ANOTHER ONE DOWN. The SEMA show has come and gone once again, and as such, we’ve got a truckload of content to sift through in the following pages. As we bid farewell to 2019 and venture into the unknown waters of 2020, the 2019 SEMA show serves as a look back through the trends and iconic builds of the past year.

As you can imagine, this issue will focus primarily on the 2019 SEMA show, featuring new products that were showcased on the show floor, the show’s most awe-inspiring builds, and everything in between that made the show so special. The Toyota Supra is well represented here, as there was roughly 50 of them on the show floor this year. So many that we put together an entire article on the A90 Supras of SEMA 2019.

We compiled a wide range of SEMA coverage like the overall show coverage, the Editor’s Top 10 SEMA Cars, and so much more that you’ll discover within these pages. The 7th annual Tuner Battlegrounds Championship hit the show floor this year, bringing Kalvin Malli's 1990 Nissan 300ZX and Anthony Do’s 1993 Nissan 240sx head to head for the duration of the show, and we’ve got it all right here!

We also talked with Mitchell of Button Built to get an idea of what it takes to build a custom widebody Ferrari to Toyo Tires Treadpass standards for the big show, and he walks us through the process from conception to execution in one of our most impressive SEMA features to date.

In 2019 we partnered with over 30 events. As always, we spotlight a few Tuner Battlegrounds #TBGLIVE competitors/winners - Mindy Hearring (2013 Subaru WRX), Jonhathan Valenzuela (2013 Subaru WRX STI), and Rob Balser (2001 BMW 740iL).

This is just the beginning of all the content we’ve crammed into this issue, so get to page flipping! Happy holidays (BTW check out our Holiday Gift Guide) and a happy new year to all of you from our team here at PASMAG. We’ll see you again in 2020!
