For most of the world, the working week has wound up and the weekend has begun. It’s been an incredible five days for us here in Las Vegas at the SEMA Show, and as ever we’ve only shown you the tip of the jewel-encrusted, injected, twin turbo, 40-inch tyred, jacked-up and matte-wrapped iceberg.
My mind is already wanting to escape though; the constant bombardment of my senses from all angles has me craving for wide open spaces and a complete lack of people. I need a release; and some air. Thankfully, the surrounding Nevada desert can provide me with plenty of that, so here’s what I am going to do. At daybreak tomorrow morning I’m going for a drive. Vaughn Gittin Jr’s latest project – the Double Down RTR Mustang – has been scowling at the crowds all week, silently squatting on the show floor. It must be wondering ‘Is this what I was built for?’ Really?
I think both of us are ready to get out of here and run to the hills. I can’t wait!
