SEMA 2018 Show Photo Gallery Edelbrock Walks the Halls of the Biggest Car Show In the World

JH Restorations ShockR 1966 Mustang

The Edelbrock “Charge Forward” display at SEMA 2018 featured new products coming in 2019 with the JH Restorations “ShockR” Mustang pulling in the spectators. ShockR is a 1966 Ford Mustang powered by an Edelbrock-supercharged Coyote engine under the hood.

Two million square feet of show space, plus the overflow. That’s how much ground you had to cover if your mission was to see everything that the 2018 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show had to offer. It’s the largest automotive trade event in the world and if you’ve ever been to SEMA in the past, you know that it’s virtually impossible to take it all in, even for those who stay for the entire four days. There’s just too much to see.

As it has been with each passing year, SEMA 2018 was the biggest yet. And while the business of the show is about the latest new products and, for many businesses, opening up new relations and re-establishing old ones, let’s face it…the cars and trucks are the stars. The wildest and most outrageous…the best of the best is what you’ll find in the manufacturer displays or in the many featured vehicle halls. Builds that have been coming together all year—since the last SEMA Show—arrive in Las Vegas and are kept under covers until the start of the show. The day one unveilings elicit the oohs and aahs as builders introduce their latest choices in vehicles and the trends in colors and modifications that are either hits or misses.

Edelbrock-equipped BMW M3 with LS1 Chevy engine

Another popular attraction in the Edelbrock “Charge Forward” booth was the Hoonigan’s Knuckle Buster BMW M3 powered by an LS1 engine with Edelbrock LS3 conversion heads and Cross Ram intake.

Edelbrock was out in force with a preview of new products coming in 2019 that included the new 800cfm AVS2 Series Carburetor, a first-ever high-performance cylinder head for the 6.6L Chevy Duramax Diesel engine that is 50-states emissions legal, a new line of Edelbrock engine blocks, and several new E-Force Supercharger applications. Drawing spectators into the Edelbrock booth this year was JH Restorations’ badass ShockR 1966 Mustang with an Edelbrock-supercharged Coyote engine. Alongside the ShockR was the Edelbrock/LS-powered Knuckle Busters BMW M3 build with the Hoonigan’s Danger Dan signing autographs next to it. On the final day, show-goers in the booth were treated to a surprise visit from Edelbrock-sponsored Top Fuel racer Audrey Worm, who rolled into Vegas in preparation for the Auto Club NHRA Finals coming up this week in Pomona.

ShockR 1966 Mustang

Aside from the Edelbrock-supercharged Coyote engine, the amount of detail in JH Restorations’ ’66 ShockR Mustang is what earned its place in the 2018 Edelbrock display.
