Traditionally, the middle of October has been an extra exciting time for Speedhunters. In normal times, the annual SEMA Show is just a couple of weeks away, meaning an all-out Speedhunting assault on the Las Vegas Convention Center is almost upon us. For obvious reasons, that won’t be happening in 2020.
But perhaps more exciting than the SEMA Show itself are some of the SEMA builds that normally start showing themselves around this time of the year. Sure, many are cookie-cutter creations utilising the latest bolt-on parts for the newest enthusiast platforms and exist solely for the show, but SEMA always delivers some exceptions to the rule. In many cases, these builds are more than just few months (or weeks, or even days) in the making – they’re proper enthusiast-owned labours of automotive love. Project cars.
Just because we won’t be seeing any of these cars in Vegas this year doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate them. So, celebrating project cars is exactly what we’re going to do from now until the middle of November.
If my math is good, there are currently 14 Speedhunters projects cars taking up residence in the SH Garage, and a few more that will soon be joining them. Over the course of the next four or so weeks we’ll be bringing you a bunch of updates on our own cars, but more importantly than that, we want to hear about your project cars. If you’ve been brewing up something special in your garage over the past months, years, or perhaps even decades, now is a good time to show us what you’ve got.
Drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with 3-5 high quality JPEG images at 1920px x 1280px size, and include a short paragraph about what you’re building. Early next month, we’ll select a few of our favourites for a special IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER ‘Your Project Cars’ post.
