Meguiar’s to Present Car Crazy International Vehicle Showcase at SEMA Show

Oct 3, 2011

Top show cars from around the world will be on display at the SEMA Show, held Nov. 1-4 in Las Vegas.

Out of thousands of car shows attended by Meguiar’s representatives in over 90 countries, the owners of nine of the top show cars in the world accepted the company’s invitation to display their cars at the SEMA Show, which will be brought in from across the globe by Passport Transport.

These cars will be on display, front and center, outside the convention hall beside the SEMA Car Crazy TV Stage. Throughout the four days of the show, the car owners will be a major attraction along with their cars, providing insight into the car hobby in their respective countries.

“The car hobby is a global fraternity that shares an amazingly consistent passion for vastly different cars,” said Barry Meguiar, president of Meguiar’s. “We attempt to capture this phenomenon with our ‘Car Crazy TV’ Show on SPEED Channel, and now we are doing it live at SEMA. Having nine cars for our first year is a great start on what we believe will become a major feature at the SEMA Show.”

The number of quality show cars that capture the essence and excitement of the car hobby is staggering, according to the company.

Meguiar’s was determined to keep this an authentic program by having the local automotive aficionados lead in the selection process.

Additionally, cars chosen to represent specific countries had to capture the overall global car hobby spirit by exciting car enthusiasts of all types, reflect incredible paintwork that is maintained both inside and out, include ground breaking design or be exceptionally eye-catching and most importantly, have a unique back story.

Some of the vehicles that are set to be on display include a 1953 Ford Truck F100 from Costa Rica, a 1939 Lincoln Zephyr Custom from Mexico and a 1978 XC GS Ford Falcon Hardtop from Australia.

Before making their way to the SEMA Show, the cars will stop at the Marconi Automotive Museum in Tustin, California, for private showings to museum visitors during the month of October.
