THEStreet Machine team is back from the annual SEMA show and are knee-deep in photos of amazing cars.

This year saw a bumper crowd of over 130,000 people through the doors of the Las Vegas convention centre to browse six packed halls full of 2500 exhibitors, as well as two huge outdoor arenas stuffed with cool cars totalling over 93,000 square metres.

There were 2000 brand new parts on display and 20-percent of the exhibitors coming from outside America, showing the $31 billion per-year American aftermarket industry is looking the healthiest it has been in five years. To give you an idea of the scale of SEMA, the show organisers reckoned that if you walked every corridor of every hall, you’d have clocked up over 108km.
