Vintage Vehicles

Vehicle restoration is a time-honored tradition among automotive enthusiasts, and the aftermarket makes it all possible.

The 2018 SEMA Show featured a robust-as-ever restoration market with leading exhibitors in the category introducing a wide range of innovations to buyers in the New Products Showcase. The following pages highlight those Showcase products, along with some helpful observations from industry experts about current trends impacting the category.
